I’ve always been a bit of a rebel. I like the idea of rebelling against norms that don’t fit, whether that be on a societal or individual level. That might be why I’ve often found myself drawn to punk rock style, and why I recently found myself motivated to incorporate this style into one of my new Easter parties – what’s more rebellious than doing a punk rock Easter?! I wanted to keep things fun and cute, which is where the gnome comes in. I was thrilled that my friend Cris from Tiniki Studio wanted to collaborate with me on this idea. She came up with the cutest and coolest Punk Rock Gnome Party printables and her gnome is inspired by ZZ Tops member, Billy Gibbons! Read on to see how I set it all up!
First, I created a fun colorful gingham plaid DIY backdrop using colored masking tape. Plaid is a punk rock clothing staple and I was inspired by colorful gingham Easter dessert plates and napkins that I found at Target. I thought the Spring colors would look fantastic as a larger version of it on my wall.
I started with the vertical lines in a repeating pattern of pink, orange, yellow and blue, using a ruler and a level to make sure the lines stayed mostly straight and evenly spaced out. Then, I repeated that same pattern, also equally spaced, in a horizontal direction over the top of the vertical lines. Voila! An amazing and colorful Easter backdrop.
Here is a quick video showing how I did it.

On top of the masking tape, I added three adorable custom printed Punk Rock Gnome Easter signs from Tiniki Studio. They combined three of my favorite things: gnomes, puns, and a bit of rebellious attitude!
Snack & Dessert Table
Underneath the backdrop, I set up my snack and dessert table. I used a white table and added a couple of wipe off colorful gingham placemats from the same range at Target. On top of these, I set out a pink and blue cake stand to elevate the food. I also added some punk rock gnome-labeled favor bags to each side of the table. These are filled with sweet Easter candies!
On one cake stand, I set out DIY punk rock gnome boxes filled with popcorn.

On the other, cupcakes in cute pink toadstool containers and topped with black studs and cute gnome and lighting bolt toppers.
Next, I set my main table! I used a larger white table, and sprinkled pastel confetti from Festive Fetti across the center to create a fun runner.
I added a few pastel Easter eggs and some printed pink toadstools from the party printable pack.
Plus, a couple of really cute and punk rock Gnome Centerpieces filled with more Festive Fetti confetti. Keep an eye out for a blog post coming soon with instructions for creating these rockin’ gnomes!
For my place settings, I layered the gingham Easter dessert plates on top of pink dinner plates. I added a gingham Easter napkin and a plastic yellow fork embellished with a safety pin – a symbol of punk rock rebellion. Finally, each place setting got a plastic pink wine glass and a cookie with a “Rock On Easter” topper.
