Need to do some last-minute Easter decor shopping? Check out HGTV.com MarketPlace. The MarketPlace team has amassed more than 1 million products of all kinds and packaged them in a kick-butt, user-friendly database. There are several ways to search including by topic, by room, by products featured on HGTV and by holiday – such as this page, featuring everything Easter. This year, I don’t have a lot of time to fuss with decorating, so I’ll focus on one thing – my dining room table.
Just for fun, I put together a few things that would treat my table (and my guests) well during this blessed holiday season. Products expert Mariana Gallegos made the task easier and a lot more fun, because I was able to “shop” among the hundreds of Easter-related items she had gathered and grouped into ”wish lists” such as this one for Easter entertaining. No clicking around. No searching. Easy as Easter pie.
A Lily of the Valley centerpiece. Three of them, lined up down the middle of the table – atop an heirloom, white tablecloth.
Rose Leaf Place Mats at every chair.
Bunny and Cabbage display dishes used exactly as Grandin Road has illustrated – as namecard holders for personalized Easter eggs. For evening gatherings, use a tealight instead.
Feather Ducks randomly placed around the centerpiece so that every guest can enjoy one. These are so realistic, it’s as if a family of feathered friends joined the celebration. You can’t get much more festive than that.
