Easter Tablescape

Easter tablescape

In order to prepare my dining room for Easter I really wanted to change the look of that black chandelier, because it didn't say Spring at ALL!



I took one of the most important materials for any DIY'er: Spray Paint and gave it a new look, adding some sparkles closed the deal. You can read about the chandelier makeover right HERE.   

By the way, the "crystals" stayed put for a whole week, then I noticed two of them on the table! That was exactly seven days.  On day nine, two more, and that's it. It's now day No.11 and the remaining ones are holding strong.  So my conclusion for this way of "holding the beads technique" is that is good for just one week.

I wanted the table to have most of those soft spring colors: blue, green, yellow, and pink, making an emphasis on the blues and greens.

Now, changing the course a little bit, I like my dining room table, the finish is OK it has some scratches which is good because I don't bother if the kids make one more, but its so dark I had to have a tablecloth to give it a less formal feel. The only problem was, I didn't have a tablecloth or at least a decent one. The last one I had, since I didn't use it that much, got converted into a bed skirt, but well, that's a different post.

I bought this fabric (about $2/yard on sale), that is soooo light weighted and attached a piece of lace at the ends  and Voila! my new tablecloth was created.

I asked my little helper to build at least two baskets but he changed his mind after completing the first one and began instead building his own master piece, something that to me look like a ship, he said it wasn't. :)

I began to put things together but surely whatever I put here couldn't match that view! That flowering tree looked like little bits of clouds scattered in between the tree branches, awesome! And those dark chairs were somehow breaking the spell!  I traded them for the white chairs in the kitchen table and two blue ones I painted long time ago that were from the previous set also in the kitchen.

At first I wanted the tablecloth to be all crumpled, I liked how it looked from the top, I liked how it looked from the ends of the table, but when I looked at it from the sides it was a big mess :/

So, I changed my mind and just straightened it and ooohhh boy, it looked much better.

Some boxes full of goodies for the kids (Eight for a dollar).


A little nest full of chocolates gives company to the lonely basket filled with eggs resting on brown paper scraps.

Taking center stage is the Easter Egg Tree in a Jelly Bean base.  You can check how to do it HERE.

Some more chocolates wouldn't hurt!

And two small bouquets of daisies and baby breath bring that magnificent view from outside, inside.


Everything is ready for a nice Easter Brunch with my family.

I hope you have a Wonderful Easter!

  3. Cristina- Your whole table looks just lovely. Nice job with the lightweight fabric-perfect gauzy Spring look. I love your egg tree and the little box your son made. Looks like a perfect tablescape to me. I, too, like the "feel" of the slightly crumpled up cloth on top of a table but don't like the "look" of it so much from a distance. Hope you are having a great week-xo Dina

  8. Hi, Christina! This is my first visit to your blog. I'm coming over from Tablescape Thursday. I am super, super, super impressed that you actually went to the great lengths of painting the chandelier to give it a more Spring-like look!!! I have done a lot in the name of decorating before, but never have I gone so far as to take the chandelier out of the ceiling, spray paint it, and put it back! THAT is dedication to the cause!!! :-) The end result is beautiful! It really lightens up the room! Evertyhing from the dishes to the candies to the cupcakes looks fantastic! I actually liked the look of the table linen all scrunched up, too! I hope that you and your family enjoy a wonderful, blissful, blessed Easter!
