Hi friends! It’s Easter week, and I just realized I never showed you our Spring and Easter Decor for this year. Actually, things have been so crazy around here that I just got around to putting on the finishing touches a couple of days ago. But better late, than never, right? Our decorations are very low-key and easy this year, but I wanted to show them anyway since recording your everyday life is part of the fun of blogging.
So here’s our entryway table. I made the chalkboard tray out of a thrift-store silver tray, and I just added a little welcoming message. Yes, I could have made the message more seasonal, but who knows how long the tray would remain that way, and I really didn’t want to have an Easter message still up around Halloween!
I just added some faux flowers, bunnies and some pysanky, or Ukrainian Easter eggs. I used one of my grandmother’s vintage Desert Rose bowls to hold the eggs.
In the dining area, I added some plates from the same set. I like to bring them out each spring, since they’re perfect for this time of year! The kids and I made the little Easter Tree a few weeks ago, and at first I had it in the entryway. But, I think it looks better with the pastel colors in the plates.
I think I told you all that I bought a new painting to hang over the fireplace, and here it is! We plan to redo the mantel later on and eventually add some kind of wall treatment, but the painting covers the area so well, and I got an awesome deal on it at Ross. Plus, it’s not uncommon to see people riding horses around here, so it’s pretty appropriate.
I showed you the painted plastic eggs, and I love the pops of blue so much that I’ll probably keep these up until summer. I just added some sequined eggs, a basket full of washi tape eggs and the foam Peeps bunnies we made last year. Easy peasy.
The little succulent pots will stay up after the holiday too. I made these for a contributor post at PinkWhen, and I just love the color. Now, I just have to keep the plants in good shape — total brown thumb here! And, here’s a close-up of one of the bunnies on the mantel.
See, I told you I was keeping it super simple this year. But really, sometimes simple works best, and it’s making it easier for mom this year! The kids also decorated our faux ficus trees with the foam eggs and crosses they made a few years ago, so we do have a little bit more color. But they can put those away themselves.
Thanks for joining our little mini spring and Easter decor tour. Have a super day!
