Favorite Easter Ideas 2017

It’s hard to believe that Easter is just three weeks away.

A few years ago my kids told me to “Stop it with the Easter baskets and hunts Mom.” Sniff, boo hoo.

I am a firm believer that Easter baskets can be for everyone. I wouldn’t say “No” if one of these gems showed up at my front door.

I might just need to plant some wheat grass.

A vintage book and watering can? Yes please!

I also would truly love a drawer full of moss.

Also, give me all the pink tulips and cast iron bunnies for my front porch!

Decorate your outdoor space with beautiful spring flowers:

However this carrot door décor is also darling. You can read the “How To” HERE.

Since I no longer have a need for the sackfulls of plastic eggs in my attic I am thinking about transforming them into a garland.

Decorate a staircase, mantel or table with an Easter egg garland. How-To: http://www.bhg.com/holidays/easter/decorating/decorate-with-easter-eggs/#page=7:

all the German Town's decorate their fountain with these garlands and eggs. It is so beautiful. I love it!:

Easter Egg Table Garland        Create this pretty blue-and-green Easter egg garland by stringing together about three dozen dyed blown-out eggs. To blow out an egg, use a pushpin to put a hole in each end. Gently push a wooden skewer through one end to enlarge the hole and break the yolk. Blow into the smaller hole to push out all the yolk and white. Use a bead-making needle threaded with a narrow ribbon to connect the eggs to display on your dining table for Easter.:

This book page bunny created by Anne With An E is simple and sweet.

Does anyone else get inspiration from catalogs they receive in the mail? I always find something to adore by Williams Sonoma.

I must have blue on the brain because I love this table setting too.

I am SO hooked on Easter decorating! These are all so pretty and fun, but then so is this season when the world starts coming to life again after the long winter! Thanks for the great ideas. (I have some of those plastic eggs too that I've been getting ready to foof up for whatever! The garland is a great idea!)

Its so much fun to decorate for Easter after the grey-ness of March weather. So many pretty baskets and fun trims on your post. I use to find a waterproof tin or container and line it with plastic so I could fill it with potting soil. I didn't worry too much about drainage since it wasn't too deep and it was only a temporary display. On the top I sprinkled oat seeds (not oatmeal! lol) since they come up very fast and have a nice green colour. Grass seeds should work just as well though. Once they started coming up I added a little white wooden fence and some plastic eggs and ornaments. Nothing the dampness could damage. Everyone enjoyed watching for the oats to grow and see the decorations to be added. And it was always a treat for where we live to see the grass growing, since our yard is still covered with quite a bit of snow.
Thanks for sharing your spring inspiration. Time for me to get my stuff out and ready for the bunny! :)

Thank you Laura, for collecting these wonderful images. I will be doing a little Easter decorating and have some great ideas in mind from these here.

Love these ideas! They've inspired me to get going on creating some Easter décor.

On another note, aren't the bluebonnets spectacular this year? Absolutely gorgeous!

Beautiful ideas, Laura! Each one!
Does one get too old for an Easter basket? I think not! For years when I first married, I made a basket for my husband. He didn't find it all that touching, so I guess I just stopped making up one for him. Then a few years ago, the most wonderful Easter basket filled with wonderful little gifts arrived by post to my front door. It was from a a sweet friend who lives out of state. I was so touched! She confided in me that she loved to make up Easter baskets. The following year, I decided I should make an Easter basket for her. She again sent me one that year and now the two of us have an ongoing tradition of gifting each other with an Easter basket. It's sorta like Christmas stockings. Why shouldn't an adult have an Easter basket?
I have fun looking for special little gifts to include in the basket. I have this year's all ready to mail.
I think your two children should rethink the Easter basket think. ;-)
