I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend!!! Ours was good! Very busy, but very good! We had a large gathering of wonderful family and friends!
Today I'll be sharing with you my Easter Tables! We actually had 3 because we had 20 people eating and I wanted us all to eat together!
I wasn't able to get a whole lot of pictures because I was so busy right up to the moment the guests arrived....I just snapped a few quick shots as people were knocking on our door...haha!!!
I'll try to explain them for each pic if you're interested in where they came from!
Our First table was a table for our "Grown Ups". The "Matriarchs and Patriarchs" of the families gathered! This included my father and his girlfriend, my husbands parents, and my cousins from Maine who were in town visiting!
For this table (and all tables except the kids table) I used a basic white tablecloth. I then took round placemats and lined them up for the table runner. On each placemat, I tried to place something.
In the very center was a round glass cylinder with some spring bunny tinsel from the thrift store running through it.
On the sides of that were some pillar candle holders with some candles wrapped in Easter ribbon, and the cutest little "Easter egg house"! I found this at our church's thrift store for just $2.50 and it was just cute as could be! I put some little electric votives in there...you can't really see that in this picture, but it was adorable!
The bunny inside the cloche with the green Easter Grass was a find from our church's local thrift store. It was so cute...and just $2! I added a few lavender flowers from the Dollar Tree in her little back pouch!
The next table was the LONG table of "Kids and Friends" My hubby and I sat here as well as some of our friends and our second cousins.
For this table, I needed to accommodate 9 people so I made a long table by putting two Sam's Tables together...again both with white tablecloths. Here it is...with my little ones in the background! They were waiting at the window for our friends and family to arrive! They were so excited! It was so cute!
I kept this table a little more simple since is was a thinner table and was holding more people. The color came mostly from the placemats and the colored daisies on the table, as well as the pastel chargers.
Each place setting had a pastel charger, a white dinner plate, a cute little Pier 1 bowl with a different colored pastel peep in it, and a pastel place card with their name on it.
Here's the "Little Kids' and Grandkids" table! Vinyl Tablecloth, some turquoise plastic plates and a cute bunny on a hand-made pedestal. Tutorial coming soon! (for the pedestal, not the bunny...haha! I got that at a thrift store!)
So much of the centerpiece stuff was purchased at our church's local thrift store as they had marked 50% off their Easter stuff! I found so many cute things that would have been cheap at full price, but at HALF PRICE, they were even better!!!
I wasn't able to get a picture of our dinner buffet with all the food on it, but I was able to snap this picture of our "Drinks and Desserts" station! My dad's girlfriend is quite creative and she helped make the presentation spectacular!
I hope you enjoyed this quick tour of our Easter Tables for this Tablescape Tuesday! Have a wonderful week!
