Chicks and Eggs

If you're like me, you probably have a bin marked "Easter"...filled with really cute chicks, and eggs and bunnies and lambs.  Setting an Easter table is just plain fun, so I hope you enjoy my rather colorful holiday tablescape.

I started this one off with a cheerful plaid tablecloth, purchased from Crate & Barrel many years ago.  With so many colors, finding accessories is simple.  I choose bright yellow braided placemats from Kohl's...

...and topped them with my Hampton Green plates from the Crate. 

These plates certainly have gotten a work-out this Spring!  I found some vintage raspberry linen napkins in my stash...

...and folded them into pockets to hold the silverware.  Once again, I am using my Lela...

...recycled wine glasses from Crate & Barrel.  Now on to my decorations.

My guests will know just where to sit, thanks to these darling jute carrots from Pier 1 that I am using as place cards and party favors.

The base of my centerpiece is made from three faux grass mats from Hobby Lobby.  I think they make a really clever runner.  I tucked these pastel wooden eggs from Whole Foods into the grass.

My favorite candle holder is just perfect to hold little tea lights, this time nestled into colorful jelly beans. 

And finally, the star of this table, these super fluffy white chicks cannot wait for the party to begin. 

So have some fun.   Pull out all of your Easter decorations and make them part of your table! Coming soon...a new series that I'm calling Entertain Fair Trade.  Be sure to check it out!
