PLATES & SILVERWARE
Instead of “Spring-ing” for a new seasonal dish set, use your existing china as a base and purchase a set of small accent plates to add some Holiday flare. I found this 4 pack set of adorable watercolored bunny plates at HomeGoods for only $9.99! I’d also recommend using your existing silverware to save on costs.
Depending on what beverage you are serving, you may need to refresh your drinkware to fit the refreshment…see what I did there ;) I use my crystal for most formal Holiday meals but due to the fact that children will be present at this year’s Easter gathering, I decided to pick up some cut glass goblets at a garage sale for $1 each! This option won’t break the bank…or my heart in the off chance that one of them gets broken on Easter.
These braided placemats were bought on sale from Target feel perfect for Easter since they remind me of the weave in an Easter basket!
Napkins are a fun and easy way to dress up a place setting and are much more affordable to change out each Holiday…especially if they are dish towels! Yup, you read that right, these cuties are dish towels from the Target Dollar Spot! They came in a pack of 2 and I decided to get 3 different colors (Yellow, Pink and Green) to match the accent colors in the bunny plates. I love the color and texture they add and the best party is if I don’t feel like using them on my table again next Easter they can help with washing dishes instead :)
One of the many reasons I love printable party decor is that it is so affordable! These printable place cards help welcome each guest to their seat and can be reused for future Spring celebrations! They are easily editable in Adobe Acrobat and available here!
Gifting is one of my love-languages so some sort of party favor is provided at nearly every single celebration I host. This year I decided to conceal Cadbury Creme Eggs in gold and pastel plastic Easter Eggs placed on egg stands at each place setting! The pastel egg stands were another Target Dollar Spot find a few years ago.
Instead of pricey floral centerpieces, I added a faux Tulip at each place setting to tie into the Tulip graphics on the surrounding printable decorations. These were also found in this year’s Target Dollar Spot.
A wooden wheelbarrow filled with little Jute Carrots from Dollar Tree, decorative speckled eggs from the Target Seasonal Aisle mixed with a few unfinished wooden eggs from Target Dollar Spot serve as my centerpiece focal point.
Another fun quality about printables is that there are many different ways to use them. This “Happy Easter” sign is actually a framed "Cake Topper” from our Easter Cupcake Topper Set.
Growing up my mother included candlesticks on the dining table at every mealtime so i’ve carried on the tradition and love the ambiance it adds. HomeGoods is a wonderful place to score affordable, high-quality candlesticks that won’t drip!
On either side of the wheelbarrow I placed little ceramic bunnies anchored in small Spring wreaths, all from…surprise, the Target Dollar Spot! I also gave each bunny a little Jute Carrot from Dollar Tree to help tie them into the wheelbarrow centerpiece.
I love finding unexpected ways to use items into decor! These cupcake stands double as the perfect display for a few Easter Eggs and egg-shaped jewels (which are actually festive clip-on earrings).
You can’t go wrong with lace for Spring! This table runner was bought on sale at Hobby Lobby last Spring. As a tip, take advantage of post-holiday sales where you can score fun new discounted items to use the following year. It feels like Christmas every time I unpack my seasonal decor since there’s always something new tucked away that i’ve forgotten about!
I’m a huge fan of printable banners since there’s a variety of ways to use them throughout your home. These Tulip and Bunny flags are the perfect accent hanging from my chandelier over my Easter dining table! They’re part of a printable banner set that also comes with banner flags A-Z, 0-9, nd, st, rd and th, which is available here.
