And when I saw this photo in the Pottery Barn catalog, I knew that I had found what I was looking for! I love the color and the texture…so springy and fun!
And I just fell in love with this place setting…so festive and colorful…and decided to use it as a springboard for my tablescape this year!
Sooo…here is my version! I like to start out by playing with the place setting at first, then add in all the other details later. I think I am going to choose just the pretty pale aqua with white as my color scheme since my tablescape will be for a small group and I want a simple look this year.
But if you know me, then you know that I am not only a big fat copy cat, but I am also
1. Wicker charger from Walmart…$4.00 Pottery Barn…$19.50
2. Beaded trim dinner plate from Dollar Tree…$1.00 Pottery Barn…$12.00
3. Aqua salad plate from Pier 1…$7.00 Pottery Barn…$12.00
4. Ramekin from World Market…$2.00 Pottery Barn…$10.50
5. Small hobnail bowl from Pier 1…$2.00 Pottery Barn…$5.00
I had to cheat a little on #4 and use a plain white ramekin since I couldn’t find a pretty patterned salad plate like the one on the Pottery Barn site. I will have to give that one to Pottery Barn!
Note: I have been told that the charger is not available at many Walmarts. I did see a chunky version, more like the Pottery Barn charger but lighter in color, at my Walmart for only $3.00. They were located with the placemats. The bunny egg cups are also hard to find, since I think each store (in my area, at least) seems to have been issued only eight with only two of them being white. I keep checking and so far no more have arrived. However, I have found white bunny egg cups at World Market here.
Also on the Pottery Barn table…pretty matching napkins and cute white bunny egg cups! And…here are my versions. I couldn’t find any ready-made napkins that matched my dinnerware, so I opted to make my own, using fabric that I found at JoAnn. It was on sale, but you could always use a coupon. The savings continue!
Handmade napkin…$1.00 Pottery Barn…$7.00
Bunny egg cup from Walmart…$3.00 Pottery Barn…$8.50
Also on the table…my Pottery Barn inspired burlap-wrapped vases…easy and inexpensive to make from Dollar Tree vases! I have already shown you how I made my version here. I am loving the way this is looking!
Now…let’s add things up. Pottery Barn’s version is a grand total of $64.00 per place setting! My version adds up to $18.00….a big savings! And…I already had most of it, so the actual cost for me will be even less! Woo hoo!
Here’s another look. Not bad, huh? The colors are so soft and just say spring to me! And...I love all the texture!
Please stay tuned as I continue to build my Easter tablescape because I have a few more cost-saving tricks up my sleeve! You know how we love to think…err…outside the box here at the Plate Addict’s!
And just in case you missed them, be sure to check out my Pier 1 inspired burlap bunny ear napkin rings! Gotta love these because not only were they easy to make, they were free!
And even more inexpensive spring fun…my super easy burlap and dogwood spring wreath! See how I made it here.
