Easter Tree in a Breakfast Room Easter Tablescape

|

I know that you are familiar with Christmas trees. Are you familiar with an Easter tree? We have had one for years. It’s decorated with lights and Easter eggs. For the first time, it’s serving as the centerpiece in a breakfast room Easter tablescape.

I actually composed most of this breakfast room Easter tablescape almost a month ago when I was decorating our kitchen and breakfast room for Easter I just kept it a little secret. I planned to share it, but then two Easter wreaths and an Easter mantel and dining room Easter tablescapes butted in line.

Now is the perfect time to share the breakfast room Easter tree tablescape.

Besides the Easter tree, I had another couple of reasons to create a breakfast room Easter tablescape, which I’ll show you in a minute.

EASTER TREE IN A EASTER TABLESCAPE

I love to see the “from~beginning~to~end” process of just about everything. I feel like it is a learning process. So let’s get started. Creating this breakfast room Easter tree tablescape was relatively quick since I had my vision and my inspiration pieces ready to go.

PREPPING THE EASTER TABLECLOTH

Our breakfast room table is round, and, to be honest, Sweet Shark and I rarely eat at it. But I love to have it looking pretty for special occasions.

The first thing I did was cover it with a white tablecloth. Then I used this pink and white buffalo check fabric which was my first inspiration. I ordered it from Spoonflower last spring but had not used it. Now was a perfect time. I didn’t hem it, just ironed it well.

THE EASTER TREE CENTERPIECE

My second and main inspiration is this white branch tree that we have had for years. I don’t even remember where I bought it.

At one time, I had a plug~in string of lights made of little Easter eggs. The plug~in required the Easter tree to be on a table against a wall, so I couldn’t use it as a centerpiece. After several years, several of the little Easter lights broke. After Easter last year, I just threw it away.

After Christmas, I bought 2 extra strands of battery~operated lights just for this Easter tree.

First, I wrapped them around the tree.

Then I placed the tree in a favorite pink and white pitcher from HomeGoods and stuffed tissue paper around to secure it.

Here you can see the battery packs.

I stuffed them under a piece of pink tissue.

Next, I hung a couple of dozen Easter eggs on it.

To finish the centerpiece, I placed some pastel shred around the base of the Easter tree. I’ll show you the complete tree later.

SETTING THE BREAKFAST ROOM EASTER TABLE

For placemats, I used bright green woven ones from Pier 1 that I’ve had for a long time. I have two of each green color.

Here is my third inspiration element. In February at an estate sale, I hit the jackpot with this set of lunch plates and cups. Do you recognize the pattern?

I did immediately. It’s a classic Laura Ashley pattern from years ago. When my older daughter had her first big girl bedroom, I fabric~backed her walls with this pattern and bought the sheets and comforter.

I haven’t seen it in years, but I knew I had to have the set.

In addition to the four plates and cups were four egg cups. The entire set was under $20. I absolutely love it and knew in February that I would use it for Easter.

Around the base of the centerpiece, I used the 4 bunny acrobats that belonged to my son when he was a little boy. He said years ago that I could keep them. Typical boy grown~up man.

For napkins, I used the green and white gingham ones that I made for last year’s spring tablescape. Since this would be a casual Easter tablescape, I thought pink plastic forks and spoons would do just fine.

One more special addition was the floral decoupage Easter eggs I made. I’ve been dying to try my hand at this project since I saw my friend Yvonne at Stone Gable make them.

For glassware, I added the pretty pink glasses that I found at an antique mall a few years ago. I think they are the sweetest glasses.

EASTER GOODIES TO EAT

You can’t have an Easter table without Easter candy.

How about some cranberry and orange scones? Fresh strawberries and blueberries? This would be a light breakfast.

Another pink sherbet glass holds yogurt to pair with the fresh fruit.

For an Easter toast, a little glass of prosecco would be perfect. We need a little bubbly at this time of our lives.

And now, let me show you the entire table with our Easter tree. The eggs are from several places and have been collected over the years.

At night, the timer I set brings the Easter tree to life.

I am so ready for springtime and Easter. I am feeling the beauty of spring and the power of Easter more than ever this year. I feel blessed to be healthy, to be at home with Sweet Shark, and to know that our kids and grandkids are healthy.

Thank you for PINNING this Easter tree tablescape and sharing. I hope it inspires you.

Have a wonderful week. Stay in and stay safe.

  5. Carol, this has to be my favorite of all your tablescapes. Probably because I love Easter and pink but your estate sale find and egg tree are over-the-top fabulous! I will definitely start collecting some eggs so I can make a tree and I bet when you son sees how adorable your table is, he might want those fun bunnies back! Everything is perfectly spring and so beautiful. Aaaahhhh! I love it. Would never want to leave. Well maybe for some a refill of scones. Happy Easter Friend!

  6. I really DO need to get out my Easter Egg tree, I just have no idea where to put it! I love how it looks on your table, in the pitcher. So cheery and happy. We need cheery and happy these days. Alas, we’ll be in solitary on Easter although I think Rick will join me for dinner. We’ll have to be creative this year but at least the house is cute! I’m absolutely certain yours is!

  10. I love your pink and green color scheme…it’s perfect for Easter. Also, that Easter tree is just the cutest. I hope you have a wonderful Easter!

  11. What a gorgeous table you set in your breakfast room, Carol! I love your Easter egg tree and it reminds me of one that my grandmother displayed every year decorated with eggs that she decorated by decoupaging pictures cut from cards on the outside and also with eggs where she cut a window in one side and created a scene inside. I recognized that Laura Ashley pattern. The dishes and egg cups that you scored were a great estate sale find. I’m glad that you show the step-by-step way that you do things. It helps tell the story and it helps the reader realize that they too can create a beautifully decorated table.

  12. I LOVE your table, Carol! The egg tree is so sweet with the textured eggs, and I love the little rosebuds (or are those tulips?) on your dishes! Always love your tables, as they are done so tastefully! Pinned!

  13. I’m in love with your Easter tablescape and your Easter tree centerpiece! Everything is so beautifully put together with the pink and green and those lovely dishes. I also love all the little bunnies. Now if only we could all gather for Easter, I’d be right over for your delicious scones! Wishing you a safe and blessed Easter, my sweet friend.

  14. I love your Easter tablescape!!! The Easter tree as a centerpiece is so clever! Love the pink and green color palette too!

  15. Carol I love your Easter tree and tablescape, especially the varying shades of green with pink! Your decoupaged eggs are beautiful. I am making some more tomorrow!

    I also just love the garden views outside your window. Please do enjoy those scrumptious treats and lovely views by treating yourself to a special “staying home” quiet celebration of spring.

    Thanks so much for joining the hop. Happy spring!

  16. Carol, I love everything about this bright, cheerful Easter table — the egg tree centerpiece, the pink check fabric, color scheme, etc. But, the vintage stemware made me swoon! So clever how you often use fabric pieces to layer on your tabletop. Bee healthy and have a most Happy Easter,

  17. Carol, the dishes are perfect! What an awesome find. Scones and strawberries sound good to me any time. Love the acrobatic bunnies and the tree is perfect in your sweet striped pitcher!! Happy Easter!
    hugs,
    Jann

  20. Hi Carol, your Easter table is beautiful and fun with all the funny bunnies and your Easter tree!!! Thank you for posting over at Share Your Style this past week. I am happy to feature your post this week at SYS #252. <3 And yes, I am happy that everyone is healthy in our family so far ~ in California, South Dakota, Connecticut (my youngest brother is delivering medicine for pharmacies to elderly patients, much needed!), Maine, Massachusetts, Texas (us and our daughter), and S. Carolina. Much to be grateful for this Easter time!!!

    Blessings to you,
    Barb 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Barb. I’m so excited. GlD to hear that all your family is well. Stay safe up there in Denton (that’s where I went to college.)

  21. Carol,
    I’m so glad you were able to get your Easter table with all its wonderful pieces in your post line-up. The egg tree is perfect for your table. Seeing your table sitting in front of the windows with green grass and trees in the background reminds me of my breakfast table area. Don’t you just love being able to see your yard from your table!

    I liked the tree in the repurposed pitcher and especially like how you used a mix of colors for your grass at the base of the tree.

    Happy Spring!

    Judith
