Easter Is Hopping Upon Us…And A Giveaway!

“He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay”
Matthew 28:6

We’ve had a few days recently that have brought hints of spring to the air…bringing spring fever to Everyday Living!  And the arrival of spring means Easter is hopping upon us!  Soon the pastels, bunnies and chicks will be making their debut for 2016!  I love decorating with my collection of Fitz and Floyd rabbits and of course the fresh flowers that we will soon see…colorful hyacinths, lilies, and tulips!

While decorating for Easter is fun and brings a fresh feel to our homes, blogs, and social media accounts, one thing is central…the celebration of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!  We are so grateful that Jesus defeated death forever so that we could live forever with Him.  That’s a reason to celebrate!  It is our heart that His resurrection and His goodness are celebrated everyday of our lives!  Keeping that as the focus, our traditions for Easter center around our faith and family!  We will attend our church service with beautiful music and sound teaching and preaching that exalts the name of Christ!  Afterwards, we enjoy lunch at our home, which includes so many of my Mother’s recipes!  I know that there will be an Easter egg hunt in the coming years with our granddaughter on the way!  I guess we need to be scoping out good hiding places now!  What about you?  Do you have Easter traditions?

Today, I wanted to share some Easter tablescapes that I put together last year.  Hopefully you can gain some inspiration for yours this year!  Make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom to enter the giveaway!  You don’t want to miss it!

  1. Kim says:

    With our Easter being so early this year, I feel rushed to decorate before March is even here! But, I’m forcing myself to wait. It’s only next week, though, so now’s a great time to plan. Thanks so much for the inspiration…and the wonderful giveaway. The plates are so pretty!

  2. Carol says:

    My husband and I go to church and then have a nice lunch with my mom. Before we moved away we would go over to my daughter’s in the afternoon for an egg hunt and family picture with the granddaughters. Sadly we now live four hours away. I miss my babies.

  3. You have a gift, Pam for expressing words so beautifully. Our Easter traditions center on faith and family also. Whether we spend Easter at our home, our grown children’s or my sister’s home we always attend church and enjoy a special meal together afterward. Laying a special tablescape in the dining room elevates the importance of the day. The real meaning of Easter is central in our lives.The cute bunnies and eggs are a fun way to celebrate new birth in Christ in the arrival of spring and renewal in Him.
    I love your stand up cross and have looked for one that is big enough to use on my dining room table. I found a small one at Hobby Lobby but am still looking. Years ago I found beautiful paper napkins that said, He is Risen. I wish I had bought all they had. I’d rather have cloth napkins but the meaning and beauty of those were special.
    I am excited my son and family are coming to our house for Easter. They have a three and five year old so my mind is swirling with ideas and plans to delight them.I’ve got to get busy.
    Your tables are lovely and filled with so much personality. Spring is so welcome.
    Your giveaway plates are delightful.

      Bonnie, I am so glad your son and family will be spending Easter with you! I know you are so looking forward to the 3 and 5 year old grands! Those are fun ages and I know they will be so cute in their Easter clothes! Our small family will gather for lunch after church and I always prepare all the food! I am looking forward to to our Easter celebration of our Risen Lord! Have a great weekend!

  4. Martha Franks says:

    Since our children and grandchildren are grown, mostly now I do some decorating-I have an Easter tree decorated with tiny German ornaments, a few bunnies show up. I go to our lovely Easter service and worship our Living Lord. I’ll be so glad when we have great-grands and can go back to the fun of an Easter egg hunt. Love the little plates! Hope I win!

  5. Karenann says:

    Easter is always a wonderful holiday at our house. We go to church and then come home for a wonderful Easter brunch! I love your tablescapes. You give me wonderful and beautiful ideas for my Easter table! Thank you for such a lovely blog!

  6. Lori says:

    Oh so many pretty tables and ideas! I especially love the one with the cross in the middle and the wheat grass pots – ties in to the true meaning of Easter!

  7. Terri says:

    Awwww….. Longing to get my hands dirty…. “Potting some spring plants that is “!! … Your tablescape is just gorgeous!!!! those plates are sooo pretty …..

  8. Michael Bratek says:

    My favorite Easter tradition is hiding all prize eggs and watching the kids try to find and see what they got when they opened the plastic eggs with a note, money or gift certificates.

  9. Becky H says:

    Easter begins for us by attending church that morning, then lunch with all the family followed by an Easter egg hunt for the kiddos. I love decorating my table with new and old items. You have inspired me to start a little early on my decorating…guess Spring Fever is catching!

  10. Anonymous says:

    My favorite Easter tradition is going to church with our family to celebrate our Savior’s Resurrection and then eating lunch together as a family. Beautiful tables!!

  11. Brenda Gunnells says:

    My favorite is going to our Church Sunrise service a couple years ago. Love the feeling of Easter that God gave His Son just for me…..what magnificent love???? And I love cooking a full Sunday meal for all our kids!!!

  12. Kathie from IL says:

    An Easter service at dawn (often very cold growing up in Minnesota) then home to change into a new dress my Mom made and off to hear my Daddy preach a message of hope and salvation reminding us Christ is Risen, He is Risen Indeed. We had dinner with friends and neighbors who didn’t have a home with to go to. I made a lamb cake from an early age, when my kids were young and even grown up and now for my granddaughters. I love explaining why we have cakes in the shape of a lamb, the Lamb of God. I have usually had Easter egg hunts and made many hand crafted ones that have been kept and reused every year. My Mom often gave me a plant in a tea cup beginning my tea cup collection. I am so thankful for God’s great gift to give us salvation, the true meaning of Easter.

  13. My favorite Easter tradition when my children were small was having them search for their hidden Easter baskets. We continued this tradition through their college years. Thanks for the chance to win

  14. Ruth says:

    My Favorite Easter tradition is going to church with the whole family and then dinner! What better way to celebrate a risen savior than to worship him in his house!

  15. Pam this tablescape has hopped right into my heart! Thank you for the chance to win such lovely plates. I have my fingers crossed!
    I am a bit late in visiting due to it being college finals week for me but I am so very happy you joined Thought of Home on Thursday and shared this delightful gem.

  16. Anna Starner says:

    I love going to church Easter morning. We have a large Rose Window that the sun streams in so beautifully at the end of our service it has become tradition to turn and look at it as the choir sings the processional.

  17. Rhonda says:

    Your tablescapes are beautiful, and I’m sure they were a treat for your Easter guests! We have the same tradition as you, celebrate Easter at church, then dinner and an Egg Hunt afterwards… usually at my home! Can’t wait to see you table settings this year! I’ve got to get busy doing a little decorating myself. Just couldn’t bring myself to do it until March arrived. :) ~Rhonda

    • Everyday Living says:

      Rhonda, thanks so much! I have to get busy on my Easter tablescaping for this year…seems like we just celebrated Christmas! Wishing you a happy 1st day of March, Pam

  18. Nena Palmer says:

    Easter is family time. I love watching my grandchildren hunt Easter eggs. Thanks for the Beautiful ideas for the table. Love Nena

  19. Stephanie says:

    Such a sweet and charming post, dear friend. Your Easter tablescape brought a smile to my face.

    And what a beautiful giveaway! You are so sweet to offer your readers such sweetness. Hugs and joy to you!

  20. Jaybird says:

    Easter is always a most special time for us….We start the day at Sunrise service in our old home town. Since we are all active in various churches, we go our own direction, and then meet back up at our house for a later lunch, egg hunts, a soft ball game…etc..
    Blessings to you,

  21. Rosie M. says:

    My favorite Easter tradition is the baskets I put together: each grandchild gets one (that means 8) and then each family gets one (that means 4). The family baskets get candy, but also seasonal items like Easter dish towels and bunny figurines. My daughters really appreciate the fact that they receive cute items to use each Easter. Rosie

    • Everyday Living says:

      Rosie, that is a beautiful tradition, wow 12 baskets with all the goodies is a big task! I know your family is so appreciative! Thanks, my friend!

We love your comments!
