Easter/Spring decor

I'm going to have to learn how to cook and bake my holiday meals, plus get out and work the crowd with my camera. I love my husband dearly, and he takes good pictures, but I think he forgets we have a digital camera. We can take hundreds of pictures. It's ok!
So a few days after the crowd cleared, I took pictures of the house.
In the kitchen on my Red Retro Table, I took a cake stand and turned it over for the 'punch bowl', added spanish moss for a nest, eggs I found at Michael's (I love the colors of these eggs.) The little chick bowl was on clearance at Michael's three weeks before Easter, so I snatched him up too.

I did the same thing out on my dining room table, but added two birds(from the dollar tree) under it. Those two candle sticks I got from Hobby Lobby, I still have to paint the right hand one black. But those babies were 90% off! I paid less than eight bucks for the pair.

The birds. I'm thinking I may have to paint them now, but I don't know if I should just do a wash, or completely start over with them. I know I've seen a ton of these birds around blog-land, and they all look great. Mine are in their original state. Kinda sad?

On the stove, a simple vase filled with eggs. I'm still loving these colors!

At the front entry I have this. I like it enough, but I think next year I'm going to go with something more custom.

I have four of those little trees scattered around the house as well, and a few things on the mantle. I thought overall it looked pretty good, and not one person said anything. Husband likes it, and says that people just expect it of me, and don't say anything because of that. I say if you thought I did a good job, you should say so. I make a point to compliment hostess' on the little details she put in, it really makes a difference!

Hello fellow Michigander! Cute spring decor! I love all the pastel eggs and I think the birds look cute as is.

Hello back Michigander! :)

Thank you for the compliments! I do like the birds. I have two more over the mantle I'm thinking about painting though.

The Dollar Tree glued sand onto them.

I don't get it either.
