I was in Pottery Barn the other day, drooling over all the beautiful things. I came across a table decorated for Easter, and it was just so interesting and creative! So, I started looking at prices for all the goodies, and realized that unless these things went on serious sale, I wouldn't recreate the look. Basically, on the dining room table, they had a vase with several cherry blossom stems in it, with colorful, sparkly easter eggs hanging from the branches.
The next day, I was at Michael's looking for something totally separate, and I found some colorful, sparkly easter eggs for a fraction of the price! They also had some sparkly mini eggs. So, then I was on the hunt for cherry blossom stems. Not only were they WAY cheaper than at Pottery Barn, but they were 50% off! I also bought a vase to put it all in.
All in all, I spent about $30 to almost exactly duplicate this Pottery Barn look that would have cost over $200 (which is just outrageous).
