Easter Table Setting with repurposed metal

Do you have your Easter menu planned?  We pretty much have the same thing year after year.  I think my family would be disappointed if I didn't make all of the things they've become accustomed to!

What does change every year is our Easter Table Setting.  This year I used many vintage items and I'm in love with it!

To decorate my Dining Room table, I started with a roll of kraft colored wrapping paper with white polka dots.

Then I added all sorts of fun stuff!!  I mixed a bunch of different things:
  • faux flowers
  • faux eggs
  • repurposed candle holders
  • candles
  • paper stamping

Last time I was at the flea market, I picked up a bunch of random vintage metal goodness! I think they were old lamp pieces and light fixtures.

I used a few of them to make candle holders.

I used hot glue to marry the pieces temporarily.  I'll probably take them apart and use them for something else.  If I wanted a permanent hold, I'd use E6000.

This piece from an old lamp makes a perfect stand for a jar of white eggs, green grass and fairy lights.




At each place setting I used a place card on a vintage hinge, a linen napkin, our silverware-tied with a ribbon, and our everyday white plates, on top of a wicker charger.

The place marker paper is from an old cookbook.  I used rubber stamps (smaller similar set here) to
spell out each name and a chocolate Easter bunny.  A vintage hinge is holding the placecard.




Each setting also has a stemmed glass with a little baggie of (the best) Starburst jelly beans.

All of the different metals look so good mixed and matched together!

I stamped our Easter Dinner menu on the same cookbook paper as the place cards.

The menu holder is a large beat up hinge that is rusted closed.  Luckily it's frozen with just enough room to stick a paper inside.  I hot glued the hinge to the remnant of an old yardstick.




I just love the  wooden eggs and the pom pom chickies!!  Such a charming addition to our Easter Table!

Our shelving unit is right beside our table.  I couldn't help but add a few Easter touches there as well!

I painted a variety of clay pots (DIY instructions here) and planted wheat grass in a large one.

 I stacked a bunch of different sized pots in a basket with white plastic and chalkboard eggs.  The bottom shelf displays my Easter Bunny shadow box.

I think we are ready for our Easter meal!  Do you have a traditional meal for Easter?
