Way back when I first started to think about creating this blog, (and believe me that was a long time ago), I was visiting with my daughter right before the holiday and we decided to set up a quick Easter table. With Easter being just a few short days away I thought I would share it with you today.
I realize these photos aren’t the best but I was using my very old camera and was still trying to learn the proper way to take these photographs. (I guess this is a disclaimer for the photos that didn’t photograph so well – insert smiley face). Gee – what will I use when I have my new camera and the pictures are still not great!
Now – Remember we put this together quickly! (Another disclaimer??)
We started by putting together these glass jars filled with plastic eggs and “Peeps”. There are all kinds of ways to do this and I promise to get a post made in the next few days of just how we created them. It was really very simple. The main thing to remember is to use a small vase in the center of the larger vase as this will help to hold the “Peeps” in place and you will use fewer eggs. We used a small size of the plastic eggs but I think I would use jelly beans the next time I do this. But as I say, we did this quickly and used what we had on hand – don’t we all do that sometimes?
The flowers we added to the vases were faux floral bouquets from a wedding. We simply dropped the stems into the center of the glass containers – another reason for using a vase in the center of your larger vase – and for saving those old bridesmaids bouquets.
Using this as the centerpiece of our table, we next added the placemats to the table. My daughter found these cute mats at Target way back then – 2010 I believe. They are just adorable! We choose to use the bunny side for this table and save the pink polka dot side for a future setting.
She found these adorable plates at Target as well. The plates are melamine, look so cute and are great when you have little ones you are concerned about.
We tucked these special little Easter rabbits amongst the table setting and added a few decorative plastic eggs to give the table some extra “Easter Pop”.
Aren’t they cute peeking around the table?
To add a bit of fun to the look, we hung a pretty spring banner above the table.
And we are ready for a special Easter celebration. The kids loved it and it was great fun to see the smiles on their faces. Not sure it helped much in getting them to eat their vegetables though – I think they preferred to eat the “peeps”!
Got any special Easter ideas you’d like to share?
Wishing you a wonderful Easter celebration!
