With its cheery pink rim edged in gold, this Indienne Dinner Plate in Rose serves as a lovely foundation piece for the season’s settings. It conjures up spring’s reawakened gardens when paired with the corresponding salad plate in Anis Green and the vibrant Burst Camelia Plate by Royal Limoges. The table runner, with its decorative display, keeps the floral theme literally and figuratively at the center of the table. Standing in for a more elaborate centerpiece, it also leaves plenty of room for passing plates heaped with Easter delights. For a blooming finishing touch, simply wind a tulip stem around the napkin, and secure with floral tape.

It’s hard to resist the charm of the bunny on this black-and-white Yorkshire Hedgerow bread and butter plate. While the monochromatic scale of the accent dishes maintains a more serious air, the pink dinner plate accentuates the playfulness of the design. No need for many embellishments with this setting. The twists and turns of the detailed china pattern add plenty of interest. Simple linens and a bouquet of fresh spring flowers complete a graceful and elegant table.
