Happy Easter!

 


Happy Easter !

Looking forward to Easter and a visit from good friends.  I was excited to pull out the Easter/Spring decorations and get ready for the holiday and warmer weather.

The tray above is on our coffee table.  The beautiful Ukrainian Easter Eggs belonged to my dear mother-in-law.  I love that they are painted wood and there is not chance of them breaking when packed away.  The silk tulips are SO old...bought all the tulips you will see in this post probably 20 years ago at, believe it or not, Bath and Body Works.  The store near me was moving and they were selling the silk flowers at a great price.

This glass tulip plate always found a place in my kitchen window over the sink...since we moved I keep it near the porch window to catch the light.

This little bunny was a gift and she sits on the kitchen counter..

Some Target bunny pieces in the kitchen...


and Easter touches near the wine rack.

Simple centerpiece on the dining table.  I used Easter filler from Dollar Tree and put all this on a small tray I found at Ikea.  That way when we have guests and need space on the table for food I can quickly pick it up and move it.
The wreath on our door is several years old...bunny, tulips, and sparkle eggs are all from Dollar Tree.

A little bit of Easter at the foyer...


and over the fireplace.

The entry gets a Dollar Tree umbrella in the stand filled with Dollar Tree tulips, and the bunny is a cookie jar!  My mom and I found it probably 40 years ago at J. C. Penny for a few dollars on one of our epic, all day shopping trips.  I miss those days with her.

Since we will be having guests I added some bunnies and eggs to the Powder room...

And made sure there was a cute bunny tail guest towel there, too.
Now that the decorating is finished I am going to give our home a good cleaning and get the guest room ready for our friends.  Then grocery shopping and getting some meals prepped for the visit.   Our guests will leave the day before Easter.  We will be attending church, and then made reservations for Easter Brunch.  In between all this I am hoping to make a skirt to wear on Easter Sunday.  When cleaning out my sewing supplies I found a piece of fabric that would make a great skirt to go with a cardigan sweater set I found at Talbots.  I have not made any clothes in a LONG time...used to make an Easter Suit each year, but those days are gone.   Hoping that my sewing skills come back...I will keep you posted.
Wishing everyone a blessed and peaceful Easter.
Please let me know if you decorate for Easter, what recipes you make for Easter...I love to hear from you.  Until then - thank you for stopping by Our New Vista!
