Easter is a wonderful excuse to celebrate easy-on-the-eye pastel colors. Blue, pink, green and lavender in light-as-air hues may be passé in 2010, but the colors still hold a special place in my heart.
Growing up in the Midwest, Easter was often the second gear on the way to spring in full bloom. Easter egg hunts, Easter baskets and visits with the Easter Bunny may be long gone, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy soft-colored stationery, Cadbury Creme Eggs, and cards and gifts from my beloved family.
Gartner stationery in an array of pastel shades, $9.99 for 50 envelopes and cards; Target stores.
Scalloped edges in pink evoke feelings of joy.
Love, my parents.
Soft and delicious Creme Eggs, surely a staple treat of many an Easter basket.
