It's beginning to look a lot like EASTER!

I realized that I had next to NO Easter decorations for our little home. Last year I practically skipped the holiday since I had just delivered Parker days before, I don't think I really cared or noticed :) Plus, it's been this past year that I've tried to develop my crafting skills. I call myself a "wannabe"...but this is what I came up with on my small budget :)

^ This isn't much, but it adds a burst of "spring"

^For the kitchen table I used spanish moss (from off a tree outside) for the "nest", plastic eggs, flowers,birds and placemats from the dollar store, and the "E" I had on had from Skylee's old room decor (already painted pink too!)

I made this little Easter Tree from branches I spray painted, a cheap bag of plastic eggs, ribbon, then ties these babies on. Skylee loved helping with this one :) You could also paint the egss, but I just don't have the time this year for that, not yet at least (I'm blogging instead!)

I'm not a huge fan of fake flowers, BUT this is what I had on hand, combine with some of those little eggs again, in a glass vase/container.

Okay...I believe you've pulled yourself out of the "wannabe" league and into the creative!! I love your ideas!! I LOVE the table and chairs and sweet finding them already built...what kind of paint did you end up using? And the pics of your kiddos at the park are beautiful!!
