Decorating your Table


Easter is fast approaching! FAST! I bought some new Easter decor at Roberts in Orem last July and dang it, I need to get it out.

With that said, you all may be looking for some Easter ideas too. I received an email from this bloggers husband. HUSBAND! He wrote to tell me about his wife’s blog and that she has 30+ projects she created herself. HER HUSBAND! I just think that is the sweetest thing ever. Now if she really wrote it and only made it seem like it was her husband…….I don’t want to know. My world of thinking her husband loves her and her hobby that much is a much brighter place…..know what I mean?

Actually, Creative Stirrings was the idea of her husband. He thinks his wife is the most creative person ever and suggested she start a blog. I love that. He’s dubbed The Other Half and will chime in on her blog from time to time.

She’s got lots of table ideas, but lets look at Easter first.

Starting with this cute table runner……..Darling way to make little chicks!easter table decorationThis looks like a kids or extra table.

Something I could do, I have most the items she uses…….simple. jungle birthday themeNothing fancy to buy to create this creative party.

This is a …… guessed it…….a Mickey Mouse Party! micky mouse theme birthday Look at the plates….look at the little mickey heads made with finger prints. You know what I think is the best thing ever? There is not ONE registered trademarked Disney item on the table. Once again, this did not require you to run to the store and buy a bunch of stuff you’ll never use again. You know what else I love? She’s using paper plates and cups……..but made it look fancy! My girlfriend Val is going to be all over this. She is a table maniac. history lesson party OK, now she’s just showing off. She had an Aztec Party for educational purposes. But if it makes you feel any better, she used paper products again. Before you think that would be too ordinary…..look how she transformed them.
