Easter Inspirations

Easter is this Sunday!  Did you know that?  That’s a mere four days from now!!!  I am starting to hit panic mode as I am helping my mother’s church with their Easter breakfast and guess who’s in charge of the décor?  You guessed it.

But I am having designer’s block (you know, like writer’s block, but with décor!)  So I have done what any reasonable lady would do, and it’s off to Pinterest!

My first thought was doing something like these tissue flowers, then adding some real blooms and greens around the room with them. They seem simple enough.  It’s cost effective and I could clear out some of the mountains of tissue paper that I have stored down in my basement, it’s a win-win!  However, my flowers flopped.  It’s okay, I can admit when I failed, and I failed with these.

So it’s back to the décor board! It is like a jungle out there, idea after idea, the good, the bad and the ugly.  I continue to scour through waiting for some great inspiration to strike me…

I love these ideas, so fresh and cute and they make me think warmer weather might actually be on the way! As a bonus, any design that incorporates aqua automatically has my attention!  However, these do not seem practical to replicate on large round tables, they would be lost. I have more than one table to decorate! That’s the trouble with clusters of arrangements; you have to make them big to have a big impact on a big table.

The real problem is this isn’t a styled photo shoot where we can play pretend and just photograph it from the right angle.  This, my friends, is real life.  And things here tend to be a bit trickier.

I’ll leave you today with a pretty picture of what I wish my Easter table could look like and I am off to do some shopping.  I will be sure to share the results (good or bad!) next week!

I have a few other spring ideas that have inspired me, you can see them on my Spring Fling Pinterest board.  Have a great Wednesday!
