Well it certainly doesn’t feel like Easter is just a few weeks away. This week has been chilly and wet here in Northern Cal. I wore my sleeping bag jacket to the grocery store yesterday, but that hasn’t stopped me from thinking about my Easter table and decorating a bit in the house too.
Right now there are a lot of fun Easter and spring looks everywhere. I add just a few things to the house for spring with natural elements and a couple of whimsical bits or a bunny or basket. This look caught my eye on the Crate & Barrel website. Love the pretty cherry blossom branch. You could forage your yard for these or something in the blossom family.
They also sell these faux branches, which look very realistic and could be good in a glass vase too mixed with some real branches and flowers. I like the fringe napkins and the light grayish blue plates.
At my local Anthropologie I noticed these darling ceramic berry baskets in the kitchen area. Imagine them with dyed eggs and the rest of the year to hold berries or lemons.
They also have these stripe/gingham kitchen towels in sets of three. Perfect Easter tones and they would work also as napkins on a brunch table too! I like the idea of mixing the three different patterns on white or pastel dishes.
Anthro also has this gingham table runner in a tan and citron tone or a orange/pink version. Something about gingham is so appealing to me in spring. I think this would be pretty with many small vases of daffodils.
The addition of nature on your table and it is the easiest and cheapest way to bring spring to your table. We usually use my mom’s vintage pink plates, and I look in the yard, or the grocery to see what inspires me.
This is one of my favorite inspiration photos from an old Juliska ad. The fern and plants in the glass with the moss could be easily replicated with different jars and glasses and fern or small flowers with a the moss. Of course the blue dishes are beautiful and might work for a Passover Seder too. I don’t own any Juliska, but I might start collecting some. Gorgeous.
This is also a lovely look..
This is one that can be a tablecloth/pareo/or wrap.. so pretty !
Love this too...
More inspo..these cute cupcakes from the Firmdale Hotel website? You could copy this look with little eggs and candy flowers!..
What about Easter clothes? Are you inspired to get something spring-like this year? I am definitely wearing a dress of some kind. When we were small, my grandmother loved Easter and my grandparents would always take us out for dinner and a pair of Easter sandals and those would be our shoes until school started again. I would always ask for a small white purse to match too. Sometimes I would get one if I was lucky. Easter dress used to be a big thing and I still love the tradition.
Maybe you can start with a cute mask to get in the spring feeling? I love this set of three in spring greens from Terrain.
I also just bought more masks from my talented friend MeiLei who gives her proceeds to charity. The quality of her masks is so good and she adds a pretty lining that always contrasts well with the front fabric. You can browse her Instagram account .
These floral slides are just so spring I had to share them…
I’m considering this Tory Burch gingham tunic on sale now. It’s a bit sheer so it would make a good coverup as well as a light dress for summer.
I just spotted this bag on sale at Bloomingdales… Very sweet in linen! I can see using that all spring and summer and especially for trips to the beach.
I’m also kind of obsessed with this Bamboo Ring bag.. It’s nice to have a basket purse with a Easter or spring look.
Tory Burch has this adorable cross-body on her spring event sale now. The lining thrills me!
It seems like longer tired dresses and puff sleeves are big this year. There are a lot of cute versions of what Bloomingdales calls the ‘housedress.’ Really? Is that because we are in our homes now as much as our mothers and grandmothers once were thanks to Covid? It hasn’t been so bad, but most of us are not wearing housedresses! Here’s my picks of the best longer looks..
Here’s a versatile look similar to the one with the yellow bag above by Aqua for Bloomingdales. You can dress this up for Easter Brunch or Passover Seder and also wear it with casual slides and a bag like above for summer. I’d add a fun necklace or whimsical earrings.
Also love the straps of this gingham number by Lucy Paris and can be paired with a jacket or a wrap if it’s a cooler day.
Toile is always a favorite and cute in this blue look. I love the neckline.
A sweet floral on this Aqua floral midi look..
This cutie by Wayf would be closer to a housedress to me, but also good for spring with a cardigan and in summer as a coverup or with flip-flops for everyday.
Another by Lucy in Paris again.. Would you feel like a character in Bridgerton? Something about it is appealing, not sure about on someone of my age.. I’d wrap a soft shawl around this.
This more structured look by Rebecca Taylor..
This block print dress looks like the easiest thing and you can dress it down or up..
This from Tuckernuck is a great spring look..
This Zimmerman dress is a bit more money, but perfection for Easter or anything special this spring or summer.
This maxi is from Anthro and love the embroidery..
And I just had to finish with these darlings by Jeffery Campbell…
Hope you find something you love or to inspire you!
