Easter is so early this year that I’m barely over Valentine’s Day, our birthdays, and winter. Today is Good Friday already.
Slowly but surely I’ve got a little Easter décor going.
Our daffodils are blooming like crazy out in the yard so I’ve been handing them out and bringing them into the house in bunches.
I also thought the flowered pillows that I usually use on the porch would brighten up the living room until the weather truly warms up enough to enjoy some porch-time.
I whisked away the tea party mantel and replaced it with lots of Easter items like 2 wooden eggs that my son found when he was a young boy and we went to the Easter egg hunt on the White House lawn.
The eggs started out pinkish, then dark denim blue, and have now morphed into teal — they turn a little greener each day. Weird.
On the counter between the dining room and kitchen we have a duck basket with a Matryoshka egg — an egg with more nesting eggs inside — just waiting to be spied by an inquisitive child.
In the kitchen we have some bunny dispensers along with an Easter card.
In the mud room a not-very-Eastery spotted doggy espresso cup from our trip to Rome pairs with a recently received thank-you card.
On the porch I have a big ceramic bunny along with one of the lavender topiaries I’ve been trying to train.
On the other side of the porch is a solar froggy lantern that glows in the dark.
Alas, next week the chicks and ducks and bunnies will be stored for another year.
What’s next for your spring décor?
