Hi, I’m Haeley from Design Improvised and I’m excited to share some Easter decorating ideas on Style Spotters today! At Design Improvised, I’m always on the look out for easy home décor and entertaining projects that can make a big impact for minimal time and money invested. At the holidays, I particularly love creating a special table for our meal using inexpensive materials and everyday items. Easter is on my mind already and when I saw this table setting in a unique pale blue and pink color scheme, I fell in love. I decided to put my own twist on it for our upcoming Easter brunch!

For my table, I found some pretty ric rac, pom-pom fringe, and ribbon in the same blue and pink color palette and made them the stars of this simple tablescape.

 

 

These pretty notions just remind me of spring and Easter eggs! I used them to dress up some plain cloth napkins, make an inexpensive table runner, and embellish dyed eggs to use as place cards.

 

 

For the napkins, I just added a row of ric rac and pom-pom fringe to one edge of an inexpensive set of white cloth napkins. Affix them with fabric glue and/or run a stitch through them with the sewing machine.

 

One of my favorite tricks for a super quick and inexpensive table runner is to roll some sturdy wrapping or kraft paper down the middle of the table. For my Easter runner, I added a few rows of ribbon, securing them with double-sided tape every few inches. That way I can reuse the ribbons after the brunch (always save your ribbon scraps!) and just throw the kraft paper away. You could easily make a more permanent version of this by sewing the ribbons onto a plain cloth table runner.

 

 

For the egg place cards, I added a band of ric rac to pink dyed eggs with a little hot glue, and then wrote each person’s name with a metallic Sharpie!

 

 

It couldn’t get much easier and the only thing I had to purchase for the tablescape was a few rolls of ribbon – talk about my kind of project!

 

Have a happy holiday!
