Easter Table With Bluebonnets

Friday, April 3, 2020

Easter's on its way! 

See all the details of my special Easter table setting with a bluebonnet centerpiece and handmade Easter paper cones as party favors. The table is set with my favorite color combination, blue and white. 

Easter Table With Bluebonnets is one of my all time favorite blue and white table settings
This Easter table may be my favorite table setting of all time. Bluebonnets, white dishes, French Country white scroll flatware,  etched blue stem glasses, blue-speckled chocolate candy eggs, handmade paper cones... What is there not to love? And, there's that adorable lamb with an impish grin on his face.

Thank you, Amber of Follow the Yellow Brick Home, for hosting a wonderful spring blog hop, Easter's On Its Way! and for inviting me to join over 20 of my creative blogging friends as we share our ideas for Easter and Spring.

It is bluebonnet season in north Texas, and I love having my own bluebonnets in the backyard. They were the inspiration for this year's Easter table setting. 

We are keeping our Easter traditions even when it is just a few of us "sheltering in place." A special Easter table is just what we need to keep our spirits up, don't you think?  



Easter Table With Bluebonnets cut from my backyard
While I can cut all of the bluebonnets I want to bring inside, I limit myself to just one or two arrangements each spring so there will be plenty of bluebonnet seeds outside for next year's flowers. 

An Easter table is so special it merits one of this year's bluebonnet bouquets. 




Easter Bluebonnets begin as soft blue florets and darken as they grow
Bluebonnets come in many shades of blue in the wild, but the dark brilliant blue is the most common shade found in pastures, along highways, and my backyard. 

The opening florets begin as soft blues and darken as they grow. All of the blues go well with the French blues throughout my house. 




Easter Table With Bluebonnets Centerpiece with an adorable lamb with an impish grin
The adorable lamb with its impish grin fits perfectly in front of the bluebonnet bouquet, and he brings a smile to all who see him. 




Easter Table With Bluebonnets began with pale blue placemats with a single large white flower
Pale blue placemats with a single white flower set off the white place settings and go with the handmade paper cones at each place. 

Spring is visible outside the window with all the fresh, vibrant greens. This spot is one the favorites in my house for everyone, especially visitors. 




Easter Table With Bluebonnets have French Country white scroll flatware at each place setting
French Country white scroll flatware pairs perfectly with the white dishes with scrolled edges. This white flatware goes with everything and always adds a special French touch to any place setting. 




Easter Table With Bluebonnets has pale blue stemware with a floral etched design
Delicate pale blue stemware with a floral etched design coordinates with the table's colors and with the season, a time for blooms. 





Easter Table With Bluebonnets continues a family tradition of Easter treats with handmade paper cones
An Easter tradition in our family is to have Easter treats. This year's special treat is a handmade paper cone with blue-speckled chocolate candy eggs at each place setting for adults as well as children. 

See my last post, DIY Easter Paper Cones | Blue Speckled Candy Eggs, for details and instructions for how to make your own paper cones.  With Easter a little over a week away, you have plenty of time to make these. Or, for your children to make and to leave on the doorstep to surprise their grandparents for Easter. 




Easter Table With Bluebonnets has handmade blue paper cones filled with blue candy eggs
When I began the table ideas, I planned to use white paper grass in the blue paper cones, but realized the table needed a touch of green to go with the green outside the window and with the bluebonnet bouquet. 

The dark green wood grass showcases the blue candy eggs so much better than a pale-colored paper grass. 




Each place setting has a DIY paper cone with a fleur de lis wax seal on the Easter Table With Bluebonnets
A white fleur de lis wax seal adds more of my favorite decorating style, French Country, to the Easter table with bluebonnets. 




Easter Table With Bluebonnets has several little details to create a French Country style
Little details make a big difference. And, all the little details come together to create a signature style, French Country. 

Keeping our traditions alive during unusual times makes all the difference in creating joy. 



Happy Easter 

from my table to yours 



Next up is my good friend, Katie at Let's Add Sprinkles. Please hop over to see how she is welcoming Easter at her home. And then visit all of my other good blogging friends who are sharing how they are celebrating spring and Easter to create joy in their homes. 

Be safe. Be joyous!

No shopping for several weeks due to "sheltering in place" to stay safe and to keep others safe. Everything used in the Easter table setting is from years gone by, collected from the backyard, or made using materials on hand. 

When you buy what you love over the years, you will create a collection that goes together, and one that never goes out of style!

  1. Judith, your consistent approach to styling your home always leave me with a sense of calm. This Easter table is really beautiful. The flatware and stemware are my favorites, as is the centerpiece of bluebonnets. The green in the arrangement and how you've used it in the cones punctuates and complements the blue so beautifully. Whenever I think of my Texas friends, bluebonnets come to mind. I was lucky to receive some seeds from one blogger friend and started some of my own in my zone 7a garden before we sold. I hope the new owners are enjoying them too. Happy Easter, my friend. Soon we will all be smiling like the little lamb as we're able to get out and rejoin our friends and family.

  4. Judith, I remember your Afternoon Tea In The Bluebonnets post, and thought how can it get any better, but this table with a bluebonnet bouquet is so lovely too. Love the blue and white French country touches and the tradition of Easter treats for everyone. I'll have to pop over to see the details on the paper cones. Happy Easter!

  6. How did I miss you were originally from Alabama?! Well, since you love blue and white so much and do it so well, Texas was meant for you! And I couldn't agree more when you said "When you buy what you love over the years, you will create a collection that goes together, and one that never goes out of style!". Although it has taken me years to finally get to that realization. Love your entire table Judith! Big hugs and Happy Easter to you and your family!

  9. What a lovely table, Judith! First, your Bluebonnet centerpiece is so pretty and it coordinates perfectly with your place mats. I love your silverware pattern paired with your white dishes and lovely glasses. I'm headed over to read how you made the cones that are on each place setting. Your guest will love their chocolate treats!

  16. You had me at the word, bluebonnet.

    I don't think I have ever seen any in person - I know I would love a field of bluebonnets.

  17. What a precious table setting! Oh you are making me love blue more and more with every visit!

    I thought your sweet table couldn't get any more special, and then I noticed the wax seal on the paper cones...what a lovely detail.

    I agree that Easter warrants bringing in a bouquet of Bluebonnets! They are a reminder of God's artistry and the beauty he has blessed us with in nature.

    Beautiful post! Happy Easter!

  18. Judith, this is a favorite for me too. Like you, I've been cutting bluebonnets to bring indoors for petite bouquets. This week I even cut some other blooms because I'm missing my market flowers. The white scroll flatware is a pattern I'd like to add to my table top stash. I've long admired it.
    Thanks for the inspiration of this simply beautiful table.

  21. Judith, I adore your bluebonnets! How fabulous to have them growing in your own yard. I love true blue flowers and they are hard to find here in Pittsburgh that aren't actually some shade of purple. Thanks for sharing their beauty.

  22. Judith, I love blue bonnets! Three or four years ago hubby and I signed up for a blue bonnet photo class in Texas. It was a bad year and not a lot to find. :(
    Still, we had a great travel time and saw a lot of beautiful places. Made it to Waco and that was a real fun trip! Sheepish lamb is darling and perfect for the table. I also love your sweet cones. It's the little things.
    hugs,
    Jann

  24. Judith, your table is beautiful and so ethereal with all the blue and white and just a touch of green... Thinking I need to toss out some bluebonnet seeds for next spring from my seed stash.

    Happy Easter,
    Barb :)
