Spring is one month away, and we have two more months before Easter Sunday arrives on April 24th, but the busy bees at Martha Stewart Living have already rolled out their Easter collection at Grandin Road. And quite a collection it is - a fairly extensive line of table accessories and decorations to help make Easter a little extra special. What I love about the line is the synergy behind so many of the product ideas: many of the decorations have been seen as DIY projects in the pages of Martha Stewart Living magazine over the years. Below are some of my picks from the collection, which can be viewed in its entirety by clicking here.
This pretty wire planter was influenced by a similar one that was featured on the cover of the April, 1998, issue of Martha Stewart Living. The designers revised it slightly, but it's still the same charming size and style, perfect as a centerpiece.To place inside the planter, Martha's designers came up with a charming option: hyacinth flowers blossoming from egg shells!
Here's another piece influenced by a DIY craft that took the cover of the April, 2007, issue of the magazine: a feather tree adorned with beautiful hanging egg ornaments. The ones on the cover are homemade, of course, but these lovely metallic eggs (below) would be just as beautiful, catching the daylight (or candle light) on an entry table or dining room sideboard. A flurry of butterflies in bold pinks, yellows and oranges herald the arrival of spring when they're amassed in a wreath formation. Below is a closeup of the design.
