DIY Easter Ideas :: Pinterest

With the Easter holiday just a few weeks away (did it sneak up on you too?), I thought it was time to share some of my favorite DIY Easter Ideas spotted on Pinterest.

Easter egg pinatas craft - DIY #Easter Ideas

How cute are these DIY mini egg pinatas from Oh Happy Day?! Filled with candy, confetti or small trinkets, they would be great party decor as well as the perfect party favor!

gilded Easter eggs - diy Easter ideas

Using  metal leaf and washi tape, miss renaissance created some of glitziest Easter eggs around. I’ve gotta try this.

Easter bunny topiary craft - diy Easter ideas

Welcome Easter guests with this sweet bunny topiary wreath for the front door. The House That Lars Built used crepe paper, but boxwood branches works too!

pineapple easter egg craft - diy easter ideas

Pineapples are trending in home decor right now, so I was drawn to these fun Easter eggs. With a few eggs, green craft paper and bright yellow paint, Studio DIY crafted up these beauties in no time.

easter bunny placecard holders - diy #easter ideas

These gilded bunny placecard holders are a festive way to set the table for Easter brunch.  The Sweetest Occasion simply took plastic bunny toys, wire and gold paint to create them.  Love!

Inspired? Me too.

Find these and many more Easter ideas on my Easter and Spring Pinterest board!

happy crafting,

New Year’s Woodland Chic Tabletop by Aerin

Perhaps its the fact that I grew up surrounded by pine trees in Lake Tahoe that draws me to this woodland chic table setting by Aerin Lauder (yep, the granddaughter of the legendary Estée Lauder). Quentessence shared a sneak peek of Aerin’s New Year’s luncheon tabletop that will be featured this January/February issue of Veranda and I loved it so much, I wanted to share with you too.

My fave? The mocha floral tablecloth in Aerin’s Hither fabric for Lee Jofa.

What a wonderful way to ring in the new year! 2014 is going to be a great, don’t your think?

And to keep up with all the buzz in 2014, like with Simplified Bee on Facebook, tweet with @simplifiedbee on Twitter, pin with Cristin Priest @ Simplified Bee on Pinterest, explore with Simplified Bee on Instagram and collect with the bee on KEEP too!

Happy New Year!

Gold Holiday Decor + Gifts

disclosure: This post contains an affiliate links, which means Simplified Bee receives commission if you make a purchase using this link.

 

Shiny metallics are everywhere this holiday season and I’m most drawn to the festive golden hues. A touch of gold communicates elegance, warmth and richness. Yet, if overdone, can be gaudy, tasteless and down right tacky. So be careful not to go too crazy!

Here are some of my gold holiday decor and gifts for the season…

Happy *golden* holidays,
