There are many advantages to living in a state with four seasons. As I’ve mentioned before, autumn is by far my favorite season. I also like winter – I am one of those strange people who actually gets excited when a heavy snowfall is predicted. But just when I think I can’t handle the cold anymore, it’s time for the season to change.
Spring is such a special time of new growth, new beginnings, and a promise of warm weather to come. And, of course, spring is when we celebrate important the Easter holiday.
As much as I love spring flowers, pastel colors and cute little bunnies, the most important part of Easter for me is the celebration of the death, burial and resurrection of my Savior, Jesus Christ. This is a time for reflection on all that Christ has done for me and to remember the ultimate sacrifice He made so those who believe in Him will have eternal life with Him. Hallelujah!
But as I said, I also love bunnies, baby chicks and all the fun elements of this important holiday. Having said that, Dawn and I have picked some of our favorite ideas for decorating and celebrating all things Easter.
Whether you celebrate the holiday with lunch or dinner, there are many beautiful ways to set your Easter table.

There are many different directions you can go when decorating a table. Earthy and organic, whimsical, traditional or somewhere in between.
