With Easter in exactly one week, I wanted to share a fun & festive Spring themed DIY Easter Table Setting!
This is the very first holiday we are spending as a family in my parents newly built home; therefore I wanted to make the table extra special this year! The goal was to create a design that embraced spring, through the use of fresh florals and a pastel colour palette. I infused natural linen and hints of burlap to bring a more casual feel. Vintage accents where added with the use of a distressed three-tier dessert platter and my grandmother’s silverware.
Instead of creating one large floral arrangement, I purchased three different sets; pink tulips, white tulips and carnations. Each arrangement was placed in a different style vase, allowing for a casual, mix & match look. The objective was to allow the florals to appear more natural and less tailored looking.
For the DIY project, I simply purchased white styrofoam eggs at the Dollar Store, in which I painted a champagne colour. Rather than dying the eggs, I decided to give them a more 'gold leaf' look by applying the sponged effect. This allowed the white base undertone to peer through, giving the egg dimension. Once dried, I placed each egg in its own small individual bowl, on top of a pile of artificial hay. Although they aren’t edible (maybe next year!), they add charm and visual interst to the table!
You can achieve a beautiful table setting without always splurging. What’s important is purchasing key pieces that you can reuse in future events. I recommend investing in a good set of white dishes and natural linen placemats. These items are versatile, tasteful and timeless. For the festive decor items, I recommend a more budget friendly option, such as my beloved HomeSense. Not only are their items stylish, but affordable as well - especially for seasonal decor!
There you have it, My 2016 DIY Easter Table Setting! Wishing you all a HOPPY Easter next week! Remember, it’s the only time of the year you won’t be judged for eating endless amounts of chocolate Easter eggs - so enjoy it! ;-)
