Thank you World Market for sponsoring this post.
One of my favorite things about Spring are all the bright colors…especially if those colors include pink and aqua. When I saw the new Aqua & Pink Floral Blake set I new I had to design my Easter table around it. The colors are beautiful and bold and just what my dining room needed.
I’ve always loved Easter. I remember running downstairs to see what the Easter bunny brought, getting dressed up for church, bringing flowers from our garden for the cross, and eating Honey Baked Ham. Sometimes we would go out to eat but no matter where we went I made a beeline for the honey ham! It’s just not Easter without honey ham! Well, that and dyed Easter eggs. A few days before Easter my kids and I will decorate eggs together but this year I decided to introduce a new tradition…decorating marshmallow bunnies! As soon as I saw the kit I knew my daughter would love it. Before we could get started decorating I had to set the table first.
Here is a collage of my table in progress…
I started with a white tablecloth and added the Aqua & Pink Floral table runner. I first had the placemats on the table but decided to use them as chairbacks. I used some double stick tape on the chair so they would stay in place.
We typically have fresh flowers on our Easter table but I really liked the geometric terrariums and thought they would be really pretty sitting on moss mats. I filled the terrariums with moss, painted eggs, and a few little Spring time friends.
It’s a pink bird…I had to have her!
Next I placed some colorful Riegelein hollow chocolate eggs on the moss because for a pop of bright color.
Choosing bunnies was really hard because there were so many cute ones. I couldn’t decide so I let my little girl choose. She said she liked this one because it looks like she is cuddling her carrot.
Next I added these bright green 9″ Aegean melamine plates because they matched the table runner perfectly. I opted for the pink Foil Geometric Sheila Napkins because it’s such a bright happy pink and I love the gold trim.
The wooden bunny napkin rings were so stinkin’ cute I had to grab ’em!
This is such a happy looking Spring table…I love it!
I really like the idea of edible grass because traditional plastic shred just gets tossed out as soon as the candy is gone. This comes in three colors: pink, blue, and green, but since I was going for the more natural look I opted for green. I cut it up into little pieces to simulate a bed of grass. I adore these grass cupcake liners! I saw them sitting on a shelf as I zipped past to grab some candy and had to have them. Had no idea what I was going to use them for at that moment. Didn’t matter…in the cart they went! I think they look pretty cute with edible grass in them just like this.
Now the part my daughter was so excited about…the marshmallow bunny decorating kit! (*Marshmallow bunnies not included.)
This was so cute and so fun to do together. I put the icing on the bunnies and chicks and she decorated. This would be the perfect craft to do with kids on Easter either at home, at church, or even a restaurant because there really isn’t much of a mess. I think the grandparents would really enjoy doing this with the kids on Easter.
How cute are these?!
I personally love the chick with the flower and pearl necklace the best.
We then placed the decorated bunnies, each of them different, in the grass cupcake liners, with Jelly Belly beans, and a gummy carrot.
As an extra treat I baked a batch of carrot spice muffins in the nonstick bunny pan which I think turned out really cute…and tasty.
I hope you enjoyed some of my Easy Easter Entertaining Ideas. This table took about 30 minutes to put together and I am so pleased with the way it all came out. The colors are bright and cheery…the perfect way to welcome Spring.
