To New Beginnings

It is almost Easter week, and I looooooove Easter! Last year I picked up some fun, colorful nests at Hobby Lobby. I have been itching to put together a beautiful Easter table using them as inspiration.

I took a two-year hiatus from this blog, and I have missed it and all of you. It was time for a fresh start, and setting a pretty table for one of my favorite holidays is a fantastic place to start!

My Inspo

Aren’t these gorgeous? They are available again this season at Hobby Lobby, so you still have plenty of time to grab them before next Sunday!

I also had this quirky little candy dish that my Grammy painted for me when I was a little girl. There was a color scheme going! Then I hit the jackpot when I found the gorgeous blue embroidered runner in my cedar chest. I had forgotten that I had picked it up at an antique store and stashed it away. Beautiful linens are a weakness of mine!

Trial and Error

My original plan was to use two taller floral arrangements to anchor a flag bunting. When I placed them on the table, they looked entirely too massive and did not allow for conversation. Plan B it was. I deconstructed one of the large arrangements, pulled out some of my little juice glasses, and created 3 small ones. They are so sweet!

So now what was I going to use to anchor my bunting? Two tall white candlesticks were perfect! Sometimes plan B is better than plan A. 🙂

I used my Cricut to cut the little flags and slid them onto a piece of yarn. So simple!! You honestly could just cut some by hand. I just happen to love my Cricut!

See how they can just fold over the yarn.

Oh, and the other large arrangement found a spot in my entry. So, yay!

A Little Closer Look


Notice how the pink gingham paper mimics the pink gingham napkins.  🙂


The colors of these Hershey’s chocolate eggs are so right!

I sure hope you enjoyed my little Easter table and that it inspires you to create a fun one for your people. One last thing….a pic of my little people 15 years ago.

Oh, the sweetness.

Happy Easter, all! He is risen!! God bless.
