Setting the Stage for the Easter Bunny!

It is so inspiring to decorate our house with the changing seasons and holidays.  It’s something we look forward to all the time (mostly just me and the minis, but the hubby does likes to look at it, he’s just not into doing it!)  
– – –  
With Easter not too far away, it’s time to set the stage for the Easter Bunny!
Here’s a little house tour…
– – –  
– – –  
Love speckled eggs.
They remind me of being a kid, and checking the bird nests at the farm with Grandpa.

Easter Egg & Burlap Staircase Garland

I had these strings of eggs for a couple of years and didn’t really know what to do with them.
So I used some burlap garland to string them up on our banisters.  Simple.  Pretty.

My Easter Yarn Ball & Twig Garland has it’s home on my mantle.
It’s all that’s really needed up there.

Well, except for maybe a feather & egg wreath.  (Gasp!  I did not make this one.)

I love our built-ins – they provide so much space for decorating fun!
Bird houses and birds are too cute.

It’s not Easter decorating without bunnies.

I like things simple.

– – –   
Love my seasonal table…oooh the possibilities.

I hope you enjoyed my little abode.  I love this time of year!
Happy Decorating!

    Love the neutral tones of the egg garland on the stairwell and the burlap bows. I also really like the display in your coffee table.
