Every year, once Easter has come, I feel as though spring has finally arrived. And this year for Easter, it was a gorgeous day! The sun was shining most of the day and it was a beautiful 80 degrees. My mom and I were also off for this holiday since it fell on our weekend off. I would have liked to host an Easter brunch but with my grandma in a nursing home now, it was easier to have the brunch at my mom’s house. But this did not stop me from decorating and setting our Easter table.
I had a few decorations from last year but ended up purchasing a few more. I recently bought a console table for a spot at the bottom of my stairs and needed some decor items for it. Of course I checked out what Christmas Tree Shops, Michaels and Kirklands had to offer this year. As everyone can tell from my previous posts, those are my go-to stores along with Kohl’s.
I decorated the coffee table with a new lantern I had found on clearance at Christmas Tree Shops that was decorated with a floral and egg wreath and LED candle. It definitely has a worn look to it that I will have to touch up at some point. But for this year, it did its job.
The tv stand I decorated with a burlap bunny banner, a floral egg urn, a plaque and a burlap bunny. I’m not a big fan of a lot of egg and bunny decorations which pretty much overtakes Easter decor, but I thought these were a little bit more subtle and not gaudy.
The new console table I got on sale at Kirklands and I was also able to apply a coupon, which scored extra points in my book! The lamp I purchased at HomeGoods at a decent price and the mercury glass base works really well in the living room. While at Christmas Tree Shops, I fell in love with the carrot tree. The delicate cloth carrots as ornaments for the tree added that extra height needed for the table.
The coat closet door I hung a bunny shaped wreath that actually has tiny LED bulbs wired throughout that can be lit up. But I think the wreath looks great without them turned on! I also placed a plush door hanger on the knob to add that extra flair.
Now for my pride and joy: the Easter tablescape. As most of you know, I love to set my dining room table for any occasion and this was the perfect spring setting. I used an ivory floral printed table cloth and napkins and pastel green floral printed placemats for the linens. I used gold chargers and new napkin rings I purchased on sale from Bed, Bath and Beyond and I used an additional twenty percent off coupon on each napkin holder. I love a good deal! The centerpiece I also purchased on sale at Kirklands. The ivory, pastel green, pink and gold color scheme really gives that spring feel which is what I wanted to accomplish.
The kitchen island I also decorated with a little bit of Easter. I placed a white bunny statue in a tray I had used last year along with a faux floral bouquet and lantern. I thought the tray came out really nice and added a classy touch to my Easter decorations.
I didn’t place a tablecloth on the island this time around, I felt as though it didn’t need it . However, I still set three place settings anyways. The placemats and napkins I purchased at Christmas Tree Shops and the burlap bunny ear napkin rings were also bought from there as well. I like the island to have a more casual feel. The island is used for everyday use and our dining room table is for more formal or special occasions.
