This is the only Easter-specific decoration in our house. The wreath is a gift from my MIL (who is a holiday fiend...in a good way) and the candle is a gift with purchase from PartyLite. I wouldn't typically put such a pastel and spring-y candle anywhere, but this seemed to fit just right. Instead of hanging the wreath, I propped it up on a cake tray and popped the candle in the middle. Voila! Insta-decoration. And since it's just on our family room coffee table, I think it's festive without being over-the-top.
Last night, with not a whole lot to do that appealed to me and no TV to watch, I began making my Easter cards. I used to make cards like it was my mission, but actually haven't busted out the craft stuff once since moving into our new place. Anyways, I got to it last night while listening to a book on tape (yep-really) and here's the progress so far:
Also, here's the allrecipes.com recipe I'm going to be making to gift my loved ones with some delicious Easter treats :
Don't those look delicious?
And finally, one Friday afternoon a few weeks ago, I made up this Easter board. I'm not a "tea party" kind of person, or even a pastel person, but I don't mind it and occupied my mind for a little while one Friday afternoon:
Have a Happy Easter and enjoy lots of treats and QT with friends and family!
