Decorations for Easter
Easter Eggs in a Plant
Decorating for this Important Spring Holiday
I have never done much decorating for the Easter Holidays. After buying Easter baskets for the kids, Easter cards for relatives, dressing the family for Easter services, followed by a special family meal, my plate was full. As an empty nester, I have more free time to decorate for those special times of the year.
I recently came across some great Easter decorating ideas to share. With some fresh ideas, who knows what interestingt creations could emerge next Spring!
My favorite find for the season was a beautiful green ivy plant with styrofoam eggs artistically placed throughout the greenery. It seems like such an easy project to complete, but one worth the time as it is such so warm and cheerful. Place this plant in an entry area to welcome visitors!
