This week, I shared my tips for going green at home, as well as my nature-inspired Easter tablescape that was part of a Canadian home bloggger hop. I can’t wait to see everything start to green up outside, you? It’s definitely one of my favorite times of year when that starts happening!

Nature Inspired Easter Tablescape

Easter is just around the corner, and I thought it would be fun to create a new tablescape for our family gathering. After this long harsh winter, nothing makes me happier than seeing the freshness and vibrancy of green mixed with natural elements of Spring. This year’s table is all about embracing simplicity.

Putting a tablescape together for Easter can be cheap and cheerful. I always like to mix the old with the new in any decorating project to make it interesting and budget-friendly. It’s all about layering and using materials with different textures and tones.

I started with a basic runner that I created out of a piece of cotton canvas. Tearing the edges and putting it through the washer and dryer was all it took to get the natural feel I was going for.

I set the table with my existing dishes and flatware, and layered some new yellow and white striped linen napkins that I wrapped in a bee-printed cotton ribbon from May Arts.

I topped the napkins with simple peat pots that I filled with organic wheat grass I picked up at the grocery store. I  embellished the pots with jute string and a flag I printed out and attached to a chopstick. Here’s where you could mix it up a bit and use them as place cards instead. I plan on sending these Easter peat pots home with everyone as a small gift.

Here’s the Easter printable I created in a soft mint color. Simply click the image to get the PDF (or go here), print on cardstock, cut out, fold in half and glue to a chopstick, skewer or popsicle stick.

10 Easy Ways to Go Green at Home

Thank you to Direct Energy for sponsoring today’s post and helping me share some of the ways we’re making our home a little more eco-friendly #DEsmarthome.  As always, opinions are 100% my own.

Around our home, we’ve made small changes that make a big difference to the environment and, in turn, our wallets. Growing up in the country created a strong connection to nature for both my husband and I. Our moms were composting long before that became the “cool” thing to do, and reducing, reusing and recycling were just part of farm life. Now, many years later, we embrace being eco-friendly and try our best to leave the smallest footprint on the environment as we can.

Think it’s hard? Not really. It’s about making simple changes both inside and out…
