Actually, I just wanted to show you my painted DIY upcycling vases made from small wine bottles from Blanchet, which will be my self-made table decorations for Easter breakfast. But then I got into the brunch topic so much that more and more food was on the table and I got bread and cakes and even baked small pieces of puff pastry (little tip: never take pictures of food on an empty stomach). It would have been a shame to simply tidy up the nicely laid table after taking the photos, so we had breakfast at the nicely decorated Easter table for dinner and drank delicious rosé wine from Blanchet with it. You have to try that too, it makes you feel a little bit like Pippi Longstocking.
The beautifully painted wooden eggs with folklore motifs that you can always find on the flea market served as inspiration for my upcycling vases. Do you know which one I mean? The vases are the splash of color on my table decorations for Easter.
I have to show you the puff pastry pieces because they go super fast and go perfectly with the Easter breakfast. I cut the finished puff pastry into squares, coated it with sour cream (with a little pepper, salt and lemon juice) and topped it with small tomatoes, avocado and spring onions. Bake in the oven at 200 degrees for 10-15 minutes and then add smoked salmon. Oh, cress came up with it later. My friend Nadine, who is the master of the little puff pastry things, would be proud of me 🙂.
- small bottles of Blanchet wine
- matt pastel colors that adhere to glass (e.g. from La Pajarita or Rayher)
- Acrylic paint
- thin brush
How to do it:
First you remove the label from the empty bottles (the best way to remove adhesive residues is with a dirt eraser from the drugstore – forget about nail polish remover!). Then paint the bottles with the pastel colors and let them dry well. Then you can paint the bottles with acrylic paints. The flower wreath and the Easter egg were really easy for me, but I had to nibble on the words “Happy Easter” because I have zero handlettering talent. If you want, you can finally spray the paint with clear varnish to fix it.
Now that the brunch theme is ticked off, I’ll be inviting my family to lunch at Easter. It’s good that the table decoration is already clear, then I can now think about the food …
All the best!
