My Sweet Easter

Oh my goodness!!  March has almost come and gone, and I’ve haven’t dedicated nearly half as much time towards Easter as I would have liked!  It seems as if this month truly came in roaring like a lion.  We’ve been on the go, go, go this March.  Hubby and I traveled to Boston earlier this month.  Hubby goes every year to the Boston Seafood Show, and this year, I tagged along too.  While he walked around all day looking at seafood and ventured back to the hotel each evening smelling like fried shrimp, I shopped and did touristy things, and came back very knowledgeable about all-things Boston.  And although everyone else in the city seemed positively over the snow, Hubs and I absolutely relished in the white stuff (that’s what growing up in one-season-only Florida will do)!

The rest of the month was dedicated to this and that (and all the catch up one must do when losing a weekend to vacation).  Ugh….so exhausting!

Last weekend, the Easter bins finally came down from the attic.  Short on time, with another trip around the corner, I focused on adding a few sweet touches of Easter to our home.  And while it is not what I originally imagined (my imagination tends to be way more grandiose), I have to say I am certainly pleased.

Easter Nest

I saw this on On Sutton Place a few years back, and absolutely fell in love with it.  I think it makes the sweetest Easter centerpiece.  I have used it every year in one way or another.

Whimsical Easter Basket

I adore anything woodsy and whimsical, and this little Easter Basket from World Market caught my fancy last Spring.  I filled it with some plastic eggs from Hobby Lobby and paper flowers from Michaels.

Individualized Place Settings

Wanting to incorporate Spring as much as I could in my tablescape, I bought these grape-vine napkin rings.  Instead of using them to wrap the napkin, I placed them horizontal like a nest and filled with white and blue eggs and spring flowers.

 Sweet Little Lambs

Found these fellows at Pier 1 last year.  They were seriously just too cute to pass up.

My White Rabbit

This guy joined my Easter Decor last year when I spotted him while shopping at Hobby Lobby (he was brown and sort of ugly).  I painted him all white using Anna Sloan’s Chalk Paint.  I love him!  I think he’s quite regal.

Other Little Details

My sister picked these precious salt and pepper shakers up at this very cool antique store in Atlanta.  I nestled them in their own little bed of moss on my silver three-tiered server (also found at the same antique store).  I figured the Easter Bunny would leave some jelly beans and chocolate treats here later on.

Not a lot, but just enough to make it sweet.

Happy Easter!
