Easter is Gone But It Is Still Spring…Right?

Have you put away all of your Easter eggs and bunnies? Are you done with spring decorating? Well, I did not host Easter dinner this year. How about that? It’s been many many years since I have not had most of the family at my home for Easter. At least my kids. But this year everyone was away or ill and I only had my grandson because my daughter and granddaughter were at the beach with 9 other 17-year old girls. I’m sure they had a grand time but I enjoyed a relatively quiet Easter. And there is plenty of time to entertain because Easter is Gone But It Is Still Spring…Right?

Although I did not host, I did set a table and I’ve decided that I am going to leave it set for a little bit. I realize I have to put the Easter eggs away but I am going to hang out with my bunnies for a bit longer. After all, they are around all summer and besides they make me happy.

I set my table this year without spending one dime. I shopped my house, mixed and matched, and used things I already had. Like this bunny runner. I bought him last year from Home Goods and decided he is cute enough to use again. I love the neutral colors.

The centerpiece is a hodgepodge of things I had around the house. The vase of flowers was in my kitchen, the angels (I have had forever) were in the living room, and I picked the bunnies up at Target earlier this spring. You can see my entire haul here.  This little vignette cost me $0.00. I like that.

The entire table setting were things I had and have used before. Not necessarily together but that’s the fun of it. You can mix and match decor just like you do clothing.

I dressed the mirror with a wreath I made last year. It adds a pop of color to that side of the room and I love the way it is reflected in the mirror.

This is a view from the kitchen. I should have probably moved the step stool and trash receptacle but we live in our house. It is not always picture perfect. It’s called transparency. When the table is set, I love the view of the dining room from the kitchen.

Here are a few more views of the table setting.

This is a combination of tableware I have had and used before. Again, I did not spend a dime for this spring refresh. Not just Easter, but spring and hopefully some of it will carry through summer as well.

I love this look. I’ve given you a peak in the picture above. I recently replaced two pictures that I love with these two windows with wreaths for spring/summer/until I need a change.  Stay tuned for another post on how this was done. Trust me, it was easy and what’s my favorite word…inexpensive. You could even say cheap in this case. 🙂 That post is upcoming so stay tuned.

So how do you feel about no cost decorating? Do you ever mix and match your decor stash?
