Easter Egg Painting

This tablescape is for a luncheon before an egg painting party. Inspiration for this came from the cute little painting cans I found at Hobby Lobby this year. They were only $5.99 each and 40% off. They make such a cute centerpiece. These are all I bought for this tablescape, since I'm painting again I have lots of paint  brushes! My love for oil painting was inspiration for buying the little paint buckets!

Here are the individual mini paint cans:

 I added the little bunny who is also holding a paint brush!

And an Easter basket full of eggs and brushes.

A pink tablecloth is a nice background.

Each place setting has a basket weave place mat, a white plate, pastel napkins held with a different ceramic bunny napkin ring, and a paint brush! Yellow handled flatware at each place setting.

Such a cute and happy Easter tablescape!

Cuisine Kathleen's St. Pat Blog Crawl

Time to join Cuisine Kathleen's annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl!  Inspiration for this tablescape started with this darling little wheelbarrow I found at Hobby Lobby recently.

 I used the wheelbarrow and my Irish dancer figurines for the centerpiece.

The wheelbarrow is filled with silk shamrocks

I doubled green napkins with white and used pony tail ties for the napkin rings.

The white plates are from Dollar Tree and the green chargers from Target, years ago.

The "crystal" glasses are also from Dollar Tree a few years ago

The wheelbarrow is the only thing I bought new. I also used it filled with red roses for Valentine's Day.

 Next month it will be filled with spring flowers!

Other St. Pat's Day decor in the house:

 Decor in the dining room before I did the tablescape:

Then I used most of it for the tablescape!

Yellow roses from my husband! Thanks, Joe!

I made a Shutterfly album of my St. Pat's Day decor over the last years, if you would like to see it send me your emal addy and I will send it to you. I tried to add the url here, but it did not work. It is on my Facebook page too.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!



The Reason for the Season

 This last Christmas tablescape features The Holy Family. The Reason for the Season. Sometimes we get so caught up in the busyness of the holidays and we forget what the holiday is for. Jesus came to earth as our Saviour! Praise God for sending His Son!  

I collect Nativities and this white one is one of my favorites. I think it came from Hobby Lobby years ago.
I have done several tablescapes with the white Nativity, one was done in all white. I have used it on a burgundy tablecloth, a lace tablecloth, and now a green tablecloth.

The dishes came from Cracker Barrel a few years ago.

Each plate has a different word.

The dessert plate has a pretty holly design on it, and the smaller plates repeat the special word.

My new Christmas plaid napkins are used again, this time with a sheer white napkin and pearl napkin rings.
I love these napkins and have enjoyed using them with the last three tablescapes!
The flatware is clear plastic handles

The Centerpiece

White silk poinsettias flank the Holy Family creating a beautiful centerpiece

A place just for you. Do you want Peace? Love? Joy? Hope?

Susan's Tablescape Thursday will be up early for us to post to. Click on her name for more inspiration.

Praying you will have a very Blessed Christmas celebrating our Lord Jesus' birthday.
