It’s Easter weekend this weekend, and I’ve been busy with final preparations of packing for a four day weekend away. While I won't be at the Casa for Easter you know I do like certain holidays to add touches to the Casa. I think people wonder why I do this, since many don't decorate anymore. I think I do it for several reasons. It is fun to change the décor around, and it gives a reference to the time of year. It always keeps the home fresh from not getting bored by it. One of the things I like to do in spring and for Easter, is add pretty plants and cut flowers to my home’s décor. Fresh cut flowers bring life to every room, and also make one more happy when indoors I believe. I also include some of what were my grandmothers old Easter decorations. You know I get sentimental. Here's what spring currently looks like in my bijoux apartment.
My side table is adored with white cherry branches and a real birds nest that I found years ago. I have several real nest, and love to decorate with them. A sign of renewal and birth for spring.
Some tulips and ranunculus, my favorite flower of all.
Are there any flowers more happy then daffodils??? We have tons of them around the Casa.
In the kitchen the bar is fully stocked and we find some curly pussy willow in the urn.
The apothecary's are all filled with nest and eggs of all kinds. The beaded eggs are very old vintage ones that were a gift from the Dame. I hung a few on some white witch hazel branches
The rabbit and chick were my grandmothers and always remind me of Easter mornings in my wee years. I stuck the rabbit in another little nest.
How about these word cue cards on the fridge. Of course the Lads mind always head dirty!!! A vintage shop find.
My boudoir is my haven away from the world, and I could just as easily hibernate there all winter. I do believe I could be a professional lounger. Sometimes I think it is too comfy!!! One will see my trademark peacock feathers...a sign of Hera. I'll have you know all the eyes watch over everything.
Another mixture of Daffodils on the night table.
My one last lone orchid still blooming.
Sunday, I made another batch of Hot Crossed buns before the jig is up.
Not Hot Crossed Buns.
Just wanted to see if you were paying attention.
Now ...how about a glass of wine for the evening?
Do you decorate for Easter or bring fresh flowers in the house for spring?
