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!

farmhouse, Spring, easter, faux tulips, candles

I started with a roll of
kraft colored wrapping paper
with white polka dots.

whtie plates, candles, stemmed glasses, silverware, menu, Easter dinner

Then I added all sorts of fun stuff!!

easter, table, stained table, easter menu, faux tulips, faux eggs

I mixed a bunch of different things:
faux eggs,
repurposed candle holders,
and paper stamping.

vintage lamp pieces, vintage metal

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.

repurposed candle holder, white candles

I used a few of them to make candle holders.

repurposed candle holder, white candle

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*.

paper place card, letter stamps

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*.

I love all of the different metals together!

vintage hinge, Easter dinner, Easter menu, menu holder

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.

wooden eggs, pom pom chicks

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

farmhouse shelving unit, Spring, Wheat Grass

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

flower pots, painted pots, carrots, white eggs, chalkboard eggs

This is the perfect place to display ceramic bunnies.
Don't ya love that big one with her 3 babies?
That's just like me!!  

I painted a variety of clay pots* (DIY instructions here).
I 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?
