Easter is such a wonderful time of year and one that brings family together around a shared table. Tabletops are some of our favorite vignettes at Bering’s and we are continuously inspired by customer feedback as well as wedding registry mixing and matching of various patterns. Changing seasons and holidays make decorating our gift shop tabletops so much fun, and add to everyone getting into the spirit of whatever the holiday or season might be at the time. The best part is that we all have a table of our own to decorate and infuse our personal touch with place settings, serving pieces, crystal, décor and more, enhancing treasured time with friends and family.
When we initially began discussing working with Lauren for a special Easter tabletop blog post, we quickly realized just how terrific a fit it was for so many reasons – chief among them being that she was a Bering’s Bride! Not to mention, Lauren has beautiful taste and specifically requested the pattern featured in these images, Herend’s Queen Victoria pattern, mixed with Herend’s Princess Victoria pattern. It is also fun to note that the Baccarat butterflies were Lauren’s idea and are a symbol of resurrection. The Baccarat butterflies are even more beautiful knowing about the symbolism, as we countdown to Easter!
Lauren has classic taste in fine china; Herend’s Queen Victoria pattern was introduced in 1851 at the First World Exhibition in London. The name came about upon Queen Victoria purchasing the pattern for herself! And for the artists and art lovers reading this post, did you know that each of these dinner plates takes an average of 12 hours to hand draw and paint?! The pieces are very special and oh-so lovely. We hope you enjoy Lauren’s Easter tabletop and be sure to enter to win a Baccarat butterfly!
