Simple Sunday ~ Easy Easter Cloche

Welcome to Simple Sunday.  I am so glad you joined me today

Today I’m putting together an easy Easter cloche and vignette in the foyer.

First, I gathered a few things to use in my Easter cloche – three cover-less books, cute bunny, vintage Easter postcard, small green flower frog, a bird nest, and some pastel Easter eggs.  Before I began putting the cloche together I placed a twig runner over the chest.

I picked a vintage Easter postcard to include in the cloche held by a little green flower frog.

I sat a little pot of daisies on Easter egg plates beside the cloche

to complete the Easter vignette in the foyer.

The cloche and vignette came together very quickly.

Thank you for joining me today.

Simple Sunday

Welcome back to another edition of Simple Sunday.

 Today I’m going to show you how I put together a quick and easy Easter centerpiece.

Here are the items I am using.  Two little green moss-covered rabbits I picked up while in Florida last month, a bunch of three carrots from Target’s Bullseye’s Playground,  three faux plants (Ikea), three clay pots, two small Daisy plants (Ikea), and a breadboard to pull it all together.

First, I situated the three clay pots on the breadboard.

Then, I added an Ikea plant to each clay pot.

To make room for a carrot in each pot it scooted the leaves around so the carrots fit into the pots.

Next, I added the little moss-covered rabbits.

Then, I added the daisies but I didn’t like the little black pots they came in.  So I added a burlap wrap and tied it with some twine.

So simple and so cute.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Happy Birthday to my youngest today!!

Simple Sunday

Welcome to Simple Sunday.

I’ve wanted to create a Fairy Garden for a couple of years.  So when Dollar Tree had most of the Fairy Garden supplies I needed it was a sign that the time was right.  My Dollar Tree didn’t have all the pieces I wanted including a fairy, so a trip to a larger Dollar Tree near me is in order.  Today is just a miniature preview.

A white pedestal from my stash serves as a base.  I covered it with moss.

My granddaughter picked out this house.  We actually bought two houses.

A path made of white rocks leads to the Fairy house front door.

A sweet little bench is a perfect place for a Fairy to rest.

The gnomes are on guard until the Fairy comes home.

 Gnomes are protectors

and good luck charms.

Thanks for joining me today!  Coming soon a Fairy Garden Village.

A Vintage Inspired Easter Tablescape

This tablescape started with the Easter centerpiece I made using vintage finds.  So I wanted to continue in the vintage theme.

Easter Tablescape Title

The dishes I chose are ones I’ve collected piecemeal from flea markets, antique and thrift stores.  They are Johnson Brothers Regency Ironstone.   Produced from 1960 until 2003.   Some of the pieces I have are old and some are newer.  

Place Card

The monogrammed napkin rings I used were a thrift store find a while back.  The place cards are actually gift tags from Target’s Bullseye’s Playground.  There three metal tags in a package for a dollar.  I wrote on them with a sharpie but any marker would do.  I tied them to the napkin rings with narrow pink ribbon.

Place Setting 2

The nest theme from the centerpiece continued to the place settings with some green shreds and Cadbury mini chocolate eggs in a berry bowl.

How I Made an Easter Centerpiece with Vintage Finds

Do you remember when I found eight jello molds in FTT Week 73 Vintage Finds.  I mentioned that I already had a plan for them.

Easter Centerpiece title

That plan was for a simple Easter table centerpiece made with vintage finds. 

Matelasse Table Runner

I started with a beautiful white table runner made from matelasse and white lace.

Jello Molds

The jello molds were ready to do their duty.

Jello Cup w Easter Eggs

So I filled them with Spanish moss and placed five small Easter eggs in each mold.

3 Jello Molds

With the vintage baguette board centered on the table runner I placed the eight filled jello molds on the board.

Middle Nest

 Once I had all the jello molds in place it needed a center focal point and one more jello mold did not do the trick.

Rabbit Mold

I remembered my rabbit mold from TTT Week 28 Vintage Finds and decided he would be perfect.

Bunny in the Middle

So on the nest of Spanish moss he sits.

Easter Centerpiece

He was just the right thing for a focal point.

Back side of Easter Centerpiece

Here we are looking at the centerpiece toward the foyer and front door.  Be sure to come back to see my complete Easter Tablescape.

Are you as ready for Spring as I am?

Jumpstart Spring title

Even though it is cloudy and misty today, I’m doing a couple of quick Spring vignettes to get out of the doldrums and to share with you.  Everything just looks so bare with all the Valentine decorations put away.  

Easter Post Card 1

First, I went through my vintage postcards to find some for Spring and Easter.  This white, green, and silver Easter postcard inspired a whole vignette.

White VIgnette

Since I wanted to keep the same colors I put a preserved white hydrangea in an ivory colored urn and placed it on top of couple of white books.  One of the books even has a green binding.  A silver flower frog is holding the postcard so the last element I added was a white distressed bunny that was a Target Dollar Spot find.

Easter Post Card on book

This pretty German postcard translates to “warm Easter greetings”.   

Jadeite Vignette

In the dining room I put together a small Jadeite and rose vignette.  

If these three vignettes haven’t inspired you, check out these posts from past years for more inspiration.

Blue Willow House Tea Cup

Planting Succulents in Teacups helps prepare me to work in the garden and plant flowers outside.

St. Patrick's Day Mantel 2

Even though I was going to skip decorating for St. Patrick’s day this year, my 2015 St. Patrick’s Day Mantel is nagging at me to decorate at least a little bit for the Irish in me.

Easter Vignette

If you are skipping St. Patrick’s day and moving on to Easter A Thrifted Easter Vignette might get your creative juices flowing.  It even includes my 2015 Easter mantel.
