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.
(If you see something you like from my imaginary holiday tablescape below and you want to learn more, click the photo.)
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.
