Basic Steps to Set a Not Basic Easter Table

Over here at Jollity, we like to be extra… extra extra, to be precise. But we’re also busy people, and know that you are too! So we came up with a few quick, but super effective ways to style your Easter table without having to spend hours figuring out the best way to combine the cutest stuff!

Observe…

The most important (and practical) part of your table is your main plate. We chose a square gingham plate to do something out of the ordinary (and to hold more food, no judgement).

Next up – this awesome little bunny plate! It’s exactly the right size for dessert! (or as a salad plate, bunnies love salad).

Since you’ll need some flatware, we encourage you to mix and match some wooden cutlery with simple striped patterns and solid, poppy, spring colors! Pair them with a solid guest napkin (we added flair with a scalloped edge) and your table is looking great!

Add a sweet daisy plate to hold your sweets! Jellybeans anyone? They are, after all, essentially a vegetable. Or a legume, either way, they’re amazing and you need a plate just for them. We all know that where there’s one bunny there’s more bunnies… so a bunny cup was kind of a no brainer.

Adorable paper straws add some additional (and functional) color for the table.

Last but certainly not least, in the spirit of all that is extra – we added this sweet little bunny piñata favor. He adds to the decor, and he’s just full of surprises (see what we did there? If you aren’t here for the puns….).

Put it all together, add some fun fringe, baskets, and some height in the center (we love these stacked cake platters!), and voila! Gorgeous Easter table done. Guests, prepare to be impressed!

Baby Reveal Ideas (That You Can Do On Short Notice!)

So you made a person! Maybe you’re excited to find out and share with the world if this tiny human will be male or female. Though you’ll find out via ultrasound, there are many fun ways to share the exciting news with your family and friends that don’t necessarily require you to throw a full blown party! Here are some easy baby reveal ideas!

Gender Reveal Balloon646A1905

You’re not the only one ready to pop! This gender reveal balloon kit is available in store and online! (and if you come see us at 2111 Granby St. in Norfolk, VA we can even fill ‘er up with helium for you!).  This is a classic way to announce, and is super fun live or can be snapped in a perfectly timed picture to keep forever!

 

BOY or GIRL Sparkler candles

Wether you’re having family and friends over for cake or plan on eating a whole cake yourself and taunting others with just a picture – we love these jumbo sparkler letters and how easy it is to spell whatever you want!

 

Confetti Fountain

These bad boys are pre-filled with confetti in either pink or blue and are ready to go! (just be sure to snip off the identifying ribbon if you want to keep it a secret!) and enjoy a burst of colored confetti in this convenient little package!

 

Gender Neutral Banner

Maybe gender reveals aren’t your thing, and that cool too! There are plenty of fun ways to announce your new addition without having to label anything! We suggest a fun banner kit that you can design yourself to say something cheeky. We love “it’s a baby” or “it’s not a puppy.”

Top o’ the Mornin’!

Hey party people! Get out your green, we’re prepping for St. Patrick’s Day next weekend! We created a magical St. Patty’s rainbow backdrop perfect for any leprechaun treasure trove (or your home, you know, either way).

Here are the supplies you need for this festive backdrop:

Inflate your 3′ balloon with helium and weight it down with your handy dandy balloon weight!

Blow up your cauldron! (This one you’ll have to inflate on your own!)

519A7006
Now you’re going to use your masking tape to attach your garlands (in rainbow order, of course) on to the bottom section of your balloon! Run the extra garland length down into the inflatable cauldron cooler so it’s out of sight (and so the magic is coming directly out of the pot o’ gold).

You get the picture… do this with all your colors!

We added a little white festooning at the top because it looks like a lovely little cloud at the end of your rainbow… but also because we had a few spots of tape to cover up, but mainly because it’s a cute little cloud!

And SHAZAM! There you have it! We suggest filling your cauldron with gold coins (or chocolate coins, yum) for a more authentic “end of the rainbow” feel.
