As Patricia Altschul proves time and time again, every gathering at her house is a lavish affair. Of course, Easter this year was no exception. 

How to Watch

Watch Southern Charm on Peacock and the Bravo App.

In an April 17 Instagram video, the Southern Charm matriarch shares all the details of her bright holiday tablescape, which featured several bunnies and decorative eggs. "I've gotten the linens out that my mother and I bought in Madeira. They're very pretty," she says. "My china has the hand-painted orchids. Many of the bunnies are antique, papier-mâché, Victorian. But it's certainly high kitsch."

"It's not unrestrained," she adds, "but it's fun."

In true Patricia fashion, there was also an incredible food spread. While sharing a look at the various dishes for the day in a separate Instagram post, Patricia focuses on the ham, braised ribs, vegetable side dishes, cupcakes, and Peeps. There was also a "puppy dog cake" because, as she quipped in a comment on the post, "Nothing says Easter like a doggie cake!"

While the meal looked amazing, the food table's festive centerpiece was especially eye-catching. As Patricia shows a colorful bunny spinning in place, she explains with a laugh, "We have a revolving rabbit."

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Sutton Stracke, who is also known to host fabulous events, praised Patricia in a comment, writing, "I really need to up my game."
