Easter is almost here, how wonderful! My son has asked me for the hundredth time when is Easter break? Well, next week...Next week!He is already tired of all the homework he's had to deal with during all this year, quite a lot compared with last year's when he was a fifth grader.
We're going to be home, taking a well deserved break ;) just spending quality family time. And with that in mind, I was working last week on all my Easter projects, the mantel and this tablescape among others.
The table's certerpiece is the Easter egg tree, its soft colors were the palette for the whole arrangement.
The placemats were a nice re-purposed project. Long time ago when I was in love with black I bought these black plastic placemats at CB2, nowadays that I'm in love with everything white they came in handy. ;) After spray painting them white, of course, and using some old Thomas the tank engine stickers to create polka-dots they were painted a really nice lilac color.
And what a difference! I can truly say paint never ceases to amaze me.
I was planning on having a brunch. We love tea, so the tea set was brought, the mismatched cups and saucers were brought in too.
When I got the little figures for the Easter tree at the thrift store I also got the cute rabbit inside the shoe and the other driving the carrot :) Only one buck each, was a great deal. The pink gingham table runner was also bought there, $2. The only thing is it's not exactly a table runner, it is a window balance, but hey its good to think outside the "window" ;) I did nothing to it, it works perfectly well as a runner too.
You already know my daughter is taking a ceramics class, well, this little house is one of her latest creations, isn't it lovely?! Her other creation, the white bunny is back at the table too.
The napkins were an after season sale at Target last year.
This is my Easter table, but let me tell you, we have already used it a couple of times, why wait, don't you think?! Little hands have placed many of the figures in different spots on the table...
And that makes me happy :) Having stuff that is enjoyed, that the kids can touch. There is still a whole week or even more, to enjoy this nice setting.
Happy Easter Everyone!
