White bunnies, pastel colors, eggs, peeps you get it. That’s what I think of when I think of Easter. Today, I’m showing you how you can create a modern tablescape while still maintaining that Easter feel! Come see my collaboration with Melanie and 3 other amazing ladies.
Melanie with the YouTube channel ”Living Luxuriously For Less” invited me and several wonderful ladies to join her for a Spring/Easter tablescape challenge. Melanie is not only beautiful she’s sweet, kind, and has a heart of gold. She also teaches women how they can live Luxuriously For Less. The rules are you have to create a Spring or Easter Tablescape. You can choose any store but…. it has to be a great deal.
My inspiration…. for this tablescape were these Carly Dodsley Bunny Dishes. This was a Homegoods find. I had to have it for my Easter Tablescape. Notice the detail on them? They have a vintage touch around the rim of the plate.
I wanted a bright accent color for my tablecloth. I chose fuchsia pink. It’s bright pretty and it goes perfect with my black and white table runner.
Last Year’s Tablescape….
This was last years Easter Brunch. The color scheme was way different than this year!
All year long I scored great finds. Here’s my three tiered dessert stand I purchased from… you guessed it, “The Flea Market” for $5 it was brand new still in the box.
Another sweet find! This Mikasa Bella Rose Platter was $5 also! The raised pink roses is a stunner. It’s perfect for this tablescape. I plan on putting lots of yummy deviled eggs in this baby!
My Centerpiece was kept simple. I wanted to use lots of greens. I placed my faux boxwood planters that I use every spring. The adorable moss bunnies that I had FOREVER…. are placed next to them. The polka dot ribbon was a cute added detail.
Above the bar cart I placed a Gold Pineapple Print that I borrowed from my office. My DIY ”Press For Champagne” frame suits the theme.
My Great Deal…
Last, summer I stumbled across this Vintage Cosco Cart at my local flea market for only $8. I’m thinking… ”A Mimosa Bar”. Bar carts are so popular now! If this cart looks familiar to you it’s because you may have seen it in your grandmother’s house or someone’s else house years ago. That’s the perks for shopping at flea markets. You can always rely on a unique find.
Although, the cart is in fantastic shape. I wanted to freshen it up just a little. First, the hubster disassembled it. Next, I gave it a good cleaning to remove any stubborn dirt to prepare it for the spray paint. Robin’s Egg Blue is one of my favorite color.
Rub N Buff was used on the legs.
This Cosco Cart was made in the 1960’s . They were used for wheeling your cart around to serve their guest. Not much different back then how we use them today. When not in use for serving it’s stored in my office to hold my growing addiction of planners and note book obsession. Did you noticed how the Rub N Buff finish turned out?
Styling your bar cart can be so much fun. There are no rules. Choose interesting unexpected pieces to use.
The fuchsia flowers is such a nice contrast with the blue and white vase.
It wasn’t easy trying to set and Easter tablescape without adding your traditional Easter colors but I did!
Have A Happy Easter Everyone!
