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.

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 made sure to use a basket with almost the same diameter bottom as the mouth of the urn.

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!

  17. ooops, I wasn't done talking! I hit 'enter" & it closed off my comment???
    Anyway, the inside of your home is just as lovely as the outside. I will keep that trick for anchoring the bunny in mind for next time I want to add something creative to an arrangement. I'll be turning every such purchase upside down to look for a hole before I buy it! LOL

    1. I empathize, sorry for the late response also...when I first wrote this post, for some reason, I was unable to respond to these comments! Thank you so much for stopping by, and happy shopping!

  18. Such beautiful spring touches outside and inside your home! Your Easter table is just lovely, and your centerpiece--oh my! The soft yellow and cream flowers with the blue and white transferware is just stunning. Thanks so much for sharing with us all at Vintage Charm :)
