I Love Spring
You know, I was thinking about just how excited I am that spring is here.
When I was a little kid I hardly noticed the changing of the seasons.
I didn’t dread winter, and all its hassle of having to bundle up in warm socks and a coat, every time I wanted to step outside.
Of course I was excited for summertime out of school, but I didn’t dwell on the upcoming humidity and scorching hot days.
In fact, all of that never even crossed my mind.
Things have sure changed now, though.
As an adult, life just gets easier in the spring.
The kids can run outside barefoot, without a coat, and play out there all day.
I can leave the door wide open without worrying about the cold.
And, best of all, we get to celebrate Easter.
The Meaning of Easter
Four different accounts in the Bible tell the story of a man, who made an outrageous claim to be God, rising from the dead. That’s a pretty incredible story!
And the man who told it said that if you trust in Him your sins would be forgiven.
So, on Easter, we celebrate that free gift of salvation.
Easter Table Setting Decorations
To reflect this simple message, I kept my table setting minimal.
For the table runner, I brought in some grain sack with blue stripes.
For the hard boiled eggs, I kept them au naturel. I love the little imperfections of eggs sourced locally.
They are all different colors, shapes and sizes.
I added in some branches, from a bush outside, and white tulips in chippy ironstone pitchers.
I brought out my simple, crocheted corner, white vintage napkins.
I added in some potted herbs to reflect what is going on outside. I can’t wait until our garden is bursting at the seams with cilantro, parsley and thyme. Soon!
Thank you all so much for stopping by to see my Easter table setting!
