Last Minute Easter Decorating

Can you believe it's April already? And, I'm so running behind with Easter decorating. 
This year, our son and his family won't be able to be with us for Easter, plus... we've been doing Spring cleaning, so my Easter decorating is suffering. 
I know...excuses, excuses. :)

But, here are a few new things I did, and some from past posts that you might not have seen. 

Here's a little vignette on the entry chest. 

I cut a few Dogwood branches for a vase, and added a cross on the top of my great grandfather's Bible. 

In the family room, I filled an apothecary jar with speckled eggs, scraps of burlap, and two small, gray berry clusters from an old flower arrangement.

 I'm really liking the soft colors and will probably leave it here for a couple of weeks after I put the bunnies away.

Here are a few things from older posts...

One year, I jazzed up one of those square frozen lemon cakes with lemon slices cut in the shape of tulips, then added candy eggs around it. Easy Peasy.

Another year, I tucked blue and white dishes in a pre-made Easter basket.

And... crazy carrot door decoration from last year.

Wishing y'all a wonderful Easter. I'm on my way to check out more of your Easter posts. 
Y'all always have so many amazing ideas.

Some years we go 'all out' with decorations and some years we take it easy. I have to say that your quiet year is still lovely!

Babs, I love your Dogwood blossoms! My flowering crabapple is about to bloom and I can't wait to bring some blossoms inside! The cake, the carrot and the basket with the blue dishes are all beautiful! Happy Easter and thanks for sharing with SYC.

Hi Babs!

Thinking of you all day today --- watching back-to-back episodes of Outlander! Loving it and the history and the TARTAN!

Wishing you a blessed Easter.
Thanks for telling me (so long ago) about this fantastic series.

I love all of your different Easter decorations. I still love that carrot door decoration from last year! Hope you had a nice Easter today. At least the rain held off!

I love your Easter decorations, past and present, Babs. I really love the cross and the dogwood branches -- so appropriate for Easter. I didn't put out much at all this year; we've been spring cleaning, too, and doing yard work as well.

Happy Belated Easter to you and have a great week!
