Easter Tablescapes and DIY Easter Tree!
Hi Friends! You all know by now how much I love every holiday! I wanted to share some fun activities and tablescape ideas you can enjoy for Easter with your family and friends!!
Every year I ask all of you to send me your Easter tablescapes to share for the following year, and this one was certainly inspiring. At first glance it looks way too difficult to achieve. If we look at each element: boxwood running down the table, jars filled with lemon or limes, and vases with tulips, I think we all can master this beautiful Easter table!!!!
Layering of different items is certainly the key to a showstopping table!!
What a great idea! Garnishing the food with florals is super easy and adds a bit of springtime to any delish dish!
Fruit also adds that little something extra!
And don’t forget the desserts! Pretty alone, they look even more Easter-festive with the floral garnishes!! For more tablescape ideas go here, here, and here to see my past tables and some wonderful creative tips!
I just can’t seem to have a holiday dinner without a craft. I have found it’s important to have all the materials laid out and ready to prompt your guests to dive right in.
I decided to make an Easter tree this year with my family for our craft! Everyone could contribute and why not have the 20-30 year old’s get back to their roots of decorating Easter eggs?
This is how it turned out! Before you get started, make yourself a material list and check everything. I was totally not thinking when I gathered all the materials and headed down to Galveston for Easter -I forgot so many items that I needed!
I grabbed branches and a vase, not thinking about how to make them not tilt over. Fortunately I found some string and bubble wrap which made it somewhat sturdy.
Oh no, I couldn’t leave the outside of the vase looking like this! Thankfully my resourceful Mom was there and found some white shelf lining paper in the pantry that we were going to give a try as a wrapping. I picked up some cherry blossom branches from Michael’s and hot glued some of the flowers to the wooden branches.
The shelf paper worked out great and we made a focal point at the base with some of the flowers and some shells from around the house.
Sweet Mom looks thrilled with the results! Or maybe she is just smiling because we are taking a happy hour break! Cheers!
Our tree is all set up and ready to be decorated!
For Easter egg decorating ideas go here!! There are so many beautiful ways to decorate an egg! We tried a variety of different techniques including drawing with colorful markers and traditional egg dying. You can also glue pretty decorations like flowers onto your egg for an extra special touch. Don’t forget to hot glue a ribbon onto the top so you can hang your tiny art piece on the tree!
Here is my daughter Sammy and her boyfriend Dylan’s creations!!
Everyone had so much fun decorating their own little art pieces!!
We definitely have room to add on each year!! This was super easy and really fun!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day with family and friends. Please email me your Easter craft or table for next year’s inspirations. Leslie@segretofinishes.com
