Can you believe Easter is just 10 days away?!? Seems like Valentine’s Day was just yesterday! Just talked to mom today about the Easter meal, and it’s going to be deeee-licious! My mother always puts together a beautiful table scape for family dinners and holiday meals. I am blessed to have grown up with a mom who truly understands the value of being the heart of her home, and lives with excellence when entertaining in her home.
Even though I won’t be putting together my own Easter table this year, I’ve still been considering some new and fun ways to make the table beautiful for the next time we entertain guests for dinner. I came up with a couple of awesome ideas that are super inexpensive and easy-peasy to put together.
First, I purchased some “napkins” (they’re really just plain white handkerchiefs, similar to what I used for the Easter dish towels I told you about last week). They were just $0.99 a piece… score! Did you know that if you use permanent marker on fabric and then stick it in the dryer for 30 minutes or so on low that it will keep the marker from washing out (wash on gentle cycle, gentle soap, cold water)? Well, it’s true! That’s what I did for these Easter napkins.
Then, as I was walking through my favorite Dollar Tree looking for something to transform into a napkin ring, I came across these baby teething rings and immediately had vision for and Easter-y napkin ring project.
I grabbed my silver metallic spray paint and got to spraying. I sprayed one side first, let it dry, then flipped them over to spray the other side. Also, I sprayed them first in a horizontal motion and then in a vertical motion so as to cover every nook and cranny.
After they dried completely, I got some faux flowers that I purchased from the Dollar Tree and pulled the flower heads from the stem.
I got out my weapon of choice, my glue gun, and glued the flowers to the rings. So simple, and they look so pretty for spring!
