How I used a sheet to set the Easter Table!

April 9, 2012

Really I did..... in fact I re purposed just about everything on the Easter table this year.
It started a few days before our Easter Brunch when I found out that my sister did not have a cake plate , so I headed out to thrift  and picked up some needed table supplies, including an anthropology Noble Sneed candle holder and plate to make my sister this cake plate. Details here.
Then it turned to vases to put flowers in. In my quest for the cake plate supplies, I also picked up a few milk bottle jars. The jars and some old reed diffusers were perfect to put some pretty cut blooms in.
I decided that white was the theme for the table so I pulled a white king size sheet out of the linen closet to use as a table cloth. Sorry for the wrinkles, no time to iron!! 
I used a variety of beautiful white flowers from her garden to put in the vases and scattered them throughout the table
I took a birdcage from the den to use as the centerpiece because of it's color and size.
 Not to bad for a totally "use what you got" tablescape.
Brunch is served!

  10. I absolutely LOVE it all! That cake plate is beautiful. I would have never thought to do such....but I will now :)

  11. I hope you all enjoyed the day...I have a sheet over my kitchen table (that may or may not be a card table) right now. :)

  12. Sheets have been universal savers for lots of occasions. Smart of you to think of it. They're alot easier to wash, arrange, put away than anything I can think of, plus they cover alot more than a tablecloth ever would.
    Do you think she'd notice if I "borrowed" that incredible bird cage and substituted a cake plate? I have 3 cake stands, (vintage) but no bird cage like that. Ah well, it was just a thought (and a hope). teehee Have great days.

  13. You found just the right items to create a lovely Easter table!
