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.
