A SIMPLE EASTER TABLESCAPE

Easter is quickly approaching and the warm weather is actually making it feel a little bit like Spring around here. 


Today I'm sharing how setting a table can be fun and simple. I like to shop my house and find things I already have sitting around since it will most likely only be that way for a day or two. 

Here's how I created a simple tablescape that didn't take very long or cost very much at all. 



I had leftover fabric in this bright yellow ikat print that I cut into a runner. (Other options here and here ) I took 2 lanterns I already had, added some candles and my green moss balls (similar here) from Target (they have come in handy for lots of different decorating). I like to either keep the flowers all a monochromatic color or separate them by type into smaller vases, collected from around my house. In this case I had different flowers in different colors that I used. The centerpiece is a Threshold piece also from Target that I filled with mini daffodils and covered with moss. 




Shopping tip: you can score some cute flower holders at the Target $1 section right now. These CB2 ones are really cute too! 







To create a cute name plate, I used a toothpick with a flag sticker wrapped around it and wrote each guests names on the flag. I placed them into the moss on the little nests I found at Michaels. You can buy similar ones all made up at Pottery Barn. I added a little chick or carrot to each. You could also use washi tape to wrap around the toothpicks as well. 








I love colored and patterned dishes but just recently invested in a simple white set because it's so much more fun to switch out napkins and serving pieces instead. Mixing a fun patterned salad plate with white place settings is fun too. These ikat napkins are from west elm but here are other springy options that I like:
