I've really gotten into the Easter holiday this year. Having little ones around the house again gives me reason to make the effort. But this Easter vignette is geared more to my liking than those of the three little ones who come to visit me.
With a mix of antiques, vintage ephemera, faded hues, and natural elements here's an Easter vignette that appeals less to naivety of the Easter bunny and more to the celebration of new beginnings.
In the background is an old gravy boat filled with baby cabbage plants. Incorporating young summer seedlings gives me a chance to enjoy their beauty before planting them in the garden.
In my family, holidays were always filled with handmade pieces - and I tend to perpetuate the tradition. You may have seen these eggs from last year when I used them in the foyer, along with some spring blossoms in vintage china. They're little works of art meticulously embellished - a project my mother began but never finished. Beautiful in their raw + unfinished state, I left them just as I found them.
And I'm still enjoying my St. Patty's Day oxalis. When the weather warms up, this, too, will go in the ground. But for now it rests inside a Victorian egg coddler.
I always like to add a bit of moss to the mix. It reminds me of the lush green growth on rainy spring days.
For subtle color against the wood of the hutch, I added a collection of antique Easter post cards.
This Easter vignette appeals to my adult aesthetic, but it wouldn't be fair to leave the little ones out completely. For them, I've added a colorful vignette to the other side of the room made specifically for little ones to enjoy. It's filled with lots of bits + pieces from my family's craft hoard of miniatures.
