Easter on a Tray Blog Tour

Welcome! With Easter only a few days away, I’m excited to be joining Katherine from Katherine’s Corner and some of her other blog friends for an Easter on a Tray Blog Tour.

Each of the bloggers on the tour has prepared an Easter vignette on a tray. I know you are going to love all of the fun ways to decorate for Easter, with just a tray and some pretty Easter decor.

If you’ve been following the tour, thanks for coming by from Common Ground! If you have come by directly, welcome to the tour.

This is the first tray tour I’ve done, and I’ve been having so much fun with it. I’ve been trying to push myself to try things that aren’t my usual “forte,” and it’s always so refreshing to give something new a try.

I call my tray an “introvert’s self care Easter tray.” 🙂 Some tea, some candy, and some calming inspiration. (Actually, though, I only had one pretty teacup, so it could just as easily be an Easter visit with a friend, just by adding another one!)

Easter on a tray spring decor

The tray is a thrifted one that I bought with the intent to upcycle it but haven’t gotten around to it yet. (Still trying to find out if I can decoupage over contact paper??) I do think the green adds some spring cheer, though!

I used things I already had, other than the candy. It is a little bit dangerous to have all of this candy around me, though!

The vintage Easter postcard is from my small collection. I have some other Easter ones, but ever since our move a few years ago, a few things still haven’t been found. (Which reminds me of a special gold bracelet my husband had given me years ago. When we moved, I didn’t want to put it in the pods, so I kept it out to “keep it safe,” and I haven’t seen it since. Still hoping it will turn up one day!)

Spring decor on a tray

The teacup was my husband’s grandmother’s – not super old, but special still. (Well, it’s from the ’90s, so maybe it is super old, depending on your age and perspective!) The candy dish was a wedding gift from a special aunt. I used it a while back in an Autumn vignette challenge.

Easter decorating

I made the simple little Easter card by rubber stamping and then embossing with gold tinsel embossing powder. I don’t really make cards too often anymore, but I still love my rubber stamps, especially the verses and nature ones. I mainly use them in my journals, now.

The teapot belonged to a neighbor from our previous neighborhood. When her husband passed, and she went into a nursing home, the family gifted me with the teapot.

Thanks so much for coming by! The next blog on the tour is My Hubbard Home. Be sure to stop there next, and don’t miss any of the other blogs on the tour. They’re linked below.

If you’d like to imitate the look of my tray, here are some ideas. These aren’t the exact same items I used, but I like them! (affiliate links)

    Hugs,

  2. So pretty Pam! I love that you chose items that have a special meaning for you. Your vintage Easter postcard looks gorgeous framed and I hope you find all the special things lost in the move! Frustrating! I’ve lost a few special things right here in the house somewhere. I’m hoping they will turn up when we move ourselves in the next few years. Your tray is perfect for an early morning cup of tea on Easter Day. Some quiet time to reflect sounds wonderful! So glad to be touring with you and I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend!

    1. Thank you, Denise! I appreciate the kind words. It really is frustrating to lose something when you know it has to be around the house, somewhere! I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend, too!

    1. Thank you, Katherine! The teapot is such a nice memory of our neighbors. One of my favorite little pieces. Thanks for hosting the tour! xo

  3. Such a sweet tray! I love that you called it “introvert’s self care Easter tray.” I love the sentiment behind it and all the sweet details. Happy to be touring with you today. Have a wonderful Easter. XO- MaryJo

  4. What a lovely idea, a tray of Easter treats for a little self pampering! The teapot is so special, and the teacup is so pretty, but I think my favorite element is the sweet framed Easter postcard, just adorable! I hope you find your gold bracelet and have a wonderful Easter Pam!

  5. Pam, I always lose something when I move! Hopefully, you will find your bracelet 😉
    The tray is lovely and so perfect for spring. I think you did an excellent job of going outside your usual style/decor. Trying something “different is always hard to do, but your end result is darling!
    Hugs,

  6. Pam, your tray details are delightful! Looks like some lovely pampering! I hope you find your bracelet. Pray to St. Anthony. He may just lead you to it.
    Happy Easter!

  7. Pam, it’s always lovely to pull together special things to give yourself a bit of pampering. The teapot and cup suggests a calm spring day, perhaps with some time to remember those they once belonged to. Chocolate of course is almost a necessity, or at least at Easter it is! Enjoyed touring with you! Have a happy Easter

  8. Hi Pam, The first thing I noticed was that adorable little vintage Easter card; so adorable. And yes, the Russel Stover’s Easter eggs. My favorite since I was a little girl. Sometimes a girl just needs a little chocolate! Hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend!

    1. Thanks so much, Debra. I just love vintage cards too. Russel Stover’s eggs have always been my favorite, too! I always had them in my Easter basket when I was little.
