6 Pastel Pieces for Your Easter Table
You might want to hide these accessories from the Easter Bunny, otherwise he’ll be stealing treats instead of leaving them.
Every holiday has its colour scheme. For Valentine’s Day, it’s red and pink. For Halloween, it’s orange and black. For Christmas, it’s silver and gold (and red and green, and snowy white…). Once those holidays are over, however, our themed decor gets packed into boxes—where it remains unused until the following year. Not Easter though!
Okay…there are some bunny accessories that should be put away. But if you go for subtle over kitsch—like we did in choosing the pastel tableware below—you can bring ’em out for the rest of spring (and beyond).
1. Speck-tacular Showpiece
Simply pop the cork top off this speckled Linen canister (from $50), toss in a few fresh tulips, and you’ve got the perfect centrepiece. Available in medium and mini sizes. nineteenten.ca
2. Well Nested
Whether you’re serving soft-boiled eggs for breakfast or setting the table with calligraphed-egg placeholders, these Bird Nest egg cups ($5 each) are exactly what you need. thecrossdesign.com
3. Blues Brothers
Menu’s salt-and-pepper Bottle Grinder set ($98) is available in a range of colour combinations, but it’s this robins-egg blue pair that’s best suited for the Easter table. vanspecial.com
4. Pretty in Purple
Like Easter eggs, every single one of these hand-painted Gilded Lilac dinner plates ($26 each) is unique. anthropologie.com
5. Easter Sun-Day
It wouldn’t be Easter without Peeps—or in this case, Peeps-yellow serveware. Use the Oval French Oven ($490) from Le Creuset for all your roasting needs this weekend. lecreuset.ca
