The Blooming Easter Lunch Place Setting

Simple style elements may be added to tables set for special celebrations using items that may be found around the home. Egg cups make a lovely vessel to showcase some of springs most iconic blooms. Pansies, violas, snapdragons & other annual bedding plants may be borrowed for the day & then returned to their garden location afterwards. Give the miniature arrangements a signature touch by typing & printing each persons name on a standard piece of typing paper, then cut them out, attach to card stock & secure to a small wooden pick with a smidgen of glue. Learn how to apply this simple idea to complete the look.

How To Create Blooming Easter Lunch Place Settings

Creating a lovely place setting is such a fine way to celebrate Easter lunch, however they need not be opulent nor complex. A few pieces of newly polished heirloom silver & a pressed napkin are all that is needed to create this effortless look. Use what you have in your linen collection & if it’s colorful, all the better to highlight the season. Just know, there is no right or wrong way to set a beautiful table so let go of past notions & let the food you will serving guide you. In most instances, a dinner fork, knife, napkin, plate & glass will suffice.

 When you purchase a standard napkin, the fold is generally formed so that it may be opened from the side. When placing a napkin on the center of a plate as illustrated in this particular photo, I prefer to center it as well meaning the napkin will open upwards. A quick refolding is all that is needed to change the direction that may be set in place by pressing with a hot iron.

This combination of basic items may be styled various ways from placing the napkin to the left side of the plate with the place card set in the center of the dinner plate or placing just the fork over the napkin to the left & the knife & spoon to the right. Use a combination that pleases you.
