Easter Table Setting in Blue and Orange

Pin It

This year I decided to do something totally different with my Easter table setting. Forget the traditional spring colors of pink and green, I chose the unexpected combination of blue and orange. It all started with my love affair with shades of indigo and the lovely eggs I dyed with red cabbage. (See how I did it.)

I haven’t use my pretty vintage china in a long time and since the plates have a dainty blue border, they’re perfect. I pulled out blue salad plates I picked up at Goodwill and set them on an orange table cloth.

In my Easter “box” I found a hand-crafted bunny made from wool. He’s adorable. I tucked a vintage blue hanky with a polka dot border in his lap and added a blue feather. The hanky takes the place of the usual napkin.

While I was on the “let’s do something different” path, blue martini glasses replace the expected basket. After all, I’m hosting a grown-up Easter brunch this year. A couple more feathers and it looks like the real bunny came to visit.

What do you think of my non-traditional Easter table? Yea or Nay? Will you try something different this year? Leave a comment below.

All Natural Easter Egg Dye

Pin It

I have been crushing over the color Indigo all winter. None of the paint companies have proclaimed it as an “official” color of the year, but it’s showing up everywhere. It’s the color between blue and violet on the color wheel, but I compare it to a well-washed chambray shirt. So I was inspired to dye Easter eggs in shades of blue using natural food products.

Did you know red cabbage turns eggs blue and blueberries turn them purple? I love the results, I just wouldn’t recommend doing this with little kids. It took over 12 hours to get this color! I don’t about yours, but my kids were done coloring eggs in 12 minutes!

  • Finely chop the cabbage.Since I could only find organic cabbage at $3.49 a pound, I just bought 1.
  • Put it in a pot and add enough water to cover it.
  • After if comes to a boil, let it simmer until almost all the color is cooked out of the cabbage. About 30-45 minutes.
  • Pour off the liquid into a stainless steel bowl, add a heaping tablespoon of white vinegar and submerge hard boiled eggs.

 [Note: I found a blog site where the crafter showed really dark blue eggs. She must have use a dozen heads of cabbage or added food coloring, because mine wouldn’t get any darker.]

Do the same with blueberries.

  • Boil 2 cups of frozen berries in enough water to cover them completely.
  • When the berries are soft, pour the juice into a stainless steel bowl; reserve.
  • Mash the berries through a strainer; add the strained juice to the reserved boiled juice/water.
  • Add a tablespoon of white vinegar.
  • Eggs dyed in blueberry juice took the color much faster.

Since this is a very grown-up project, I decided the eggs needed to be displayed in a more sophisticated way than a basket.

In a cut crystal bowl for example. Very elegant.

Or on a vintage silver platter with dome. Surprise Madame!

Maybe in a martini glass. Very Mad Men-esque!

What do you think of grown-up Easter Eggs? I think they’re très chic!

Amazing Weddings at Goodwill

I had a great time at Goodwill’s Amazing Wedding Event. There were so many bargain bridal gowns (brand-new, never-worn samples). Where can you get a $1000 dress for $149? I created 8 table setting ideas and themes using only items I found at Goodwill. Amazing!!

“Dressing” Easter Eggs

Pin It

Have fun dressing Easter eggs with your kids this year. I’m not sure why, but fake mustaches are very popular. Personalize your eggs with markers, hats, rhinestones and mustaches!

Ombré paint style is also very popular in interior design and fashion. I’ve even seen the look on fabric, wedding cakes, even fingernails. It’s a gradual change in color from light to dark (or vice versa). Or a graduated change from one color to another.

These eggs are easy to do, although a little messy. Mix dye according to package directions (I used food coloring), but fill cups with less water. It easier to hold the egg in the dye solution at the halfway mark. Gradually lift it out until you get layers of color. (The egg will be darker at the bottom). Repeat on the other end.

Or try a complimentary color.

Make funny faces on your colored eggs, one for each member of the family. Use a permanent marker to draw mustaches and lips. Personalize each with giggly eyes, rhinestones and hats.

For the ladies, draw in eyelashes; add feathers and a mini Easter basket. Be sure to make place cards so Grandma knows which one is hers!

 

I would love to hear from you!
