Since moving back to Brisbane just over 3 years ago, it has become tradition to have a combined family Easter lunch at our house. The food usually takes care of itself - the boys are in charge of the BBQ and everyone brings a favourite salad - so all I really need to plan is the decorations, which luckily happens to be my favourite part.
Last year I painted miniature plant pots fairly roughly and then planted grass seed in them about 3 weeks before Easter.
The year before I modified a Martha Stewart idea and converted blown eggs into pastel bunnies with some crepe paper and cup cake holders, one for each plate.
Three years ago I shaped a ring out of wire and then wrapped thread around feathers to create a feather wreath. Empty egg shells used as vases for tiny flowers finished off the centres.
This year's theme is still a surprise (to me as well!) but I love the whole process of flicking through old magazine cuttings, browsing the internet and coming up with a scheme, so I am looking forward to getting started.
JJ has been busy decorating her house with Easter vignettes and trees. This pastel arrangement looks beautiful on her dining table.
