All Things Easter – a Tablescape

Bunnies and carrots go together at Easter.  The concrete bunny is new for the garden this year.  Before he gets dirty outside, he’s useful for a little indoor enjoyment.

Easter Tablescape

You may be surprised that I actually bought a few new things for Spring this year.  Even The Land of Making Do needs little additions now and then.  Don’t worry.  I’ll be making full use of carrots during Spring, Summer, and through the harvest in Fall.

Vine carrots are from Tuesday Morning ($3 and $4).

Carrot minis ($3/set of 3) also from Tuesday Morning were meant for some sort of napkin ring DIY.

I’m prone to change my mind (just ask HH), so there’s no transformation yet….

The DIY Spanish Moss Mat should give us visions of Easter egg hunts on green lawns.

Center Arrangement

Eggs go with Easter.  An egg dying kit reminds us of preparing for egg hunts.  It won’t be long before it’s time to dye some real eggs.

Jelly beans are useful as Easter basket candies.

A basket of colored eggs definitely speak Easter.  This sugar-free, cavity-free Easter egg side-walk chalk makes an egg-celent (sorry, couldn’t resist!) basket filler.

A moss bunny on a stick (Pier One) is something versatile for many types of projects.

Its mate was included in my DIY Easter Cross Wreath on the front door.  The wreath ribbon was also repeated on this basket handle.

Napkins are shaped into bunny ears – floppy like the real thing.  (Here’s the tutorial for the rings and napkins.)

Place Setting

Pink salad plates with bunnies and carrots are useful for Easter.  (Bordallo Pinneiro from Portugal purchased at T. J. Maxx many years ago.)

PAM’s light blue china dinner plates (Meadow Breeze by Syracuse) are a nice Easter color, and they match the DIY Plate Runners.

Rattan chargers ($5 from Wally World) add texture to the place setting and match the vine carrots.  After seeing chargers like these at Pier One for a price around $10 (yes, each!), I felt it was time to splurge for them at Wal-Mart.  (Yes, aren’t we all spoiled by $1 chargers at Christmas time?)

Easter Table Plate Stack

The wired vine-look napkin rings remind me of the crown of thorns placed on Jesus at his crucifixion.

So does this wreath over the piano.  Definitely Easter.

Crown of Thorns

That’s what Easter is all about, after all.  Without the resurrection of Jesus, none of our other Easter traditions would have meaning.

Easter Table Set for Six

As we gather for sunrise services on Easter morning, hunt eggs, and gather with friends and/or family on a warm afternoon, let us be thankful for His gift of sacrifice.

Do you attend sunrise service on Easter?  Do you get together with family or friends in the afternoon?  Do you hide eggs for the kids to find?

I’m sharing this post at Tablescape Thursday.  Won’t you join the fun?

      Thank you! The grass is actually pink, too. It all looks pink on my computer, except for the orange carrots, of course. That’s really interesting that the color looks different for you. I wonder if other readers see pink or salmon… 🙂

    I have enjoyed viewing this lovely tablescape with the new additions for Easter. The carrots are so useful for different seasons and I must pick up some, too! The pink bunny plates are my favorite for your layering for each place setting! Have a great week!

      Thank you, Patricia! I appreciate you stopping by. And, I also appreciate all the sharing you’ve been doing on Facebook. I owe you a tablescape! 🙂

    I really enjoyed seeing your tablescape – pretty colours and love the “easy” bunny ear napkin fold. My favourite element is the rustic look of the Walmart chargers – would love to get some of those! I also like the symbolism of your napkin rings and wreath which point to the true reason for the season. I will be attending a Maundy Thurs, a Good Friday and Easter morning service at our church. A very blessed Easter to you!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks $10 for a single charger is exorbitant. I will admit to having paid that price for a few glass ones, but the majority of the chargers in my inventory cost $2-$4 each. I’m guessing that even if I had Hilton or Kennedy money, I’d still be a fairly frugal person. Who knows, though? I’ve seen chargers costing as much as $245 each. SOMEBODY’s apparently buying them!

    You did a beautiful job with this table, Kim! Enjoy your new bunny and the fun carrots!

      Thank you. I know what you mean, Alycia. And, I’ve never seen chargers that cost that much! That is ridiculous. Think of all the people you could feed with that money. I’m too practical to be extravagant, I guess.

    It’s so fun seeing your DIY plate runners again. They are perfect with your table setting. The first time they were an inspiration to me. In the end I went a different way, but I have some truly beautiful valances that I hope to put into service…soon?!! 😉

    The rattan chargers are perfect for this holiday!! Great choice and yes…even $5 seems like a lot after the Christmas $1 Chargers. 😉

    I too see your bunny plate as salmon. It looks stunning and complements everything beautifully. My heart sings for peachy, coral, salmon shades. I’m looking forward to doing a room with one of those colors for the major accent. Yes…I’m planning already. 😉

    Isn’t it funny that our screens see the colors differently? I’m guessing it’s because I have a dark screen and my laptop is 5 years old. Regardless…..it’s truly lovely and I’d enjoy sitting down to dinner at your table. 🙂

      Thank you, Diane. The other day, I noticed my bunny plates looked salmon on my computer, as well. Ha! I cannot figure it out because it didn’t look salmon to me when I first published the post. Isn’t that weird? Anyway, whatever the color, I’d love for you to come over for dinner any time! 🙂
