Sweet & Simple Easter Tablescape

March 07, 2016
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?
