Welcome Spring!

 Warrenton designer Amy Boyle shares her Easter tablescapes that brighten the house after a long winter 

Aside from the religious significance, my favorite part about Easter is that it heralds the coming of Spring. At this time of year, turning to lighter and brighter home decor with the use of pastels, fresh flowers, and the requisite dyed eggs are the basic elements for creating an Easter table. From traditional to fun, Easter colors and themes can vary according to the imagination. In our home I like to blend formal with fun, using dishes and decor to keep our Easter table feeling fresh and new. I add in spring flowers, bunnies and other seasonal touches for a table that can work for both formal and less formal celebrations. Here is a look back at some of the color combinations and styles I have created for Easter over the years.

Small plates nestled in a holder can be decorative as well as functional. This pink one was part of a set, I display them all throughout my house and on the table during Easter.
