Easter - Casual, Cool and Extra Yummy
Usually my posts are very wordy. But as I am sure you will find what I am about to say shocking, I may have over done the details of my son's upcoming 5th birthday and it is consuming my life. As I type, my eyes are trying to close, I've just finished cutting out 189 pieces of "space money" and I won't even get to my Friday night ritual of a glass of wine and US Weekly. Too tired to declare who wore it best. I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves (for the most part). I had been wanting to use yarn in a party setting for a while, simply because I hadn't yet, so when Amy, of Amy's Kitchen Table, asked me to be a part of this Easter project, I headed out to the local craft store to get some. I found the perfect yarn in this graduated color pattern of purple, green, orange, and terra cotta. While the colors are "spring-y" they aren't pastel and gross.
One the main buffet table, I used simple terra cotta pots to match the cute two-tone polka dot fabric I found. I also continued the yarn accents in different ways. The succulents (which I stole from Lauren) look right at home on the rough cut wood blocks used to create levels and keep it totally casual and cool.
Amy's Kitchen Table. Tomorrow I will post more details of the eating table. I know that doesn't sound right at all, but my brain is done.
All photos are mine.
