We’ve partnered with professional party planner and crafter Thuy Bui from Hey Thuy to show us her favorite twist on a traditional Easter brunch and décor.
Now when you think of Easter, I’m sure you think of bunnies, eggs and lots of pastel colors. But today I’m showing you how to put together a more modern tablescape, while still maintaining that Easter feel.
The inspiration behind my Easter brunch idea was a roll of black and white gingham wrapping paper that I got for $2.99. It makes for the perfect table runner, and it cost me next to nothing.
I knew with the gingham wrapping paper, I wanted to use lots of greens and add in bits of yellow. Tuesday Morning has the best selection and variety of dinnerware. I also picked up a cheese board for the center of my tablescape for $5.99. And I love using kitchen towels as place setting napkins. I’m so in love with these gray and white stripe towels that I got for $5.99 for a set of two.
It was a bit challenging to try to pull in the Easter setting without adding in pastel colors, but I found the perfect moss bunny for my centerpiece for $6.99. I can’t wait use it in other places in my home after Easter.
For drinks, I found the perfect metal tray and matching ice bucket to serve my fresh lemonade. They matched perfectly with my tablescape, and the tray was only $5.99 and the ice bucket was $9.99. Since they’re metal and green, I’ll be able to use them all summer long.
One of my favorite sections in Tuesday Morning is their paper napkins and paper plates aisle. I love finding fun designs and color schemes and stocking up on them for those unexpected parties. For my Easter tablescape, I found the perfect black and white floral napkins. They were $2.99, and it helped tie in my theme. While browsing through the scrapbook section, I spotted a mini canvas for $2.99 and I came up with a fun idea to use it as part of my centerpiece.
I printed off a bunny template online and decided to trace it on one of my paper napkins. Then I hot glued my bunny shape onto my blank canvas. It was the perfect touch to add to the center of my table, and it matched perfectly with the napkins at each place setting.
I finished everything off with a short vase for $7.99 and a handful of fresh flowers. I love how I was able to put together my whole table setting for a fraction of the cost of department stores.
