Egg-cellent Easter Tables

This week has been a bit hectic, so today I’m posting an oldie but a goodie! Enjoy!

Yep. I went there. And you know what? I’m not even ashamed of that one! You know what else? I don’t even really like eggs that much (scrambled is okay but never hard boiled). I do, however, like dying them for Easter and decorating my house with them like I suddenly live in a chicken coop.

I was looking online the other day for inspiration on how to use my brightly colored and be-glittered eggs on my Easter table and came across some pretty amazing ideas, some of which actually include eggs. My dining room table is neither big enough nor grand enough to accommodate most of these decorations (seriously, where does the food go? over-the-top doesn’t even begin to describe them), but I have to say, I rather like the one with the egg cups and the Peeps—no eggs, but cute nonetheless!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Pinterest!

After we had our downstairs painted this summer, we put up floating shelves in our dining room, which means that this Christmas, I had two new spaces to decorate with holiday cheer! So naturally, I hopped on Pinterest to see what DIY hijinks I could get up to.

Voilà, the finished product!

For my first attempt decorating a mantle-type thing for Christmas (we don’t have a fireplace), I thought it turned out pretty good. I framed last year’s Christmas pictures of Olivia for an extra festive touch.

The centerpiece on the table is made of fraser fir Christmas tree clippings. Oh, and Christmas tree clippings are FREE at Home Depot. Woot woot!

The white tree on the top shelf is made of a styrofoam cone, white felt, and straight pins. I got the idea for this DIY project from this post from Scissor Variations.

The jar of Christmas tree clippings on the bottom shelf is a mason jar painted white on the inside. Just pour in acrylic craft paint, swirl it around to coat the entire inside, and let it dry. So easy!

Have you done any DIY decorating? I would love to see how you decorated for Christmas! Post your pics on our Facebook page!
