We’re planning on getting together with family and friends that feel like family to celebrate this weekend. It’s my husbands birthday, and we’re having a beer and root beer tasting to celebrate (more on that coming soon) but for the kids I wanted to include some Easter fun. I am planning on using my new favourite scheme of kraft paper and twine for the adult table, and wanted to come up with an Easter version of this neutral scheme for the kid’s table.
I used two end tables and children’s table to set up our little table for six. I know this usually never happens, but all the tables were the same height! I covered them all with brown kraft paper to start. I used easy plastic white plates, and then made sweet little bundles of napkins and cutlery. I used these mini paper bags and stamped them with “Hoppy Easter”.
I wanted to add a bunny detail. I found a simple bunny template at Titantoni. I cut the bunnies out of simple brown cardboard, hot glued on a little cotton batten to create the sweetest bunny tail ever, and tied them on to the little bags with some twine. So sweet.
I decided it would be fun to make a little garland too, so I cut out the printed pattern in white, and alternated them with some more cut out of brown kraft paper.
I decided to keep it simple, and instead of breaking out the sewing machine and worrying about keeping the spacing right, a used a simple needle and thread and stitched them together by hand.
They are so light, I just taped them up for the weekend. I love how they turned out, and they were so simple to make. They’d also look great with a more colourful table cut out of coordinating scrapbook paper. I had some white paper doily bunting so I strung it up as well, to create a layered effect.
One final detail on our simple table we these sweet little Easter nests. I wanted to add a little centrepiece, but worried about the kids knocking over flowers, so I came up with this kid-proof idea.
I shredded some of the brown kraft paper, and a few pages from an old book. I lined some glass bowls with a little plastic wrap to use as the mold for the nests.
I mixed a little warm water with white glue and dipped in my shredder paper, then I just pushed them into the mold and let them dry a couple days. My little girls are already eyeing the chocolate eggs. 😉
I love how my neutral Easter table for the kids turned out, and it was really simple to put together with things I had around the house.
Hope you and yours have a very “Hoppy Easter” too!
