Whimsical Easter Tablescape

Happy Friday, Everyone!  I have to say I really received some nice responses from last week's post with my Whimsical Fabric Flower Wreath.  That wreath has actually inspired my whole Easter tablescape this year. I am letting the colors of the wreath be my guide for color when it comes to my Easter dining table. It has been fun mixing so many normally taboo colors together.  Easter and Spring allow for whimsy I think,... or at least I hope so!




I had fun bringing together Easter/Spring items and colors for this tablescape.  Such a great time really getting into Spring after the horrible March we have just had here in Massachusetts!

Anyway, I thought I could share with you some of the elements of my design...

I think it was my mom who gave me this round picket fence plant holder.  I guess that is what you would call it.  I stuffed some Easter basket grass into it and added a "bunch" of  decoration carrots along with a little stuffed bunny I found in some of my children's old treasures.  I knew I had saved that picket fence thing all these years for something.  The bunny looked really cute in it!

Even though the bunch of carrots is a strong orange and so are some of the daisy flowers I used, most of the tablescape is in pastel colors.  What would Easter or Spring be without pastels? 

I also purchased some pastel fabric from Jo Ann fabrics.  The sales clerk at Jo Ann's loved the rose print.  Her approval made me feel even more certain of my purchase :).

I had to do an errand near a favorite farm stand of mine earlier this week.  I could not resist this milk glass mint-colored mason jar.  Turns out, it worked perfectly in my tablescape. 

I also found these bunny clips at Jo Ann Fabrics.  That's one of my fabric flower napkin rings in the egg holder that I mentioned in last week's post, as well

The fresh flowers came from the grocery store.  It was pouring yesterday when I purchased them and I didn't feel like battling the rain so, I made it work with local flowers.  Sometimes that's what you have to do :).  Don't you love the polka-dot basket?

The bundle of green in the middle of this picture was something I found at my local Ace Hardware, of all places.  I ended up buying three of them just because I thought they were cute.  I figure you should always buy things in odd numbers, right?  One was not enough and five was too many.  Three was just right ;).  I ended up using them in the tablescape, as well.

There's another one of my napkin rings doing just what it is supposed to do.  Imagine that!

I decided to use my cupcake holder again.  I really love that thing!  I put some colored Easter eggs on it but, don't look too close.  They are the cheap plastic kind but they did the trick for the photo.

These eggs are the wooden variety so they were allowed their "close-up"!

I hope you have fun setting up your Easter tablescape.  I certainly did.  It really can be fun playing around with color and items from your house. You can always supplement your supplies with new buys from Jo Ann Fabrics, Michael's, Homegoods or one of your favorite stores. If you are really lucky, you might find a local farmstand that has a few Easter treasures of their own!!

Happy Decorating!!!
