Hippity Hoppity




There is a little bit of Easter throughout my house, as I prepare for my daughters to arrive home this weekend. We will be having a small lunch on Sunday after mass, starting with mimosas and finishing with a new recipe for Mini Key Lime Trifles. I like to make things special for them and the Easter decor gives the house a festive feel, without being over the top. This boxwood and burlap bunny is indicative of the whimsical feel I try to create.


There are bright colors, bunnies and chicks popping out of their shells. I like to hang things in unexpected places, keeping with the whimsical theme. The Easter bunting that hangs from a baker's rack in my kitchen is easy to make, at the last minute, from brightly colored fabric and seasonal ribbon. No sewing is required and the directions can be found here.


More seasonal ribbon; this time chevron styled burlap, is casually tied around a grapevine wreath on my porch. It gives a subtle nod to the holiday and a welcoming touch.



Eggs of many textures fill nests placed here and there. If you have plastic eggs and twine, you can easily make these twine wrapped eggs, so pretty and sweet.

Happy Tuesday!
