Spring Decor + Easter Weekend Plans

HELLOOOOO LONG WEEKEND!! I am so excited for Easter this weekend and that it is finally feeling like Spring and therefore we are one step closer to summer! Although I always express my love for fall, I really do love all the seasons and look forward to the change that comes with each one!  The days are a little longer, the sun is shining (hopefully) and we can open up the windows, finally! Lately I have been working on spring cleaning and de-cluttering and also got our yard cleaned up and the patio furniture out to enjoy over the long weekend. Fingers crossed for sunshine and warm weather!!

I love incorporating colour back into my home décor come Spring! My winter pallet is pretty neutral so I always love pulling out some pastels that have been hidden away for a few months.

I like to pick up some grocery store tulips before Easter ($5, yes please) as well as a new spring candle. I also love the faux forsythia from the dollar store which can be styled in a vase or easily added to a wreath.

My favourite Easter décor is using faux eggs, like these twine ones I made for my craft night. I also found these pastel and gold leaf plastic ones also from the dollar store.

This weekend will be spent with friends at the annual broomball tournament in Port Stanley as well as a family celebration on Sunday which of course involves lots of food! As always with holidays and long weekends, it will be spent eating and drinking too much and enjoying the company of our favourite people! Here are a few festive food and drink ideas for the weekend- recipes can be found on my Pinterest board;

 I am very hopeful it will be nice enough out to enjoy our backyard. Come on, sunshine !!

Happy Easter, friends!! Enjoy your long weekend :)
