Easter Ideas: 10 Fab Decor Finds

With Easter just 3 weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about Easter ideas!

By now, you probably know that I’m all kinds of crazy about seasonal decorating. Every season has it’s own beauty, but I find that Easter decorating is especially good for the soul.  After a long winter, who can resist pretty pastel colors and sweet baby animals?  Seriously, it’s a no brainer! I recently took a spin around some of my favorite online decor stores, and I was smitten with pretty much all the pretty Easter ideas I found. (I wish I could buy it all!) Here are a few of my faves.

So. Apparently, it’s Spring.

You know…that season between Winter and Summer where tulips begin to peek through the soil? Kinda like this…

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not bitter. I’m totally happy for any of you who are basking in Spring weather. (OK, so maybe that was written with a hint of sarcasm ;-).)

But this particular Winter it’s been seriously never-ending.  I think Mother Nature is enjoying all this ‘Frozen’ hype just a little too much.

Even after two weeks of beach and sunshine (thank you Florida), my sanity is still hanging in the balance. READ MORE

Container Gardening Planter Ideas: 10 Fun Ideas for Flowers!

Oh how I’d love to have a beautiful overflowing garden of brightly colored flowers!  But, I might as well be honest, I don’t have a green thumb. Container gardening has always been more my pace. It’s just so much more…well…contained.  I do well with ‘contained’. I even managed to keep this basket of flowers on my front door alive last summer which was my first real gardening triumph. (Shoot for the stars, right?!?)

I’m not sure if it’s just a psychological thing, but gardening in containers just seems less overwhelming than tending to a large garden.You can make it as easy or as complex as you want.  Me?  I make it easy. Throw in pre-mixed soil from a bag. Water it.  Watch it grow. And, if by chance it doesn’t, move it to a better spot.

Easter Decorating Ideas: How to make a wreath for Easter, Shabby Chic-Style!

I love coming up with new Easter decorating ideas.  But sometimes, what you imagined in your head when you started a project, ends up being a whole lot different in reality.  Sometimes ‘different’ means it ends up prettier than you imagined. Those projects are the best, aren’t they?!? But, sometimes, ‘different’ can mean that it doesn’t quite live up to… Read More

Easter Decorating Ideas: Decorate a Simple Easter Mantel!

If you have a mantel, shelf, or console table, you don’t have to look far for Easter decorating ideas.  A few weeks ago, I decorated amy fireplace mantel for Spring (my Singing in the Rain Spring Mantel below) which I fully intended to keep around through Easter.  But while de-cluttering our storage closet a few days ago, I came across my stash of… Read More
