Rustic Chic Easter

Some easy decorating tips: Use what you have! Whether you believe you are a decorator or not, there are things in your home that are perfect for an Easter tabletop; they are just waiting to be pulled out of the cupboards and displayed for all to see.

It's my personal opinion that when combining natural items (such as leaves and birch logs) with classy, stylish pieces (similar to the pink glass bubble candle holders), one creates a tabletop that squeals personality and beauty.

If you don't own "natural" items, I know a great place where you can find some... right outside your front door! Grab a handful of leaves, twigs, or rocks, add a few fresh flowers, pair them with some chic candle sticks and you are on your way to a great Easter tabletop.

If you are feeling especially fancy, add a sweet little whimsy bird. I personally would love to add these salt & pepper shakers to our Easter tabletop. Birds always bring a happy element to the table.

To bring some additional daintiness and color to the table, add some classic pastel Easter egg cups. How cute are these? Oh, I could find so many things to do with these little guys during the rest of the year.

Last but not least, be yourself! Just because your tabletop doesn't look like your neighbors, doesn't mean it's not completely darling and unique. So, step out on a limb, decorate your table for Easter, and while you’re at it, include some fun organic stuff. Happy decorating!
