I totally love decorating for spring/Easter. I believe it is because I love the color and warmth that it brings into my home after the drab, cold winter. While thinking about how I would decorate this year, I came up with an idea to do a simple centerpiece for my dining room table. So while at the dollar store the other day, I happened upon these really cute Easter Eggs.
They were exactly what I was looking for. They are clear, with a textured crystal type cut to them. I did a happy dance right there in the store! I quickly snatched up 3 packs of them and grabbed a pack of raffia as well before checking out.
At home I already had these amazing little lights I had bought from QVC (I have a small obsession with QVC). They are made by Bethlehem Lights. I love them because they are battery operated and have a 4 hour timer. LOVE THEM!
I just think everything looks so much prettier with lights. Don't you?
I dug out this glass hurricane I had picked up from a Willow House party some time ago. I placed the light down inside and covered the battery box with the raffia. I threw some of the eggs in and voila! I actually love the way the raffia looks like a nest under the eggs.
I still had some eggs left so I pulled out this old compote. I threw some of the eggs in there to see what that would look like and actually liked it.
Here is another idea with a different shape dish.
I just love the way this looks all lit up! Truly the picture doesn't do this justice. It is so pretty! I keep finding reasons to walk back into the dining room just to peek at it. :0
I have a few other Easter and spring projects I am working on right now. Be sure to check back to see them. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think of these.
Thanks for stopping by,
