Spring/Easter centerpiece

yachter123April 1, 2012

Hi all, well I'm back somewhat, am doing IDD therapy (spinal decompression) for my back, and am finally out of bed & able to do some things, including went shopping for all these lilacs for my centerpiece.

My table has been bare since last Nov., and it feels good to feel well enough to attempt a little decor.

I'm down from pain pills every 4 hours to a half pill a day & some days none at all. Even went shopping again yesterday for g-kids Easter baskets.

So, here is my first decor in months!

Oh it's so good to see you back and able to decorate again! I love lilacs! I grew up in Spokane, WA which is known as the Lilac City. There would be a big parade every year in celebration of the fragrant flower. Your centerpiece brings back such wonderful memories.

Great news, yachter!...so good to have you back! Wow, what progress you are making! Wonderful! Love your pretty centerpc here ...Lilacs are always so beautiful...I don't know if these are faux or not...so are so pretty. Our Lilacs are getting ready to bloom ..probably a month early here! Such nice weather that I've been outside & haven't changed any Spring decor to Easter yet.

I love the birdies you added & of course, candlelight...such a pretty table! TFS! Jeanne S.

Thanks Kath, Punk & Jeanne, the lilacs are silk, had a hard time finding them, but Joann Fabric had these nice silk ones & Hobby Lobby had the white ones. This will serve as my Easter decor too.

Had a few leftover that I put in my big cloche with a bunny on coffee table & a few in a vase in bay window.

Shopped yesterday & found two things at Kirklands I'm using for Easter,
A white pedestal cake stand with pink ribbon ( the one that you run the ribbon thru)
have wanted one for a long time & their spring & Easter was buy one get 50% off the second, so I picked out a large mercury glass vase in pink. Maybe I can get pics of them up too.

What a huge improvement in you. Especially hearing the pain has become so manageable! I am really happy to know that. I bet getting to decorate really made you feel good too. Those lilacs are lovely, of course you know I'd be nuts about them! ;o)

hugs, Karen

Nice to hear you are almost pain free finally Yachter. I'm sure it has been miserable for you. Very pretty lilacs and they just say "Spring" for sure. Luvs

Gosh, yachter. I'm happy to hear you are feeling better. I can't imagine how you worked through the pain.

Glad to see you back on the forum - and with such a beautiful centerpiece, too.

I'm starting to think about color for my patio pots. Flowers are such a pick-me-up.

Thank you all for the warm welcome back. I can only say I'm extremely happy to be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with this ordeal!

Sorry to not have time to answer & thank each of you individually, but the g-kids are home on spring break this week & I also have therapy 3 times a week, plus spinal decompression 3 times a week, so doesn't leave much time?

Still hoping to get a few more pics taken & uploaded! Have enjoyed seeing everyone's Easter decor!
