In the past two weeks, the weather has warmed up. The trees are blooming. There is a lovely yellow layer of pollen everywhere, and that can only mean one thing: spring! Which also means one of my favorite holidays, Easter, is upon us.
As I set out to decorate our dining table for Easter, I gave myself one restriction: I had to use stuff that I already had. No new purchases! This is when my small hoard of thrifted dishes and random props really comes in handy.
For this first look, I kept things very simple.
The centerpiece is a thrifted brass tray filled with garland (Hobby Lobby) and my DIY painted Robins eggs from last year.
The chargers are from Hobby Lobby, and I taught myself how to do a napkin rose (thanks to Pinterest).
The second look was inspired by my DIY watercolor eggs from last year. The coordinated well with these colorful melamine plates I've had for a million years. I only have four sets, so this table setting is for a small group!
I think the first one is my favorite because I love the little eggs hidden in the centerpiece, but I also like the spring-like colors in the second option. Which one do you like best?
This weekend we are going to the Round Top Antique Fair! I'm so excited. Have you ever heard of it? We will be some of the 100,000 people heading to Round Top, Texas for a huge antique, vintage, craft fair that spans 15 rural communities and has more than 50 different sites. I've always wanted to check it out, so we are taking my parents to celebrate their birthdays. I'll make sure to take plenty of photos and recap it here on the blog next week!
