Easter, Eggs, + Eli

♥ Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; He has risen! -Luke 24:5-6 ♥

Easter, Eggs, + Eli Elis Easter Hunt Six 01

Ever since his first Easter at age one, I’ve been hiding Eggs in the fields of our Spruces trees for Eli to find. He’s never tired of it, and neither has this Mama! And my favorite part is that you can hardly call them “hidden.” All he has to do is find which tree they’re in–and at six years old, he’s learned almost all my tricks. After so many years, little has changed. But this year…he’s finally had a growth spurt!! So we definitely had to buy a whole new wardrobe! I love tradition so much, and will mourn the day he stops saying, “Mommy, can we hide these eggs again?!” ♥

We cherish our Easter weekends so much, for it’s in the hope of Jesus we can delight. We rejoice in his life, his death, his RESURRECTION and the fulfillment of his ultimate promise: Eternal Life!

 † HALLELUJAH! He is Risen! †

🍋 Colors are the Smiles of Nature. -Leigh Hunt 🍊

So get ready to SMILE your face off! Spring is such a joyful time of year. After the long dark days of winter, nothing could seem more refreshing than a table set with bright and beautiful citrus tones for a holiday that celebrates new life, new growth, and the return of light and warmth. We set our Easter table under an armful of blooming quince branches we’d hung. We laid a natural wood table with a gorgeous macramé runner from Anthropologie and set the table in textural tableware in shades of white and pale blue-green. For a dramatic centerpiece, we filled a terracotta roaster with all the best blooms of the season: Stunning ranunculus, sweet pea, roses, poppies, hellebores, French dianthus and lush, textural greens and accented with cut citrus fruits and sweet Easter eggs. We finished the table with darling little egg planters filled with fresh hellebore blooms. And our smiles were…huge.
