A Little Easter Decorating

(Warning: long post, I know, but a can't contain my excitement)

The past couple days have been a whirlwind of activity for me as I packed and prepared the girls to go on spring break with grandma and grandpa. Yesterday I completed everything I needed to and had the need to decorate.

I know it is a little early for Easter decorations but I just couldn't decide if I wanted spring decorations or Easter decorations. Since I my spring decorations are still in the works and will blend into my summer decorating, I went ahead with my Easter decorations.

I started with my hutch. Adding bunnies, eggs and birds. I really like how it turned out.
Here is a closer view. I've noticed in the pictures it seems a little cluttered for my taste but in real life it seems much better, and I like the way it turned out.
Added some paper eggs that I painted, a little leftover basket grass from last year and a bunny, very cute I think.
Here are my little birdhouses from a previous post. I liked it but thought it needed some dimension, so I lifted a couple up on a stack of CD cased wrapped in pretty paper(couldn't find a book the right size). I think it turned out ok. Would love to have a sign behind the birdhouses but have not found the right one yet.
This shelf I love. Love the stack of books with the birdhouse on top and love, love, love the bird print. I purchased a digital brush kit from Designer Digitals, changed the color, printed it out, added some pretty paper and ta-taaaa a cute little spring delight.
Here is a close up. Don't you just love it.
To my dinning table I added a urn filled with more leftover basket grass and some adorable spotted eggs I picked up at JoAnne's. Placed that on a plastic vinyl place mat I fell in love with also from JoAnnes.
Here is a close up. I think I need to add a tray under the urn or something. It seems a little unfinished to me but I haven't come up with the solution yet so it will have to work for now.

In the living room I added these bird prints and these lovely "fake" flowers. I just love the color and am trying to add it around the house for spring. Isn't it great!In the kitchen I added this cute tree and bunny and lots of jelly beans (my favorite) and I think it adds just a touch of Easter to the room.
So there you go, my house decorated for Easter. Glad it is done.

  1. It all looks so cute. I love the egg tree. Is that what it is or did you use one of the metal coffee cup holders? I need to go thrifting, I wanna make one. I also like the white finial things on the bookshelves!

  3. Christina, I purchased the tree three years ago but added the beaded eggs this year. The white finials I made from a candle stick and a finial from Micheals.
