Just in time for Easter, daffodils, grape hyacinths, early tulips, wild bluebells and my favorite native Dutchman’s Breetches are coming up in the garden. My favorite way to decorate for any holiday is to use a minimum of holiday-specific pieces that I’ll have to store, and instead bring the outdoors in for a seasonal touch. The exception for Easter of course is my Victorian découpage rabbit and a few feathered ducklings tucked here and there. I have been enjoying the profusion of spring flowers and branches in every room, and eating just slightly more candy than normal. This year I was inspired by the Easter floral installations at Château de Chenonceau and I incorporated ostrich eggs into little urns with twigs, ivy, and fresh cut blooms. We’ll be enjoying a pretty spring brunch table set with my new favorite beeswax candles and daffodils from the yard. Here are just a few Easter scenes from around our little château. Happy Easter!
