fresh entertaining ideas for spring

Welcome to our “Spring Brunch and Entertaining Blog Hop”! Today I’m joined by 4 super talented bloggers, and we’re showcasing our favorite ways to prepare and host a Spring Brunch.


First, I’ll be showing you all the details of my tablescape and family room mantel, and then I’ll turn it over to Mary Ann, Cindy, Annie and Michele.


I recently had the opportunity to style the new line of table linens from Pacific & Rose, so I was really inspired to use this Lilibet tablecloth in the Cornflower color as the base of my design.

Each place setting is layered with some of my favorite table wares, including the Serena & Lily Raffia place mats and simple white farmhouse style plates from Home Goods that I use ALL the time. 

They really set off the pretty pattern in the tablecloth.


The breakfast room is bright and sunny, and I love sharing my different table settings in here.


My love for blue and white is evident with the display of vintage transferware plates up above the windows, so I love incorporating that look onto my tables.


Since this is a brunch table for the family, I kept the middle of the table fairly simple. 

Just a big bouquet of stock in the middle with a smaller little crock of white cottage roses to add a touch of the garden is all that’s needed.


This is one of my favorite little bunnies, and here he (or she) is keeping a watchful eye over the breakfast eggs.


Two more larger bunnies on the sideboard are flanking the "extras" that may be needed during brunch. 

All three of these rabbits are lightweight faux cement, so they’re easy to move around if needed.


Over on the mantel, I’ve collected a few of my favorite pitchers, vases and crocks to display more spring flowers. 

The lilacs, stock and pink roses are from Trader Joes, and the white cottage roses and early hydrangeas are from my garden.


These funny little moss bunnies are also from Home Goods from a few years back. I love how they stand out against all the blue and white.

I really love how the Cornflower blue of this Lilibet tablecloth sets off the rest of the table with all of its spring elements. Imagine if this tablecloth were white.


The whole look would be sooooo different. The hand-blocked, unique print of this cloth really makes a world of difference!


Now on to sharing more

Oh, Fabiana! The color story and the timeless mood are calling my name! And the small crock with roses - it's everything. Your mantelscape stopped me in my tracks on IG the other day, and your beautiful mix of vintage and new is inspiring. Thank you for bringing such beauty into our worlds so we may taste a little of heaven in this realm. I'm going back to your post now to learn more about the resources (and that pendant!). :)

I have said it before...you are the MASTER at tablescapes. And I am excited to know more about Pacific & Rose. Thanks for doing this with us.

Your tablescapes are always so gorgeous! Those linens are just beautiful. I have got to check them out. I had planned a little soiree with Summer but it was not meant to be. Thanks for joining us. You never disappoint!

I adore your tablecloths from Pacific & Rose and then how you use them! It's so beautiful and perfect for spring/easter! The flowers, the bunnies, your mantel...perfection! Your family must feel very special!

Love your spring ideas with all the flowers & bunnies. You have probably mentioned your wicker light fixture & I don’t really. I would love to know the source.

Hi Shera. The light fixture is from Serena & Lily.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.
