Easter Decorating At Our House

It's Easter at our house!  I've never really gone all-out with Easter decorating, but I decided to give our breakfast table a Springtime look.

Pin It!

So here's what I'm starting with ... a blank canvas for the most part.  This pub-height table typically looks like this (maybe with a little stack of mail taking over a corner, ha!). 
  

I started out by getting some plastic eggs.  I picked up this pastel-colored pack from the Dollar Tree ($1) and I also had a pack of white eggs from Hobby Lobby ($0.50).
 

Add to the mix -- four somewhat creepy-looking bunnies ($4 total) from Dollar Tree.
  

I wanted to incorporate these precious egg cups from Homegoods ($5) into the mix.
 

And I knew one of my favorite vases (a wedding gift from sweet Misty) would make a pretty centerpiece.
 

Only issue at this point?  As cute as the pastels are, I just didn't think that those colors would jive with the rest of our home decor.

Enter a new friend:  Krylon's 18kt. Gold Plate metallic spray paint. I picked this up from Hobby Lobby using my 40% off coupon on their iPhone app.
 

One warm-ish evening after my walk with Drake, I got to spray paintin'.  Thank goodness for Ian's access to these big medical cloths ... they are perfect for projects like this.



I put the gold bunnies on top of green napkins, and the golden eggs went into the egg cups and into the large vase in the center of the table.  I added glasses and plates that I already had.  Lastly, dried sprigs from Old Time Pottery ($1.99) went into the center vase.
   

It was also time to add a little greenery to our corner, so I got a new houseplant for us.  It just needs to be raised a little bit so it takes up a little more visual room.








Here's a little before and after to show the changes to the table.




I love how this little table turned out, and I'll be sad when Easter is over!

Do you decorate for Easter?

  3. Your table looks great! I love the way gold bunnies and eggs pick-up the gold outline in your prints. :)

    We do decorate for pretty much all of the holidays, but it is more for the kids then me. I enjoy their excitement. ;)

    Love it!
