Hello, hello Glitterinas!
Thank you so much for opening this
Pink Glitter post.
Today I want to share our dining room table
that's ready to celebrate Easter.
I love Autumn and all her lovely colors.....
I love Christmas and celebrating Jesus' birth....
but Easter is a big deal in my heart!
Jesus loved me enough to actually die
for me.....me, a sinner who falls short of
my potential, every day.......wow!
Then He triumphed over death and rose
to live again and forever!
That needs to be celebrated.....every day!
But I only bring out all my Easter decorations
Baby chicks, bunnies, eggs all symbolize new life....
all the trees, shrubs, and flowers are ready for
a new season, too!
The pastels of spring are the main colors I chose to decorate
with on the dining table.....there are a few bright pops, too!
Let's look at the centerpiece that I'm calling
my Easter explosion.
I started with a large, crackle glass hurricane
I placed a mercury glass vase in it.....
and put silver, gauzy material
around that to hide the stems.
Then, in went the long stems covered with small, pastel
colored balls.....or since this is Easter,
let's call them eggs!
I added some metallic eggs on wire stems
to fill in around the top of
the crackle glass vase.
My Mom gave me these eggs a hundred years
ago and they've been used in a hundred
different Easter arrangements.
They are real work horses!
I added some curly-cues my
sister-in-love gathered up for me.
Her hubs was trimming tin and she
wondered if I wanted the curly pieces.....
ummm, yes please!
How cute are these little buggers?!
These were handled with much care....
I could just see a lovely, sliced finger!
A whole bag of these cuties were delivered to me
by way of another kind
brother-in-love, I'm blessed to have.
Three of these curly-cues went into
they add a wonderful element of fun!
When I was happy and satisfied with what was
in the vase, I wanted to add a bow to the base.
I love pretty ribbon!
I love tying bows on everything!
My sweet husband jokes that when I'm in decorating
mode he doesn't stand still around me
or I'll tie a bow on him!
The ribbons I chose were-
a pale green, loose weave one,
a hot pink, tone on tone stripe one,
a pink and green plaid, picot one.
These should make a nice bow for my
Easter explosion arrangement!
There we go....a nice finishing touch!
What do you think, Glitterinas?
Miss Bunny got a lovely bow, too!
Isn't that a sweet face?
She's got a beautiful, porcelain egg in
her basket that my Mom painted for me
over 20 years ago.
Mom also painted these smaller eggs.
They live in a glass fronted cabinet the rest of the
year, and come out to really be enjoyed
This year, they are on the dining table.
I finished off the table with a sparkly, blue egg
garland just running around the
other pieces on the table.
So, what do you think of my Easter explosion
Leave me a note and let me know what you think!
I'm so glad you stopped by and let me share
this arrangement with you.
I'll share our little Easter tree and other
decorations sprinkled around the house next time.
Until next time, Glitterinas....
He is Risen.....Amen!
