Stephen thought I was a little crazy but I wanted to share my Easter tablescape with you. It didn’t turn out exactly the way I wanted but I suppose few things ever do. In my mind I envisioned having lots of terra-cotta pots filed with lush, green, real grass. HA!! I should have known better than that. You do remember me talking about my track record with plants, right? This is how my grass turned out……good thing it wasn’t my science fair project!
Back to the subject at hand.
Would you like a lovely Easter table too? No problemo! Lay down a table cloth (I made my tablecloth and napkins out of a blue bed sheet from the clearance section in Walmart. Score!)….layer with sheets of brown craft paper…..set out your dishes……layer with your napkins….add your carrot treat holders (click here for tutorial)…..then learn how to make these awesome Easter centerpieces (super easy) and print off the free bunting and banners below. Got it? Good! Lets get started. 🙂
Since my grass didn’t grow I decided to go with spanish moss. I hesitated on the spanish moss for a little while because it looks grey and dead and I wanted green and lively. So, to perk up the spanish moss I spray painted it green and then placed it in the pots. Then I assembled my mini Easter bunting.
- Print off bunting (download file below) and cut out the pieces.
- Wrap each piece around a small cord and glue. I left about .25″ between each piece.
- Tie the ends of the strings to chopsticks.
To finish off the centerpiece I cut out a little tomb from gray cardstock and three crosses from brown cardstock. I attached each of these to toothpicks with tape and stuck them in the pots along with my Easter bunting.
If you want, you could always do a this slight variation on the centerpiece. I included both the “He is risen” and the “Happy Easter” bunting for you. Hey, you like variety right?
Next up is the place cards.
- Print off the banners (download file below), cut out the pieces and add your guests names.
- Wrap each piece around a snack pick (these are a little longer than tooth picks and have a nice, non-pointy top) and glue.
No matter how your table looks I hope that you enjoy a wonderful meal with your family or friends this Easter. 🙂
