I'll have my {Easter} eggs over-easy, please

So a few quick photos of Easter prep around my house (by quick, I mean: note the wrinkled tablecloth...haven't exactly had time to iron it yet. But in all honesty, will I ever? That's the question.) Here's an easy centerpiece made with Spanish moss, a fruit compote dish, a wine glass, and a small vase, all in pastel colors (with a few green votive holders sprinkled in). These are sparkly egg ornaments from Michael's (purchased last year) but you could use whatever kind of egg you wanted. I used a pastel cloth napkin in a large plaid over a small contrasting plaid tablecloth.
A potted branch from a curly willow tree that I've propped in the corner and hung with a few more egg ornaments (also from Michael's). I haven't made the ornaments yet that I referenced in my March e-zine, so these are it for now.

My adorable little Easter lights...which are almost as cute off as they are on! (Maybe even more so?!) Purchased on clearance just before Easter last year at Fred Meyer.

My Easter wreath on the front door. Usually I go for more natural-looking decor, but this one practically shouted, "Courtney! You must buy me!!" Just $12.99 at TJ Maxx this year. So fun and sort of retro. (When else can you cover your front door with feathers and aqua-colored eggs?)

For more decorating ideas, you've got to check out this post and this post from Melissa at The Inspired Room. It doesn't get more extensive than this - I love all the simple and affordable ideas she's pictured for Easter decorating. (Melissa's blog is a favorite of mine anyway, because she and I have very similar businesses and similar philosophies when it comes to decorating - so you should definitely check out her blog.)
