simple easter ideas

Minimalist Easter, wooden egg ideas via seejaneblogAre you feeling the itch for spring? Easter is one month from today! And to help get you in the mood – I gathered up a few of my favorite ideas from the past couple of years! 


regardless of the presence or type of faith in one’s life, i feel Easter simply represents spring, and life. arriving appropriately when things are hatching and blooming and green is finally awakening under blankets of melting snow. it just seems right… to celebrate life and to include family and friends in those celebrations.

we are not seeing the signs of spring here in new england {yet}, since we woke up to a fresh six inches of snow this morning. {ugghhh…} however, we are still starting our spring traditions and this year with something new – an easter egg decorating party!

we invited a dozen mommas + their kiddos to join us for an evening of egg decorating and dinner.

the hipstamatic run-down of our easter egg-dyeing tradition…

maybe you all know this… but, using food coloring + vinegar/water works wayyyyy better than those little tablets you buy in kits. yeah. i didn’t know that, till this year. and our eggs are more gorgeous than eva!

i live for holidays & special events. so, easter is no exception, and i love everything…the eggs, the spring outfits, wheat grass, the pastel kitchen accessories, baby chicks {like… the real animal!}, the ham dinner.

i love pretending the easter bunny is going to come hopping right through our back yard in front of my older girls even though my excessive enthusiasm is met with rolled eyes by all.
