Easter is nearly here, and I've added a few touches of Easter decor to our home.
Our dining room table holds my mother's Easter egg collection. My mom died in 1999, so this collection is very special to me.
This year I have the eggs resting right on the tabletop. Instead of my usual blue and white planter, I've used an Easter basket to hold a plant. Plus I added a little friend to the greenery--can you see him?
Some crystal candlesticks finish off the simple tablescape.
The table in our breakfast room is not a good spot for centerpieces, since it's usually being used for eating, homework, or LEGO building (or all three!). So the dough cabinet that stands beside the breakfast table is a favorite spot for holiday decor.
Simple elements make up this tablescape--fresh flowers, jelly beans in antique jars, an Easter bunny and a LEGO Easter basket on one side:
On the other side, I've placed an Easter egg tray, some antique bunnies, and my Easter candles. (Click here to see how I made the candles from pretty napkins.)
As a final touch I added this wonderful cross sent to me by my wonderful friend Dawn from Beyond Grace. Recently she sent me a package filled with wonderful goodies; this cross was one of them. If you don't already know Dawn, you should check out her blog. Her writing will inspire you!
