Thrifty Easter Decor and Tablescape Ideas
Even though there are two feet of snow outside, our Blue Cottage is all decorated for Easter! It’s cheery and colorful — and didn’t cost much.
If spring isn’t showing up yet, we can at least bring spring inside, right?
Do you like saving money on home decor? Then I hope this post encourages you to visit thrift store and tag sales. I’ve decorated half of our home with thrifty decor.
If that’s not your thing, I also found thrifty decor at Primark, HomeGoods, T.J. Maxx, and Target for my table setting and decorations.
Some of the items didn’t cost anything because I already had them, like this cloche.
Just put Easter eggs into it, and voila — colorful Easter decor.
I kept the mantel really simple. I usually load it up with decor, but not this year.
I bought the framed print many years ago at a tag sale and it usually hangs in our powder room, but the colors worked so well that I moved it.
The little “Easter houses” are from a campaign I did years ago.
The tablescape is a mix of old and new. The runner is new, from Target, the big rabbit from HomeGoods, and green napkin holder from the Christmas Tree Stores.
I found those pink pillar candles for just $2.50 at Primark, and the bunny napkin rings were $1.25 at the Christmas Tree Stores.
The wooden tray, the vintage vase, the bird — what would you call those? — are tag sale finds.
Recognize those vintage lily of the valley plates I bought on in a New York thrift store?
I paired them with my Johnsons Bros. plates and added German chocolate and a little hand-painted wooden ornament to every plate.
And here is the rabbit I recently found at an antique store on our trip to the Pocono Mountains.
That basket is a $1 thrift store find from a just few weeks ago, as well as the bunny picture.
This chicken wire cage is from the Christmas Tree Stores, and I paired it with a vintage plate and an IKEA tray.
Vintage pie tins come in handy not just in the kitchen. I made my hugely popular pie tin centerpiece with one (the one I did a Facebook Live for Hometalk for), and here I’m using it as a tray to contain the plant, vintage letters, and a vial with bingo pieces.
In the end, the bunny picture looked nicer on our hutch, so I put him there among all of my milk glass and pitchers.
The wooden bunny my mother gave me last year is now sitting on a plate under a cloche, and I added a few paper Easter eggs to an egg-shaped bowl I have on the cabinet I repainted with Amy Howard chalk paint last year.
I hope you have fun decorating for Easter as well!
