Easy DIY - Vintage Pillowcase Tablerunner

We had a few family members over on Easter Sunday, and, even though I rarely get into tablescaping, I do enjoy it on a few occasions, such as this one.  Since I do not own any many fancy plates or table linens, I decided to improvise with two adorable pillowcases, which I found at Goodwill a few weeks ago.  They were perfect, since they had that delicate, Spring-esque look to them.  Here's how my table turned out.

Yep!  That's two pillowcases.  No need to sew.  I just brought them together in the middle, and then I created a very simple centerpiece to make it look not so obvious.  Some silk flowers that I've owned forever, a clipping from one of my mom's plants in a vase, a candle, and an empty candle holder filled 1/4 of the way with shells from the Florida coast!

Everything was Tigre approved.
