Spring + Easter Baskets!

Although we have had a very mild {yet, wet} winter, I am certainly ready for Spring. I realize everyone is saying that, but Spring just sounds so good...and then comes summer, and that's when we will have a new baby! While browsing Pottery Barn Kids I came across some seriously cute stuff. And then it dawned on me I HAVE to order Weeks' a new Easter basket. For the past several years I have waited too long and they have sold out of the liners or the basket that I wanted. By the way, I have looked and looked, and nothing really compares to the PBK baskets and liners ;) My Mom got Weeks a PBK basket for his Easter basket at their house, but we still need one for us! Tip from me: don't wait on a huge sale for these because they are a hot commodity! Plus, they are currently running a 20% off special anyway.

Before we get to the baskets, here are a few fun Springy things I found. How gorgeous is this crepe paper wreath?! I am semi-obsessed. Not only for Spring, but it might be just darling in a little girl's nursery hanging over the crib! 


Fresh doormats are a great way to welcome a new season. They get old and tired looking, and Spring is the time to bring in something whimsical like this one.


How sweet is this apron for a little helper in the kitchen?


These family tote bags are on major sale and such a good deal. I am a big fan of this gray stripe and it would be the perfect bag for pretty much anyone. We take a lot of quick weekend trips and this is the perfect size for the car, or even on the beach!


And for the Easter baskets, here are my picks! I am going with an uber classic look with gingham, and I like the navy since it isn't quite as babyish. 


I prefer the natural basket, and of course we have to get the large size for extra room for treats!


I'm debating on going ahead and getting baby girl her basket for next year as well, and the pink gingham is timeless, but again I will use the natural color basket.

We have some pretty weather on the horizon for this weekend and I am thrilled. We are cooking out burgers {pretending it will be warm} and having happy hour {I'll be pretending the margarita is the real thing} and we have company in town! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Gah, PBK always has the cutest stuff!! Love that doormat. All their tiny tablescapes for Easter have me swooning too!

Love the Easter baskets! I ordered the large natural with navy liners for my boys too. I ended up taking mine to a local shop to get them monogrammed because I wanted red and PBK wasn't offering that color. They turned out so cute! Hope you get them and love them like we do! Enjoy the nice weather this weekend!

This post just got be SO excited for Spring! I'm so tired of the snow and dreary weather we've been having up here in DC. I'm popping over to PBK to order Miss Sully a basket now for her first Easter. So glad you suggested this! Oh and that wreath, don't get me started, so gorgeous!

My son is a few months younger than Weeks, and our new baby (another boy) is due to arrive in July.... I JUST ordered both of them easter baskets from PBK last Friday because for the last 2 years, I've waited - thinking I would score a major deal - and like you said - they were all sold out of the ones I wanted! So this time I just bit the bullet and did get the 20% off. (Plus an additional 20% coupon I had). I went ahead an ordered one for #2 as well because we already have his name chosen and because I want the boys' baskets to match. And knowing my luck, if I wait until next year, the liner will be discontinued, or the basket will be a different style. So I agree with you - order now! And I think you should totally order Baby Girl a basket also!
