an elegant Easter table in pink

Mixing dish patterns is a great way to set a unique and fun table.  This table in Southern Living magazine uses light pink chargers and delicate, gold-edged bone china in two patterns. Then they chose a graphic napkin and tied on a tulip with ribbon for each setting.  Teacups are a fun way to anchor the place setting and hold a personalized golden egg for each guest.  A bit of moss or Easter grass is nestled under the egg.
Beautiful ribbons are simply woven to add the perfect amount of color.  Start with a crisp white table cloth.  Use the length and width measurements of your table cloth and cut about five strips of ribbon for the length of the table and about sixteen, in groups of four, for the width (add a few inches to each piece of ribbon you cut to trim later).  Weave them, lattice piecrust style, over your tablecloth.  Trim the ribbon even with the hem of the tablecloth.  Make sure the ribbon is pulled taut.   
gorgeous!
Visit golden egg  for instructions on how to make these.
Single flower groupings pack more of a punch.  Hot pink striped tulips are the perfect choice for this table!
Ornamental kale in terracotta pots balance the ends of the table.
A separate bar area is always a good idea.  Here beverages are color coordinated.  Guests are offered rosé, pink champagne and pink lemonade.  Drink tags are made with more pretty ribbon.  Mint garnishes remind us of Spring and delight our senses.  
For the finale, don't forget to impress guests with dessert.
A store bought coconut  cake was dressed up with tulips and a trio of Easter eggs .  
More ribbon laid as a runner on the buffet completes the look. 
I think I might have to  incorporate this ribbon look at my Easter Table!
