Spring has sprung and that means Easter is on its way. With the craziness of the just past holiday season and Valentine’s Day, it can be hard to wrap our minds around yet another occasion in which we prepare meals, buy gifts, and try to create memories for our families. Daily Mom is here to help you get what you need to make this Easter one of the best, with some of the most essential items. From planners to get yourself organized to the perfect dishes to help create tasty meals, Daily Mom has you covered.
Dinnerware by Fiesta
How will you set your Easter table? A good place setting doesn’t have to be complicated to make a huge impact. Dinnerware by Fiesta is the best way to create a beautiful table without a lot of fuss.
Fiesta is loved for its flexibility. The ability to mix and match colors is what has made these place settings so popular. There are endless color combinations that would brighten up any Easter tablescape, but we chose turquoise, white, and a new color coming in June 2017: Daffodil. All of the colors offered by Fiesta are vibrant and festive!
Various sets are available, each offering a number of different pieces, but the 3-piece bistro set is very affordable and offers a modern twist on formal dinnerware. We love that this dinnerware can be dressed up for special occasions, but is still completely appropriate for everyday use. All of Fiesta’s dinnerware can go from freezer to oven, fridge to microwave, and directly into the dishwasher when it’s time for cleanup!
When you have the right set of dinnerware, creating a beautiful Easter tablescape is a cinch. Dinnerware by Fiesta is a simple way to make a beautiful statement.
Fiesta launched in 1936 by Frederick Rhead and the Homer Laughlin China Company and is made in the USA. New colors are introduced each year, and Fiesta has become a leading dinnerware brand. Fiesta is a tradition, but has also become a trendsetter of color for the housewares industry.
Easter brunch is not complete without a beautifully set table. The linens in particular can turn any normal table into a spring-inspired feast. This year, we are loving the boho-chic block printed textiles of Pacific & Rose! Combining the bright colors of sunny California and intricate designs reminiscent of India, Pacific & Rose provides everything from tablecloths to kitchen towels, napkins, and much more to decorate your home and kitchen.
Embrace cooking this holiday with a kitchen towel that not only does its job, but also wows you and your guests. The Jack Kitchen Towel, featured in various tones of blue, is 100% cotton and block printed in India for a unique, custom design. Mix and match it with another of Pacific & Rose’s kitchen towels, such as the James Kitchen Towel, featured here in a beautiful orange and blue block print. Don’t be too afraid of their beauty – they work and wear just as well. The kitchen towels are machine washable and even come with a convenient twill hook for hanging and easy access.
Once you’re done in the kitchen, don’t forget to set the table with the perfect flowery spring blue tablecloth! The English Teal Tablecloth features an Indian inspired floral design in bright blue and white and an intricately detailed border wrapping around the entire tablecloth. Also hand block printed in Jaipur, India, the tablecloth is 100% organic cotton and machine washable – perfect for a brunch that’s bound to be a little messy. If coordinating prints is your thing, matching table runners, napkins, and placemats are available.
A beautiful table setting is the perfect foundation for an Easter brunch with family and friends. Welcome spring into your home with bright colors and beautiful design.
About Pacific & Rose
Pacific & Rose was founded by Elizabeth James after an inspirational and life changing trip to India in 2001. After witnessing the ancient art of hand-block printing, James brought back the idea to her California home, infusing both the California lifestyle with the intricate and beautiful designs of India into a textile company. James creates the Indian inspired designs and sends them to her workshop in Jaipur, India where the designs are hand carved into printing blocks. Each piece is handmade with the utmost quality and care, often taking weeks to complete. James ensures that the entire process from start to finish is complete magic, sure to add a little something special to your home.
