A few spring kitchen and spring table decorating tips can effortlessly bring freshness and new life into your home décor.

Table decorated with easter themed dishesEnjoy the cheerful whimsy of my Egghunt collection

When you’re looking for Easter decorations for your home that will bring a smile to everyone’s face, look no further than my Egghunt collection. Featuring playful bunnies, brightly colored eggs, flowers, and pops of teal, pink, green, and yellow, this collection of cookware, serving pieces, and easter decorations will look so sweet throughout your home. 🐰

For example, try layering in some Egghunt bowls as part of your dining table centerpiece or perhaps a set of pedestals with flameless candles on your entry table. They’re just simple touches that can bring so much fun to your home.

Meet my Woodland collection

While this design is terrific all year round, I think this pattern is such a great way to bring outdoor spring decorating to your indoor space. These elegant stoneware pieces capture the essence of nature, and the unique details will have the whole table talking! I love the rich textures, unique design, and neutral colors, which provide a beautiful canvas for adding your own pops of color. My table runners, placemats, and other table linens provide endless options for layering color onto your table!

The neutral tones of this beautiful collection allow the flowers’ colors to take center stage. Whether your home decorating style is traditional, modern, farmhouse chic, or anything in-between, my Woodland collection will pair perfectly!

Just like spring, the bee has always been a symbol of hope. Create a buzz on your table decor with my Bee-lieve collection. 🐝

bee-lieve collection dishes

I designed this collection with beautiful honeycomb details, flower shaped pieces and bees dancing all around each individual piece. In warm and happy colors, like taupe, white and buttercream, this serveware and bakeware creates a fresh and inviting backdrop for your meals. Plus, these dishes look crisp and bright displayed on a kitchen shelf, a buffet table, and more. Best yet, the Bee-lieve pieces work well with with other spring patterns, like All a Flutter and Garden. Mixing and matching my more neutral designs with more patterned pieces is a great way to get more use out of all your collections... I even like alternating dinnerware sets on the same table!

So, as you gather your family and friends around your table, let the humble bumble bee remind you to believe in your inner strength, to believe in the magic that’s all around us and to truly believe that anything is possible! Now that’s a great way to step into spring! 🐝

Honor the traditions of Passover...

Passover is a wonderful spring tradition in my home. Like many Jewish holidays, Passover is both deeply festive and filled with tradition. Throughout the eight days of Passover, family and friends join us in our celebration.  In addition to my traditional food, I always have my Seder plate on my table. Gathering with family and friends has been my mission when I started Temp-tations  20 years ago.  Make new memories and gather with your friends and family this spring season.

Now that we have set the table and decorated your home, let’s talk food...

I love cooking and baking for my friends and family so we can gather around the table and share throughout this beautiful time of year! I’ve curated several great recipes for spring in my recipes library, but a few of my absolute faves are: Easter Surprise Cupcakes, Spring S’mores Dip, Bunny Deviled Eggs, and Pascha.
