Our Easter Tablescape

Welcome to our Easter tablescape!

For some reason, the Easter holiday always sneaks up on me.  Thanksgiving, Christmas – we have major build up for those guys.  But all of a sudden, spring has sprung, and Easter is here. So simple is better (these days, that’s true for pretty much everything in my life!) I actually had most of the items for this table – I just rummaged around all of my “hiding spots”….ahem, please don’t tell my husband how many hiding spots I actually have 🙂

This year we incorporated:

Simple White Lenox Tin Can Alley Dinnerware

Gold flatware from West Elm

Anthropologie Horta Champagne glasses

Fantesca Chardonnay!

Pewter Braided Placemats from Amazon

Couleur Nature Batik Bird Printed Napkins from Sur La Table – these would be beautiful too!

This is a fun DIY project to do with your kids! I mean, they incorporate glitter, sooooooo what’s not to love?

DIY Glitter Filled Easter Eggs
Glitter – (we used this Glitter Pack)
Clear Easter eggs from Michaels ($.99 each!)
Quickie Glue pen

1.) Take off top of clear egg and fill up with glitter about 1/4 full.

2.)  Pop top back on egg.

3.) Using a glue ballpoint pen, write down names for place cards on a thin strip of white paper.

4.) Sprinkle glitter over glue.

5.) Brush off glitter (funnel back into tube to re-use).

6.) Roll both ends of paper for a fancier look.

Each place setting has a slightly different look…

Kara: old wine corks add a festive feel

Kate: dried lavender from the garden

Kacey: small white stones and mini purple carnations

Sorella: A beautiful pink flower

You could also scoop up a whole bunch of these eggs, fill them with coordinating glitter and hang them  together all at random lengths with flowers behind it as a spring wreath.  Or even hang them at various heights from your chandelier over your Easter table.

Happy Easter everyone – don’t forget to light some candles, put some flowers in a vase, and use whatcha got!  Get creative, but keep it simple is my mantra. And now you’re ready for the food – who is making these this weekend?

Kara, Kate, and Kacey

Deviled Eggs Recipe

With Easter almost here, it’s the season of Deviled Eggs! These are so delicious and so easy…you can’t mess them up, and everyone will devour them. Enjoy!

Easy Peel Hard Boiled Eggs

Place eggs in pot large enough so eggs can sit in one layer. Cover eggs by at least an inch with cool to room temperature water. Bring water to a boil. Let water boil for 2-3 minutes. Then turn off heat. Cover the pot and let the eggs sit in the water for 13 more minutes. When 13 minutes are up, dump out hot water and immediately cover eggs with cold water again. Let eggs cool in water. Refrigerate immediately, or peel to make Deviled Eggs!

Delicious Deviled Eggs

1 dozen eggs
Yellow Mustard
Mayo
Ranch Dressing
Italian Salad Dressing (optional)
Paprika

1.) Hard boil 12 eggs. Once cool, peel all the eggs.
2.) Gently slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out the yoke, and set aside in a bowl.
3.) Add to yokes 2 heaping tablespoons of Yellow Mustard, 2 heaping tablespoons of Light Mayo, 1 heaping tablespoon of Light Ranch Dressing, and a splash of Italian Salad Dressing (optional). Mix together.
4.) Spoon the mixture into a small plastic Ziploc bag. With scissors, snip off a small corner of the bag. Squeeze the deviled egg mix into each waiting egg half.
5.) Sprinkle with Paprika.

What are you doing for your Easter tablescape this year? Designing what the table will look like for big meals has always been a love affair of mine. However, since having kids, I find I’m not quite as …’involved’ shall we say? So lately, I’ve been just rummaging through the house and choosing things I already have lying around…check out this years table!

 

cheers!
