Set the Table with B+G: Easter Edition

Like many of our holiday traditions, Easter at our house is about gathering family and friends to connect over a joyous meal and spend time in good company. Now having grown children off in different stages in their lives, our Easter table decor looks more refined with a sophisticated “empty nester” aesthetic. Lone gone are the days of Easter baskets and jelly beans. I opt for simple elegance with fresh florals that enhance the visual and aromatic ambiance of our brunch setting. I love to set out a fresh salad, a beautiful assortment of fruits, followed by a light lunch. Our coffee bar is set up to serve mimosas, mocktails and of course espresso, which we take outside on the balcony overlooking Biscayne Bay.

Easter is a time for renewal for many and Spring’s vibes bring a refreshed feeling into many homes.

Set the table with me and see how we celebrate.

Design Elements

Florals:

The moment my team walked into the apartment they were wrapped in the calming scent of lavender. Not only do I love lavender for its relaxing and healing elements but it also reminds me of lavender fields in France in the Spring time. The soft color and non perfect nature of the arrangement played into the Massimo Listri photograph in the dining room. I also created a smaller setting within a round vase. A trio of elements always balances the layout. The florals we source locally in Miami.

Dining Table

We rarely place a table cloth on this beautiful B&B Italia dinning table, instead I will either leave it bare to showcase the rich black color or place a runner down the center, even elegant placemats.

Candles

These stone candles look and feel as if they were just pulled from a stream. We picked these up during our travels, but you can find similar styles to complete the organic feel of this setting.

Tableware & Stemware

In keeping with the minimal feel of the table setting I went with simple white plates and silverware  from Crate & Barrel with napkins from Threadcount. The stemware are classic cabernet sauvignon wine glasses from Riedel.
