Adding the Final Touches For Easter
Hello, friends! Thank you for stopping by to say hello for a few minutes today. I am so glad the kiddos are beginning Spring Break, so we can spend some much-needed time together! Earlier today, I spent a bit of time putting together the finishing touches for our Easter Sunday celebration. Just a bit of tweaking here and there...nothing too complicated, will make for a sweet time that is enjoyable and relaxing. I hope you enjoy the post!
More Flowers For the Entry
I recently shared the tutorial for very simple baskets which I have hung on my front doors.
I made sure to use a basket with almost the same diameter bottom as the mouth of the urn.
To make the entry even more welcoming, I added another arrangement indicative of the Spring season. I began on my little garden pillar. I added a large urn. On the urn, I set a large rustic basket.
I have filled the basket with colorful blooms such as lilacs, lilies, daffodils, delphinium, grasses, et cetera...
and a sweet little bunny.
Isn't he cute?
To anchor him, I simply used a bamboo skewer. I pushed the skewer into a tiny hole in the bottom of Mr. Cottontail
and placed it into the basket.
There's nothing like flowers for Easter!!
Setting The Table With Flair
For this year's Easter Tablescape, I am keeping things simple with a beautiful palette of fresh spring color.
Fresh white linen, crisp blue,
and soft, springy yellow,
makes for an elegant yet low-key setting.
A simple centerpiece of ample flowers in antique English Crockery,
sweet dessert forks,
and silver flatware
completes and compliments the setting.
I hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather and bounty of Spring!
