Come on in! Our Blue Cottage is all decorated for Easter. Happy spring — we finally made it!

The most work went into my easy Easter tablescape.

I really enjoy shopping for new items and getting ideas at different decorating stores. While browsing, I think of the items I already have at home and how they would work with a few new things.

And you know me, I usually try to pull it off on a budget — that’s part of the fun for me.

For this Easter decor, I bought a few new items at HomeGoods, Pier 1, and Target.

The item that inspired the whole look are the white placemats with beige and brown flowers, which I found at HomeGoods on sale for $9. I didn’t want to decorate with the typical pink and yellow Easter tablecloth, and those really grabbed my attention.

I was planning to use my white dishes to keep this tablescape really classic, but I had just bought more of my favorite Rose Chintz china and wanted to use it, plus the pink Kate Spade napkins (also on sale for $3 at HomeGoods) I had bought just in case now worked perfectly.

I saw these little grass bunnies at Pier1. Don’t they make a cute addition? They are ornaments, and I just cut off the string. The white napkin rings are also from Pier1.

I couldn’t find my 3-tiered white dessert server, so I improvised and put one of the Rose Chintz plates on top of a milk glass candle stick.

This is my favorite item on the table: a little vintage-inspired basket with an Easter egg that I added to a teacup and covered with a cloche.

Do you remember how I added the brown shelf to my mantel decor for St. Patrick’s Day? There always seem to be a few items that I reuse from my previous decor, and I wanted to use this shelf again, but in a different way.

I didn’t want to hang it on the wall to avoid nail holes, so I had to come up with a different solution to prop it up.

I was considering vintage book — we certainly have enough of those around — but then I thought mason jars might have just the right height. And they did! Problem solved.

Now I was free to pile on all our Easter decor. The two new items are the large wood bunny and the Happy Easter sign from HomeGoods.

My mom gave me the “Frohe Ostern” train years ago, and I love displaying this little reminder of Germany.

I found this Charlie Brown tree at Goodwill for $2, and it had the cutest Halloween ornaments hanging from it. Since I had a lot of Easter eggs I wanted to display, I decided to hang them on the tree instead.

This is a tag sale find, and the plant was on sale at Whole Foods after St. Patrick’s Day.

I rediscovered this pretty vintage plate a few weeks ago in a box.

I added six hand-painted eggs in egg holders to our staircase window and this large paper egg in a vintage teacup to one of our bookcases.

Visiting from Weekend Retreat party…your pretty table caught my eye! So many wonderful touches that make me want to sit down and have one of those yummy looking cupcakes. Really like the placemats and the bright napkins with the lovely floral napkin rings! Your mantel looks fun too! Happy Easter!
