Easter Banners and Decor

April 17, 2014 by 2 Comments

I totally LOVE Easter.  I love seeing the flowers begin to bloom and the green blades of grass beginning to cover the yard.  I love Easter Banners and Decor.  I love warm days and cool nights.  I love that Easter this year is towards the end of April so I have more time than usual to enjoy the little touches I’ve added to the house and more time to actually take pics and share them with you!

Target Easter Banner @ItsOverflowing

I’m still using my same Boxwood Wreath!  Trying to us them on my front and side door all year long and just change up the look a bit each month.  The wood Spring sign was a fun Target find — just a couple bucks.

You know when the movers are packing that truck and it’s getting so full you feel like there’s no way everything is going to fit!?!  When we moved from our rancher in August, I was at the new house and Stud stuck around with the movers at the old house.  Several times he called and asked, if I could just leave the 1950s planter behind.  And each time, I asked him to pretty please make it fit.  He did…

Vintage Flower Planter 2 @ItsOverflowing

 And I’m so glad he did, I love this big of vintage on my front porch.

Berkeley Bunny loves it, too!  I’m working on teaching her to sit when the door is open, no joke, in this picture she’s staring down a couple on a walk with a black lab.  Proud mommy moment!  (Stud thinks she’s afraid to go out because she knows the other dogs would make fun of her).

Bunny Costume @ItsOverflowing

Our mantel has been covered in precious condolence cards from friends and family.  I think of all the cards I’ve received in my lifetime, these were the sweetest and most comforting to my heart.  And now it’s Easter week and so I’ve tucked the cards away where I can reread them and the kids and I have added this cute Target bunny garland — another couple bucks.

Target Easter Decor @ItsOverflowing

This little Easter nest was given to me by Moni — my sweet mother-in-law several years ago.  Every year I love pulling it out of my Easter bin! It works great with my simple IKEA framed tree and made-by-me candleholder.

Spring Mantel @ItsOverflowing

Each year when I take my Easter bin out of the attic — I love pulling out my favorite Easter Tree.

 Another couple bucks well spent at Target — this banner is way too cute!

Perfect for my Dining Room Mirror.

Target Easter Decor 3 @ItsOverflowing

Little B and I love this little felt Easter Egg  Banner for her very girlie room! — another Target find!

Target Easter Banner 3 @ItsOverflowing

And as seen on Instagram, Somebunny Loves You!!!  In case you’re curious, Berkeley loves getting new clothes and her favorite thing is being told she’s so pretty!  She wears her Bunny Suit proudly!

Yorkie Easter Bunny @ItsOverflowing

I love this time of year not only because I love pretty decor!  I love that my Savior loved me so much that He died a gruesome, humiliating death fulfilling Old Testament prophecy.  I am so thankful that death couldn’t keep Him and on that third day, Jesus came alive!  All who love and believe in Him will also go to Heaven someday, to live forevermore with Him!  Yep, Easter totally ROCKS!  And if you want to know more about talking with your kids about Easter, I love this resource!!!
