The Springtime Table

Spring is just around the corner and Easter is one of my favorite holidays. There’s something exciting about sunnier days ahead and the prospect of a fresh start. I love gathering friends and family for an Easter brunch and setting the table, as you might have guessed, is one of my favorite parts. With something as simple as a set of gingham napkins, you can update your everyday dinnerware and give your table a sunny feel. Below, explore over 50 (I may have gone a bit overboard, I couldn’t resist!) pieces for the spring table.

Best of Etsy: Block Print Linens by Kaurture Inc

Lately, I’ve been all about block print. Until I can get to India to buy it up in bulk, I’ve been scouring Etsy for hand printed finds.

Personally, I’m stocking up on the napkins—great for gifting, affordable, and chic! Explore all of Kaurture’s block printed beauties here.

Below, are over 40 awesome napkins available now. They make for great gifts with such a personal touch. I hope you find a set you love! READ POST

Best of Etsy: Shibori Linens by Flora Poste Studio

This past fall, Simon and I began hosting lots of little dinner parties (many of the Danes and fellow expats in his office have become dear friends…) and the small soirées have quickly become my favorite thing. Fun conversation, flattering candlelight, flowing wine…what’s not to love? I still haven’t caught the cooking bug, but these lively gatherings do have me ridiculously excited about table settings. One of my new favorite sources is the Philadelphia-based shop, Flora Poste Studio. Artisan Kendra Lebo makes and sells the loveliest shibori and ombré dyed textiles. I’m coveting a set of the shibori dinner napkins in every hue. Explore all of Flora Poste Studio’s gorgeous collection here.
