Tabletop Easter vignette

With Easter coming at the end of this week, I'm a little late by blogging standards in sharing my tabletop Easter vignette, but it seems I'm always a little behind these days. I created this vignette on our sofa table in the entry with things I had on hand or created in the past.
My favorite part is the centerpiece. I love walking by each day and seeing the glitter eggs in the vase. So many pretty colors and the glitter ones really sparkle.

I placed my Bunny Silhouette plate on one side along with a free printable from The Girl Creative. Free printables are always an easy way to change up holiday decor.

The other side displays my crochet egg (made by my mother-in-law) and my hydrangea egg. I also left out a photo we have out most of the year.

Hope you enjoyed viewing my little tabletop Easter vignette. Hope you have a happy and Blessed Easter too.

Casual Easter Tablescape

When I saw these fun chevron striped and polka dot plates in the Target Dollar Spot, I knew immediately I wanted to set up a fun tablescape with them. With Easter coming up, what better time to use them. I've set the back porch table in a fun casual Easter theme that would be perfect for an Easter brunch.

You may have seen many of these items before- the napkins, egg candles and polka dot painted eggs I used as place holders.

While I was getting the plates, I snatched up the fun paper straws from the dollar spot too. I got a pack of each color. I love to mix and match, and here I'm using the pink and green ones in some mason jars.

I used my simple spring arrangement as the centerpiece and a couple of bunny figurines to give it an Easter feel. Take the eggs and bunnies away and you've still got a fun Spring party setting.

Hope you have a fun and blessed Easter. Linking up with Tablescape Thursday and these fun parties:

WIWW- Dressed down

Dress- Belks
jacket- Old Navy
shoes- Target
worn April 6, 2014
I bought this dress last year on clearance. It's really pretty by itself with heels, but I decided to dress it down with a jacket and sandals. I got the inspiration for this from Penny Pincher fashion.
Do you like to dress down nicer items for a casual vibe?

Are you following me on pinterest? I've been breaking down my My Style board into Spring/Summer style and Fall/Winter Style.  Neutral, year round/ work related items will stay on the old board.

How to make a simple spring arrangement

 Post contains affiliate links. These do not cost you any more to click or purchase, but provide me a small income if you do.  
 I saw this bright green decorative watering can in the Target Dollar Spot and knew it would be a darling base for a spring arrangement. I took some supplies I had on hand and whipped up a bright cheery arrangement in a few minutes. I'm going to show you how to do this. (This is so easy, I should be embarrassed to call this a post.)
Here are the supplies you will need:
1. Container for base

2. Floral foam
3. Silk daisies or other bright faux flowers

4. (Not pictured)  cutting tools
 My mom gave me a Floracraft floral foam knife for Christmas and it cuts through foam like butter, and leaves less mess. You will also need some type of wire cutter to cut the stems of your flowers if you purchase them in a bunch.

Cut your foam to fit inside the container. Trim your flowers into individual stems and then starting sticking them in the foam, working around the container to keep the shape and symmetry you like. Keep adding flowers until you have the desired fullness you want.

I'm so happy with my cheery little arrangement. It has become a centerpiece on my porch table.

Thanks for stopping by!

Quick and easy fleece Easter bunny

If you are limited on time, you will love this little Easter craft. Following this tutorial from Gluesticks, I whipped up this little bunny in just a few minutes. I improvised to use what I had on hand. Instead of filling my bunny with beans, I used some quilt batting.

I glued on some googly eyes and a button nose. I think he needs a mouth and a tail, but I skipped those features. My bunny is also not the same dimensions because it ended up being a little shorter after I squared up my fleece scrap.  I have a few more sewn up ready to fill and embellish, so I'm going to try a few things different. I may send one to my 2 year old niece and the eyes and button nose would not be very safe for her.
However, this little crazy-eyed guy will be just fine on display at my house.

Thanks for stopping by.
