Decorating for Spring “How To”

I know there’s a ‘right way’ of doing things

and a…well, you know.

But this is my ‘how to’! lol

Take everything out of your one box of Spring décor and put it all on one table.

That way it will be easier to put back in the box.

And you can walk by and move things around just for fun.

Or go to the thrift store and find the cutest little goose and add even MORE to the already crowded table of pretty things.

It helps to start with a vintage tablecloth.

This one says AVON on the tag.

I took photos of some of the scenes before I put all of my Spring things on top of it. (that was smart too, wasn’t it?)

I’m joining Beautiful Sunday and

Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday

and Amaze me Monday.

Happy Spring everyone! Bunny

You are one very smart lady. And you have a very good decorating plan to follow. You have some very cute Spring Decor. It would be fun to walk by and move things around and add more too.

Your table only says, "Happy." Love the little goose. A nice way to decorate for a short holiday.

Cute cute cute. We seem to decorate the same way - I put all my decorations on the sideboard and a few in the center of the dining room table. To some it looks crowded but I like the way it looks - and everything gets to be close to its friends. I've got my post almost ready about my decorating too. I love the new header - you have the very cutest things. I've never seen an avon tablecloth - that is just darling. Yesterday we were in a thrift store that had zillions of spring/easter things - but mostly they were the plastic eggs and I don't need any more of those.

Diane said...

Cute cloth! Like those little wooden "cars" too. I'm not smart and put stuff around my living room and dining room. Much more of a challenge to put away!!

You have so many great Easter items to choose from. You will make it very festive for sure...stopping in from Mosaic Monday and Happy Easter to you!

Kathy said...

You made me chuckle. This is something I would do. Love all your pretty things!

Butterfly 8)(8 Bungalow said...

I love your tablecloth!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Love the vintage tablecloth Diane - Avon used to sell some nice, quality items back in the 70s.
I like your idea of everything in one place on the table too rather than spread out like I have it. When it's time to pack up (any season) there's always something left behind.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

Poppy said...

Diane, they're all adorable! I especially like the little chicks and the geese and ducks! Your darling collection has brought back sweet childhood memories of Easter in Canada; thank you! SMILES!!

Hugs,
Poppy

bj said...

Annesphamily said...

Happy Easter to you and yours! Thank you for the smiles with your Easter display! Love all the shares here. Enjoy your week.

Sarah Beth said...

A great collection of spring goodies! Love the tablecloth -- reminds me of Beatrix Potter! And I spotted the Beatrix teapot!

Red Rose Alley said...

What a festive Easter table, Diane. You even put some books out for décor. I know how much you like the Golden Books - do you remember The Fuzzy Duckling? I just saw it the other day and had to buy it. I used to read it to the kids.

The little yellow ducklings on your table are so cute. Have a very nice Easter week, my friend.

love, ~Sheri

Donna said...
