Easter Dining Room 2014

Spring and Easter has finally arrived in our home!

I've been slacking on this for the longest time and you know me, I'm usually VERY early on the decorating band-wagon for the seasons or holidays, but this year, something just came up... ;-)

Anyway, enough excuses, here's my Easter Dining room for this year!


Easter is definitely a time for some cute-ness!
Again, I think I went a bit overboard, because this year, we won't be celebrating Easter at home.
We'll be at a friends house and that's where the action will be, so my Dining room is really just for 'DISPLAY ONLY' ;-)!


Moss Rabbits in my Credenza

I decided to use my Bird cage and fill it with eggs my kids have gotten from Easters-past. 
As you can see, from the size of this thing, a whole huge shopping-bagful wasn't enough!

My Easter Tablescape
I got the Faux Chocolate bunnies last year on clearance at "Cracker Barrel" and absolutely love them!
I also spread some nests with white eggs atop and capiz shell egg as a centerpiece.
I made the runner myself using these...

Dollar Tree Doillies - Coincidentally Radiant Orchid Doillies!

Simple and Easy
Initially too, I only had EGGS and RABBITS on my table, but...
Yup, flowers were definitely in order
I also changed up my glass shelving display with some paper-mache eggs I scored from a Garage sale and a Duckling candle from Goodwill. The Humpty Dumpty teapot was a prize my son won at a carnival and given to me. :-)

Re-used the same Easter Doillie Banner I made last year



That's it for now. I'll show you the living room next week!
So how about you? Are you ready for Easter? Spring? Hope so.

Hope you have a Wonderful Spring Day!

  2. What a great idea to fill the bird cage with plastic eggs! I've wanted a (non used) birdcage like that for years but never come across them - if I ever do I'll be putting some colorful eggs in there :)

  15. Vel, what a delight for the eyes!! Oh, you should have an Easter party and invite - ME!! I would love to see that wonderful table in person. You have certainly made an elegant centerpiece, but it is still a fun Easter look. I love your bird cage "egg holder" - what a darling idea. I hope you have a wonderful Easter at your friend's house. Take photos!!
