Easter Centerpiece

I decided to spruce up my centerpiece with some faux eggs I picked up a couple years ago from a craft store. I love the pastel colors and its a nice subtle update for the approaching holiday.

Easy Springtime Wreath

Today I thought I would share an older Easter craft that has been a staple of mine for a few years now. If you remember, last Fall I shared my autumn wreath which makes an appearance in my home at Thanksgiving each year. Here is a similar Easter edition.

I just used a plain straw wreath from the craft store. I found this beautiful yarn with variegated green colors that I think are perfect for spring. Then I picked up two silk flowers from the craft store. They attach with a clip on the back so they are super easy to swap out to spice up the color story as your tastes and decor change over time.

Think Spring With Pretty Florals

The snow is melting and it’s the first official day of Spring! I swapped out my Eighteen25 print for the Easter version and I love how it looks with my Anthropologie books!

I stopped by the grocery store and picked up some pretty blooms to help me get in the Spring spirit!

I can’t wait until it is warm enough to take Daisy for walks on the pier and start working on some landscaping ideas around my house! What are you most looking forward to this spring?

West Michigan Wednesday: Maple Sugar Time

One of the things I love most about my home is the location! I love living in West Michigan and enjoy many activities around town. I wanted to create a series that explores some of the great things that this area has to offer.

This is a fun, educational, and family friendly event to usher in the coming of spring. Admission is only $1 and participants get to experience this old spring ritual in a really cool way. You can walk down the trails to see how to tap a tree and gather sap, and then learn how the Native Americans made sugar. The tourends at the sugar house where you can see the evaporator in action making fresh maple syrup! There are loads of tasty treats available for purchase including sodas, floats, and homemade maple syrup. For more information about the event call 616-355-1057.


St. Patrick’s Day Centerpiece

It is just starting to warm up a little bit here in West Michigan and Spring seems just around the corner. Last week I shared my fun Irish themed subway art. So, with St. Patrick’s day coming up next week, I thought I would share my quick centerpiece update for the holiday! I have said before that I prefer small changes for seasons throughout the year that are quick and easy to swap out.

For St. Patrick’s day, I just tossed in my wine cork vase filler (It’s not beer… but it still counts, right?!) and a candle. I pulled out my green placemat and called it good! Do you decorate at all for the Irish holiday?
