A Yellow and Green Easter
|Some of the easter decor from around the house.|
|Mini Daffodils from the store, covered in mounds of moss.|
|I mounded various kinds of found moss on silver platters.|
|I dyed eggs & while they were still wet, rolled them in coffee grounds for a more natural look.|
Let the eggs dry, then brush off the grounds. Repeat as necessary for desired look.
|Yellow and Green eggs nestled into the moss, made a fun centerpiece.|
Add mini Daffodils for a complete Easter vignette!
|The moss on silver platters are back! This time with robin's egg blue shells broken on the top and filled with water and little blue & white flowers. Other various blue eggs are nestled in, including chocolate eggs.|
|Pull out any matching china you have. Here is some on tray at our coffee station.|
|The buffet had a centerpiece of brown and blue eggs and candles wrapped in blue ribbon & twine.|
|I used white and brown eggs and blew-out the insides before dying.|
|The dessert table and fun blue polka-dot napkins.|
|Another glimpse of the centerpieces. Notice the blue egg on the table in the upper left corner? |
Those were real egg shells that I dyed and filled with chocolate and ganache.
|(Find the recipe here. Thank you Martha Stewart!) |
They made fun deserts for everyone to un-peel like a real egg!
|For this Easter, I Modge Podged old book pages onto plastic eggs & mixed in with white and pink dyed eggs.|
|Here they are on my kitchen shelf.|
|Kitchen shelves decorated for easter with old Fiestware and silver.|
|The centerpieces were pink, white & book page eggs hanging from branches. (I hot glued little loops of twine on each egg.)|
|Here is the centerpiece in the Dining Room. I used some antique pink & white linens I had under each centerpiece.|
|Dessert plates stacked in the corner wait for their debut.|
|Stacks of china for the adults and less precious plates for the little ones.|
|Save on dishwashing! Use paper cups to make beverages easy - you can use for hot or cold drinks and |
write your name on them. Use plastic silverware rolled up in napkins & tied with twine to make the buffet line quick too.
|Plenty of outdoor seating as weather permits - overlooking a fun game of croquet in the back yard. |
Tables are dressed up with white linens and topped with pots of pink primroses.
|Kids table topped with white butcher paper, playdoh & coloring crayons.|
|He is risen indeed!|
