Easter is such a wonderful time to celebrate with friends and family and to introduce the joys of spring to your home. This tablescape was fun, simple to create (my daughter loved helping with this one) and brought so much cheer too! With the help of Poundland and some DIY details, it was also low-cost yet effective.
To recreate this look you will need:
Flowers (I used artificial ones)
Bird nests – similar here
Decorative eggs – similar here
Gold spray paint – the full Craig & Rose spray paint collection can be found here
Other items from the garden or home such as feathers, cones & ornaments
I’ve had vintage rose glasses on my shopping list for a while, so when I walked into my local Poundland and saw these little beauties on the shelf I have to admit I did a little dance inside! They also had them in a gorgeous purple colour too, perfect if you’re introducing the 2018 Pantone Colour of the Year Ultra Violet into your tableware. If you can’t find these glasses in Poundland, you can also find similar herehereand here
Adding the gold paper strawsadded a sense of fun and occasion.
As there was quite a lot going on down the centre of the table I kept the place settings very simple with square white plates from Marks and Spencer, white napkins and pink hydrangea flowers tucked into neutral colour ribbon.
I bought the hydrangea from Poundland as full blooms then cut them individually to spread across the table. You can find similar here.
Having the individual petals strewn across the table as well as in the napkins added whimsical garden feel to the centrepiece.
I’m mightily chuffed with our gold plastic bunny, which started its life white and had a very quick yet effective makeover using Craig & Rose Artisan Spray Paint. Craig & Rose Paints have supplied me with a number of their paints and each time I use them I’m so impressed with the quality, finish and how quickly it dries. You can check the nearest stockists on their website.
I love the colour of the ‘Bright Effect’ artisan spray.
I think one of our daughters may ask to have this little fella in their bedroom by the end of the Easter break, he’s so adorable don’t you think?
The rose pink vases which match the glasses are also from Poundland and were advertised as candlesticks but are the perfect vases for our white flowers and decorative Easter eggs on sticks – another Poundland purchase. You may be lucky enough to find some similar vintage stem vases or candlesticks on Ebay.
I bought this pack of two birds nests from Poundland too (similar here)and removed the white foam eggs that were glued to the the smaller one then replaced them with these gold dusted eggs from Homesense (similar here) along with some loose feathers and a bird on a clip (similar here) which we had in our Christmas decorations box.
This adorable pink bowl was also from Homesense and I can imagine it coming in handy for lots of different things, like for sweeties at parties, nuts or crisps when hosting drinks, or for things like sugar or cream at an afternoon tea.
This little cloche normally has a votive candle inside, but doesn’t it look pretty with our bunny paperweight inside?
Above the table we suspended glass balls from the pendant light using clear fishing wire and filled them with moss from Poundland plus another bird and some more flowers and feathers. They’re kind of like little abstract nests on imaginary branches!
We spread the Easter cheer elsewhere in the kitchen with this gorgeous felt freestanding bunny and nest, both from Homesense.
To eat the children had bunny potatoes waffles with ham tummies and blueberry eyes, plus cucumber and pepper flowers with cheese.
They were somewhat delighted with their Easter lunch!
For dessert they were given an ice cream wafer sandwich and a bowl of berries to make their own animals.
I hope you have enjoyed this table and I hope you have a wonderful Easter. More beautiful tablescapes can be found on my Pinterest board.
