This post is sponsored by Oriental Trading, but all opinions are my own.I love the Easter season. It is a time of renewal and rebirth. A time for deep reflection, worship and family. After coming out of the dreary months of winter it is like a breath of fresh air. It is a also a wonderful time to decorate with fresh spring colors and sweet Easter animals. I have discovered through the years that I like to decorate for the seasons, but I like to keep it simple too. Today I am sharing with you some easy easter decor ideas that are quick and affordable with some products from Oriental Trading.
I must confess that I love chenille easter chicks. Whenever I see them my heart just feels happy. This year I decided to display these fun chicks with sunbonnets in a glass jar with some jelly bean beads. It is fun and quirky and I love it.
When my son and I opened the box full of these Easter Chicks we both giggled. He called it an army of colorful Easter chicks and so it looks. It is also amazing to me how none of them look exactly the same. The each have their own personality. I could spend a long time looking at these cuties.
The Easter egg wreath and statuesque bunny add the right touch of elegance to balance out the whimsy. I love to mix elegance and whimsy together. It gives so much for the eye to look at. Plus it is just plain fun.
I love to add chalkboards around the house because they are such an easy way to bring some fun and elegance together. And the sayings or art can be changed easily to reflect the season or celebration.
When you purchase or make a new chalkboard remember that the surface must be seasoned. Simply take a piece of chalk and rub it all over the surface and then clean away. I like to do this a couple of times. This will make it where it is easier to write and draw on and your images will erase completely when you are finished.
I added another colorful chick army by my chalkboard sign and it just makes me smile. How could it not?
