A Yellow and Green Easter

Here are pictures from another Easter we hosted a few years back at our last house. I love moss, so this was a fun theme to decorate for! I went on a "moss hunt" the morning before, gathering all sorts of moss from here and there around town. I created green mossy knolls on silver platters for mini daffodils to peak out from. It was fairly easy and a lot of fun to create!

Mossy knolls were built up around mini daffodils, creating our yellow and green theme.

The mossy rocks on either side were purchased at the dollar store (a bag of them for a buck!)

Here's a close up of the eggs. And you can see another one on the coffee table in the background.
I rolled the eggs in coffee grounds when they were still wet with dye, to give them a natural look.
I loved how the earthy speckles on the eggs complemented the earthy moss they were nestled in.

We used our different collections of white china - with gold and silver rims, and green leaves & blossoms.

Another close up of some of our yellow and green eggs and decor.

Outside the yellow, white & mossy green theme greeted guests.

I filled yellow wire baskets ($1 ea) with free moss and yellow pansies.
A large basket greeted guests - to put their filled eggs in to be hidden for the kids later.

Abby shows off her favorite egg she dyed herself.

Zoe shows off one of her eggs. This was three years ago, she looks so young!

A gorgeous spring day on the Palouse. I miss this huge old yard for its amazing views of the surrounding fields.

What a beautiful day to celebrate and what a fun way to do it! I hope you all have a wonderful Easter.  I look forward to sharing about how this year's Easter decor is shaping up. But above all, I love celebrating the whole meaning of Easter - Christ died, so that we may live. What a precious picture of LOVE. There is nothing more beautiful.

~ 2 Corinthians 5:15-17 ~  
15 And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves 
but for him who died for them and was raised again.  
16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. 
Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.  
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:[a] 
The old has gone, the new is here!
