I had all intentions of really going ALL-OUT this year as far as decorating for Easter/Spring but unfortunately I didn’t get it all done. It wasn’t because I ran out of time…it was more that I ran out of enthusiasm
I did manage to get some done so I will show you that. It all started when I was going into consignment shops looking for Gabrielle some suits for her play. I spied some PINK salad plates for !.50 each. Now I don’t know if that is a good price for them or not but I loved them so I snatched them up envisioning a pretty pastel table setting for Easter.
From there I found some light green plates at The Dollar Tree along with some baby blue tins that I stuffed with Easter grass and some Easter Eggs on sticks that I also picked up from The Dollar Tree.. This is what it looked like all together.
I think they turned out pretty cute! The only problem it that I was only able to get 4 of the pink plates…that’s all they had. :( The rest of the table was decorated with a pair of bunnies I picked up from either Family Dollar or Dollar General. They were only $3.50 each and were adorable. I added some hanging styrofoam eggs (also from The Dollar Tree) to a tree my mother gave me. The Dollar Tree had some other frees also but they were smaller and I wanted something a llittle bigger.
Remember the hurricane vases I made back in the Fall? I decorated them for Easter also. I put some plastic eggs in a glass cheese dish that I bought from Princess House years ago.
I bought a glittery sign from Family Dollar for the wall. My intention was to make a wreath with some pastel colored eggs and hang it in the middle but I never got around to it. The carrot tree and the carrots were purchased from The Dollar Tree.
On the other side of the room, I put some flowers from the dollar store in a Princess House pitcher. I love the look of flowers in the home but I have a BLACK thumb so I have to go the artificial way.
I saw a great idea on Pinterest showing a chocolate bunny sitting on top of malted Easter Eggs in an apothecary jar. I did that also and every time my grandson, Davis came to visit he would stop in front of it and just drool but he never ate one.
My last project was another Pinterest inspiration but I can’t find the link. Using the “My Peeps” stamp set from Close To My Heart I created some “art” and put it in a black frame. I’m not 100% in love with it, I think it needs some more tweaking. Sorry about the poor quality photo…I couldn’t get a pic without a glare on it.
Well, that’s all I finished before Easter. My china cabinet sits bare even today.
