Today is a round-up of pretty ways you can get ready for Easter. Lots of creative Easter and spring ideas!!!
START SAVING ONION SKINS
Every year I make ONION SKIN EGGS. I’ve made them as long as I can remember. It’s part of my Hungarian roots. It’s just a part of getting ready for Easter at StoneGable!
To make them you need the outer skin jackets from about 5- 10 pounds of onions.
Now is the time to start saving those papery onion skins and dye your Easter eggs with them! They are so so pretty!
So when it’s time to color eggs you will be ready to dye them! GO HERE to see how easy it is to dye onion skin eggs!
This post was done early on in my blogging career. The images were taken with a point and shoot camera, so they are not the best but the tutorial is great!
If you like the idea of naturally dyed eggs how about these eggs…

CREATE A KITCHEN HERB GARDEN
This is the time when most of us are craving to dig in the dirt! Well, maybe some of us! And I really start wanting my herb garden and all the beauty and freshness it brings!
Creating a kitchen herb garden in a basket is so so easy and will give us a head start on planting herbs outside! It has become part of Easter decor for years.
I made kitchen herb gardens and gave them as Easter baskets!
Create a basket to use on Easter morning! YUM! See how to MAKE A KITCHEN HER GARDEN HERE.
MAKE PRETTY SPRING PRINTABLES
It’s so easy to take advantage of free spring printables that would look so pretty as a bit of Easter decorating! Or how about printing them out and use them as place cards or table favors at Easter dinner!

MAKE BEAUTIFUL TORN TISSUE EGGS
Aren’t these little eggs amazing? Napkin covered eggs are so easy to make and are a stunning Easter decoration! And depending on the designer napkins you choose they can look so so many ways!
I had tons much fun making these torn tissue eggs and can’t wait to make more this year.

START PLANNING YOUR EASTER TABLE AND MENU
Each year I plan an Easter brunch table. I try to make it different from the year before. I may use the same dishes and embellishments but I try to make it special and unique.
So I’ll start now to get ready for Easter! And if you are having family and company for Easter dinner you might want to start thinking about your table and menu too!
Look for inspiration from magazines, blogs, StoneGable and Pinterest. See what ideas you can incorporate into your Easter table this year!
GET READY FOR EASTER BY PLANNING A MENU
If you are hosting an Easter meal this year, plan it early and make ahead as much as you can. Ask the people around your table to contribute and enjoy your guests!
Serve beautiful, light spring food like these gorgeous PARMESAN ASPARAGUS PHYLLO ROLL-UPS that can be assembled a day ahead and refrigerated. All you have to do is pop them into the oven for 15-20 minutes!
MAKE A WREATH FOR YOUR FRONT DOOR
Celebrate Easter and early spring starting at your front door! Oh, nothings says WELCOME like a big fluffy wreath!
