Easter is just around the corner so today I am sharing two Easter tablescape ideas that are simple, inexpensive and require minimal dishes (can I get an Amen).
When my husband and I were in the very early stages of considering building a home, we always dreamt about filling it with people for all reasons and occasions. People traveling through, for holidays, birthdays, bible studies, parties and get togethers. Having a space large enough to accommodate such things is not something we take for granted and something we always work to steward!
WHERE TO SNAG THE EASTER DÉCOR
A great place to stop prior to the busyness of the weekend this week is your local HomeGoods. They always have inexpensive little decorative pieces you can add to a tablescape or mantle for a little festive addition. They also have some great options for disposable dishware and napkins, which is a great option if you’re hosting a large group!
Michaels is another great place to swing in to if you are looking for some inexpensive accents. That’s where I purchased my egg garlands that I put on the tables and in the large candle holders. They almost always have coupons so download the app on your phone prior to checkout to make sure you are getting the best price!
Target is the other more-obvious option for seasonal décor. They typically have inexpensive options in the Dollar Spot up front, in the nicer home-décor section and in the very back of the store in their seasonal décor section.
Lastly, two of my favorite places to snag seasonal pieces are World Market and Kirkland’s. World Market has great, more classic pieces that are more neutral options – this is where I bought both of our Easter Baskets from last year. Kirkland’s has some more playful pieces that are fun for kids. I have also noticed that Kirkland’s offers décor that mentions the Lord/scriptures, which we find valuable to include in our home!
FORMAL DINING ROOM TABLESCAPE
First of all, can we all just acknowledge my husband’s handy work with this board and batten wainscoting? I am so pleased with how it all turned out!
I loved our tablescape from Easter brunch last year, and wanted to keep it simple and inexpensive. So I am reusing the egg garland (which Michael’s is selling again this year), and (like last year) will be grabbing some tulips from our local grocery store.
I have always loved a tall dramatic tablescape, but learned (through trial and error… and my husband constantly moving them during the actual party) they just aren’t very functional! You can’t see the people across the table from you – and isn’t that the whole point of sharing a meal together?! Ha. So I’ve been challenging myself to make similar statements, by using my shorter arrangements.
For the dinette I went with a little bit more casual and playful approach. I grabbed the bunny ear napkin rings from my local HomeGoods, scalloped pink plates are from Target and the napkins themselves are also from Homegoods. I am keeping it simple this year with paper plates to minimize the post-brunch work!
It’s funny but having kids has really made me such a typical “mom” in wanting to have fun little eclectic seasonal pieces for them to enjoy (and I do too, of course). We have bins that we keep in our basement and label each holiday to make it easy to reuse every year while keeping the house organized.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful Easter with your family and friends celebrating our risen Savior!
