The Most Beautiful Easter Decorations

Are you still in preparation setting your Easter decoration? The hunt is over! These charming centerpieces and table settings will get your celebration hopping.

From blooming hydrangeas to delicate porcelain plates in cheery colors, all call for equally decorative ear-candy. And while the little ones run around hunting for treasures in the lawn, you may as well relish in the juvenile delight, too, by sitting back and enjoying the touch of spring you have brought to the table.

Straight from the Garden
If your lilacs are still blooming, combine them with some pastel-coloured easter eggs.

Vintage Tea Tins
Using old tea tins can give your decoration such an interesting vintage twist. Make an eclectic group of bouquets to decorate your holiday table.

Twine Vase
Upgrade your empty glass vases or just a plain jar with twine to add a romantic touch to your Easter table.

Photo Vase
The secret to this stunning arrangement? A vase hidden within a vase. Give your clear vases a personal touch by attaching photos of your loved ones with clothespins.

Simple Bud Vases
My favorite flowers in my favorite vases. A simple thing that does the trick, just arrange some single peonies in bud vases down the length of the table.

Easy Easter Centerpiece
For the easiest DIY centerpiece of all time, use twine to wrap a doily around a Mason jar, and fill with tulips. Add some lemons for the ultimate color kick.

Daffodils and Easter Eggs
The low budget version that will leave your guests amazed. A single daffodil on the napkin for each guest adds a beautiful touch to hosting an Easter brunch.

Carrot Centerpiece
Full of vitamins and energy, those carrot centerpieces are absolutely adorable and easy to achieve.

Egg Crate Centerpiece
Hollowed out egg shells become tiny bud vases in this crafty centerpiece.

Happy Easter to all of you! I adore playing around with pieces in my closet to match the theme of the day. This bunny ear headpiece and the printed bag are certainly interesting ones to have. Especially the latter from Prada’s Resort 2016 collection, it’s bunnies all over again, with a contrasting design element in the form of red arrows.

Happy Easter Weekend

Happy_easter_2013_Cover

My dear readers, I am wishing you fabulous Easter weekend! I am so much looking forward to mine. After all those amazing travels, I need some rest and time to write about all my recent adventures before hitting off to new ones soon.

Happy_Easter_2013_nespresso_Maison_Cailler

So how do my perfect Easter treats look like?
To get started, I love drinking coffee. At the moment, I wake up my mornings with Nespresso‘s new Grand Cru LINZIO LUNGO. A smooth and well-rounded blend with rich notes that will gradually awaken your senses. It tastes so perfect in combination with a croissant or a piece of chocolate. Yes, I love chocolate for breakfast. Personally speaking, it tastes never better than in the morning with a fresh cup of coffee. And having time to read the newspaper is heaven…

Capsule_nespresso_linizio_lungo

Nespresso Grand Cru LINIZO LUNGO CHF 5.20 (10 capsules)
Available in Nespresso stores and online.

Maison_Cailler_lapin

Perfect and cute chocolate for Easter: LAPINS de PAQUES by Maison Cailler.
Available in two versions online for CHF 24.00 (16 pieces).

And for all fashionistas among you who wouldn’t touch a croissant or prefer doing sports instead of reading the newspaper in the morning, I have some very fun and fashionable treats:

Carrying the newspaper might be more chic than reading it…

Dodo belongs to famous Italian jewelry brand Pomellato and is definitely their sweetest collection. The dodo pendants are a happy company of animals who speak the language of feelings and emotions. Each dodo reveals a little bit of who we are and what we want to say, sending a wonderful personal message to our loved ones.

Those who look like innocent little lambs and those who pass for big bad wolves often make a perfect couple. Why not giving such a sweet little Easter lamb instead of eating it?!
