Pastel Easter Inspiration

I’ve always loved traditional pastels for Easter, and this year I wanted to incorporate the entire rainbow of pastel hues into my tablescape. I found my inspiration in a vintage hand-stitched quilt that I’ve had for years. Rather than a traditional tablecloth, I used this quilt to set the scene of my pastel Easter table.

Using an old quilt from your collection is an inexpensive way to add some personality to your table. You can also use smaller quilts on side tables, and layer them for interest.

I’ve included two variations for setting the table, to give you different ideas on how to mix and match your vintage pieces and style them in different ways.

Pastel Easter Place Settings

I decided to use white for each place setting to contrast the lively pastel tablecloth, and these vintage Westmoreland milk glass plates were a perfect fit. The intricate “Forget me knot” pattern is perfect for spring and easter tables. I layered larger paper plates in Amaranth pink and Lavender purple underneath to add some depth.

I used a mix of vintage Indiana Park Lane and Hazel Atlas Glass goblets alongside the charming hobnail milk glass punch cups by Fenton. I love mixing glassware for an eclectic look. It also keeps the tablescape more casual and less stuffy.

For the silverware, I used antique pieces that I have collected over the years. The floral patterns are darling for spring.

Then I paired crisp white embroidered cotton napkins with some DIY napkin rings. I had this lovely vintage scalloped edge ribbon in my sewing stash and knew I wanted to use it somehow…so I decided to hot-glue it onto some plain plastic napkin rings. An easy way to customize your napkin rings!

If you don’t want to use napkin rings you can also place the folded napkin under the top plate as shown below.

Pastel Easter Favors:

It’s always nice to greet guests at the table with a little sweet treat on Easter, and nothing could be more fitting than an Easter basket with eggs. I used miniature glass baskets and filled them with Cadbury Mini Eggs nestled on top of iridescent easter grass. Then I tied on a sweet pastel pink velvet bow.

You could easily add a nametag to each of these to help guests find their seats.

Pastel Easter Centerpiece

Depending on where you live, finding appropriate easter flowers to match your tablescape may be more trouble than it’s worth. It can also be quite costly.

I decided to raid my faux flower stash for some pink peonies and a mix of cream and lavender roses. Since I like my centerpiece to be symmetrical, I created two arrangements in matching diamond-cut glass trumpet vases. These flank either side of the center arrangement, for which I used stunningly real-looking white tulips and purple tulips.

I used a milk glass hobnail pitcher as a vase for the center to match the plates and cups, as well as matching hobnail candlesticks with pastel pink taper candles.

As a variation to the pitcher, I’ve also used a milk glass pedestal Urn vase, which is a tad more formal, but equally charming.

I happened upon these darling handmade fabric easter eggs (circa 1980s) at my local thrift store and knew they would be perfect to fill in around the floral arrangements.

And finally, for some additional candlelight, I used iridescent pink glass votive holders around the table.

Strawberry Lime Easter Punch

For my signature easter drink, I crafted a fruity strawberry lime punch that everyone can enjoy. This simple sweet and tart drink is so refreshing and bursting with strawberry flavor. Here’s how to make it:

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz. Simply Limeade Juice
  • 1/2 oz. Strawberry Simple Syrup (recipe below)
  • 1/2 oz. Fresh squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 oz. Rose Water
  • Fresh Strawberries for garnish
  • Ice

Instructions:

  1. In a cocktail shaker combine the limeade, strawberry syrup, lemon juice, and rose water.
  2. Shake vigorously with ice and pour unstrained into your glass.
  3. Garnish with chopped strawberries or a wedge on the rim of the glass.

How to make Strawberry Simple Syrup:

Tools:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups of fresh strawberries, washed, hulled, and chopped.

Instructions:

  1. Add water, sugar, and strawberries to the saucepan. Bring the water to a boil and stir gently until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  2. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes. Stir gently occasionally. Avoid crushing the strawberries as this will make the syrup cloudy.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool.
  4. Strain out the solids and transfer the syrup to a syrup bottle with a tight seal.
  5. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

This will yield about 1 ½ cups (12 oz.) of strawberry syrup.

For an adult-only libation, I created the Strawberry Bourbon cocktail. A must-try for bourbon lovers and the perfect complement to an Easter Sunday brunch.

Pastel Easter Treats

It’s not Easter at our house without Peeps, so of course this has to be a part of the Easter table celebration. I used my Jeannette Shell Pink tray to arrange them by color.

Other treats include Pink Champagne Macarons, Cadbury Mini Eggs, and a regal handmade chocolate bunny from our local candy shop sitting on a vintage Westmoreland milk glass cross plate.

I adorned a small coconut cake with these sweet little pink flocked bunnies I found at Hobby Lobby.
