Let these fashionably dainty eggs proclaim the Easter season on your tabletop, nestled in moss beneath a spectacular floral array of midnight purple stock, deep pink tulips, and mauve lisianthus. Speckled faux varieties are encircled with lacy ribbons, tiny flowers, and other accoutrements affixed with a hot glue gun.

BLOOMING INTO LIFE Spring in the South is short and sweet, so when it arrives, I’m ready to make the most of it. Despite the abundant occasions and warm-weather escapes this time of year—more on those in a moment—I treasure the simple joys of home above all: snipping daffodils from the backyard to bring inside; potting a new crop of herbs; basking in the first mild days on the porch. Perfection! In Texas, there’s extra cause for celebration as the state's glorious bluebonnet season is upon us, and I am enjoying it vicariously through our piece on these blossoming beauties (page 13).

party time: baskets & bounty

HAPPY HUNTING On this lovely day, invite friends to delight in a charming alfresco affair planned with the whole family in mind. This most-anticipated occasion epitomizes spring’s sense of renewal, and an organic mix of décor brings it to life with the help of pastel flora and verdant accompaniments. Stock, fern, and hydrangeas soften the hearth of a rustic stone fireplace while roses, ranunculus, and Queen Anne’s lace keep company along the mantel with ornamental egg-filled nests. Linens introduce dynamic patterns; china bearing bamboo borders and resembling artful cabbage leaves helps further the natural motif inspired by the open-air setting. As children with baskets in hand take to the yard in search of treats and treasures, guests can indulge in simple bites like creamy Granola Parfait Cups and flavorful mini quiches.…

party time: first comes love

SOMETHING BUBBLY, SOMETHING BLUE Raise a glass to the couple headed for wedded bliss at a festive party imbued with refined touches that shine as brightly as the happiness that emanates from the guests of honor. A palette of blue, yellow, and gold sets a classic and celebratory tone. Scattered about the scene, fine china coordinates with mismatched chinoiserie vessels holding assorted white flowers and contrasts with chic contemporary serveware. With an array of sippers and hearty finger foods for the free-flowing social, invitees can mix and mingle on the breezy patio with Prosecco sangria, stop in the dining room for hors d’oeuvres, and linger in the den for coffee as the get-together winds down.
