I’m always excited for spring. I hope you stopped by earlier this month and checked out the vast array of ideas for the season via Project Design Now – Spring Mantles. There are some great ideas for decorating—and not just the mantle from the team of design enthusiasts that participated!
This beauty was one of my favorites…Ciao Newport Beach created the fresh, spring look
Spring brings some new bird friends to the area…I’ve spotted a blue bird on my walks, not as vibrant as this fellow, but still very pretty and we’ve had up to 6 Robin Red Breasts visit our birdbath at the same time!
For me spring always means spending more time in the garden. Warm days, cool nights. Sparkling sunshine (have you ever noticed how the light changes with the season. Spring has it’s own special, sparkly light).
The patio bed needed a major renovation. I’ve completed this space and will share a post about it, and other little changes in the garden, later.
It’s a dream of mine to be able to walk through my garden and come up with a bouquet as wonderful as this! I am growing sweet peas, I hope they provide me with bundles of blooms.
Easter eggs whether chocolate or real are a staple for Easter. There have been some really pretty ideas for dying eggs.
So if you haven’t dyed your eggs yet, visit HERE to receive step-by-step guidance on these beauties (above) and HERE for a general overview of how to dye Easter eggs.
Spring also brings with it the chance prepare a few more meals on the BBQ and to generally lighten up on the
mouth watering calorie laden casseroles. True confession, I still enjoy the occasional casserole even during the summer.
These lovely to look at tea sandwiches made me want to plan a spring tea party for a few friends!
This meal above is pretty typical of our traditional Easter dinner.
If you saw this recent post, you know I love to set a table. These charming Spring/Easter tables give me some ideas for the upcoming season.
How cute are these little bunny plates?
One last note, if you haven’t already filled an Easter basket with a few goodies for yourself, I’d like to mention the newest book by Kristen Woodson Harvey, Lies and Other Acts of Love which will be released April 5th. If you pre-order from the Design Chic blog site, you’ll automatically be entered to win a $1,000 gift card to Shop Design Chic their online store.
I’m excited to reviewing this wonderful book on April 5th right here.
What are you doing this season. Special plans for Easter Sunday? I wish you a happy spring and all the “new beginnings” it can bring, and a very happy Easter. ♥ Karen
