Around the House:
With the exception of Christmas (when the whole house is decorated), I try to gather a couple little holiday pieces for each holiday which are primarily displayed in either our eating nook, kitchen and/or dining room areas. Last year I think we had precisely two bunnies on the decor front for Easter but with our second Easter in the new house, I've tried to pick up a few more things... not a lot by any measure.
Placemats: Target (old) / Easter Bunnies / Home Goods (old) / Easter Wreath: Michael's (available in stores)
All Easter Items: Michael's (available in store)
I'm not sure where the bunnies are from but the cute "Here's to Spring" want topper in the background can be found here. My mom gifted it to me one night when we were hosting dinner and it would be perfect to bring on a bottle of wine to Easter gatherings - or any spring event.
I just put out our Easter decor last week when I got back from Florida and it's most definitely not too late to pick up some extra things. As a bonus - three of the four items below are already on sale!
Hello Spring Banner
I love this because it will last from now until around Memorial Day. Anything that's seasonal is always better in my book.
Bunny Salad Plates
How cute are these? A weekends of mine is definitely appetizer plates. In my defense, I'm always using them though. I love putting out cocktail sized plates for people to load up their appetizers onto so they don't have to just hover over the table.
A perfect centerpiece, accent, etc. You could pair these together, use them separately or get a few of just one of the colors - I'm eyeing a couple of the yellow ones.
Easter Egg Garland
I think it wouldn't be too hard to find a special spot for these pastels.
On the Table:
I still like sticking to tradition and celebrating holidays as we always have and for Easter that's church followed by a big brunch at a restaurant, venue, the country club, etc. afterwards. A new tradition that Derek and I started last year is to host an Easter Eve dinner the night before which we are continuing again this year. This year will be pretty similar to last year's menu (can be found here) with the usuals like baked ham, macaroni and cheese, broccoli salad as well as a few tweaks - it's always fun to try some new things.
One thing on the menu for sure? The Cadbury Cream Egg Trifle that I made for dessert last year - delicious!
I've wanted to try bacon wrapped asparagus and I've never seen the touch of the crescent roll before but I don't hate it.
We may already be having mac and cheese but I do like a lot of sides so people can pick their pleasure. I also usually line up tupperware containers on the counter after dinner so everyone can take a little bit home.
This would be a great smaller item to serve along with the ham
I've actually never made my own deviled eggs - either just enjoyed my grandma's or cheated with the pre-made ones at the store. I didn't even really like the filling until recently. Avocado tastes great with everything so it couldn't hurt to add it into the mix.
Using peeks as a drink topper? Sounds perfect to me.
Chocolate covered strawberries are the perfect little dessert to add to the dessert table and after seeing this I think I'll definitely be running to Target to pick up one of those chocolate bunnies to add to the display.
Using eggs as a vase filler is the perfect touch for when using fake flowers. I'm hoping to find some nice tulips before Easter and if not, this could be a good backup.
A good tablescape is always key and having a little treat basket for each person to take home with candy to enjoy later could be the perfect extra touch. I might try to find mini Easter baskets though or something a little softer.
