Easter Link Party Highlights

By Kate Riley April 14, 2011

Thanks so much to the 200+ participants in the Easter Ideas Link Party from earlier this week.  Wow, you all just inspire me with your creativity time and again!  What a fantastic collection of ideas for Easter mantels, crafts and tablescapes.  I’m just amazed!  Here are a few highlights from the par-tay.

And have you noticed how apricot and coral are making a huge comeback?  I’m sure we will be seeing more of those hues this summer season.  

Forget the shell and create a crackled pattern directly on the eggs themselves with Blue Eyed Yonder.

  3. WOW! Looks like I have some reading to do. These are FANTASTIC. I love coming here for inspiration. It gets me all fired up to beautify my home…my house and I definitely need it.


  4. Thanks for featuring my pysanky eggs Kate. I’m flattered. I didn’t think they were so rare, but I have to say I haven’t seen many pysanky eggs around blogland. Thanks again – always a nice way to start the weekend.

  5. Wow, thank you so much!! We were so excited to see your post. Love all the projects you featured, and can’t wait to try them. Hope you get a chance to stop back and see the bunny house. Thanks!!

  6. Loved the post about Stephen Saint-Onge’s No Place Like Home! I struggle with picturing what my rooms “could look like. Especially my family room! The tear out pictures from magazines is a fun, doable idea. I can certainly copy-cat! Love your ideas!
