So getting things done at the last minute seems to be a recurring theme with me lately. And, with Easter being just around the corner, fast and easy are exactly what i’m looking for. So, if you’re like me, and you’re entertaining this Easter… fear not!!  This Easter table is easy but will leave your guests wondering how you always manage to get it all done and will leave your super star status in check… don’t worry…  you got this 🙂

Aren’t these little eggs just sending the cuteness factor through the roof! I bought these chocolate truffle eggs from Indigo, but you can probably pick them up or find something similar at your local grocery store. The nesting material I bought from a local craft store. If you prefer to make edible nests, you can find the recipe here.

I used tulips as the centrepiece – they are my absolute favourite flower and are always easy to find this time of year.

If your vase is smaller, you can always use your cake stands to give height to your flowers. I put my tulips on a white cake stand and decorated the edges with the same truffle eggs.

These cute little bunny salt and pepper shakers, I picked up at Homesense last year.

I love adding a little treat to everyone’s plate for any holiday! Even the adults get excited! To finish, I added some greenery for a little more colour.

Here are some other easy and great ideas to try…

Repetition is always effective. I love these blue mason jars with these bright yellow tulips. This is so easy but would make a stunning table centrepiece.

Another great treat to give your guests is these chocolate eggs in these mini peat pots.

I hope this gets your creative juices flowing! All of these ideas can be put together with things you can find from your local craft and grocery stores – they are also inexpensive which is always a plus!

Happy Easter!

Ciao for now,

Natalie

A kitchen office can serve as command central for your family, or, if you work from home, it can serve as your home office. Having a desk in such a central location is great for multi tasking – I couldn’t imagine being upstairs, tucked away in a home office while life was going on in my house. But, […]

Nineteen years ago this Halloween I got engaged. Two years later on the same day my oldest daughter was born. So needless to say Halloween is pretty special around here. Celebrating a birthday on Halloween is not for the weak – only a total hero can interrupt a whole-day candy binge for a slice of birthday cake […]

So about three years ago I decided I wanted to put up wainscoting because I couldn’t believe how much character and architectural interest it adds to a home. I debated whether to solicit my hubby and try it ourselves because everything I read online said it wasn’t that hard to do – but I was skeptical. So I went ahead and got some quotes. But after […]
