Easter Celebration

I hope each of you had a very blessed Easter yesterday! Here are some pics of this past week leading up to Easter:

My friend, Katie Joy, and I visited the Dallas Arboretum!
These pictures don't do it justice, cause it was absolutely
breathtaking! (more on this in a later post)

Beautiful ornamental peach tree

~Easter Decor at our House~

Every year growing up we would make a
"resurrection scene" inside of a pan using
sticks, rocks, dirt and flowers to remember the
death of Christ and celebrate His resurrection.
Here is my very simple display using
a pie pan, smooth stones and wooden sticks.

I made a Spring wreath for the front door using
blown eggs (some painted, some plain) ribbon,
craft grass, and satin material. I think it turned
out pretty well! ;)

It was hard to get the speckles on the eggs to look authentic,
but I think they look alright, considering the difficulty
I went through..ha!

My Easter egg tree. I filled half of the slots with
green and yellow eggs and the other slots I placed
my white egg cups with peach geranium blossoms
peeking out. Such pretty little flowers.

My green bunny dish. So cute
and vintage-looking. ;)

~Celebrating Passover~

Every year our family gets together the Thursday
before Easter to observe and consider the death and burial
of Jesus Christ. This year was no different and my Mother
made this beautiful (and delicious!) strawberry cake to
add a sweet ending to our very sweet and special
time together.

My sister Greta holding my sweetest little
nephew, Levi. I think he's still trying to figure out
what to do when someone says "smile!"
Such a cutie!

Hubby Matthew, in all his
bearded glory. Ha!

Beautiful flowers for a beautiful table setting.

~Easter Sunday~

Me and the hubby ;)

Happy Easter!
