Easter Decorating Inspiration & Party Reminder!


Ahh, Spring! What a joyous time of year to celebrate!

I love how the earth springs back to life after a sleepy Winter, with daffodils and tulips peeking up out of the ground, and birds returning to fill the air with their song!

It always seems like the new life of Spring symbolizes the new Life found in Jesus as we celebrate Easter!

:)

We will have family visiting us for Easter this year, and I found some lovely inspiration photos to share with you for fun...


So cheerful & fresh! LOVE this!



Tulips are a favorite Springtime flower of mine -- they look so pretty tucked in the Easter baskets like little eggs!


Who knew chocolate could look so elegant? :)
This would be so lovely on a sideboard or as a table centerpiece.


SO SO SO pretty! *sigh!* A "nest" full of flowers!!!


I think my favorite part of the pic above is the industrial looking wire basket they used!


A miniature Spring backyard! Kids would love to make this decoration!



You know I adore anything to do with birds! So lovely!!

What a pretty centerpiece this would be! I know we all love a great idea using a cloche!!



Simple & Sweet


Monograms & Jellybeans -- Love this idea!!

Hope you were as inspired by these photos as I was!

And DON'T FORGET:

Tomorrow (Saturday) is my very first Green Thumb Gardening Linky Party!

So, pleeeeease show up & link up for me, 'kay?!!!

Show off what's peeking up in your garden this Spring, or how your garden looked last year...a bouquet of flowers in your home...a garden project....playhouse....porch or patio...container plantings...birds or animals visiting your yard...tips or hints...front door wreath...flower photos...games the family plays in the backyard...design ideas...curb appeal...

Pretty much anything goes! :)

I'll set up the Linky later tonight!

Let's get set to have fun & get some Gardening Inspiration!!!!!

All those pictures are soooo cute! Sadly I can't decorate since we've sold the house. Yay that we sold the house but boo to moving! lol

Lovely decorations!They are all so cheerful :D I imagine the basket of chocolates would either disappear into my mouth or melt into a sludge lol.

Hi, Stacey! I have something I can write up tonight and link with you tomorrow. :) Exciting!!

I am kind of bummed that I haven't done more Easter decorating this year. I still need to go up to the attic and find my bags of Easter baskets...right now, it's mostly little things I have out, like my ceramic birds.

Hi Stacey!

Wonderful inspiration pics! I love the nest full of flowers and that jelly bean monogram is so so cute!

Your party sounds fun! I would join up but we are under about 6 inches of snow right now. Maybe next time!

XOXO

I'm joining the Easter parties on the 28th & 31st. Love that jelly bean monogram. Also like the bunny basket & bunnies in the grass, but I'm not sure they would last long here. ;0)
