Easter Tabletop Inspiration—3 ways

1. Neon Vibes | 2. Neutral Vibes | 3. Playful Vibes

Will you be hosting an Easter gathering this year? We’ll be hosting Easter dinner with Dylan’s family. I’m still finalizing the menu and my ideas for the centerpiece. To get into the spirit, I’ve been looking at some inspiration, and I came across these 3 tabletops. The neon tabletop has some punchy color, which is a nice contrast to the typical pastel Easter table. The neutral tabletop is very refined and would be perfect for a brunch. The playful tabletop is my favorite, though, because of the muted color scheme. It has a lot of personality and yet isn’t over the top.

Which one is your favorite?

Blueberry Muffins with a Cinnamon Sugar Crumb Topping

Blueberry Muffins with Crumb Topping | Kitchen Pots & Tabletops

A few Sundays ago, I woke up craving blueberry muffins. There is something about the warm, crumbly muffins with the pop of blueberries sprinkled throughout that is just a delectable breakfast treat. They go perfectly with a steaming cup of coffee. This particular recipe is a nice variation. The crumb topping is sweet, but I don’t think that it is overly so.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1.5 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
  2. Combine 1.5 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl.
  3. Place oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup. Mix this with the flour mixture. Fold in the blueberries.
  4. Fill the muffin cups to the top.
  5. To make the crumb topping, mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1.5 teaspoons cinnamon. Sprinkle over the muffins.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean.
