Easter Table Ideas

I'm working on the table setting for Easter brunch at my parent's house this weekend. This is what I've got so far:

The green gingham tablecloth is something I pieced together using scraps of an old tablecloth my mom used for antique shows. It's got several seams from where I sewed the various pieces together but the gingham pattern really helps disguise that.

The Waterford water and wine glasses are part of my mom's permanent collection - remember I used them here and here.

The pretty white dishes are Shelley. They're on loan - mom's got them for sale in her booth.

Now it's time to accessorize. Here are some of my favorite Easter table decoration ideas:

I can't stand how cute these Sugar and Charm folded bunny napkins are. They're made from spray-starched square napkins. Better Homes and Gardens created an easy to follow video on how to make 'em - click here to watch it.

I think it might take a while to make, but I love this Easter egg garland nonetheless. Per Better Homes and Gardens it's made by stringing together about three-dozen dyed eggs that have been blown-out. Details here.

I think my sister Katy would really get a kick out of these monogrammed egg place cards by One Charming Party. After all, who doesn't love something personalized just for them? All you need is alphabet stickers and craft paint - details here.

These cute daffodil candy cups by Martha Stewart would give me a good excuse to buy some jelly beans. They're made using cupcake liners and craft paper flower cut-outs - details here.

This Marshmallow Peep Martini recipe from She Knows is intriguing but I'd be content to just have that cute Peep bunny garnish my water glass.

Because I'm from DC, I can't not love this cherry blossom centerpiece by Aunt Peaches. It's made using a real tree branch and coffee filters - details here.

I'm also really digging this magnolia napkin ring by Aunt Peaches. She made it from a paper plate - details here.

Lots of ideas, not a lot of time.  I'll be back early next week to show you how the Willis family Easter table turns out. In the meantime, I hope you have a really great weekend.
