With Easter quickly approaching I thought it would be nice to set up an Easter table setting and dessert table. After all, tablescapes are a favorite. I used things that I had as well as a few new things from my go-to places - Dollar Tree, the thrift shop and Amazon. Here is what I put together...
One of the main things I wanted for my tablescape were rattan chargers, I thought for sure I was going to find an affordable set on Amazon, but to my dismay I wasn't successful. The cheapest charger plate I found was this one, $16.90 from Amazon. That wasn't inexpensive enough for me so I went with 9 1/2" bamboo paper plate holders from eBay. You can find a similar set here. You can image how upset I was to find them at Michael's for $4.90 on sale after taking the pictures for the post.
Since the rattan plate holders are smaller than traditional chargers I went ahead and used my trusty old gold $1 AC Moore chargers, to add some layering and depth to the setting. Love the place card? It's a custom set from my blogger friend - Lee's The LVR Shop on Etsy.
How adorable are those venetian inspired dessert plates? Can you tell they are paper plates?! You can pick up a set here.
To decorate the table I used a $1 yellow table cover along with a burlap ribbon as a runner. I found the most awesome beaded Easter eggs at the thrift shop and scattered them on the table. I wanted to create some height but didn't have a candelabra set, I used 2 Barefoot Bubbly bottles that were leftover from my Blogger + Friends Galentine's Meetup. Also from the Galentine's meetup, I repurposed two tiny bottles from Target's dollar section and placed a fake flower in one.
Another item I already owned was the Target "Happy Easter" banner. I loved investing in items I can reuse every year. The gold candle I've had for a few years, I currently use it to decorate my office closet but works well on the table among the bottles and decorative eggs.
With all of my tablescapes I like to put down a tablecloth not only for aesthetic purposes but also to hide my risers. As with my last tablescape I borrowed a tablecloth from my mother, this time a white crochet table cover. Promise, as soon as I buy my own home I will invest in my own tablecloths. I used many of my staple pieces - a cupcake tower, a petite cake stand, serving tray and glass ramekins.
I created a floral arrangement using things I already and just added some dollar store styrofoam glitter eggs at the bottom. Nothing says Easter like Peeps, jelly beans and chocolate robins eggs so I made sure to include those on the dessert table.
