Easter Revisited

The Day After Easter Post

We have not hosted a family Easter Day in at least a decade, we’ve always celebrated out of town at grandmas’.  It was so delightful to be able to cook and share our feast with three of our children and friends. Here was our menu:

Projects to Come:

Here are two projects that I am currently working – the “before”! Keep watching for their total makeovers!






Easter Runner and Tablescapes

DIY Table Runner

Today’s project was so easy and so fun.  I found two Pottery Barn Kids valance curtains at Goodwill for $2.99!  I instantly thought of Easter and a new runner that I could make by sewing them together.  The farm animals were adorable and were handmade, and the gingham border was perfect for spring. I had to cut off the rod pockets on top of each valance in order to sew the two sides together.  No hemming, no remeasuring, and so easy because they were exactly the same, bam! – done in 10 minutes.  Inspiration can come at any time, keep your eyes open for things around you!

Easter Tablescapes

Here are some Easter tablescapes that caught my eye while surfing the net.  I love all sorts of styles; chic, cute, elegant, springy, whimsical, brights, pastels, natural, and even cookies.  I wanted inspire you this holiday, which includes Passover and spring, to liven up your homes and smile with new ideas.  Enjoy the “eye candy”!
