Invite cool chicks and a pop of color to your Easter tablescape

oval and pop of color at the easter tableware

This tablescape celebrates the Easter egg from a different perspective. A Sunday brunch with kids calls for a whimsical table. I infused a fresh treatment to a predictable theme. All I had to do was to mix bright colors with uncommon tableware.

Vibrant accent colors

The felt Chicken cozies are the stars of my table. Denise from Black Eiffel spots those cute ones on the April issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine. Make those in two to four colors since you want to inject a punch of color to an otherwise white theme.

Once the cozies are removed, the colorful double old-fashioned and the highballs of the Rustica Barware collection maintain the vibrant pop of color to the table.

Designed by Yousuke Shimizu, these spectacular shallow bamboo bowls would be perfect as serving bowls for the cereals, the oatmeal and any other dry food. The bamboo bowls combine the 2 key design elements.

Oval tableware

Planet dinnerware exhibits an oval shape with unique slanted rims. This everyday series contains a dinner plate, a salad plate and a bowl. I prefer to buy my every day coffee cups separately; often of a different style. At this low price, you can indulge and buy a new dinnerware set for your Easter brunch. And you would not worry about the kids using your china.


A simple green apple display is all you need. Whatever you choose, keep it simple. I saw a pretty green apple arrangement when I went to the spa of the Fairmount Sonoma Mission Inn but it seems that I forgot to take a picture. Basically, you pile a bunch of green apples in a chopped top-down pyramidal shape. Start with a rectangular base of 7 to 10 apples long by 3 to 4 apples wide. Reduce the perimeter as you move up for 3 to 4 rows. You will get enough apples for everyone can eat an apple during or after the meal.
