Yesterday I was enjoying a bit of energy and decided to set up our Easter table. Even though it was a very rainy and dreary day I was able to obtain some good photos. The sun is shinning bright this morning and need to pick up some groceries for our Easter dinner.
The table we’re using for Easter is an outdoor set Mr. C just spray painted white. Its smaller and works in the living area since the Charmer’s kitchen nook in in a major transformation. You might know by now that furniture doesn’t sit very long in any space.
With the table being on the smaller side my centerpiece needed to be small too.
The centerpiece started with a floral candlestick and I wrapped the pink napkin in an “nest” shape to place at the bottom of the candlestick. A few dots of hot glue was placed on top so I could sit a small plate on top covered with a doily.
I wanted a birds nest centerpiece and added some dried element which were tucked into the napkin.
On top is a birds nest using more dried elements, dried hydrangea blooms are great to work with and look so pretty with just a few of the hydrangea blooms hanging on. Twigs from the yard help to add to the natural look.
The tablescape started by double layering with two of my vintage linens and the blue one was recently found thrifting. You can see I haven’t change out our winter area rugs yet and won’t be anytime soon!
Each place setting starting by using two of my vintage tea towels for placemats. As yes stains don’t bother me at all!
The place settings started with a white charger and Johnson Brothers Rose Chintz Plate. I can’t tell you how ecstatic I was when I spotted a full 6 piece place setting at GW for less than $30 bucks, SCORE!
To those of you who might be a new visitor everything used on the tablescape are thrift store treasures! The outdoor set was a garage sale find.
Next a blue plate with a lace tablecloths was added on top. I don’t know why I added the vintage handkerchief except I just felt like it?
Next I layered a light blue glass plate and set a vintage planter with a chenille egg that I made inside.
An Easter vintage postcard was placed as a foundation for the utensils and to remind us what Easter is all about.
A vintage handkerchief provides color and and functionality being a napkin too. As with all my decorating I love to use color and my Easter table was no exception
Another vintage planter was used at Mr. C’s place setting too.
Each place setting also has a rose chintz teacup filled with a vintage egg holder and my one of my favorite old fashioned annual flower…stocks.
The vintage Avon Duck/egg salt and pepper along with the blue egg holder tucked inside the rose chintz creamer were found last year.
Each chair was covered with a thrift store pillow sham and one chair’s pillow is a Hydrangea pillow I made many a year ago.
This pretty pillow cover was found several years ago thrifting and one of my favorite spring/summer pillow.
Hope you didn’t feel photo overload…but being so happy how our Easter table turned out I just wanted to share…
Wishing you all a great weekend and Happy Easter!
