I like Easter. It is a fun family holiday for us involving quality play time with close friends and family and lots of good food. As always I tend to be more on the laid-back side with my decorations. But a few things are definitely a must for Easter. Like the silk carrots in our chandelier.
I love birds nests as part of my tabletop decor.
I always have long rows of wheat grass (adorned with eggs) on the dining table.
These handmade sheep also take center stage every Easter. They are made in Washington state but they feel so lovely and Swedish to me.
Here are some other lovely decorations I have come across.
Ok this I must try on my own buffet table. Fresh veggies, especially carrots, as decor. Better than flowers. They can be used the next day in a meal!
Spring branches are a given for Easter (also at my house).
I have never quite figured out what to do with those mini, yellow fluff chicks you see in every crafts store. But this wreath might be the answer!
Note to myself. I must learn how to fold my linen napkins into bunnies.
For the Easter goodie bags. Just place a bunny tail on a brown paper bag. Simple and cute.
There. Hopefully some easy and inspirational Easter decorations.
I found most of the images on Pinterest. I must be the last person in blog land to have joined the movement. Ha! (I signed up a few weeks ago. Yeah, yeah, I know). I was so opposed to it because I did not want “yet another thing” to do in front of the computer. But it is growing on me. I find it quite handy actually.
For those of my readers who might not know, Pinterest is a rapidly growing social-media base where people research and pin inspirational images (fashion, decor, party ideas, home improvement etc), on virtual pin boards. A good and quick way to get tons of inspiration for yourself and to share with others.
You can follow my personal pin boards with here, if you are interested.
Today you will find me joining these fun parties. Thank you ladies!: The Girl Creative, Skip To My Lou, The Southern Institute, Making The World Cuter, Coastal Charm, A Sroll Thru Life & A Diamond In The Stuff.
