A few weeks ago I posted a photo of one of my Easter tables from years past on Instagram, saying that I hadn't come up with a plan for this year's table yet. One of my followers said that she'd like to see my take on pastels. My first thought was "I don't do pastels", but the thought stuck in my mind. So, although there is still some punchy color, I guess this is as close as I get to doing pastels!
I browsed the Dollar Spot at Target last week and found a pack of hot pink honeycomb balls (in the $3 section). My sister reminded me that she still had some left from her wedding, and inspiration struck for this year's table. I've been a fan of paper party decorations for Christmas (see here and here), so I thought it would be fun to use them in a tablescape too. My DIY candelabra anchors the center of the table, and I used the honeycomb balls as a makeshift runner. I couldn't resist adding a few mirrored balls in there, too, for a bit of sparkle.
I had planned to use some cute green straw bunnies that I've had for years in the center of each place setting, but when I dug them out some were missing and they were not in great shape. So, I improvised and pulled out a small tub of cotton candy that I was going to give to the kids on Easter (oops) and split it up into small bowls. You can't leave cotton candy out for long, though, or it starts to disintegrate and get hard. #lessonlearned Oh well, my son actually likes it best that way and didn't have any trouble polishing off a bowl full after I finished with the photos.
Lowe's has the small pint containers of geraniums for $1 each this week, so I picked up several and used 4 in each milk glass container flanking the candelabra rather than cut flowers. After Easter I can add them to some of my outdoor pots.
