Before I left to Taiwan, I placed a large online order at Macy’s consisting of primarily spring household items and decor. A new throw, pink glasses, coasters, pink bud vases, bunny bowls, gorgeous gold trivets, a Kate Spade photo frame, and a new spring wreath to name a few. I also popped into one of my favorite local stores and bought a large spool of pink wired ribbon to spruce up our home.
Last week as I unpacked my boxes and saw my items, I was so happy that I bought all these things for our home to make it feel festive and bring some spring cheer now that we’re home a bit more.
I was planning to host my epic Easter party (and here’s still hoping!) but we will see.
We often buy things for parties or to impress others, but we need to remember that our home is still our sanctuary and we can absolutely buy and spoil ourselves because we’re the ones in the space the most and how it makes us feel is worth it! The little or big things are great investments if they make you happy, help you focus, or cheer you up! If you need a little pick me up, spring sprucing up, or inspiration, come inside my little house and see what I did to make it springy and then log onto Macy’s website. They are still delivering online orders and are following health and safety guidelines.
A majority of these items are all on sale now, so you get some great deals right to your door.
You’re going to see a lot of side gate. It’s just too cute and perfect that I’ll be using it for most of my shoots and decorating, it’s pretty much like my front door. We plan on continuing to use the new side gate as an entrance for friends who love to come through the back and straight to our yard. It is also the entrance to my new garden area. I thought adding a thick pink wired ribbon around the topiaries would look festive and now you know I’ll be swapping it out over the holidays for a fun way to bring some color and change it with the seasons.
This rose garden wreath made my heart skip a beat when I saw it (see entire line) it the right mix of whimsy and realness to it. I also love this garland. I link to other options above. I had an old bunny sign I bought from a friend’s moving sale and I forgot I had it, saw it when I was cleaning up the yard and thought it would look perfect over it, makes it very Easter-ish right?
If we are safe to socialize by Easter I will be so happy to host. I decorate and order the food and pick it up. I also plan the egg hunt in our backyard. I usually get help from the parents to set up the hunt for me which has been hilarious because I’ll see eggs high up in places I normally wouldn’t even think of placing them (the dad’s do this!). Then we do an adult Easter egg hunt and the kids hide the eggs for the adults! We entertain inside and out, if the heat hits early, we tend to stay a bit more indoors and then do the egg hunt later when it cools down a bit.
But back to inside since most of us are currently indoors and I think right now it’s important for us to do what we can to make ourselves comfortable inside, now more than ever.
The butterfly cookies I brought home from Taiwan. They are an Earl Grey flavor. I thought they were so gorgeous I had to bring them home. Some of the items that are not Easter related will be sticking around through summer. I’ve been wanting a light weight pink throw to cuddle up in while watching TV. Now that I’m home from being gone for so long in Taiwan, it’s nice to settle back in and I guess I’ll be forced, in a good way, to work on home projects, or start a new show on Netflix.
You can cluster these pink bud vases together with florals, but they would also look great without just as structural pieces. Maybe on top of a stack of books or on a shelf.

I’ve been wanting a pink throw, so I finally got one. Is there such thing as too much pink? New coasters, new glasses, I think pink is a neutral anyway! *wink*
I hope you find some ways to make your place festive this spring to cheer you up! I hope you are staying well, healthy and safe, and most of all trying to stay positive through this. I’ve found myself overwhelmed with emotions and I just stop and pray. While I certainly miss my friends and their kids so much especially after being away for so long, I know it’s for the best.
We’re all sacrificing for the better good as a team, united and if some spring flowers, opening up the window for fresh air, or a new cozy pink throw can make being at home a little more comfy, I hope you’ll find that little slice of heaven. xx
