While going through all my things that were packed away in the basement, I found my collection of green depression glass and that was the starting point for this table. I knew I wanted it to be fun and festive. What’s more fun than polka dots? I added metallic gold faux eggs for a festive touch. Here’s how I created the tablescape.
The eggs and urn were spray painted with the blogger’s BFF, spray paint. The china, with a golden ring around the edge and the golden chargers are all part of a set I got at Sam’s Club a long time ago.
I used metallic paint and a foam pouncer brush to make the dots on an old tablecloth. It was a quick and easy little project. The trick is having just the right amount of paint on the brush, but it’s pretty forgiving and you can go back over it if there’s not enough paint.
Coffee cups, lined up down the center of the table, hold the golden eggs in a little nest of green moss. I think the flowers look fake but they’re real grocery store flowers. Lately I can’t resist grocery store bouquets.
The depression glass adds a bit of green color. The turquoise napkins are from TJmaxx and the patterned bowls are from Big Lots.
I think the polka dots are so cute! An unexpected touch of whimsy!
Mottled green eggs in a napkin nest are nestled in the bowls.
I rolled up the napkins diagonally and tucked them in the bowls. Then fluffed them up a little bit to create the nests.
Have a very Happy Easter.
