I just discovered a new blog with a fun suggestion to dress up your table for Easter. Based on the project from Martha Stewart, Shak in Style explains to us how to make a cute bunny ear napkin. It does not seem hard to do and it looks good.
On a picture, you see a yellow rim plate. A more current look is to use a green edge plate or a light fruit pattern plate. Green is the color of the year. From Villeroy and Boch, I spot the same plate as suggested by Shak in Style but in green. For Easter and all summer long, the Bloom dinner plate will look great if you can afford to buy an extra fantasy plate. The Wildberries collection by Villeroy & Boch displays deep berry purples and rich fertile greens. A punch of color in a nice classic pattern
If you prefer a country look, the Casa Azul Limon is cute for a more casual Easter brunch. Instead of the bunny napkins, I would suggest you opt for the Easter Basket Favors. This is another MarthaStewart.com craft project.
In both cases, you can set up your tabletop in white dinnerware with color table linens as accents. If your plates are solid white, green or orange napkins will bring more visual impacts. Orange is another hot color this year; very hot in Europe.
To add to the design of your Easter tabletop, you can mix some carrots in a green vase with some light orange tulips to create a striking centerpiece. I am sorry that my leg injury makes it hard for me to provide you with pictures of my design ideas. For inspiration, think of the green fabric vase with orange ribbons that you can see on the Bridal shower table by Colin Cowie featured on Oprah TV show. This is a cheap and easy to do alternative. I discover it when reading an interesting blog about entertaining called Hostess with the Mostess.
Do you have tips on creating a stylish tabletop for the Easter brunch? If so, tell us about it.

Debi: I corrected the links. It appear that the the links on Martha Stewart changed since I first published the post. Sadly, the programmers did not create permanent redirect links.
