On Sunday I started decorating for Spring and Easter. I love Spring colors, well really any color that could make this nasty Wisconsin weather seem cheerful. I usually decorate my buffet table in the kitchen for holiday/seasonal stuff. That's my designated area to do what I want with. But Spring is different, I have different decorations that can't just be displayed or lined up on the buffet table without it looking like a garage sale. So I take over the mantle and parts of our shelves in the living room. I spread it all out, and as my husband would say "litter my stuff all over."
As I was decorating I realized I had nothing for the buffet table, oddly enough. So I pulled out my wide mouth glass hurricane I purchased from Goodwill so many years ago. I had extra floral strands I was going to use with a candle, but decided to put some plastic Easter eggs to use.
So I just dumped the eggs into the hurricane and hoped for the best. Honestly, it has taken me a while to warm up to the plastic factor going on in there. But overall I like it, and it brings a pop of color to our boring beige kitchen. Plus, after Easter in a couple weeks I will change the eggs out and probably use the floral strands with the candle.
Easy peasy, 1, 2, voila Easter decor...
