From time to time I will be adding some tablesettings and tablescapes suggestions to enhance your dining experience. I will also be offering tips and basic tablesetting protocols so be sure to check back often.
Today, I will start by sharing my Easter dinner table setting. I would class this as a semi-formal setting. I have taken the secondary color of lavender in my Royal Albert china pattern “Lavender Rose” and used that as the inspiration for my tulip color choice. It is not always necessary to have all of the flowers in a floral centerpiece on the table. Flowers can be interspersed throughout the tablescape as they are here with one added at each place setting. So long as they are all the same color flower, or in the same color scheme, this works. Tulips were an obvious choice for me because they are a symbol of Spring, they are a simplistic flower with wonderful leaves, they last well – I usually get 7-8 days out of bouquet of tulips, they are quite easy to arrange, and they are relatively inexpensive compared to other flowers such as roses that don’t tend to have the same longevity.
