A Simple Colorful Easter on Pearl Street

I am dreaming of spring, how about you?  Indiana always has such crazy weather during February and March.  We have been known to experience multiple seasons all in one day, seriously.  The last few days it has snowed and all melted within an hour.  Until just a few days ago I still had my winter decor out, but Easter is only a couple of weeks away so it was time to get my booty in gear and change up my seasonal decor.

I decided to name this post A Simple Colorful Easter.  I love color and my design style has evolved into and eclectic mix of things I love.  Not sure what your design style is?  You can take my Design Style Quiz and be on your way to creating a home you love too.

Once I had settled on the name I realized I didn’t have any colorful dishes.  All I had was the china we have started using for big family gatherings and it didn’t fit the bill.  Stick with me and I will tell you how I fixed that little problem on a very small budget.  And I have a freebie for you just for reading to the end.

I am joining a wonderful and talented group of bloggers today to bring you this Easter Blog Hop, so please visit the other posts at the end for more fabulous Easter inspiration.

First things first, I had to find some colorful dishes.  So I went to Dollar Tree.  Everything there is $1 and did you know they have dishes?  Heavy ceramic dishes.  Their selection can vary from one day to the next, but the ones I got were Rachel Ray.  Orange and green, I would say that is colorful enough.

So I layered them, added silverware bound with these cute little carrots that I made, and set them out on the table.  Look at the cute little chick!  I picked those up at Big Lots,

This toolbox is my favorite garage sale find.  It has lived all over the house and my hubby got me the amazing milk bottles.  They fit perfectly in the toolbox and make great vases.  I have decided to embrace simpler table decor this year.   Less is more.

Of course no Easter would be complete without a bunny.  I love this ceramic bunny, and he loves tulips.  He is hanging out on the coffee table this year in the family room.  Oh, and those tulips, they are faux tulips.  Really, they are.  They are the most real looking faux tulips I have ever seen.  My hubby thought they were real too.

  1. Susanne I am loving that garage sale box you found. It is perfect for your tablescape. Can’t wait to find out all your tips for the colorful dish ware I will check back in soon for the post release 🙂

  2. Oh, I love the carrot place cards! Those tulips look real! The dishes, I never would have thought they would have such awesome colors. I am going shopping today!

    1. The tulips are the most amazing faux flowers I have ever found, the feel so real! Happy shopping 🙂

  3. Susanne, LOVE the colorful decor! Nothing says spring like a good pop of color! Also, that toolbox! This has given me inspiration for my day! I have one just like that sitting in the project pile, that my grandpa made me when I was young, so it’s extra special! It’s unfinished and I haven’t been able to decide what to do with it. Now I know! Thank you so much! 😀

  4. Susanne, I love the carrots attached to the cutlery idea – such fun! And I also love that toolbox, in fact, it’s a funny coincidence that my daughter went to an open technical family day at a local company and actually made one that looks very similar. I have been trying to convince her to give it to me but she is digging her heels in and wants to keep it for herself.

    1. I don’t blame her for not wanting to give it up, they are such a cool decor piece!! Maybe you could get her to make you one 🙂

  5. How cute and colorful. Love the carrot Happy Easter place cards (so much so that i pinned it). Happy Spring!
