Pastel Easter Table

Easter Sunday is a wonderful celebration of New Life!  
This year I set the Easter Dinner table in pastels,
 because I had bought this pastel plaid tablecloth and napkins for a steal last year after Easter. 
I needed to set those pastel plates off on something and was having a hard time finding just the right placemats.  So I made these 6 placemats from a yard and a half of colored burlap fabric from Joann's.  They cost me a total of $4.49- so a great way to add color to a table without spending a lot!
Soft colored candles on white pedestals along with some egg filled cloches were used for a centerpiece.
 I found these bunny napkin rings at Pat Catan's the week before Easter for 50% off, so for $1.49 each I just couldn't pass them up.  
Along with their companion bunny treat dishes which were only $2.50 each.
Heck, these cute little cupcakes were more than the napkin rings and they were scarfed down in no time! 
We had a wonderful Easter.  Everyone was home.  The house was full.  My heart was as well!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.

  9. Just out blog-hopping and came across your Easter table - so glad I did! I really like all the details of your table especially the greenery-type candle rings at the base of the pedestals - looks great with the pastel tones and adds a touch of "nature". Your handmade placemats were very economical and look fantastic. Hope you had a wonderful Easter with all your gang!
