Sweet & Simple Easter Tablescape

07 March
Today I'm sharing something I've never done before... and that is an Easter tablescape!

Yup... you heard me right, I've never in my life created a tablescape of any kind!

Of course, I've set the table for dinner before... even had a tablecloth and placemats... but never an actual tablescape with a centerpiece and place markers... let alone a themed one for a holiday!

I wanted to try my hand at creating one for Easter this year but since it's not normally something I do and I wasn't really sure if I'd want to do it again or even leave it out I didn't want to spend any money.

Easter Tablescape
I dug out my tub of Easter decorations and this is what I came up with.

These are all things I already owned or made new with supplies I had on hand. I don't own any tablecloths so I thought I could create a table runner from fabric I had on hand.

I used a pink wreath and laid it flat on the table and then put a cute clay rabbit in the center of the wreath.

I used plastic eggs around these cute pink and yellow cat-tails. My trick to keep the cat-tails in the center was to stick the ends of the stems inside a salt shaker with the lid removed (another small container would work but a salt shaker was what I had) and then put the eggs around that to hide it.

The green box is actually a drawer I borrowed from a small chest of drawers I have. I filled the bottom with crumpled paper to take up space and then put natural colored, crinkled Easter grass on top.

My mom made the cute tags years ago and I found the honeycomb eggs a few years ago at one of my favorite antique shops.

I added some vintage white plates from my collection.

And I made some cute potted bunny butts to use as place card holders!

I'll show how I made these and the simple no-sew table runner in follow-up posts. They are super easy! :o)

I love how my very first tablescape turned out!

In fact, I'm leaving it! It makes me smile every time I walk past it!

It was a fun little challenge to create my very first sweet & simple Easter tablescape without spending one dime!

Do you create a holiday or seasonal tablescape?
