Easter Entertaining & Holiday Memories
I am a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to Easter. Growing up in Dallas my precious Grandma would take me shopping every year and buy me a new Easter dress, hat, and white patent leather shoes. Oh how we couldn't wait to wear white in the South at Easter. I do believe its those traditions that have shaped the way I love to create special memories around holidays for my family.
My Easter table always consists of the same elements with maybe a new recipe or two thrown in. I love to pull out my Easter bin full of vintage rabbits and lambs I have collected through the years. The table is set with vintage linens, tulips or daffodils, and my favorite china & silver. Holidays are special and I don't mind the extra work involved. Its a perfect time to use and display your special pieces. The menu always has an Easter ham, fresh spring asparagus, and deviled eggs.
Here are some of my favorite Pinterest inspired table settings. Are you on Pinterest? Follow us at Erin Lane Estate.
I love how The Enchanted Home puts necklaces on her vintage bunnies and uses a textured vintage linen table cloth. It makes it less stuffy than a traditional white tablecloth.

I make this gruyere asparagus tart every year on Easter. This dish does not travel well, eat directly from the oven. Via: Hippie Food Mom
Who doesn't love GINGHAM? All the pops of yellow are so perfect for an Easter brunch. Via: Aiken House & Garden
Easter would not be complete without something sweet and it must have malted chocolate eggs on top. Via: Blahnik Baker
Southern Living always does it just right. Chinoiserie & Easter ham 2 of my favorites. Do you see how they have different containers at varying heights? It adds so much interest to your table.
Emily Henderson is truly a design whisperer. The marble table, the gold flatware, and the gilt eggs are nothing short of perfection.
How fun would it be to give these baskets to the hostess? Via: The French Tangerine
