a playful easter tabletop…

If you have kids or are just looking for something simple and fun to do for your Easter tabletop, here are some quick, easy ideas for a cute tabletop design, utilizing a few inexpensive elements that can double as gifts and treats for your loved ones…

a playful easter tabletop…These adorable little stuffed bunnies (purchased in-store at Hallmark for $8 each) were the inspiration for this tabletop and immediately give it a playful feel. To give the table height and help the bunnies sit upright, set them on top of little pails (available at Michael’s for $1 each). The pails were embellished with fabric ribbon and cute little self-adhesive chick decals from The Container Store, which were also affixed to green ribbon to create coordinating napkin rings. Colored eggs in white ceramic egg cups are an easy, fitting decorative accent. (Egg cups from at IKEA for $1 each.) The lime “table runner” is actually a folded twin sheet and could also be used as a full tablecloth!

The contemporary wire flower placecard holders pictured here are available at weddingfavorites.com for $2.50 each. Purple, yellow, and lime flowers make for a beautiful “springy” arrangement. For the tabletop, a couple stems of gerberas and tulips in a glass vase is all you need to make a refreshingly simplistic statement.

Such cute ideas. I saw Kelly Moore speak recently and loved her ideas for table settings–especially giving everyone something uniquely theirs. One of her ideas was from a Kentucky Derby party–every guest had their “own horse” with details about them on their place setting. The items game from an old board game.

Your table design is amazing. And I am so impressed at how Peeps are being used as decoration more this year. The marketing department over at the Peep manufacturer sure has been working overtime. This month’s issue of Parent magazine has a cute way to use peeps for a spring time desert as well.
