Hi guys and welcome to the final instalment of our #Eastertable series. These three weeks have flown by. In the past 2 weeks, my friend Danielle over at Food Love and Happiness blog and I have given you ideas on how to decorate the Easter table and make some tasty recipes for a kids proof Easter. Today I’m showing you how I styled my Easter table using thrifted goodies.
A few of the items I used are new (cutlery, drinking glass and flowers (duh)) but most are items I found in thrift shops and at garage sales. Some of my thrifted items I had for years and some I hunted down just for this project.
My aim was to style a non-traditional Easter table. So I wanted to stay away from the yellow chicks basically. I have a soft spot pastels so I tried to use it in a new way. When I found the confetti plates I knew I had to have them for my table. I used my small pastel blue plates to coordinate with the confetti plates.
In this image below you can see which items are thrifted. The Egg holder in the middle of the table was a gift from a friend that I sprayed white. It’s really super heavy made from cast iron and it was dark green. I’ve had it for several years and I use it a lot. It just sits on my kitchen counter. Every year when easter rolls aaroundI get it into my head to paint it another colour. Well now I finally did and I like it.
I really wanted to have fresh flowers on the table because they make everything pretty and extra festive. I bought a €7,50 supermarket bouquet and rearranged it into my thrifted milk bottles. I still had lots of flowers left to fill a small vase. There’s a top tip for ya, supermarket flowers. It’s good quality for cheap and I’m all for that.
The napkin holder rings I thrifted last minute and intended on repainting them. But then I didn’t because they matched pretty nicely with the rest of the setup. Check out the cutlery giving us some gold accent. I know they are not gold but have a brass finish but hey GOLD is all I see. I think it goes well with the pastels. Ok so now let’s look at pretty pictures.
