An Easter Table
April 6, 2012
Happy Easter weekend everyone! We’ve got family coming to town so I took the opportunity to set a festive table for the occasion. I haven’t set an Easter table since this blues and branches tablescape from two years ago, so it felt like time to do another! Here are few scenes from my new blue green Easter table with sources too.
What is Easter without a bunny right? Kids might consider this torture – a peekaboo chocolate rabbit nestled in edible grass in a milk glass compote. My children are begging to chomp on his ears.
A blue ceramic fruit basket from Anthropologie holds pastel speckled eggs.
Place settings include bamboo mats found in the dollar bin at Michaels, salad plates from Marshalls, and blue rimmed glassware from Pier One.
I made these egg place card holders with floral wire (22 gauge). To make them, wrap the wire around an egg to form the shape, remove the egg then dust the wire with spray paint. Once dry, attach painted chipboard butterflies (or any other place card) to the top between the wire. Not that it matters where one sits in our house but it’s a fun touch :)
A glass molcajete is reinvented as a base for a nest of robin’s egg candy. Just beyond a stacked apothecary jar holds jelly beans, Jordan almonds and more robin’s egg treats.
A butterfly on a twig is on display under glass – that used to be a nonworking faux brass clock that I found at a thrift store but I dismantled it and painted the base white, now it’s a unique bell jar.
We’re serving glazed ham, scalloped potatoes, a big salad and sourdough, followed up by my sister’s creme brûlée. Can’t wait!
Wishing you all a very happy Easter weekend.
See y’all on Monday, enjoy!
