free easter goodies

Two years ago, the oh-so-talented Lindsay and I collaborated on this set of prints for the Easter season. The mix of her lovely lettering, pretty watercolor backgrounds and my favorite Easter-morning saying makes for a cheerful collection.

Using Lindsay’s artwork as inspiration, I played around with some holiday table settings. There are lots of do-it-yourself ideas here as well as simple ways to set a pretty table. Perhaps it can inspire your Easter decorations again this year.

linen + white + industrial basket + vintage glassware

and the perfect little place cards

printed paper + ribbon-tied napkin + coordinating chocolates in a pretty dish

with a lovely print to send home with each guest

fresh flowers + pretty china + playful polkadots

paper plates + candy appetizer + crepe paper flower

a name tag tied to a flower makes a special party favor

. . . . . . . . . . .

So does that give you any ideas for your Easter table?

If you would like to use Lindsay’s artwork as part of your decoration, we have put together a great collection for you.

This is a printable file with each of these designs in all three colorways {teal, green, navy}.

You can print as many as you need, give them as gifts or use in your own home.

And the best part?

ombre painted wave wall

Progress continues in the kids’ bathroom mini makeover with a super fun painted wall.

wave-wall-through-mirror

Let me start at the beginning …

blank-wall

This is the wall opposite the sinks/mirror. I took inspiration from my very favorite art print and thought painting ombre waves on the wall would be a fun way to fill it up and add a bit of color and whimsy to the room.

I began by sketching waves onto the wall with a pencil.

Then using a few shades of paint (two blues leftover from other rooms) and white, I mixed up seven colors starting light and getting darker as I moved down the wall.

Originally I wanted the waves to have a watercolor look, so I mixed in a few drops of water to thin the paint.      wave-wall-progress

Once finished, I decided the top wave was way too dark, so I painted over it in the white wall color and planned on going back over it with a lighter blue.

This is how it looked at the end of day one:

Cute … sort of.  I liked the idea, but I was not crazy about how splotchy the paint looked. The whole ‘watercolor’ thing did not turn out.

So yesterday I went over the whole thing a second time, mixing paint without water this time.

I love it so much more now!  wave-wall-finished

(the paint was still wet, so the color looks funky in that second row).

wave-wall-through-mirror

The wall hides behind the door, but it is visible from the mirror. The kids think it’s fun and I am happy to have some subtle color in the bathroom. It’s still a total mess in there, but I’ll keep plugging away and hopefully have it done soon!
