Spring is in full swing, and Easter’s on it’s way! It’s hard to believe that a week from today will be Good Friday. Even though our world has been turned upside down and social gatherings may be canceled, the joy of celebrating Easter in our hearts can never be canceled! Today some of my dearest blogging friends and I are getting together to share a wide variety of Easter and spring inspiration to celebrate this joyous season of rebirth and renewal.
As we are all facing difficult times and uncertainties in life, it is truly a blessing to gather with friends to share creativity and beautiful ideas. I am so glad you are here to celebrate with us! You will find links to 23 creative posts at the end of my post.
Today I am inviting you into my dining room to see how I have decorated for Easter in my beloved vintage-cottage style. As you may have seen in my Early Spring Home Tour, this year I have been decorating with a daffodils theme, which was inspired by some beautiful throw pillows I purchased last fall at Home Goods and the abundance of daffodils that have been in bloom these last few weeks.
I was able to enjoy this beautiful display for about three weeks. The forsythia branches and daffodils pictured are now past their glory, so I just started restyling the top of the vintage dresser for Easter.
Matthew 28:6: He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
This week I started working on transitioning the early spring daffodils vignette to a sacred vignette. I love this beautiful vintage post card of Jesus our shepherd, King of Kings! You might remember it from my “Consider the Lilies” Sacred Easter Tablescape from last year. The bouquet of drying daffodils was inspired by my friend Judith of Botanic Bleu. Judith shared a gorgeous blog post featuring dried daffodils that I simply loved.
There are still some lingering daffodils around our neighborhood, so I am keeping the pretty botanical daffodil pillows on the church pew until after Easter.
Yesterday I put together a very simple Easter table using my favorite cottage-farmhouse spring garden style accessories and some vintage treasures from my stash. Do you notice anything different here? I am using a tablecloth! I am so very excited to share the nearly 100 year-old crocheted tablecloth that I scored from my friend’s parents’ living estate sale last summer. It’s stunning!
I have never used a tablecloth on our beautiful century-old farm table because I love the rustic look of the planks and we eat (messy) dinner at the table nearly every day. This tablecloth is a true beauty however, and I have been waiting for just the right occasion to use it. I think it looks so “vintage-cottagey” and perfect for Easter!
I just love the late afternoon sunlight filtering through the tablecloth! Since the tablecloth is so beautiful on its own, I have opted not to set a full table with dishes, placemats and flatware. This also makes it easier to clear off everything (including the tablecloth) at meal times. We have certainly been enjoying more family meals around the table lately!
Easter decorating just just wouldn’t be complete without an Easter basket! My French basket tray centerpiece works perfectly for the holiday.
Instead of filling the basket with the typical Easter basket treats and toys, I styled it up with garden goodies for the Easter bunny! Isn’t my shabby white bunny just the sweetest? You may recognize him and several of my favorite spring accessories from last year’s spring dough bowl display.
Spring is in the Air Dough Bowl Display
Burlap carrots, faux veggies, herbs, daffodils and paperwhites will keep the Easter bunny happily munching through Easter. Moss-covered eggs and a trio of my own DIY decoupauged French paper napkin eggs add quintessential (French) cottage-Easter charm.
I am so excited for Easter-thyme!
I really love a mix of neutrals with green and yellow for early spring. The French eggs in the basket add a little pop of color to tie in with my vintage spring treasures on each end of the farm table.
Instead of coming up with an elaborate decorating scheme for Easter or stressing about a perfectly coordinated “magazine-worthy” tablescape, I simply picked a few treasures out of my spring and Easter stash that I personally want to enjoy through Easter. I just love these sweet vintage dutch girl planters! I filled them with the last of the daffodils growing around our home. I have had “yellow dress girl” for a few years, and the “pink dress girl” is a junkin’ find from last summer.
In the past three weeks I have rarely left the house, so I had to rely on using things I already had to decorate for Easter such as these free daffodils from our yard. It’s been hard enough to find enough groceries these days (between avoiding the stores and the stores selling out) without worrying about non-essentials like fresh flower bouquets and jelly beans! Luckily I thought ahead and saved these jelly beans in a plastic bag after decorating with them last year. There are so many chemicals and preservatives in them that they will likely last a few more seasons! Don’t worry, the family knows they are “just for looks.”
I wanted to add a natural pop of pink to coordinate with this pretty planter, so I cut a small piece of flowering quince that was growing against the rock wall across the street from our house. This was my first experience with this plant and I found out the hard way that it is full of very sharp thorns! Luckily I always wear gloves when cutting wild flowers and plants so I only ended up with a tiny little scratch. Still, it is very pretty and I love the color it adds here.
I balanced out the left side of the table with a few more vintage treasures. The darling faux yellow daffodils in my tiny French urn help to transition the centerpiece decor toward thw vignette with yellow chickies just to the left.
The baby chicks were purchased at Hobby Lobby last year to use in my Vintage Dishes and Daffodils Easter Tables for Two (one of my favorite tablescapes!)
I believe this precious gathering of springy treasures just might be my favorite decor right now. The little lovers planter was purchased back in February at an antiques shop with the intention of using it in a Valentine’s Day vignette. Instead, the couple is making their debut for Easter. I think the combination of colorful daffodils and freshy picked lemon thyme from my garden looks perfect in the planter.
The antique Easter postcard and “Bon Ami” reproduction vintage tin were also junkin’ finds from last summer.
The daffodils and lemon thyme smell so wonderful, and even the slightly waxy-sweet smell of the old jelly beans evokes a sense of childhood Easter morning nostalgia. These simple spring treasures make me smile!
Bon Ami, I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of my vintage cottage Easter decor in the dining room! I will be sharing a bit more Easter decor from around our home next week, so please do plan to stop back by again soon!
Now it’s time to continue on with all of the fun Easter and spring ideas! Next up is Marty of A Stroll Thru Life. Her home always looks lovely in spring! Don’t forget to visit all of the other amazing blogs via the links below.

Amber, I love your vintage style, and it is every bit of what my sisters and I strive for in hopes of attracting a customer base such as you. Your yellow and green color scheme is perfect for ushering in Spring and Easter. The crochet tablecloth is gorgeous, in such good condition, and I agree with the beauty of the sunlight dappling through the weave of the textile! I am always drawn to the beauty and handwork of those pieces, and really appreciate seeing people use them. All of your little gatherings of vintage collectibles and how they’re arranged have me wishing to return to our little business, but in due time. Like you, I’m avoiding people other than Mr. P., and kindly asking for space when others approach closer than 6′.April 3, 2020 at 7:52 am
Thank you for spreading joy with this collection of bloggers’ inspiration for Easter and Spring. Your blog brings me great joy. Happy Easter.
Thank you Rita! I knew you would appreciate the tablecloth. The previous owners appreciated it as well, and I purchased it in clean condition with no musty odor or old linen smell which is very rare when coming across older fabrics. As you know I normally have to steer clear of fabrics so when I realized how clean it was I splurged on it for $20.00, which is really more of a steal!
Like you, I am looking foward to getting back to normal. It would be nice to maybe make another trip to your booth this summer too.
Thanks for hopping with us!April 4, 2020 at 9:31 pm
Absolutely beautiful! Love how you added many Easter treasures you have to your home.
You’re always inspiring. I had to laugh at the jellybeans. You’re so right they will last for years.
Happy to know your safe and doing well.

Haha I also saved an adorable white chocolate bunny and some cute iced Easter cookies from Dollar Tree from last year and they are still in perfect shape without any evidence of deteriorating. I can’t eat gluten and junky food so I might as well enjoy those in my decorating and save some money while I’m at it. I also got smart and started freezing macaroons after using them in tablescapes so I can keep reusing them.
My frugality knows no limits!!! haha
Thanks for visiting!April 4, 2020 at 9:33 pm
Amber, how beautiful your lovely home is all decked for Easter. I can see what a treasure that new “old” tablecloth is. you are right, this was the perfect time to bring it out to soften the look of your Easter table. Your little shabby bunny is certainly a star of this pretty display. Thank you so much for all of the work you put into these fantastic hops, corralling all of us bloggers. Stay well! Happy Easter!April 3, 2020 at 9:42 am
Your vintage style is always so gorgeous Amber! I love the way you layer things and how you added all the Easter and Spring touches throughout too. I’m totally obsessed with the way you use that tablecloth too. It’s so fantastic! Thanks so much for putting these posts together. This is such a great group of ladies. Hugs, CoCoApril 3, 2020 at 10:05 am
So pretty. I love the bunnies, your collection is wonderful. Your dining room looks perfect for Easter. Thanks for having me on the tour.April 3, 2020 at 10:16 am
It’s alway a treat Amber to watch you work your magic arranging all these pretty vintage treasures. I can’t remember if you supplied a link for the beautiful French basket pictured on the dining table in past posts or not. I would love to know where to look for one. Beautiful blog hop my friend! Happy Easter and stay well!April 3, 2020 at 10:19 am
Amber, everything looks perfectly lovely and full of vintage goodness! I especially love your Easter postcards and charming centerpiece. Thanks for hosting! Happy & healthy Easter! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store AddictionApril 3, 2020 at 10:26 am

Oh, how lovely!
I adore all the daffodils and the bunnies. . .even the yellow chicks!
The lace tablecloth is exquisite!
Thank you for always inspiring!
Amber your display is pure perfection…I am always so inspired by you! Love your beautiful tablecloth and all of the wonderful treasures you brought together! Another wonderful hop!April 3, 2020 at 10:48 am
Wowza, what a lovely new/old tablecloth! It will be a treasure forever. If it were mine, I may have to serve only white food on Easter. 😉 We’re messy too. We always have a stain on something. It’s usually from some cheesy goodness. And I’m so jealous of your green thumbs and all of your plants! They bring all of your wonderful vintage treasures together. I’ve never thought to save the jelly beans. Maybe because we only have like 4 left. This year we bought Malted Eggs and I think they lasted two days. They’re obviously the Misters favorite. LOL. Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a wonderful celebration of Easter!April 3, 2020 at 11:56 am
Amber, I always enjoy a visit to your home and your vintage styling. Love how you put together vignettes and centerpieces with a combo of vintage treasures, florals and new finds. That tablecloth is fabulous and looks wonderful and so perfect in the room. And, I never knew about using dried daffodils before. Ours haven’t been out as long, so I will have to see what I can do with them. Wishing you a healthy April and happy Easter! Thanks as always for hosting our get togethers.April 3, 2020 at 12:10 pm

I have several family crocheted lace pieces that are packed away and this inspires me to find them. your table is gorgeous, and that oval shaped basket tray is perfect filled with the daffodils and Spring goodies. you always have the most amazing vintage vignettes. thankyou so much for putting the Hop together, it’s always so much fun. take care and stay well!April 3, 2020 at 1:37 pm
Daffodils are Spring! I love how you have so many different varieties. The daffodil pillows catch my eye every time I see them. They are perfect for your house in Spring. Thank you for the shout-out for my dried daffodil post earlier this Spring. That was such an unplanned serendipitous moment when I realized the daffodils had dried so beautifully.
Thank you for hosting another fabulous blog hop with all of these creative ideas from our wonderful blogging friends.
Stay safe, dear friend.

All your vignettes are so beautiful! I love how you style your treasures into your spaces!!! You truly have a gift my friend!! Thanks for organizing another amazing hop!April 5, 2020 at 12:20 pm
I loved all of your vignettes! I have several Dutch girl and boy vintage figurines and planters and need to put them to work like you did. In Maine, most of my daffodils haven’t even broken through yet so I have plenty of time! Envy you all the greenery…but my turn will come! Faux for sure till then! Happy Easter!April 5, 2020 at 1:29 pm
Amber, I love how you decorate your home and have to look over your photos many times for all your inspiring ideas. The tablecloth is a real winner! And I really love the main centerpiece with all the green plants, bunny and so much more in the basket. It’s stunning! FYI, I do the same with my candy corn I use in the fall. I have no idea how many years old it is now. Anyways, thank you for inviting me to join your blog hop and here’s wishing you a blessed Easter.April 5, 2020 at 3:00 pm
Amber,April 5, 2020 at 8:41 pm
I am always in awe with your antique and vintage collections. You have such a gift for mixing new items so that they blend perfectly with your vintage style. I pray that you and your family stay safe and healthy! Big Hug! XO Christy
Amber, what a beautiful table. I love that you transitioned from one look to another without starting from scratch ~ such a smart thing. The tablecloth is a treasure and I’m sure you will use it for many future tablescapes. Love the basket centerpiece with your bunny. It’s also good to see him. Thank you for hosting another great blog hop.April 7, 2020 at 8:56 am
