Easter Inspiration: Keeping Your Table Centerpiece Simple

Theodore Leaf, our friend, lifestyle enthusiast, and small-business owner, shares his gorgeous Easter centerpiece, and a few tips on how to build a cohesive "tablescape." Prepare to be inspired!


This year I wanted to create a beautiful, sophisticated table for my annual Easter brunch. My inspiration started when I spotted these gorgeous Florentine egg-shaped plates from Williams-Sonoma, I loved the marble pattern and color palette.


While recently traveling in Italy, I stumbled upon this beautiful store Il Papiro that makes authentic Florentine marbleized paper. The synergy was too much to pass up, I knew I had to find something for my Easter table at this store. Luckily they make everything from notebooks to napkin rings, so I snapped up the latter for the table. The owner was very sweet -- he even gave us a quick tutorial on how they make these beautiful papers. The process looked simple enough, and I can't wait to try it myself.


For the centerpiece, I found these unique ceramic Guinea hens in the window of this charming shop called Maison 140, located near my apartment in New York City. When placing them on the table, I wanted it to look natural so I added some fake moss from a craft store to soften the look.


It's always best to give your guests something sweet, so I added these incredible chocolate eggs from Chocolat Moderne to the mossy centerpiece. They look so real, I will have to make sure to tell my guests they are actually chocolate!

I plan to serve simple individual quiches and a fresh green salad. To drink I'll be serving my version of mimosas -- or as my friends call it: "mimosa, hold the orange juice!"

What are you planning to do for your Easter table this year?
