Hello! Welcome old and new friends! Thank you so much to all who are returning, I so appreciate your visits <3 And, for those of you making your first visit, my name is Martha, and I love pretending to be a blogger 😉
Today, I have joined together with an amazing group of gals to inspire you when creating a Spring Tablescape whether you are hosting Easter dinner, or just having company over.
I absolutely love flowers, fresh or faux, and love to decorate with them. I believe they bring life to a space, and invite you into a room.
I use flowers each and every time I create a tablescape. Depending on the time of year, my flowers of choice may not be available at my local florist or grocery store. Sure, they will always have something… but it most likely won’t even be close to what I envisioned. I was ecstatic with my recent discovery of Afloral.com and am thrilled to present my table for Easter with the splendor of these gorgeous faux blooms.
These aren’t the faux blooms you are used to seeing. I find that when shopping for faux flowers, the colors are too bright, and the fabric attracts so much dust!! Afloral has real touch blooms, and believe me, you won’t believe your eyes! No one will realize they are fake; no doubt you will catch someone leaning down to smell them, and then feeling them. That just recently happened with this arrangement 😉
The exact florals I used will be provided for you at the end of this post, and there will be a coupon code as well!
After receiving these perfect faux blooms, I knew I wanted my theme to be soft hues of rose gold, pearl, and gold. I picked up some eggs in the craft section at Walmart, and ordered my favorite crafting paint from DecoArt.com.
I wanted to create a somewhat glamorous look, so I went with Dazzling Metallic Acrylic paint in Rose Gold, White Pearl, and Champagne Gold.
I love the soft sheen of this metallic paint, and this paint drys super fast! I applied spray adhesive to the bottom of a couple eggs and added some glitter for a little extra glitz.
Leave it to the Target dollar spot to have the cutest little pink cake plate ♥
I also purchased some cheap black candlesticks and sprayed them and the smaller craft eggs gold, adding some glitter to those as well. My tablecloth was gifted to me from my mom after a recent trip to Ireland. Easter seems like the perfect occasion to use it.
I brought out those same gold chargers I used at Thanksgiving and Christmas 😀 But, to add a little more charm, I purchased 12 x 12 gold glittered scrapbook paper layered underneath. It’s fun to see how the same piece can look so different dependent upon the setting.
My grandmother’s delicate china is perfect with its pretty pastel details. I layered them with some fun Easter plates. It’s amazing what the act of layering does, isn’t it? I love playing around with different colors and textures.
So, in imagining this is indeed Easter brunch, I have included FREE Printable Menu Cards for you to use at your table. There are 4 (3.5 x 5) cards to a standard sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper. I printed mine on cardstock. Click here to print your menu card sheets.
Aren’t these tulips enchanting? It’s even hard for me to believe they aren’t real! There is a vast array of choices in types of flowers and plants. I already placed a second order, and yes, I am looking forward to FRESH blooms in my own yard soon!
Here are the stems I used from Afloral.com
