Hey guys! It’s Jacqueline. Every spring around the Easter season, I dream of hosting a beautiful brunch (complete with florals and vintage dishes) for my family and friends. Sadly, this year I’m not the host, but that doesn’t mean I can’t dream of planning a beautiful tablscape. I’m finding so much inspiration in this tablescape styled by our friend Joanna! As always, Etsy is a great place to find one-of-a-kind tableware. I was surprised at how many gorgeous vintage dishes I was able to source. I might snag a few for upcoming occasions and events. Whether you’re hosting brunch with your besties, a bridal or baby shower, birthday parties, or even a spring soiree, you can never have enough unique tableware. Click through to see some of my favorites in this month’s Best of Etsy roundup!

In case you’re wondering…yes, there is a certain science to styling the perfect tabletop. For an Easter brunch, there would be a few items on my must-have list: vintage plates, pretty drink ware, flatware, linens and of course- gorgeous floral centerpieces. I also like the idea of personalizing seats with thoughtful hand-written name cards at each place setting. I’m also into the idea of an all blue table with mix and matched plates…such as numbers 1, 13, 25 and 27 from the roundup. You can look for a matching set of dishes for a more cohesive look, think numbers 10 and 12 (one of my personal favorites). Last but not least mix a variety of different shapes, sizes and patterns for a fun eclectic look – from this bunch I would pair numbers 6 and 15 and numbers 20 and 21.
I’m super curious to know who is hosting their own spring or Easter brunch this year and who has decided to leave it to someone else? I really enjoy entertaining and am bummed I won’t be styling a tabletop this year.
