Easter Tablescape with Painted Plates and Pink Tulips

After church this morning, and a busy afternoon, we went out to a local restaurant for Easter Dinner with Jon, Tawn and both of our Moms.  It was really nice to relax and have time for a long visit (and have someone else do the dishes for a change!)  When we got home we had a nice video chat with Jason and Bella after their day at the pool on vacation.  

A few years ago our Easter Tablescape was created on a budget with easy DIY projects.  Jason and Sarah made a delicious meal and Mary and I helped Sarah with the decor.

We went with a pink and green theme and used what we had on hand (with a few changes of course, like painting the plates pink) and I got lucky with a last minute clearance sale for the napkins.

We were able to squeeze 14 at the table using folding chairs along the sides to save space.  I made the runner using $4.00 clearance fabric.  The edges were hemmed with iron on fusible web.  Mary knows how to sew now though so I'm sure she would have made a great double sided runner instead.  I had planned on making matching napkins but 1/2 price was too hard to resist so I bought them instead!

Here's a close up of the painted plates.  (click here for the Temporary Painting technique post). The napkins are folded in thirds and draped across the plate to carry the green over the edge of the table.  Sarah made the bird's nest cookies which were perfect to tuck into the salad bowls as a party favor.

The butter dish and salt and pepper shakers gave us our touch of silver.  My white ceramic bowls and garden birds pulled the look together.  I like how the embossed pattern on the bird coordinates with the paisley print.

Yummy homemade dessert buffet.  The folding three tier server, extra napkins and more of the white ceramic accents.  Sarah made carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, lemon pound cake and chocolate ganache frosted cupcakes.

May our Lord send his choicest blessings upon you and your family this Easter. Have a Blessed Easter. Unknown
