Good Monday morning all! Is today a little better than last Monday with the time change? I finally snapped out of my funk mid week, but this year’s time change was a rough one. Spring is in the air for sure with the fluctuating temperatures and sprouts of new growth all around.
This week I am excited to show you what I enjoy most, decorating my table 🙂 . With Easter upon us, I thought it would be fun to show 3 different styles and I think you will be pleasantly surprised that I show how plastic ware can still dress up your table, with the best part being you can pitch it!!
First on the table, my LOVE, Fiestaware! I started collecting it just under 20 years ago, and I still adore it the same. The whimsical colors just radiate happiness. Maybe you are a Fiestaware collector like me, or you have another brand of colorful dishes. Hope you enjoy <3
Did any of you pick up the cute Diet Coke bottles from Target? Aren’t they darling?
The colors scream Easter, don’t they?
I’m really excited about this next table setting. Everything you see is plastic except the serving bowls, platter, and a few decorative pieces. Let’s say you don’t have fancy dishes, you can dress your table on a small budget and it will look glamorous! And the best part is, instead washing the dishes, you can skip to the Easter egg hunt right after your meal. Oh wait, does that just happen in our family? Every holiday growing up was brutal waiting for the women to clean up after the meal before we could get to the fun part!!
Looks like a table full of glass! Ok, like I said, it’s not ALL plastic, so I wouldn’t chance pulling a tablecloth out from under it all, but isn’t it crazy how pretty it looks?
Seriously, doesn’t it just glisten? I love it! Now, my napkins aren’t Easter themed, but I shopped my home, and I am not hosting this year; otherwise I would make sure the napkins had more of a holiday flavor.
This final table setting was fun and probably what speaks to my style the most. I love the chargers and cabbage plates from Pier 1 and I am using the same neutral dinner plates I purchased from Homegoods this past fall. I did throw in 2 Fiestaware plates to add some contrast.
I crafted another banner 🙂 Took me back to my scrap booking days. It’s a little hard to read, but it says Welcome.
These ceramic eggs used to belong to my late Aunt Edda. I have them scattered throughout the house in bowls, nests, and now they sit pretty atop plates 🙂 .
I found this cute little guy at Crate and Barrel this season. I have moved him around so many times, I wish I would have picked up the other 2 colors they had.
I know I have mentioned these faux peonies purchased from Pier 1 many times, but aren’t they lovely?
I want to give a shout out to my friend, Lora, who owns www.driftwood-decor.com , her shop features unique home decor and I can testify to how beautiful they are in person. These votive candles are from her store and the beautiful robin egg blue enamel bowl shown above. I do hope I have provided some ideas and inspiration today in creating a beautiful table setting, even using disposable items 😉 .
