Bird nest napkin rings and Easter tablescape

I found these napkin rings on the net from Scissors and Spatulas and decided I had to try out my own. Instead of mini wreaths, I purchased some wood napkin rings and painted them. Here are the supplies I started with.


I just glued the eggs into the nests and then attached the nests to the painted rings. I discovered that the wire that was holding the nest to the package was perfect for wiring it to the ring, so I can remove them from the rings if I ever want to change them up.


Once my napkin rings were done, I went about setting my Easter table.




I went to the Dollar Tree for some plain white plates and they did not have four alike! I came home with these green ones instead, which I really like now that the whole tablescape is complete.



I wanted to do something similar to my gumdrop and candy tablescape from Christmas, so I placed some egg candles and painted wooden eggs on candlesticks the same way I used ornaments at Christmas. Yes, I painted the wooden eggs. My secret for the polka dots is to dip a pencil eraser into paint and make my dots.



I wanted an egg tree for a centerpiece, but I don't have one and decided instead to use these colorful daisies I bought last year and hadn't used yet. I tucked some egg picks into the arrangement.


Lastly, I placed my book page eggs into a couple of bowls and placed one on each end.


Thanks for stopping by. I'll be linking up at
