Easter Tablescape (#2)

Don't be bashful!
Easter is just around the corner and I've been tablescaping with one of my favorite food groups!
This is one of my favorite color pallets, it's quite a cool pallet but the chocolate bunnies warm it up!

I created a centerpiece in a milk glass vase and I've been enjoying it so much, you might even see it on my last and final Easter Tablescape next week!
I "created" a few different elements for this table. Because I've been on some kind of spray paint frenzy, I made some candle holders using Terra cotta pots and saucers and spray painted them with my all-time favorite spray paint. Yes, you read it right, Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze, has moved onto my "all-time favorite" list! It was formerly just on the favorite list...

The goblets I'm using are actually from Christmas, but I use silver year round and I really liked the elegance it brings to the table, not to mention goes along with the silverware.

I was thinking about the Chocolate theme, so before the fumes settled, I spray painted some standard plastic eggs with Design Master 'October Brown' Spray paint, added some Ric-rack and a button. This color is the most perfect chocolate color! It looks a little "Tiffanyesque" :)

Ok, next on the list to get a fresh coat of ocean breeze: charger plates...I have had these for years, they are a dime a dozen nowadays, and I got these at Big Lots, super cheap. They were gold and honestly, I just didn't use them, I'm a silver gal. I see using them a lot now!

The table covering is just some fabric I had in my stash

I used my glittered eggs, again, I just didn't use the pink and yellow

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you're inspired!

I'm going to be showing how to make this super cute treat basket out of recycled goods, next week.....I can't wait to show you! You'll be surprised what I used!

  1. I love the idea of those pots in blue and using them outside to hold candles ~ I can just imagine how pretty that would look! Love that brown paint you used. It looks like chocolate!

  2. Super cute and I LOVE the Blue spray paint...I'm going to look for some at the store! And I can't believe that I SAY I paint EVERYTHING...but have never thought of spray painting chargers.....LOVE how you mixed the blue and cream and chocolate. I'm "borrowing" some of your ideas....LOL!

  3. So pretty. I passed up some really bad chargers at Big Lots one day. Now I will go back & get them & paint. Great idea.
