...hello my dears
~ happiest spring! ~
are you all ready for you Easter tides?!
i've been delightfully busy
creating a few pretties for my easter table!
i wanted a whimsical fairytale like feel...
the food will be the beautiful color
while everything else is as a blank palette to showcase it!
some of you may remember my lamb from this post
~ lovely lamby ~
i simply adore him,
and anticipate seeing him on my easter table every year!
as soon as i "eye spied"
this sheer embroidered cross fabric at Joann Fabrics
i was inspired!
a small handful of pretties,
can become lovely napkin rings.
simply thread silk lilac blooms
and pearls onto white wire,
the length of your napkin ring
plus a little extra for twisting off
add a pretty band of organdy petal trim under each one,
fasten to your napkin rings
a delicate napkin ring holder!
i wanted pretty "sugared eggs" for each place setting
and looked all over for them
all the stores have done cutbacks ~
ie. back to basic juicy colors
ie. not too many fairytale like pretties to be found!
but, not to worry...
all you need is a few wooden eggs
(i like the weight of them better than paper mache ones)
paint them white and once dry,
paint them again with elmers glue and sprinkle with sugar
i mean sparkly white glitter!!
for my name place markers
i used silk petals that i removed from a few magnolia flower stems that i liked,
a feather rose for my "sugared egg" to nestle in,
a rhinestone cross charm,
(all of which were found at Joann Fabrics)
and pearl napkin ring holders that i already had.
put them all together and...
wouldn't you agree??
i wanted three candles on my table around lovely lamby
to signify, three days...
i used the tall holy candles
and tied them
ballerina style with tulle,
then added a pretty lace and pearl bracelet
around each of them at the bottom.
~ easy peasy loveliness!!
here is my set table...
i like to set it a few days before
as to not feel rushed
and i enjoy creating a pretty table :)
see the buffet?
it used to be a spiced pear color...
now, it has been Annie Sloaned!!
French Linen and then white washed...
i know it's hard to see,
but i made mini chandeliers for the inside!!!
and painted my candle cabinet to match!
i said candle cabinet...
i have a thing for beautiful soy candles...
i pulled out my white bubble glass dishes for this table...
i adore their swirly glass that has an opalescent finish
just like bubbles...
~ sigh ~
now i can focus on the pretty easter food delights!!
i wish each and every one of you dear readers,
a most joyous Easter time with your "peeps"
see what i did there?!?!
i will be sharing this plaster rose sculpture with you!
so tune in next time...
