Easter table for two with anemones and buttercups

«To get through the challenges life is throwing at us in this vulnerable period, I’m trying to stay creative. I am trying to look for the beauty around me in the hope it will balance the overwhelming wave of bad news we read every day.»

Well, a year later, we are sadly living in a very similar situation and those words of mine are still relevant. I’m tired to stay at home as, I think, many of you but I know that I’m doing the right thing and I am thankful my family and friends are safe and healthy.

While Easter won’t be the same also this year, I hope you’ll find ways to celebrate that will make you feel good.

Sunday Easter breakfast is traditionally the most important moment of this holiday in my family: we gather around the table, eating ‘ciambellone’ and chocolate surprise eggs. Even though it will be only me and my husband, we’ll keep up with the tradition and we’ll dress up the table and celebrate.

This year’s Easter table for two is simple yet happy. Anemones and buttercups replaced the classic decorative eggs and my first-ever naked cake will be a special treat for the day.

If you are familiar with my blog, you know that I’m a fan of the “less is more” approach. A simple table setting doesn’t ask for many elements but it certainly asks for the right textures and colors.

I went for a white marble sheet on which I laid textured stoneware that recalls the patterns the sand creates on the seashores. I then added monochrome cups with hand-painted rims and a speckled vase with a touch of gold to bring refinement to the overall table. And, of course, anemones and buttercups!

Something special in this Easter table is the matching between the anemones and the cornflowers I used to garnish the naked cake and to decorate the table. They are made for each other (and I just love coordinating the food decor with the table)!


Hope you like this decor! If you are going to recreate this table setting, share a photo on Instagram and tag me so I can see and share your beautiful pictures.


Wishing you all good health for this Easter!

      Grazie mamma! Ho scelto di tenerla molto semplice, è facilissima da ricreare, ma sempre curata. E speriamo di poter trascorrere la prossima Pasqua tutti insieme!
