An Easy Easter Centerpiece

Lilac Le Creuset Stoneware PitcherI’ve always been a big fan of Easter—any holiday that involves dyeing eggs and eating chocolate bunnies is A-okay with me. Plus, Cadbury Eggs! And bunny cakes! But hey, I’m not totally food-fixated. I also love that Easter coincides with the start of spring, when gorgeous flowers start springing up. For me that’s extra exciting because it signals the end of SAD-inducing winter weather. Seriously, it makes me almost this dorkily, dancing down the street happy.

I’m headed to New Orleans this weekend, but if I was hosting the holiday brunch this year, I’d snag this stoneware pitcher and fill it with flowers for a simple centerpiece.

I like color on the table, so I’d skip the more traditional lilies and go with a mix of deep plum tulips and sunny yellow daffodils. The pitcher’s lilac hue, new to the U.S., is totally feeding my purple addiction (check out the also new—and gorgeous—eggplant-y Cassis shade, above, on the rectangular baker). And at $25, it’s not too spendy—especially for Le Creuset, a brand known for making classic, lasts-forever pieces.

How will you be decorating your table for Easter?

  1. Sunflowers!

  2. For this Easter I’m using little potted trees & hanging glitter eggs from the Dollar Tree, & hanging eggs with pictures of flowers , bunnies & chicks on them, & votive candles with flowers & butterflies on them from Michael’s Crafts. I’ll pick up some tulips, & maybe daffodils from Stop & Shop, & put them in a vase or pitcher & those will all be on my table.The other tree is for the Living room. I’m forcing some Hyacinths as well,for living room. I usually sew or craft a few cute things-bunnies,chicks & eggs & set them all around the house-with baskets, other small gatherings & wall hangings-& I have a few homemade wreaths. I usually hang 1 on my door, & 1 on my living room wall.
