This is my first time participating in BNOTP's Tablescape Thursday. Since it's an Easter celebration and I just happened to take pics of our table this past Sunday, I decided to join in the fun.
I used a vintage white square tablecloth layered with another square cloth in a springy plaid. A vintage white cotton runner with crochet edging finishes the look. Dishes are Garden Delight by PTS International Interiors.
(oops...I realized that I didn't take pics of the table with flowers in the mini vases).
Here's one of the vases filled, however I used yellow daisies for Sunday's dinner.
The centerpiece was a grouping of various items that I had around the house and a few wooden eggs that i painted a springy robin's egg blue. The cloth eggs I had tucked away in with my Easter decor and updated them a bit with some tea dyed staining to make them look old.
I love texture so i've mixed it up a bit with the centerpiece. The wire basket with vintage croquet ball, fabric & wood eggs, the woven orb alongside the ceramic lettered orb are a few yummy additions.
Here's a mini tute for the salt shaker vases that i embellished with string & paper:
- various salt shakers w/tops removed
- double-sided tape (a small piece on backside to adhere to glass shaker)
- cardstock run through printer on business card setting-punch holes on each side (don't cut out the tags but rip them for an imperfect look)
And I saw this idea on another blog that I thought was a cute way to add to my table display. For more information hop on over to Under The Table and Dreaming for a free download & directions.It really helped me keep on track with dinner so i didn't forget anything!
Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter weekend with your family and friends.
