Last year’s Easter table was a biggie. Very much inspired by nature and the woodlands that surround Connecticut Country House, I set my table using lots of interesting textures and colors from twig placemats intertwined with faux moss and clover to soft Robin’s Egg Blue salad plates to faux mossed bunnies and birds nests.

Creating a foundation with the twig placemats really helped set a magical tone, and because they cover most of the table, there was no need for a tablecloth. Building upon them with white and pretty soft blue plates topped with spring green faux moss bunnies, added a wonderful whimsical touch. Inexpensive little nests were filled with chocolate eggs, as well as real eggs, and twig baskets were potted with small spring flowers: pansies and grape hyacinth. This year, it’s a smaller, more intimate table setting. Instead of faux moss bunnies, I’ll top off each placesetting with one of my little NMCH Chocolate Bunny candles…of course! ?

The nature-inspired woodland placemats, plates, and nests have turned out to be in use year round here at Connecticut Country House. I love them…they’re a staple…and I found them for you!

    Love it. Wish we could plan an Easter meal outdoors. Here in Michigan most years it is still too cold. I could do something like this inside of course but it would just be so much more beautiful outside. Thanks for sharing.
