Good morning, sweet friends!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I am so thrilled to be taking over MacKenzie-Childs instagram stories today, and to be sharing our Easter tablescape decked out in MacKenzie-Child’s goodness! As some of you may know, I had the wonderful opportunity to visit MacKenzie-Childs farm last August and it was such a thrilling experience! I was so honored to be invited to New York where I was then introduced to MacKenzie-Childs and their amazing culture. It was literally love at first sight as I immediately fell head over heels with the brand. There is something so magical about watching the way each pottery piece came together, from raw clay to beautiful hand painted art. From sculpting a muddy/ sloppy substance into a beautiful piece, to watching every artisan create magic with each paint brush stroke they took. Every step of the creation process was so intriguing and witnessing the effort and love that was put into each item makes each collections even more special.
As collectors know, MacKenzie-Childs is full of vibrant colors and standout signature pieces that not only have the power to command attention but also the ability to warm up an entire room. Most MacKenzie-Childs items gain their bold look through color, signature patterns, textures, and unique ornimatention. People have fawned over their pieces for decades with a devoted fan base that has grown with each generation, they are a true passion brand, and there’s no question as to why.
So when MacKenzie-Childs reached out to me to help promote their newest Sweetbriar line, I was jumping up and down! As I stated before their collections tend to be full of color and bold pattern, which is lovely but let’s be honest, there are times when a table simply calls for white dishes, especially if there are other pops of color and pattern going on elsewhere. And because the team behind MacKenzie-Childs is brilliant, they decided to step outside of their traditional comfort zone and take an awesome/scary/exciting leap with their new Sweetbriar Collection. (My favorite!!) These pieces feature a more subdued color palette that appeals to a huge number of already devoted MacKenzie-Childs fans, while also proving the ability to grow their fan base even further to those neutral loving folks.
I was super excited when MacKenzie-Child’s reached and asked me to put together an Easter tablescape with their Sweetbriar collection. I myself tend to lean towards neutrals, adding in pops of color through unexpected things such as florals, colorful napkins, rugs, and vintage china. I love the vibrancy that it adds to a table-scape without being too overwhelming.
So with that written, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this new line of Sweetbriar products. Since this is an Easter table setting, my daughters and I came up with the fun idea to create an Easter craft to help add festive spunk to each place setting. I must admit, the results are pretty darn cute! I would love to know what you think!
We came up with the idea to put an untraditional spin on the traditional Easter egg. We used materials we had on hand so that in itself took a bit of creativity. After searching our fridge for eggs, I discovered all that we had were the brown ones, so dying them was no longer an option. That’s when I came up with the idea of drawing bunny faces on the each one. After my little artisans were done with their masterpieces 😉 I places them on top of gold napkin rings so they would stand upright. They looked adorable but something was missing and that’s when I glanced over at the eucalyptus on the table and thought “We’re going to put some ears on these little guys!” and I’m so glad we did. It was just the quirky touch they needed!
The girls had fun creating cute faces on each hard boiled egg while I helped them to poke holes into the shell using a safety-pin to add the leaves. We added some sparkle to some of the eggs with glue and glitter and then they were done. It was as simple as that! We had custom decorations to add some Easter flair to our amazing Sweetbriar plates. I love how little details such as the gold bunny nose brings out the gold handles of this amazing MacKenzie-Childs courtly check cutlery.
The process was super easy!
- All we did was simply boil the eggs.
- Draw bunny faces onto the hard boiled eggs with a fine point sharpie marker.
- Poke two holes into the tops of the eggs where you would like the eucalyptus leave stems to stand.
- Add any tiny flowers to the ears.
- Add glitter with glue if you wish.
Celebrating the Easter holiday is always a special occasion and I am so blessed to be able to decorate with great quality servingware from MacKenzie-Childs that I will surely be able to pass down to my daughters. Making memories with family and MacKenzie-Childs is something I will look back upon and cherish forever.
