How To Decorate a Pink and White Easter Tablescape




Welcome back to Life on Greenwood! I'm putting together a little tablescape for Easter. I don't usually display a lot of Easter décor, but this year I wanted to decorate a table. No, I’m not expecting company for dinner. Is anybody these days?

What I Used

So, I’ll be adding a few things that I recently purchased from Marshalls. The napkins are pink and white gingham with a cute little bunny looking straight at me.  They come in a pack of four.  I’m also using four miniature ceramic bowls that also have little bunnies on them. They are so adorable! They come two to a pack and I think they were like $4.99. 

The plates that I’ll be using are from thrift days gone by. I’ll be incorporating an enormous pink and white ceramic egg, which when open, resembles a cookie jar. I guess it could be used for cookies or other goodies. This was a Marshalls purchase for $9.99. It’s so pretty!



Using Thrift Finds to Decorate

Let me say that the majority of the décor on my dining room table is thrifted. The set itself was a Craigslist find that I painted a little while ago. Since painting the table white, the colors of my dinnerware and other décor really comes to life! When the table was a dark cherry, my table runners always seemed to clash. When I go back and look at old videos of the table, I wonder why I waited so long to paint it!

I anchored a garland table runner with two large white ceramic teapots. These teapots were second-hand purchases. I used them as flower vessels and filled them with pink tulips and hydrangeas.  

My pink chargers had been brown in a previous life. They too were upcycled thrift finds too. Love it!



Conclusion

I am so happy with this the way this turned out! I’m loving the pinks! Do you set a table or decorate your home for Easter?

There are so many second-hand finds in this tablescape!  It really makes me happy that I can reuse things and give them new life! I hope this gives you a little inspiration for your Easter tablescape!

Table Makeover Using Chalk Paint

  I purchased my second-hand cherry wood dining room set online several years ago. I liked the deep, rich color, but I knew I would paint it white. I  eventually painted and upholstered the chairs, but I was hesitant to paint the table. I really don't know why.  Maybe it was its size or the fact that if I screwed up, I would  be stuck with a mess in my dining room. Any way, I eased into the project by painting just the table legs and sides.  I lived with that for two years until I finally got the nerve to go all the way and paint the table top.  How I Did It I used the color Saw Mill Gravy. It's an off-white, but has grey undertones, in my opinion.  I watered down the paint just a little because it was so thick.  I started the project with a paint brush and finished with a roller. To be honest, the paint roller should have been my go-to method from the jump. It was definitely the way to go for this flat surface.  Conclusion I love the results! The table has a nice chalky matte

Rock Garden for Beginners

Got a bare patch in your backyard? Grass won't grow? Create a rock garden!  To say we had bare patches in our backyard is putting it mildly. We had a desert! Over the years, a huge part of the backyard had become shaded by a tree and the desert was getting bigger each year. This combined with our personal neglect lead to a dry, dusty condition. So, we hired a landscaper and lawn treatment expert to help rehab our lawn. Before they got started, I decided to mark off a small area for a rock garden. I've never done this before, but I was confident that I could make this work. So, let's start at the beginning! Where do you get rocks? Your big box hardware store, nursery or quarry carries rocks. But if you live in Connecticut, you should be able to find rocks right in your backyard. We had tons of rocks! I spent a few hours digging up large and small rocks and moving them over to the area that I mapped out for my garden.  Prepping The Soil I used a rake and a hoe to clear pocket

Home Improvement Prep - Avoiding The Rabbit Hole

Isn't it funny that as soon as you start one project, it leads to another project, and then another? It never fails. You think you're going to touch up the paint on a wall and you end up painting the entire room. And not just painting the room, but painting it a whole different color.  The Rabbit Hole And now that you've re-painted the room, the drapes no longer match. So you have to replace the drapes. And you can't just replace the drapes in your living room without replacing the drapes in your dining room because the two rooms are connected and you must have a consistent flow. Right? Oh, and you noticed that the rug is just a tad too beige or gray and is throwing off  the blue in your new drapes. What to do? What to do? So now, you're down a rabbit hole that could possibly lead to endless home improvements.  Who can relate? I had to stop myself the other day as I was about to go down this road again.  Make a Plan So before I picked up a paint brush and hammer, I
