This year, Easter celebrations will look different for most of us. A time normally spent celebrating Jesus’ Resurrection with family and friends is likely being spent alone (or with those in your home). A time that normally lets us focus on faith has tested our faith. Going through the coronavirus pandemic has been a trying time, but one thing it has allowed us to do is spend a lot of time with our thoughts. Hopefully it’s given time to plot actions and make improvements on ourselves, our homes, our health and more. And truly, that is what Easter is all about. Possibly it’s a blessing in disguise. And when the day comes when we can celebrate with our family and friends again, it will be all the more sweet – like the largest chocolate Easter bunny you could possibly find! While a lot remains uncertain for the near future, one thing we can count on for sure is that another symbol of Easter, springtime, is definitely coming and we can still set a beautiful table (even if it’s only for one) and rejoice in that.
A memory of Easters’ past that always stands out to me is getting dressed up – in lovely dresses with Easter bonnets, and later big bows. It was always fun to have a new Easter outfit for church and celebrate with a delicious brunch afterwards. This year, since I’m a tad old to wear big bows in my hair, and there won’t be a big brunch, I decided to dress up my table instead! Of course, I still used the most precious bows to accessorize my table (in the form of napkin rings). I mixed classic Easter/spring colors of creams, pinks and pastels, which are light and airy. To add polish, I included vintage drink ware and hints of gold. It’s a happy-go-lucky table, perfect to celebrate Easter, to welcome in spring, and to bring peace and hope in this time of need.
Use today to get crafty and creative (since shopping isn’t really an option) and prepare your perfectly dressed up Easter table. No matter where you are or who you are with, it will bring some cheer to your weekend. Happy Easter!
