Easter Around Here

Happy Easter / Hyvaa Paasiasta everyone!  I wanted to pop in today to share some of our Easter home and the fun the boys have been having this past week in anticipation of the big day.  So I'm combining a mini Easter tour along with this week's photos of the boys.  The biggest hit with boys this week are the crowns they made themselves at their Finnish parent and tot group.  They love them and have been wearing them all the time.  They'll make a few appearances throughout the rest of the post so I thought I should introduce your to them right off the bat. :)

In terms of decorating our home this year, it has been super simple. I've already shared the diy for these egg garlands.  I have been having trouble with the tape not holding them in place.  I probably should have used some sort of tack or hook, but I really didn't want to make holes in the plaster.  So up I go on one of my mint stools to hang them once they fall down.

Little Pilot and I have been, quite randomly, decorating wooden eggs.  We always seem to run out of time after doing a couple and I have purposely tried not to finish the projects for him so that he can feel proud of himself for completing the task.  One day we painted eggs in mint and gold (colours he picked).

Another day we made a washi tape egg.  I just cut some triangles out for Little Pilot to stick on.  Please don't mind my stacked votives on the mantel.  I thought they needed some height behind the eggs.  

I've also shared this modern Easter egg art that Little Pilot did.

 The dining room is ultra simple too.  I put some pink and purple tulips in an Aalto vase (I hope they will last through today).  There's also milk glass vase that is holding fruit which will hold some eggs later today and a bunnykins bank.

Here are a couple of pictures of the boys enjoying some muffins I made the other day.  They're wearing they're Easter crowns, which have really become decorations in our dining room and every other room in the house this week. :)

The boys' room also has a little Easter going on in there.   I made the eggs smaller from last year's Marimekko garland and hung it on a small wall.  I ordered the boys' a Brio kitchen, but we only have received the sink so far.  It's a little lonely without the stove, but the boys' have enjoyed playing with it so far.  I think I may have a fun little kitchen decorating project in addition to our renovation here!

I also got them these Easter nesting animals from Target.

The remaining eggs that didn't fit on the garland were taped to the wall between the beds.

I also took some pictures of the boys yesterday morning to hopefully get a nice Easter picture/photo for my 52 week project.  Here is just one of many outtakes.  Little Pilot is such a ham.  He has the best expressions.  Co-pilot is a little stunned. :)  

Here's the best photo I could get.  They're both smiling at least!
