Spring Green Easter Tablescape

I'm excited to be joining a lovely group of talented ladies in a Spring Tablescape Blog Hop hosted by Chloe at Celebrate & DecorateBe sure to check out all the links at the end of my post where you'll find lots of inspiration for any upcoming spring and Easter tablescapes you may want to create.



Inspiration for my tablescape began with a spring-green coloured tablecloth in my favourite buffalo check pattern.

The other thing you might notice if you follow my blog, is that my dining table is now in the living room. Yep, moving furniture is worth it for a different look!

The stone fireplace makes for a nice backdrop and the fire provides a cozy atmosphere.

Since Easter is right around the corner, my spring tablescape has a fun Easter theme...

...using lots of feathers!

Fair warning - this tablescape idea isn't for those who can't stand to make a bit of a feather-y mess in the process.

I cut up 3 feather boas from the Dollar Store and used them for everything from chair back decor to centerpiece embellishment.

I think the feathers give a soft look to the table which goes perfectly with bunnies and birdies.

I set this cute bunny on top of a faux boxwood wreath sitting on a burlap covered vase. 

A small segment of a feather boa was arranged around the bunny.

The feathers that fell off the boa while cutting it were rounded up and tucked in the bird nests.



This burlap basket was filled with a greenery ball and Easter eggs to create a simple centerpiece.  

Again, a short length of a feather boa was tucked inside.

Candles add a warm glow to the table.

The place settings were done in green and white.

A length of feather boa was cut to fit under the dinner plate atop the woven charger.
 (I think if I do this again, I'd tuck the feathers around the charger so that it is not so close to the plate for food - unless my guests don't mind eating a feather or two!)

Easter treats fill these small glasses as a little favour for guests.

Amber coloured stemware stands ready for filling.

These egg cups were used as candle holders at each place setting.

A bunny tail was created for the backs of the chairs by cutting a chunk of a feather boa, looping it through a ribbon and arranging it into a ball shape.



Now, I have one idea to use for my Easter table this year...

It's always a treat to join you at your table which is oh so cozy moved by the fireplace! Your feathery green and white details are delightful with your nests of bunnies and birds! So clever to use your feather boas for bunny tails to embellish your chair backs too. :)

Rita C. said...

Lori, you always come up with some of the best ideas (those boas! and especially those bunny tails on the chair backs!). The fact that you stay true to your cozy approach makes it all the more inviting - love the fireplace and that buffalo check in spring green. You were mentioning the feathers flying, and my thoughts immediately were focused on those flames next to the feathers - you like living dangerously, I see! Great table, I love it. Hoppy Spring! ;)

Pam Richardson said...

Lori, what a cozy table sitting in front of the fire. The green buffalo check tablecloth sets the spring mood perfectly. The white boas are genius, and I loved how you used them for bunny tails on the chairs! Your table is such a feast for the eyes with all of its detail...love it all and I would not mind a feather or two if I could join you for dinner!

Bonnie said...

Those bunny tails!! Just adorable! I love that you have tried out your table in front of the fireplace. Are you leaving it in that room on a permanent basis? Your table is lovely, I would never have thought to add the feathers, and yet it is such a pretty touch for a Spring table! The green and white are lovely and perfect for Spring! Thank you so much for being a part of the blog hop!
