I cannot believe it's Easter this weekend! Where did March go?

I wasn't planning to do much Easter decorating, not only because it's basically over but also because my kiddos are older and they don't get excited about plastic eggs and bunnies anymore.

They do like the chocolate though, as does their momma ❤ 🐇

My plans changed however when I found a bunch of daffodil yellow ironstone at Goodwill last week and was inspired to put together a quick Easter tablescape in our kitchen nook.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my stories where I shared my Goodwill haul...I was SO excited to score a bunch of ironstone and some pretty vintage dishes and teacups too!

Sweet Vintage Easter Tablescape

Those daffodil yellow dishes reminded me of a few things I had packed away in the attic, so up I went. What vintage treasures are hiding in your attic?

My talented mom in law made these sweet fluffy chicks when Mr DIY was just a little boy (probably in the 70's)! I was so happy to inherit them and my 3 kids have loved on them every Easter (until a few years ago lol).

I remember being a newlywed and my m-i-l pulling things out of bins and boxes, asking if I wanted them. There were Christmas ornaments and decorations, both handmade and collected as well as so many other vintage items. Of course I said yes! I love having a piece of my husband's history!

I set our round white Craiglist table with a embroidered topper that I found at Goodwill years ago. It is in pristine condition and has a ring of chickens, chicks and eggs around the edge. It makes an appearance in our home every year!


I set the table with the vintage white ironstone dishes that I've collected from the thrifty store for years, and those yellow berry bowls went on top. The cottage floral eggs I decoupaged with napkins last year have pride of place. I love how the pinks play off the yellow.

Okay, another story...when my daughter Abby was little, she was all about American Girl dolls. You've been there, right momma? I got her a doll, but money was tight and I couldn't afford any of the cute (and ridiculously expensive) accessories.

But like a good budget-conscious momma, I improvised and found a way. I bought a tiny vintage quilt and a length of yellow chenille on an online auction, I found a tiny vintage doll bed with white spindles on Craigslist, and I put together the sweetest doll bed with soft, vintage linens. No one else had one like it!

Abby still had everything in her closet, so I borrowed the yellow chenille and timeworn quilt and repurposed those sweet vintage linens on my vintage Easter table!


The Spring bird's nest centerpiece I made earlier this year was the perfect addition to the table. The faux tulips and daffodils are the perfect match to the rest of the table!

And I brought out just a couple small bunnies and the gingham eggs that I hand painted years ago (it's a really easy tutorial!) as well as some linen eggs I found at HomeGoods.



Everything works together!

I love that I brought together all these stories and pieces of the past and created a tablescape that looks cohesive and planned!

I think that's such a beautiful picture of what our lives look like to God! He is weaving together all our experiences and our pain, our adventures and our sorrow into one beautiful piece of art that, when viewed as a whole, totally makes sense!



Do you decorate with your vintage items? Or keep them packed away? Maybe it's time to unpack them, blow off the dust and bring them into your home again!


Pin it to Remember!

  2. Pretty finds and collecting old dishes should be used if safe. I love collecting ironstone.
