Happy Spring! This may go on record as the strangest spring ev-ah. Let me assure you friends, Easter is NOT cancelled. This could very well be the best Easter ever. Try to think of it as the Easter you get to spend with some of the people you love most, and being low key. The pressure is off to have a big elaborate meal and gathering. Sure, we can still have family favorites, but seriously, it will be a lot less stressful. At least that’s how I’m going to think about it. I love my Easter tiered trays and spring decor, so that’s what we’re going to talk about today.
Y’all know I have two tiered trays, and I’ve been using both of them ever since I bought them. It’s hard to say which is my favorite, but I think if I absolutely had to declare, it would be the wooden tray. There’s just something about it that I really love. Maybe it’s the warmth of the wood.
Of course I also love my galvanized metal tray too. These trays are so much fun to decorate seasonally and for holidays, and once you get through your first year of collecting little things to go on them, then you can mix and match from your collection. I’ve finally gathered most of the things I use into one cabinet and now I can just grab my trays, sit there with everything pulled out and go to town designing and decorating. It’s a great creative outlet.
This year I have a new addition to my trays in the form of a round wooden lazy Susan. I actually stumbled onto this one at Costco of all places. As soon as I saw it, I grabbed it and put it in my cart. This was back in the fall, but if you know Costco [like I know Costco], you know they cycle items in and out, so just be on the look out if this interests you. Maybe it will show back up.
I also like to spread a little Easter cheer around the house. Kent gets quite the kick out of the number of bunnies we have. He and Katie kept going around counting them until they finally came up with the same number. That number is…drum roll please…49. They count every single bunny, from tiny to larger. Even if they are part of a group, they each counted individually.
