Make use of your chandeliers and hang Easter eggs and green foliage to really make a statement!
Since Easter is almost here, why not also incorporate that into the main theme? Nothing captures the beauty of this season better than fresh green grass. You can also create a more eye-catching arrangement using bold colors Tulips and Lilies are especially beautiful so why not include them in your arrangement as well?

This simple, slow-roasted tomatoes recipe is packed with fresh flavor. Serve these roasted tomatoes as a savory side dish, in salads and sandwiches or mixed with pasta, a little olive oil and fresh basil. To intensify and add depth to their flavor, we sprinkled plum tomato halves with sugar, pepper and dried herbs and drizzled them with olive oil. The secret to the success of this easy recipe, though, is baking the tomatoes low and slow in the oven. Trust us, these slow-roasted tomatoes are worth the wait!
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
- Halve the tomatoes lengthwise. With a small, sharp knife, cut out just the top of the hard white core. Make a few cuts through the hard flesh in the tomato center, being careful not to pierce the skin.
- Place the tomatoes on a rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle each tomato half with a small pinch of sugar and pepper and a generous pinch of herb. Drizzle ½ teaspoon oil over each tomato half.
- Bake for 30 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 200°F and bake until the tomatoes are collapsed, 2 to 2 ½ hours. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Tip: You can make an easy pasta dish with any leftovers: Cut the tomatoes into slivers and toss with hot pasta, a little olive oil and fresh basil. Yummy for your tummy!

Combine simple flowers with different colors to obtain a charming centerpiece or mantle design. Instead of colorful flowers you could also opt for an all-green décor. You can use egg shells to make some very lovely centerpieces for the table.
With a bowl, some soil, moss and fresh plants you can add color and freshness to your table. The bolder and brighter the colors are, the stronger the visual effect is. It’s not just the table that you need to have in mind but also everything around it. Combine pastel shades with bright colors for a balanced effect. Be playful! It’s spring!
It could also be a good idea to consider using fresh vegetables for the centerpiece. A wooden planter with green grass would have a strong visual impact despite its simplicity. This is elegant and sophisticated.
Use wine glasses as vases for the table and fill them with flower bouquets. An ingenious idea would be to make flowers out of fabric and use them as table centerpieces. Put white flowers in white vases for a diaphanous effect. Also, the white and green combo is very beautiful and elegant. You can paint metal cans and turn them into vases or planters for the centerpieces
Transparent glass vases allow you to admire the whole arrangement. You can use two vases and put the smaller one inside the other.

Happy Spring decorating!
As always, live your best life!
