Easter is right around the corner and we can’t wait. From memories of getting dressed up for church as a kid and setting the table for the family to come over, Easter is a big occasion. Growing up in the Lowcountry, I loved Easter and still do. I have so many memories of attending my family churches and seeing family from both near and far all dressed up. Check out some of my favorite tips for hosting a Gullah Easter Dinner below!
How to Host a Gullah Easter Dinner
Can’t go wrong with a beautiful indigo tablecloth. I love pairing various textiles and fabrics for a layered Easter look but indigo is always the centerpiece.
I can’t get enough of using church fans for decor. There is something so nostalgic about them and keeping them in my dining room always makes me smile.
A bouquet of palmetto roses is the perfect way to honor the heritage and history of Sweetgrass for a Gullah easter dinner.
Sugarcane was and is still grown in the Lowcountry and is a tradition passed down in the Gullah community. I was inspired to use the Sugarcane as a bouquet for my dessert table.
I grew up always admiring the china cabinets in my family members’ homes. I love seeing all the items they had collected from yard sales, antique shops, consignment stores, JCPenney, and Belk.
