Easter is less than two weeks away, so I realized yesterday it was time to pull out the Easter decoration before it’s not worth it anymore. I love the white wooden tray on our coffee table. It’s a key feature in the living room, as I use it to display my seasonal items. When it comes to decoration, I have a rotational system; meaning that hardly anything is out on display all year round. I have 4 big boxes full of candle holders, pots, fake plants, figurines, you name it. I change everything around regularly. This time I put all the Winter themed stuff back in a box, making place for my Easter decor. When we’re done with Easter, the whole house will be Spring themed, then Summer themed, etc. I quickly get fed up with seeing the same stuff all the time, which is why changing it around so often is ideal for me! Plus, it avoids ending up with a ton of clutter all over the place, and I also get to be very season-specific in my purchases.
So here’s the living room:
This little trinket dates back from my childhood:
I wish I could remember who gave it to me. I don’t even remember whether it’s from the 80’s or the 90’s. It feels like I’ve had it my entire life. When you close it, it looks like a wrapped up present with a pink ribbon around it. So cute!
And here’s the (minimalistic) bedroom decoration:
I could go all out with this fireplace and decorate it like crazy for each occasion, but I choose not to. I find simple, low key items best for the bedroom.
The flowers are from Ikea; in other words: super cheap. And the Easter candle holder is also a survivor from my childhood bedroom. If I remember well, it originally contained a bag of chocolate eggs. But again, I have no clue who gave it to me. My memory is getting old!
