16 Beautiful Ideas For Easter


Have I ever told you Easter is my favorite holiday?  If I haven't ....let me share with you and shout from the roof tops... Easter is my absolute...hands down favorite holiday of all time.

Wanna know why? Because it's Easter. There is first and foremost the fact that Jesus rose from the dead and with that we get the most beautiful colors of the year coming out all around us.

There's the dresses, bonnets and bow ties. The Easter baskets. The Hallelujah Chorus with the trumpets at church....oh there is nothing like hearing those trumpets from the balcony.

Then there is the Easter Egg hunt and the decorations and the food....we can't forget the food and then there's the dessert.

We go all out for Easter at our house. It's in my bones, my mom did it, my grandma did it, and my great grandma did it, and so did my great-great grandma.

                                          flowers, pots, garden, nature

Flowers are a must at any Easter celebration. Colorful flowers.



I can't believe in all of the years we have celebrated Easter and laid those big eggs out everywhere we never thought to hang them from a tree. Genius.

I fell in love with this Jelly Bean Fudge.

Rainbow Water Centerpiece: How insanely creative is this DIY centerpiece? Just add a drop of food coloring to each glass vase to turn your water totally technicolor. You can even try color blocking every other vase, or go with an ombre fade from deep purple to light blue. (via Papery & Cakery):


This is such a simple centerpiece. A little food coloring and some glasses and a flower for each glass. Simple and beautiful.

The star of our Easter celebration (besides Jesus) is my Grandma's Lemon Poppyseed Cake. Divine is the best way to put it.

How would you like your very own Easter Egg Pizza? This is perfect for a ladies luncheon, dinner, kids or even grand kids to do.

Easy No Bake Easter Bunny Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries.


Oh favorite food subject. It's not Springtime without strawberries. Here you have strawberries stuffed with cheesecake filling. Mercy Me.


Hands down.....these Rice Krispie Crosses are brilliant. It helps keep things in perspective for the holiday too.

Night Time Craft Mom: Easter Subway Art:


And last not least...... subway printables that celebrate Jesus.
