I love spring, so of course I was excited when Snippet and Ink asked my team to collaborate with them on an Easter shoot! We wanted to come up with a concept that was elevated and chic, but still something readers could make for their own at-home Easter brunch.
It’s easy to get carried away with a spring tablescape—there are so many bright color and pattern options to consider. We wanted to come up with a fresh and different idea that drew upon springtime for inspiration. We decided that the egg should be the focus of the table, because it’s Easter, after all! To keep the egg as the focal point, we chose a neutral tablecloth and simple Pottery Barn plates that would compliment the egg, without making an overpowering statement.
I’m obsessed with the floral arrangement! Sometimes spring arrangements can look too staged and cliché—think the Easter lilies you bring to church. We wanted the arrangement to represent our vision, and Loop flowers incorporated these gorgeous spring blooms into an arrangement that was more natural and romantic. I love the winding vines and the asymmetrical shape. It gives it the impression you just plucked these beauties from the garden.
The best part about these eggs is that you can do them yourself!
Step 1: Boil your eggs, let them cool, and then dye eggs with coloring. We played around with food coloring, blueberries, and store bought egg kits. We liked the Paas blue color the best!
Step 2: Use a paint marker to write your guests’ name on each egg.
Step 3: To complete the look, you can buy pre-made nests from the flower mart or craft store. We pulled the pre-made nests apart a bit and added greenery to make it look all the more soft and natural.
Step 4: For the table, we recommend using a charger and a coordinating dinner plate, and setting the nest in the center. This gives your place setting a multilayered look.
We hope you have as much fun as we had putting this together. Enjoy!
