Learn how you can create a fun and beautiful Easter table for your kids without spending a fortune!
Thanks for stopping by today friends!
Have I ever told you that I absolutely love creating tablescapes? Around here we keep things pretty simple at the table, and to be honest on most nights you’ll find plastic plates, sippy cups, a ketchup bottle and lots of paper napkins.
But once in a while, it’s so much fun to create something beautiful just for the sake of creating something beautiful. You can find my recent Spring Tablescape here if you’re looking for more inspiration!
I truly believe that God gave me the desire to create and it’s so much fun when you start to see that same creativity in your children!
Thrifty Easter Tablescape Inspiration
Both of my boys love to help me in the kitchen, and recently they asked if we could make some cookies. We decided on sugar cookies, and with Easter approaching we chose egg cookie cutters for the shapes.
Gabriel used way more blue flood coloring than I had envisioned, and Ethan went a little overboard with the sprinkles. But we had fun and they were so excited when we finished decorating them.
Thrifty Easter Tablescape Components
Then, the idea hit me. Why not create a fun Easter tablescape for the kids? I began looking around my home for items I could use, and I remembered the most darling bunny plate that I had stored away, waiting to be used. I found it at a thrift store for a couple of bucks, and I just couldn’t leave it there! The bunnies were just too precious!!
The thrifted bunny plate became the centerpiece, and as I gathered other items, I realized that everything on my table was purchased second hand. The napkins (new from Target) were purchased at Goodwill, and I had so much fun turning them into little bunny ears for the kids using thrifted napkin rings.
I used some of my Pfaltzgraff bowls that I’ve shared with you before over on Instagram (saved in my highlights), and I created some nests using thrifted craft raffia to lay our egg cookies in. Always check the craft section at thrift stores, you never know what materials you’ll find!
The little glass jars were spice bottles with corks, I simply washed them out and removed the labels and they became perfect vessels for some faux thrift store chamomile.
One of my favorite parts about this little table are the drinking glasses. They weren’t actually thrifted, but a sweet friend gave them to me because they came from an old dairy farm just a few miles away. She thought I would appreciate them and she was so right. I love using them whenever I can!
So there you have it! Every single thing on this table was either purchased second hand, or free. We created a beautiful tablescape for probably less than ten dollars.
I will never stop saying it – you don’t have to have a lot of money to create beauty. Sometimes beauty is found in the most simple things.
