My parents love to decorate especially for holidays! Easter is no exception. There are eggs, and bunnies, and chicks, and baskets, and more! There are groups of wooden cutouts for kids to play with to piles of dyed eyes created over the last 40+ decades. There are hidden narratives tucked between black and white photos. There’s functional kitchen items like a spoon rest and a utensil corral. And there is a giant bunny with its giant basket in a corner of the living room that delights the youngest visitors. Easter at my parents is fun! I only captured a fraction of their decorations (really!) but hope you enjoy it. So without further adieu… Here’s the tour!
Anyone from my childhood remember this big guy? That basket is almost up to 3/4 the height of a normal door!
I heart how clever my mom is to see space to decorate where it perfectly fits! And check out their view from the front of the house. On a clear day they can see another state about an 1+hour away(seriously!).
Even the kitchen has some Easter decor!
The salt and pepper eggs, bunny pitcher, and other decor are on the rolling island.
This little wooden play set used to keep me entertained for hours and now 40 years later my kids love playing with it.
Side tables are not immune to dyed eggs and bunnies!
It’s kind of like an egg hunt to take in all the decorations! This setting is found among a table full of antique books and black and white photos.
The dining room is packed full of decor. Usually Mamaw puts out about 5-10 more dozen eggs but ran out of time this year. That’s a bunch of eggs!
Another decorated window with a view of the outside from the back of the house.
Speaking of the outside of the house… You didn’t think they only decorate the inside of their house did you?!
These little bunnies are greeters on the steps up from the driveway.
In the spice garden at the base of the steps.
A wreath to welcome you into Mamaw and Papaw’s house.
And the year round stepping stone on a miniature path from the driveway to the base of the front porch stairs.
When my feet hit that stepping stone, I know I’ve come home. My parents have always opened their home to others and have desired to make anyone that crosses the threshold to feel like family. I hope that I extend that hospitality to all who enter my home as well.
Hoppy Easter to everyone! Hope you enjoyed this home tour of Mamaw’s house at Easter.
