Easter Mantel - Seasonal Sundays # 199


Easter is the most holy of days in the Christian faith and one which I observe, but I also very much enjoy the secular aspects of Easter. As my children have gotten older I had become a bit more hesitant to decorate for the season and continue with the traditions of dying eggs, hunting for eggs and Easter baskets. Much to my joy, I have recently learned that my children look forward to these events and traditions. While some years I decorate more for a given holiday than others, it has made me smile when one of my daughters would remark on why I hadn’t decorated much or at all for a particular holiday. It’s traditions, both religious and secular, that help bind our families together through all of the ups and downs of life. I hope that no matter where you are that you’re continuing some of your family’s traditions.

Easter Display - Seasonal Sunday # 198

I have a good friend who is always moving her furniture around her home. I rarely do that. Once I find a place for furniture it tends to stay there, but I do like to change the look of my home. I feel it keeps things fresh. With Easter almost here, it provided a perfect excuse to rearrange and decorate my corner cabinet in my dining room. If you're a regular reader of The Tablescaper, you know I frequently change out my corner cabinet. There are certain spots in our home that lend themselves to being changed out for the season. Some areas are easier to change out than others. One of my favorite spots to change out is the corner cabinet in my dining room. I can very easily get an entirely different look and feel by changing out the corner cabinet. While you could change out every area of your home, try to find one that you change regularly. It will make the process less daunting. You’ll love the fresh look.

The display is not cluttered or complicated, but a fresh look to reflect the season. Plus why let all of those wonderful dishes sit in boxes? LOL! Pull them out and enjoy them!

The bunny pitcher and egg cups were on one of my Easter Tables and now are residing in the corner cabinet.

As were this bunny bowl and the white salad plates.

And the bunny casserole, but everything takes on a new look when set against the pink Bordallo Pinheiro bunny plates.

Love the edging of cabbages on this Bordallo Pinheiro small platter.

Red and green are the traditional colors when we think of Christmas décor but the simple use of white and black can make a striking display.

My Christmas preparations continue.

In my post last week, I talked about how when you change the décor of a room, you wind up changing your holiday decorations too.

My corner cabinet got a makeover as well!

I enjoy taking things that I have and use every season, and…

But I must confess, this little trio of Sadler English pitchers were a purchase this week from an antique shop while I was out Christmas shopping.

Their coloring confirmed my thoughts on what I wanted to do in this cabinet.

The little trio of ice buckets spans the years. The one furthest to the right is rather new…

A few weeks ago I shared my new tree, with just it’s lights. Well, now it’s in it’s full glory – full of the many shades of Christmas!

Love seeing what you’re up to.
