Easter is right around the corner, and if you’re anything like me, you’re already getting a head count on who’s coming over, planning the easter menu, and deciding on how you will be decorating your Easter table.
We usually celebrate Easter at my in-laws’ place, but this year, we are in our new home so I volunteered to host at my home. I have been waiting for this moment since last Easter, when we were in the process of closing on our house and all I could think about was decorating and hosting. I was so eager and excited to host the following Easter in my new home and have been planning it ever since.
Setting The Easter Table:
Most of the items I used on my Easter table were ones that I already owned, I just had to go on a little scavenger hunt around the house and find all these beauties that were hiding away. Which goes to say, you don’t need to go out and buy all new vases, silverware, place settings, and napkins! Just do some digging and find items around your house that you can use or re-purpose in different ways (like making napkins out of scrap fabric you’ve had tucked away in your linen closet for years). Mix and match your vases and your place settings to come up with new combinations that you haven’t done before and it will feel like a brand new table. Most of my budget for this table was spent on fresh tulips; my weakness! I really wanted to dress the table up with some fresh flowers since nothing says “SPRING” to me like fresh tulips, but feel free to use artificial flowers as well (since you can use these for years and years to come).
The remainder of my budget was spent on a couple of green dinner plates that I picked up at the Dollar Store for (you guessed it) a dollar a piece and the green moss that I used to fill the vases (also from the Dollar Store). I mixed and matched the green dinner plates with some existing green salad plates that I own (see link HERE) and some white salad plates so not all place settings looked identical.
My husband was able to cut the wood slices using the tree that fell over in our yard earlier this winter, so that didn’t cost us anything (score!).
The burlap table runners I picked up in the fall at Target for $3/piece doubled as place mats and added a beautiful natural look to my Easter table.
I hope you guys will have the opportunity to dress up your Easter table as well, and remember- it doesn’t have to cost a fortune! This whole setup only cost me $30 out of pocket ( $20 of that was for the flowers!) because I mainly used things that I found around my home. Please feel free to use any and all of these ideas and happy upcoming Easter to all!
