Last month I shared ideas for an early spring welcome at the front entrance (). With Easter around the corner, I have introduced some seasonal accents to modify the early spring décor, and introduce an Easter theme. Take a look:
Marble eggs in pastel colors(JoAnn’s) were nestled in the various planters for a nod to Easter that is subtle yet sophisticated. Pastel ribbon was added to each planter while the wreath was kept without ribbon adornment.
This wreath(JoAnn’s) is a favorite of mine. I layered it over a second wreath of berries on a gravevine form for a bulkier wreath, with the second wreath giving the illusion of a nest. I simply connected the egg wreath to the second wreath by tying it with tendrils of that wreath at about 6 points.
Our mudrrom entrance, just to the right of our front entrance is also dressed up for an Easter welcome. Metal rabbit statuary was given a more prominent place in the décor(Smith Hawkins and Takashima).The seating area is beckoning and festive for a relaxing spot on the porch with stuffed rabbits cozying up in the inviting wicker chairs. A basket with a ceramic chicken and some eggs in a bed of sphagnum moss continue the theme in another planter.
“The spring came suddenly bursting upon the world as a child bursts into a room with a laugh and a shout and hands full of flowers.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Happy Easter! And welcome!
