Easter Table - 20168:17 AM
Today I'm going to share a quick post of our Easter Table. Nothing fancy - just using things I have on hand. The only new things are the eggs inside the large glass vase. I picked those up at Target this year - I will list sources for everything at the end of this post. I used 1 box in this vase. The eggs were my table color inspiration.
I usually like to run a wrapping paper runner down the middle of the table. I intended to do that again, but as I was putting Easter baskets together a piece of the cellophane was laying on top of the tablecloth. It looked so pretty - and the weave of the fabric mixed with the cellophane was so interesting that I decided to use my extra roll right down the center of the table. Usually I need 2 rolls - one for each basket - but the rolls from Target were very generous this time so i had an extra roll on hand.
Oh, I also purchased the short gold taper holders from Target. They were on sale for $2.99 each so why not. The little lights add so much to the table - and then I also used battery light votive candles picked up at Target last July. Oh, Target - maybe they need to start supporting my habit :)
I picked up the peachy pink napkins for $1 each from Pier 1 last October. Very good find. The feathers are Christmas ornaments from Target this past year. They look like ornaments sold at Anthropologie a year earlier.
Bead garland - I made this out of a Target necklace that I never wore. I bought it just because I liked the beads so why not use them. Now its just something neutral to toss here and there.
I found this pottery at Yellow Door Market in Berkley. The artist has the best work.
Volcano candle - clearance breadboard from Anthro years ago.
This embroidery is from an estate sale. It wasn't finished, but I liked the fabric, design, and the colors that were used so it came home with me.
Overall it was a table full of the candy colors I like most. If you stay true to colors that you really like when you are out shopping you will find that everything will work together. Use what you love - and really use them - they may get broken but isn't it better to get them out of the cupboard and enjoy them. Pretty much a few times a year things I really like get broken. This year I lost a goodwill find vintage plate at 4th of July, I lost a Nora Fleming retired yellow egg this Easter, and usually there is at least one broken wine glass each year. In the end they are just things - most can be replaced - I just don't worry about it since things aren't the important part of life. I might be a bit upset at the moment - but it does pass quickly for me. Hope you enjoyed our Easter table.
