Hey guys! I hope you all had a fabulous Easter! We hosted this year for about 20 people, I decided to keep the place settings casual and just use paper plates and cutlery. I just added centerpieces to each table. Here's what they looked like.
I have been seeing these cute peep centerpieces on Pinterest so I decided to do them to keep it fun. I loved how they turned out so cute!! I bought the vases from the dollar tree along with the egg gum in the bottom and egg picks and then the flowers from Michaels. They were really easy to make. You could do this with fresh flowers too. 

For the main table I took a spring wreath and added a cake plate to the middle and put a bunny from Pier 1 that I got last year and a fleur de lis wire cloche from Hobby Lobby and a chick inside. I scattered around my flower covered eggs. 

 Here's a closer view of the middle.

To each side I added a candle ring and placed a bunny on top.

Here's a look at the other side.

This centerpiece is basically the same as the first one I showed you I just added more flowers and used yellow peeps.

Here's a look at our food right before we ate. We had Turkey, Ham, Mashed potatoes, Green bean casserole, Beans, Deviled eggs, Fruit Salad, Noodles and crackers & Gravy. It was all delicious!! I didn't get a picture of the dessert but we had Dream whip pie, Margarita cupcakes and These cute decorated cupcakes from Sam's. 

I hope you enjoyed the pictures! I will be back soon! Have a great week!!

This is awesome, beautiful but simple. It makes me feel better, because so many settings are elaborate and overwhelming. Yours is simple and do-able. I also love that you used paperware and served buffet style, keepin' it real, girl! On your previous post you have a birdcage that I think it just like one I have. I put grass and eggs in mine this Easter season!

Sooner Laura said...

I love how you pulled this together simple, but elegant. I see so many tablescapes that are gorgeous but just overwhelming and not practical for us busy gals. Thanks for keepin' it real and amazing at the same time! I can relate to doing things this way.
