Pastel Easter & Spring Inspiration

It’s only a few days away, so wanted to pass along some inspiring Easter ideas courtesy of Ikea. A soft pastel color palette is always a great direction for an Easter tablescape. This one created by Ikea features ARV dinnerware in pink and white has a simple and rustic look, but it also expresses a soft touch with the wave-shaped edge.

In addition to the setting the table, I also love the idea of hanging seasonal art prints and graphic posters like this message of springtime! A different and nice way to display prints is to use a pant hanger like seen below.

As you transition your wardrobe from winter to spring, it a great time to give your closet a little makeover. One way is to unify the look of your hangers. Love these painted in springtime pastels too!

happy day,
