Happy spring, friends! Can you believe Easter is just around the corner?! I'm so excited to have the opportunity of teaming up with a group of amazingly talented bloggers for the Easter Parade Blog Hop! You're sure to find some fabulous Easter decor inspiration as you "hop" through! If you're joining me from Sheila's blog, Maison de Cinq, welcome! I'm so happy you're here! I have to say that Easter is one of my favorite times of year. Of course I love the cute little bunnies, the Easter egg hunts, the pretty pastels, and the chocolate eggs, but most of all I love what Easter means. I love the hope it brings. I love the freedom it brings. I love that I am a new creation because Christ died for me. I love how the spring season coincides with the Easter story of new life and renewal. My daughter has a sweet little Easter book that we read to her every year. In the book the papa bear shows his son an Easter egg, explaining to the little cub that it's a symbol. It helps us to remember that just as the shell cracks open and a chick comes out, we remember that Jesus was in a tomb, but he didn't stay dead (God Gave Us Easter by Lisa Tawn Bergen). He rose! That is what I love about Easter.
Now, coming back around to those pretty pastels and cute little bunnies I mentioned before, I'm going to take you through some of my favorite areas of my home that I've prettied up for Easter. My décor generally stays pretty neutral, but Easter is a great excuse to pull in some happy spring color, and I took full advantage of the opportunity. Keep in mind that at the end of this post you will find the blog links for the lovely ladies that I've teamed up with who are going to take you on Easter tours of their homes as well. I hope you'll stay and follow along! You're sure to find some beautiful Easter decorating ideas!
If you've followed me on Instagram or on my blog for any amount of time, you've probably realized that this is one of my favorite areas in my home to decorate. It's so easy to change out the pillows and décor to reflect the different seasons and holidays. To make this space Easter ready, I added to my spring pillows the sweet little bunny pillow and swapped out my boxwood wreath for my robin's egg wreath. Some fresh hydrangeas in an olive bucket finished it off. Simple but pretty.
Can I just say that I love tablescapes? I don't always have the time or the energy to pull them together, but it's definitely something I enjoy. For my dining table I brought in some soft color. I know, I'm as shocked as you are ;). Hey, I said I love pastels, didn't I? I wanted a pretty tablescape with a little bit of whimsy, so I started with a cute, colorful table runner then arranged some fresh flowers in a white pitcher. I added in some sweet little porcelain bunnies and some large, pink glass Easter eggs, filling in with some greenery and a few smaller eggs. Finally, for the place settings, I used my favorite metallic woven chargers and pulled in soft teal napkins tied up with pretty pink peony napkin rings. The result is a softly colorful, whimsical tablescape that is perfect for Easter gatherings
My kitchen island is one of those places in my home where I always like to have something pretty, whether it be a done up tiered tray or a vase of fresh flowers, it really dresses up the kitchen. Right now I'm kind of loving my industrial looking flower vase, so it has been gracing my island for the past few months. To add a little touch of Easter, I pulled in a small, white vase of fresh flowers, in addition to my usual white hydrangeas, and some more cute little bunnies. The little bunny pedestal tray is my favorite :).
