Happy Easter

Easter is perhaps my favourite holiday of the year. We get a full four days off work to relax and enjoy time with family and friends... and it doesn't have the pressure that the lead up to Christmas can have. No need to stress about presents or a perfectly cooked Christmas Lunch! Easter is a little more laid back: Throw a casual brunch or  pop some seafood on the table with salad and a glass of wine and you're set!
(Plus you can keep the kiddies busy for hours by hiding some eggs in the yard... and pretending there's still more to find!)

While Easter is laid-back, it doesn't mean you can't put some effort into the decorations. In fact, it's a time that offers many fun opportunities for your table or garden! Here's some that we really like this year:

Martha Stewart
These egg-shells (thanks to Martha Stewart) make great vases for mini flower arrangements. A really sweet Easter centrepiece idea!

Sticking to the egg theme, painted eggs could be used to display name tags / place-settings for your table. Or, as in the picture above, you could create little sayings for your friends ala fortune cookies! A third way to use this idea: tiny notes from Easter Bunny!

Go over to PoppyTalk for the full post and a  tutorial on how to make these. They are packaged in the cutest little box and the note says: "You're and eggstra special chick". How adorable!

Bunny-fold napkins! A fun and simple way to add a touch of Easter to your table! We found this pic over at Urban Comfort. They have tonnes of other Easter Inspiration ideas too, so head on over for a look!

Hostess with the Mostess
Don't leave the decorating ideas on the table. Why not add some in the garden too? A couple of simple blackboard signs and bunnies make for cute touches, while providing a helping hand for the kids hunting for eggs!

Finally, we love this idea for presenting Easter Treats. A great decorating idea.. and a lovely way to present an Easter gift for your friends!


We're so inspired by these lovely ideas that we're going to spend some time doing our own Easter DIY. We'll be sure to share some photos with you.
We'd love to hear any special Easter decorating ideas that you have too!

Happy Easter!
