This idea comes from our contributor David Stark.

"At David Stark Design and Production, we love to play with the unexpected, bringing spirited whimsy to our work," he says. "This year, as we thought about Easter, a holiday synonymous with pastel, we thought it would be beautiful (while no less celebratory) to build a tablescape around a cooler color palette — literally. We found ourselves utterly charmed by this sweet blue and green watercolor dot print by Designer's Guild, which inspired our out-of-the-box Easter egg centerpieces."
