Easter Chic

I'm not hosting Easter this year, but if I were I would like to think that the table would be a mix of these two looks.

But who am I kidding, I'd be lucky to get a tablecloth down.  I'd also find the time to whip up these glitter confetti Easter eggs (aka caskarones - mini pinatas for your head) to shower over all of my guests for good luck.  Right, I'd get to that too... no problem.

Love both table settings, one natural, one sooo much fun! It will just be the four of us this year, so I have no idea what we are doing. But, sometimes the simple unexpected is best.

Love both pics of the diff table settings! Both are beautiful! I am hosting Easter at my house this year too, and I still have not decided if I am going to cook or if we are going our for brunch! Need to get on that asap!!

Love the first table! Our house is too small to host any holidays but I can't wait for the day when I can!

Ohh love the glitter eggs, wonder if that is too girly to do with Sterling? Also love both tablescapes, but I am always so slack about tablescapes. It usually takes all my efforts just to get the meal ready. I don't have time to decorate too!

This is exactly how I would want my table too! I guess I will have to settle for Mexican decor this year!!!

Those glitter Easter eggs are awesome! Years later, I'm still a sucker for the plastic colored eggs that my parents would fill with chocolate and lotto tickets. I would give anything to have Easter egg hunts with my cousins again.

Exactly my thoughts: "that is a freakin' good idea...glad someone else is doing it!" (c: I'm such a bum sometimes! But if I were to go all out, the glitter would be at the top of my list..

Those glitter eggs might be the most amazing thing i have seen all month-so cool!

I have never really celebrated Easter all that much - but I love the table settings you've picked out. I think I'm more apt to honor this holiday now that I have children and can feel the spring season lifting me out of the winter dumps. Re-emerging and Easter go hand in hand.

Umm I am obsessed with that glitter Easter egg - sooo cute! xoxo

The gold glitter is so pretty. We have a confetti egg smashing tradition in my family. We make up to 700 hundred eggs. No joke! You can only imagine how huge my family is. We just decorated them this past Saturday. Fun stuff.

I love those glittered eggs. I would have the time or patience to make them, but they sure are pretty.

PS: So happy you are coming to Blogfest! I will get to see you soon!

Ahh, glitter confetti easter eggs! LOVE!

Steffi said...

Great minds think alike! Just adhesive-sprayed and glittered a batch of eggs for the SIXTH (eek!) annual Keusch-Hart Easter Brunch for Ex-pats...look for the table pics later next week, after the prosecco hangover subsides ; ) xoxo

Those Easter tables are fab! A co-worker was talking about those confetti eggs and how much her daughter loves them every year. It made me want to get some!
