A couple of weekends ago we hosted an after-church tea party for the little girls in Annie’s Sunday School class. I had fun dressing up our table.
Yes, we used real china and silver…totally worth it. No, I didn’t iron any of the linens.
This table runner is actually a tablecloth I found at Target. I folded into thirds and poof! instant runner.
This was my favorite part…little yellow peeps in baskets with paper grass. Aren’t they sweet?! And never underestimate the power of seasonal m&m’s in tiny bowls. Pretty and delicious.
There were also a few little sisters who came along to the party, so I set up a toddler table. The plastic easter plates are from Target several years ago. Any guesses on how long the edible centerpiece lasted?
If you haven’t already, there’s still time to dye Easter eggs and make your house or table look festive! A few of you have asked exactly what I meant when I said I use my Easter eggs as decor around the house. So glad you asked…
The simplest way is to group them in small basket.
This egg holder works well as a centerpiece or on your kitchen counter. I found it last year at Target.
In a few years I hope to actually be able to put these decoration on, say, my coffee table where they can be seen and enjoyed. But for now, the reality of living with a toddler dictates that any container holding real eggs is placed on the one out-of-reach countertop in our entire house. It looks crowded and everything is in one place and it kind of drives me a little nuts, but it won’t be like this forever. So, yes, these photos were totally staged. Just keeping it real.
Have a lovely Easter…
