Pale blues and serene greens can really change the mood of a space. No need to break out the paintbrush or buy a new sofa to get those peaceful, chill Spring vibes. Instead, focus on layering colored accents into your existing decor—adding a blue frame or candle on a living room console, placing a porcelain glass vase full of fresh flowers artfully on a mantel, and showcasing crystal topped containers can all enhance your room’s positive energy.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be part of a great production, here in Bergen County, and sing the role of Emperor Altoum, sung in the past by the greatest comprimarios.  Being a part of this production of Turandot brings back many memories being part of this opera at the Teatro Petruzzelli in Bari, Italy in a chorus of over 100 and assimilating Puccini’s great music on that enormous stage,” said Simone.

Fun Easter Decorating Ideas

1866709_originalHello everyone! How are you all doing today? Yesterday I decided to get out and start getting everything ready for Easter.

The best part of Easter at our home is the egg hunting. I might have more fun with that than the kids!  I really enjoy decorating our home for this time of the year but I like uncomplicated and easy Easter decorating ideas. I’m not sure about you, but I invest so much time and effort to decorate our home during Christmas that I don’t want to spend too much time and money with Easter decorations.

Like any kind of decor, I like to buy reusable things so I can collect them over the years. I also like to mix the reusable pieces with fresh flowers and plants to add more color and a more natural feel to the decor.

Take a look at these Easter Decorating Ideas. You’ll see that most of them are easy to do and they really won’t take much of your time.

I hope these Easter Decorating Ideas can inspire you to have an even more special Easter this year!
