Hi everyone! If you saw my recent spring home tour then you know that I’m having fun with shades of blues and pretty pops of sunny yellow. The cheerful color scheme is carried into our kitchen and dining area. Today I’m sharing a aqua and yellow coastal Easter tablescape as part of a Styled + Set Holiday Entertaining Blog Tour hosted by Designthusiasm. If you are coming over from Citrine Living, welcome to my home!
When it comes to decorating for Easter, I have shied away from bunny figurines and such. Infact, the only bunnies we’ve ever owned have been in the form of a stuffed animal or made out of chocolate. And the chocolate ones all met their delicious demise… hee,hee.
Maybe my bunny avoidance over the years was to try to keep the commercial aspect to a minimal and instead focus on the real reason for the holiday, the celebration of Christ’s resurrection and the gift of forgiveness and new life.
For the tablescape, I was thrilled to have spent less than $10. The pom-pom trimmed table runner is from HomeGoods and ok, those little pom-poms remind me a bit a fluffy bunny tales. Will that suffice? I pulled together items I’ve owned to create a cheerful table setting with a bit a of coastal touch, of course.
The whimisical striped candles were a late winter find at Target and go so lovely with the table runner.
All of the dishes are also from Target which I’ve collected over the years. Unfortunately they just stopped carrying the aqua salad plates. They all look so pretty on the Coastal Burlap Chargers. And my favorite addition to this year’s aqua and yellow tablescape are the Decoupaged Coastal Easter Eggs which are sprinkled across the table and nestled in individual ramakin “nests”.
Learn how to make the coastal eggs HERE. They are so easy!
The beachy burlap chargers are even easier to make. Click HERE for the tutorial.
Our forsythia bushes are in full bloom and clippings from it make a simple and lovely Easter centerpiece. My house is filled with forsythia at the moment!
Aren’t the little bird salt and pepper shakers adorable? Those too were from Target a few years back.
Here is a different angle I don’t show too often. This console table has baskets underneath which holds all the kids’ shoes, so I’m sparing you the site of the muddy soccer cleats spilling out. The basket is our little drop station where keys and sunglass are usually tossed. It is clean at the moment thank goodness and looks pretty with the two Easter Egg Topiary Trees.
I had the topiaries on a past Easter table. Learn how to make your own Easter Egg Topiary Trees HERE.
I’m still enjoying having the dining room chairs in the kitchen along with the linen nailhead bench. I’m not sure when or if I’ll move them back into the dining room even!
I hope you enjoyed our simple and cheery aqua and yellow coastal Easter tablescape! Next up on the tour is French Garden House, be sure to check out her lovely home and all the homes on the tour are linked below!
