A collective view of our budget-minded, thrifted and semi-homemade Easter home...

From those thrifted Easter eggs spray painted gold and thrifted Easter bunnies sprayed white, to thrifted white dishes adding texture and even West Elm after Christmas clearanced gold table runners added some chic shine. Place cards I made help personalize the place settings on the table, which I reused later in mini chocolate filled Easter basket giveaways. Spring touches surrounded us, from the inside out: Spring bunnies were in the container garden out front and hidden eggs out back on the patio. Last minute fresh flowers (white roses the hubs brought home Saturday evening) were added to the table in another thrifted vessel on Sunday morning...

Fresh flowers added to the table...

Family style served food vs. the originally though buffet...

A room filled with food, family and friends...

Monogrammed Golden Eggs
and name cards printed on linen card stock and cut with pinking shears...

Individual Carrot Cups (in lieu of a veggie tray)
Soaked carrots in water, covered pot holes (lol) and filled in each with two tablespoons of ranch veggie dip and five baby carrots...

Sorting colors...

Fresh brewed iced tea & homemade side dishes complimented a Honey Baked Ham (and chicken for the non-meat eater). Guests brought wine, key lime pie and carrot cake for dessert - which was dressed with two of the individualized carrot cups from the appetizers... all served family style at the table vs. buffet style like I had originally thought...

Thrifted dishes and dessert...

Spring living...

Easter touches on the patio... Sephora egg-spotting!

Marcia and Mom...

Friends and family...

Everyone laughed much, reminiced over childhood stories, ate well and had a lovely time =). We toasted to "Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end" and on that note - now it's time to 'undecorate' and pack it away for next year.

How was your Easter weekend?
Blessing to you and new beginnings...
