I’m excited to share this tablescape incorporating Hadley Pottery. These patterns are collectibles for many families so we’re putting them into an Easter brunch setting.

The tradition is to mix and match patterns in their classic blue & creamy white dishes, so that’s what we did. Using some of the most classic patterns like the house, and blooms, we incorporated some Easter/Spring patterns like the bunny, sheep, and duck to set the table. Everything is set up for Easter Brunch with some tried and true recipes as well.

Setting the table for Easter Entertaining with Hadley Pottery

  • I wanted to stay true to the traditional style of the dishes so I set a runner of burlap, flowers, and classic Easter decor, down the center of the table.
  • Neutral toned speckled eggs from the craft store are displayed under a glass cloche, and tiny ceramic bunnies are scattered about the table.
  • I wanted to bring in another color to add dimension to the overall design.  Green was a good choice since it represents Spring so well.
  • A bundle of flowers from the grocery store fills small vases and adds life to the table.
  • Since the patterns are so distinct I didn’t want to hide them under a lavish place setting. I simply layered each plate on a woven charger, with it’s coordinating coffee cup & saucer. I love the inside bottom of the cups that say “The End”.
  • Coordinating pieces like salt & pepper shakers, and a butter dish adds more interest to the table. They also become a decorative aspect of the centerpiece.
  • Set up a side table to hold things like coffee, fruit, and the cake. This makes it easy for guests to grab seconds.

Easter entertaining menu and recipes

  • The main dish for this Easter brunch is my hashbrown & ham brunch casserole. Prep it ahead and bake in the morning before guests arrive.
  • A fruit salad and sparkling fruit punch round out the main meal. The punch can be made as a mocktail or a cocktail to suit your needs.
  • Doughnut holes are placed in an egg holder at one end of the table. This makes it easy to grab while your sitting down to brunch.
  • To end on a sweet note this fluffy white layer cake is served for dessert. It has some fruit infusions that make it light and delicious for Easter entertaining.
  • Each guest can take home a favor box filled with candy coated eggs. I simply wrapped the outside of the box with scrapbook paper to match our colors.

        I live more than 2 hours from a JoAnn’s (or any craft store for that matter) and I just so happen to have to go to the “big” city for a funeral. I remembered what you said and stopped at JoAnn’s. They had two of the 9-spot ceramic egg cartons and for half off! Nabbed them both.
