We are finally starting to see some signs of spring, milder temps, a few rain showers here and there, birds chirping in the morning; and with Easter fast approaching this weekend, I wanted to share something festive but with a whole lot of pretty. I am sharing with you the table scape I shot for "The Quirk Kitchen" for a Spring Soiree. To be honest, I would do this settling for a tea party, Mother's Day brunch, even bridal shower. It is so elegant and timeless, it would work for any occasion.I share with you a few tips for a pretty table scape for any occasion.1. Flowers: A lot of them! Here's a little secret, I used Faux flowers! Living in Canada, I am always looking for realistic looking faux flowers, because we don't have much variety (other than roses) through out the winter months. Plus Faux flowers are just more economical!2. Mix and Match: I used everything I already had in my kitchen for this setting. I used simple white dishes, and added doilies in gold and pink as decor, and "doily" shaped trays from Ikea which come in lovely pastels.3. Use dishes as decor: I used my fave tea cups as decor. I filled them up with sugar roses which come in every colour, and chose the ones to fit the theme, and voila a cheap decor idea!4. Pretty glassware: I have a thing for pretty glassware. I love gold accents on champagne glasses and flutes. Holiday season is the best time to collect champagne glasses as they come in so many designs and shapes. Plus pink and gold make an elegant combination.5. Gold accents: Even the simplest settings become glamorous with a touch of fold. So dig out anything and everything gold from your kitchen; add gold paper doilies, gold cheese knives, gold rimmed tea cups, all long as you have repetition, everything works!6. Bubbly: No brunch is complete without some Sparkling Rose, so pop your fave bottle open and don't forget to have some fun!
7. When in doubt add colorful Macarons
