With the first day of spring just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to make some plans for a little brunch! I’ll be pulling out these settings for Easter brunch in a couple of weeks.

For this setting, I wanted to keep things really light and bright.

Here are some of the ingredients that I used that you could pull together from the thrift shop, your cupboard, and your favourite florist.

  • Linen fabric for the tablecloth
  • Brass candle holders in a variety of shapes and heights
  • Cream coloured candle sticks
  • White dishes with delicate patterns
  • Gold flatware
  • Glassware and mugs

When I’m setting a table, I like to stick to a general mood and colour scheme. For a spring-y brunch like this, I thought it would be a good excuse to do lots of whites, pinks, and gold/brass. However, you could opt for a moodier setting like this one, and include some darker woods, heavier greens in place of the pink blooms, and some rich blues and greys.

For the flowers, I indulged all of my favourites. White anemones, pink ranunculus, and tulips for the win.

It’s always a special touch to deck out the place settings with something extra. Whether it’s an awesome place card at a big table, or a single flower tucked into the napkin, it spruces up the setting before the food arrives.

My favourite source for dishes is the thrift store. I can spend forever hunting for new additions to my shelves, and I love to bring the special pieces out for meals like this (or your average Sunday pancake session). If you haven’t done it before, stop by a local thrift shop or flea market and see what you find. Platters, cream + sugar dishes, and glassware are my favourite things to look for. I sourced a bunch of the dishes for the Sweet Happenings brunch that way.

I also recently picked up some gold flatware and it seems to make every meal more delicious.

There you go! I’d love to see any table settings that you come up with in the next little bit. Be sure to snap a pic and share it with me on Instagram (I’m @Kendra_Sally)!
