Cocoa Couture Easter Tablescape

Cocoa Couture Easter Table Scape

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of entertaining a group of incredible women for a Progressive Brunch. A progressive meal or “Safari Supper” is made of successive courses prepared and eaten at the residence of different hostesses. This involves consumption of one course at each location. Each of us ladies prepared a part of traditional brunch and Ubered from each of our houses to the next, after each course, enjoying the company and styling of each person’s take on a brunch tablescape!

My house was the first stop and I hosted the Mimosa and fruit course! I wanted to share my tablescape with you because I have to show you how easy it is to design a party table without spending a ton of money on theme décor. Every element of the design are DIYs I’ve blogged about previously with a few drugstore Easter isle props thrown in!

Disco balls are ornaments seen before here. TIP: If you have any pastel ornaments or at least a bunch of smaller Christmas ornaments all the same color you can group them together around a floral centerpiece in a tray, or pick up a bag of plastic eggs for a few dollars.

DIY Silver and black box centerpiece here. TIP: This is literally just an empty box to give height to the center of the table. You can use any cardboard box you already have and spray paint or decorate it (glue on jewels, flowers, glitter, etc.) to match your color theme and you’ll instantly have a customized centerpiece!

 Chanel bunny DIY seen before here. TIP: The centerpiece doesn’t have to be the most expensive part of the table, it just has to tie everything in.

If you don’t have fabric napkins or a table cloth, consider borrowing some from a friend or family member. Fabric linens really elevate the whole look vs. using plastic or paper. If you’re considering purchasing a table cloth and napkins, opt for all-white or all-cream, since a neutral background color will work for almost any occasion. The ones I used were gifts from my Mum who passed them on to me when she realized she was no longer using them regularly and she knew I liked them.

One of the easiest ways to create a cohesive layout is by grouping similar items together, such as candles, of the same color. I grabbed a few black and pink candles from around my house and placed them on the table to continue the black and pink theme.

This is one of the oldest tricks in the book, but if you make your food / drink part of the theme, the necessary items on the table can instantly lend to the decor palette. For example, I made white chocolate fondue colored light pink with a few drops of red food coloring, blueberries and strawberries on skewers (for easy dipping!) and chose ginger ale, champagne and gin bottles with pink and black labels and packaging.

Lastly, I grabbed a few Easter Lindt chocolates that lend to the Easter aspect (mini carrots and bunnies are so cute, and can double as party favors!) as well as a bunch of pink roses and greenery, because nothing says, “Spring” like fresh flora!

The tiny ceramic bunnies I purchased several years ago while living in Germany at their version of the Dollar Store, but I’m sure they have similar ones in the States.
