I’m sending Happy Easter wishes your way with an alfresco Easter table!
A bunny tablecloth provides a foundation for Bunny eggs plates, layered over aqua and salmon colored napkins.
For an easy centerpiece, I filled a glass vase with jelly beans that look like speckled eggs. To make your own, center a smaller vase inside a larger vase and place your jelly beans or candy of your choice between the walls of your vases. Easter candy is already on sale or stock up at the dollar store to fill your vase. I saved my candy from last year’s centerpiece with tulips to use again this year.
I cut some dogwood branches and plum tree blossoms for the centerpiece.
A few colored eggs are tucked in among the branches and around the base of the centerpiece.
Crack your eggs along the top of the smaller end and save your shells to use as vases at the table. Azaleas and plum blossoms fill egg shell vases in floral egg cups at the table. . .
And bunny straws make for festive sipping, hopping in my cart from the Dollar Spot at Target, and adding a little whimsy, paired with my mother-in-law’s delicate crystal flutes.
Baby Bunny Cakelets are sweet mini desserts for Easter! Divide your batter in half and add some cocoa powder for mini chocolate and vanilla bunny cakes. Some sprinkled coconut on a dollop of frosting provides a cottontail! Recipe, here.
It’s going to be a beautiful Easter weekend here in North Carolina, with temperatures in the 80’s. Hope you’re enjoying some spring blooms and beautiful weather where you are!
