Vintage Easter postcards are so beautiful, wouldn’t you agree? I have been collecting old cards for many years but there’s just something about vintage Easter postcards that I love the most. The images of vibrant spring colors, sweet flowers, fluffy bunnies, tiny chicks, little birds, festive eggs and religious sentiments make the postcards perfect inspiration for creating festive Easter vignettes around the home.
Here I have gathered my collection of vintage Easter postcards in a tobacco basket to create a colorful flatlay with old marble eggs and dainty crochet ribbon.
“Bringing all the girls and boys, tobacco baskets full of Easter joys…” (As a music teacher, I can’t help but to think and write in song…)
“May your heart feel all the gladness of Easter…”
I have always loved using vintage postcards for the holidays. As you “Follow The Yellow Brick Home” you will often see them in my decor. A few years ago I created a very “farmhousey” tablescape with this cute “Easter Greetings” bunny postcard. I like to get creative with holders for my postcards. My favorite holder is usually some type of vintage floral frog. Here I used a tiny floral frog in an old light socket for a “salvaged junk farmhouse” centerpiece on my 100 year old farm table.
Currently I am using a wire picture frame holder to display some of my Easter postcards in the kitchen alongside a chicken wire basket filled with the vintage marble eggs. I often rotate these postcards in and out and use them in different vignettes in other parts of the house.
I have an antique mirrored shelf in my dining room that I always decorate with holiday vignettes. This year I found some lovely Easter eggs with a vintage image of a blue cross and some daffodils. I used one of them with my “Best Easter Wishes” religious postcard for a pretty ode to the true meaning of Easter. If you don’t have any of your own vintage postcards you can always find free printables online. I loved this little French postcard from The Graphics Fairy. I printed it out to use in a sweet little shabby frame.
This is a photo of the same shelf from last Easter. I used some transferware dishes that are actually from Thanksgiving (turkeys images inside the cups) in this Easter vignette. The colors of the teacups looked so perfect next to my secular “Best Easter Wishes” vintage Easter postcard.
I recently shared my spring living room tour, with my coffee table all styled up for the season. I also have a spring birds theme going on so I thought this card with the pretty nest was a perfect addition to the display. The sweet little birds are singing, chirping and tweeting their “Easter Greetings” to you!
“Here’s Easter Gladness For You…” especially if you are as crazy about shabby-chic white decor and brocante style as I am!
Next to the staircase in my living room I have a small wooden table decorated with an easy spring vignette I just threw together. I used some colorful books, a faux pink peony in a green bottle and pretty pastel eggs in a little cheese tray (which reminds me more of a miniature dough bowl)… so cute!
I love this vintage Easter postcard trimmed in pink which is barely tucked down in with some speckled eggs. No fuss, just a couple of touches to wish family and guests “A Joyful Easter.”
When the gentle spring arrives to herald Easter tide
I hope it’s radiant joy shall light your pathway far and wide
As I close this post this too is my wish for you dear readers and friends—that radiant joy shall light your pathway far and wide! John 8:12-I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but have the light of life.
So many gorgeous vignettes Amber! I too love vintage postcards. Thanks for sharing them with SYC.April 18, 2017 at 2:39 am
