My Kitchen Easter Table

The past few weeks have been CRAZY y’all! After a fun weekend with my sister, things have hopefully settled back into what I consider “normal” and I can get back to the business of sharing fun things with you. Today I am going to share my kitchen Easter table with you!

I would tell you that I go a little more “simple’ when decorating the kitchen easter table, but the last time I did a sweet blogger told me, in a really sweet way, that my simple was different from her simple. That made me smile. I guess it’s all relative.

To me it is simple. And easy. If it wasn’t I wouldn’t do it, cuz I’ve got things to do! I don’t use a table cloth – I would be washing it every day. Whose got time for that? I do start with a clean table and add layers.

For me it’s easiest to start with my centerpiece. Once I have that done I build outward. This year, like last year I started with this white bunny. I love him. I added some grass, eggs and a few natural elements and my centerpiece was done. I always have my centerpiece on something that can easily be picked up and moved. I have to be able to clean the table. Yes, you are seeing a trend here…we can be messy!

Once I have the centerpiece down, I add my placemats, napkins, chargers, plates, glassware and silverware.

After I have these I like to add some whimsy to the place setting. This time it was with egg cups that I also made into my ” place cards.”

I found these egg cups this year at my local Kroger grocery store. One BIG problem though. They only had three!!!

So I bought these plain white ones and added green polka dots. I used chalk paint that I already had. I chose chalk paint because I knew that chalk paint  adheres to just about everything. PLUS – my placemats, chargers and china hutch are all the same duck egg blue color. Perfect!

To make the egg cups into my place setting cards I simply chose a ribbon and slapped an initial of the special person who will be sitting here on the ribbon. A little grass and an egg finish this place setting.  Really simple and easy!

My napkins were placed into the stemware and hold a surprise – a tiny egg. I may replace these eggs with a chocolate egg on Easter morning. Since the boys have grown up, I have to add chocolate wherever I can!! No Reeces peanut butter eggs or chocolate bunnies to mooch from them. Parent of the year, I know…

Of course, y’all know that I am gonna have my chalkboard art.

My kitchen easter table is set and ready for Easter morning honey bunnies. I can’t wait!

I think that it is fun and practical at the same time. I love that. Now that my table is ready, I can focus on other life shattering problems. Like what kind of pendants I want to hang over my island!

Until next time….
