Seder 2016 Springtime Tablescape
I am back with another fun and bright tablescape for you all today! Passover is 8 days but you are supposed to do a Seder the first two nights and the last night. Now, I will be honest that rarely am I actually able to get myself together and do two but this year it happened and it was awesome! You saw the first tablescape that I did for the one that I co-hosted with my friend yesterday (check out the blue and white tablescape) and this is the one that I hosted for our family and some friends at our house! I went with one of my favorite styles of a little rustic and a little girly because I just like it and it always turns out great!
Again, for the tablecloth I went with one of my favorite affordable ideas, wrapping paper. You can find it in a million patterns and usually can do around two tables at least with one roll so it is a great deal. In this case I found some fun packing paper that had polka dots on it, love! it went great with the pink and purple mini carnations I picked up and put in mason jars with lemons. So simple but added a bright touch on the table. I also like to use elements of the Seder as additional centerpieces by just placing romaine, parsley and green onions in mason jars down the table. Useful and beautiful!
I also added doilies to this tablescapes as I did in the one linked above but it is just such an easy touch and I have thousands whereas I don’t have that many chargers on hand. I used my trusty stemless wine glasses from the Dollar Tree and disposable utensils. I had the silver kind on their way but they literally arrived on my doorstep during dinner.
I feel like I have things down to a formula when it comes to setting tables because it is getting easier and easier and there is virtually no stress at this point and many times I just start incorporating things that we have on hand. Tablecloths (or table papers as it would be in this case), chargers and centerpieces can really go a long way to upgrade a table!
