Ryan makes fun of me because every time a new holiday comes I adamantly declare that it is my favorite.
But Easter really is my favorite.
Growing up, our Easters consisted of easter basket scavenger hunts, Sandi Patti playing on the record player, marshmallow peeps and fancy dresses made by my mom. We ate breakfast (blueberry french toast) in the dining room with real cloth napkins and fresh flowers on the table. We wore our new dresses to church then on to a big family gathering where the cousins overdosed on candy and dirtied our pastel outfits. Sometimes we did an Easter egg hunt, sometimes not.
But ALWAYS at some point in the day we heard:
“He is Risen!”
to which we answered back:
“He is risen, indeed!”
Did you grow up saying this too? Doesn’t it just make you smile? There is something so happy about that phrase. Spiritually, of course. But also the idea of a fresh start, new life, a sense of hopefulness and excitement that surrounds this time of year.
It was this phrase that was the inspiration behind these free Easter prints designed by my super-talented friend Lindsay.
What she created is so beautiful – both in design and spiritual truth. I am so excited to share her creations with you again this year.
Because sitting down for breakfast at a special table is a favorite memory of mine, I set a few Easter tables (using Lindsay’s artwork as inspiration). 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 if you’re still in need of some tablescape ideas.
(P.S. Before setting these tables, I had to google ‘how to set a table’. That’s how fancy I am.)
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 polka dots
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 printable collection comes with small, medium and large art prints and place cards in navy, teal and green.
You can print as many as you need, give them as gifts or use in your own home.
