Easter Around the House!

As promised, I decorated the house over the weekend for Easter. I am proud to say, I only made two trips to Michael’s Arts & Crafts for all my projects – that is a success my friends! Usually I make a list, check it all off and forget one small thing and have to go back. Or, I get to the store and end up purchasing all new materials for a totally different project. That place has a way of sucking me in.

Moving on to our decorations! Our first Easter decoration can be found as you enter the front door of our home!

All of the spring flowers at Michael’s are 40% off, so I was able to make this wreath super cheap. I love the pops of yellow and purple.

Oh, and want to see the awesome picture text I received from my Mother-in-Law yesterday?


Our faux fireplace mantel in our living room was in desperate need of decoration. For the left side of the mantel, I filled apothecary jars with moss and Easter eggs – all found on sale
at Michael’s.

For the right side, I picked up a new ceramic vase on sale from Michael’s {for $9} and added a bouquet of
flowering branches from Trader Joes. I can’t wait to see these little guys blossom! 

 I also added a few little Easter twigs to my fern that sits in the kitchen.

 And of course, no Easter is complete without lots and lots of candy around the house…

Speckled peanut butter M&M’s, pastel Lifesavers and speckled Cadbury eggs. Sadly, this dish was empty within a day and a half. We do not do well with candy dishes in our house.

I also have to throw in a fun Easter dessert I made this weekend…

Everything looks so cute! I love all the pastel colors! Your wreath turned out amazing! How sweet your MIL made one, too! I am in the process of making a simple wreath that I can keep up till late summer. It's exhausting switching out wreaths for every season! haha Oh and my hubby always steals my candy "for guests" so I am always buying more! lol I just bought a bag of jelly beans and they are almost gone. I was hoping they would last till Easter :)

I absolutely love the white vase you bought from Michael's. Thank goodness there's one right down the street from me because I think that's where I'll be headed right now. ~Elisabeth
