Easter Table Ideas

Thanks so much for taking my survey.  I’m learning some interesting things about you all.  You can still take it if you’d like.  Just click here.

Easter is fast approaching! FAST!  I bought some new Easter decor at Roberts in Orem last July and dang it, I need to get it out. 

With that said, you all may be looking for some Easter ideas too.  I received an email from this bloggers husband.  HUSBAND!  He wrote to tell me about his wife’s blog and that she has 30+ projects she created herself.  HER HUSBAND!  I just think that is the sweetest thing ever.  Now if she really wrote it and only made it seem like it was her husband…….I don’t want to know.  My world of thinking her husband loves her and her hobby that much is a much brighter place…..know what I mean?  image

Actually, Creative Stirrings was the idea of her husband.  He thinks his wife is the most creative person ever and suggested she start a blog.  I love that.   He’s dubbed The Other Half and will chime in on her blog from time to time.

She’s got lots of table ideas, but lets look at Easter first. 

Starting with this cute table runner……..Darling way to make little chicks!imageThis looks like a kids or extra table.  Would you look at that bow on the side?  imageThis is an Easter table from a few years ago.  This is not expensive….this is not something that requires a special supplies……..just a great vision of course.  You gotta have an eye for sure……..but this is so cute and simple.  My favorite kind.imageBut wait a minute…….she got my hopes up for a simple display that looks like a million bucks…..then she springs (no pun intended) this fancy bunny napkin fold.    Now she’s playing dirty……  :)image

While visiting her site, I realized she loves to have little dinner parties.  She has many tablescape ideas.

This below is from her mothers birthday. But she named it “Happy Bird-day”. Darling.  You could even change the colors and use this idea for Easter.imageFor her husbands birthday, at least that’s what I think she said……she was a bit more playful.    I LOVE the cake…….well I like the way it’s decorated too.  :)

Seriously, she has the best ideas that leave you with the DUH feeling.  I love them. Something I could do, I have most the items she uses…….simple.  imageNothing fancy to buy to create this creative party.  Did I already say I loved that?image    I thought this was darling too.  Yea, I know I say darling a lot……get over it.   This is a ……..you guessed it…….a Mickey Mouse Party! image Look at the plates….look at the little mickey heads made with finger prints.  You know what I think is the best thing ever?  There is not ONE registered trademarked Disney item on the table.  Once again, this did not require you to run to the store and buy a bunch of stuff you’ll never use again.  You know what else I love?  She’s using paper plates and cups……..but made it look fancy!  My girlfriend Val is going to be all over this. She is a table maniac. image OK, now she’s just showing off.  She had an Aztec Party for educational purposes.  But if it makes you feel any better, she used paper products again. Before you think that would be too ordinary…..look how she transformed them.  Feathers on a cup?  See……showoff!image Of course a Mexican food theme to go along.  She actually has LOTS of recipes on her site.image And a few crafts too……….Laurie from Tip Junkie would be ALL over this head band.  She’s from Texas and LOVES those big flower headbands.imageSo no more sweating over the Easter table.  Head over to her blog and pick up all kinds of ideas.  Leave a comment for her husband while you’re there.
