Welcome to our Easter table!
For some reason, the Easter holiday always sneaks up on me. Thanksgiving, Christmas - we have major build up for those guys. But all of a sudden, spring has sprung, and Easter is here. For that reason, I like to create really simple but festive tables for the spring holiday set up. I actually had all of the items for this table - I just rummaged around all of my "hiding spots"....don't tell my husband how many hiding spots I actually have :)
This year we incorporated:
The DIY project for this year are these glitter filled easter eggs!
DIY Glitter Filled Easter Eggs
Glitter - (we used Martha Stewart Glitter Pack)
Clear Easter eggs from Michaels ($.99 each!)
1.) Take off top of clear egg and fill up with glitter.
I filled each egg about 1/4 of the way full.
2.) Pop top back on egg.
3.) Using a glue ballpoint pen, write down names
for place cards on a thin strip of white paper.
4.) Sprinkle glitter over glue.
5.) Brush off glitter (funnel back into tube to re-use).
6.) Roll both ends of paper for a fancier look.
Each place setting has a slightly different look...
Kara: old wine corks add a festive feel
Kate: dried lavender from the garden
Kacey: small white stones and mini purple carnations
Sorella: A beautiful pink flower
You could also scoop up a whole bunch of these eggs, fill them with coordinating glitter and hang them together all at random lengths with flowers behind it as a spring wreath. Or even hang them at various heights from your chandelier over your Easter table. A kind of grown-up mobile!
We actually re-used the gorgeous flower arrangement from our Baby Shower last weekend! Our dear friend Alyson created the most stunning floral arrangements - and Kacey and I got to take a few home with us. This was perfect for the table.
Aren't they beautiful? She is so talented! And these flowers are still fresh almost a week later. More pictures to come from the Baby Shower, I promise. We have a whole post dedicated to it. Our friends and family did such an amazing job on the event...can't wait to share!
Happy Easter everyone - don't forget to light some candles and use whatcha got! Get creative, but keep it simple...works every time!
Kara, Kate, and Kacey
