One of the things I’ve been getting known for recently are my tablescapes. I created my first one on Mother’s Day a couple of years ago and it slowly became my thing for every holiday. I have to say, I really enjoy creating a fun space for my family to gather around the table to enjoy a good meal and each other’s company.
The inspiration behind this year’s set up was the tea cups that my father-in-love’s auntie gifted me. Everytime we go back to Kansas City we always make time to visit our cute little aunt Bertha. Over time, we’ve developed a relationship to the point where she let me pick out a few things out of her fancy china hutch to keep.
Coming from a family of immigrants, I don’t have any heirlooms so these little tea sets are extra special to me since they’re technically my first family inheritance — what makes it even more special is that it came from my husband’s side of the family. She actually took the time to wrap each one and pack them in a box to ship all the way to Utah.
There were so many sets that she gifted me, I thought it would be fun to mix and match for each individual setting. Being Latina, coffee is a must at every meal so I thought it would be fun to enjoy our croissants and coffee in these cute cups.
The glassware are also gifts from his aunt and thought they would make the perfect cups for the grown-ups to enjoy mimosas in the tall green stemmed ones, while the kids to enjoy their orange juice in the small blue cups… with straws of course.
Who else is addicted to cake pops? Shoutout to Starbucks for not only getting adults hooked on them but also our kids. Everytime I go through the drive-thru window Cayden always asks for one and Jaylen has caught on. When I saw that Williams Sonoma had special Easter ones made, I had to get them. They make for the cutest centerpieces too!
While we’re on the subject of Williams Sonoma, this bunny linen tablecloth was also part of their Easter collection and is even more gorgeous in person. I love that it has almost every pastel color, making it easy to coordinate dinnerware and centerpieces like these pink and green candlestick holders.
Since I was going for a garden tea party theme, I called my girl Alexis at Utah Flower Wall to see if she could set up this beautiful garden wall for me to make it feel like spring indoors. If you ever want a wow factor at any gathering, a flower wall will do just that.
When my kids came down and saw it, it brightened their mood and even little Jaylen couldn’t get enough of it.
I hope that my little creation sparked some creative juices for you and that you’re able to put a memorable table of your own for such a special holiday.
Not pictured here are daddy’s famous bacon strips, egg whites, pancakes, breakfast potatoes, and fresh fruit. We’ll be adding those on Sunday morning.
Easter is big deal for us because of what it means for us Christians so I tend to go big for it. I can’t wait for Sunday and hope that you have an amazing Easter with your loved ones!
