Spring is almost here!


The official start to spring is almost here (March 20, 2020). Normally that is something to look forward to because it signifies the end of winter. However, winter wasn’t really that bad this year (I live in New York). We barely got any snow (thankfully). So dreaming of the non-snowy weather of spring is not something my family and I have been doing this year (or son is very disappointed about the lack of snow).

I have no started my spring cleaning (yet). I know I need to get it done, but I’m not exactly looking forward to it. Thankfully I did a lot of cleaning and organizing this past summer, so mostly what I need to do is refresh some things (curtains, carpet…) and some minor cleaning and organizing.

I am anxiously waiting for the opportunity to open up the windows and let fresh air in.

Our cats will LOVE the opportunity to sit outside on our balcony and take in the fresh air and sunshine. I wouldn’t mind that myself either.

Do you swap out your home decor to reflect the seasons? I do. I have several spring pieces I want to put out. I’m also looking forward to post-Saint Patrick’s Day so I can put out my Easter decorations.

I do enjoy decorating for Easter, but I don’t decorate for it as much as I do Christmas and Halloween. I used to decorate more for Easter when our kids were younger. These days I just put out some simple decorations.

We used to have holiday dinner with our extended families for Easter as well. Sadly, after the passing of both sets of parents, the siblings have all gone their separate ways. Easter dinner now consists of just me and my nuclear family. None to the less, I enjoy setting up a lovely table and cooking a fabulous holiday meal.

I’m sure many people are familiar with the brand Precious Moments. They are often associated with collectible gifts. Personally I have about a dozen Precious Moments figurines and sets that were giving to me by friends and family over the years for our wedding, anniversary, birthday, Mother’s Day, Christmas and more.

My husband used to give Precious Moment figurines out as gifts before we ever met. He gave all his nieces the pieces to the birthday train.

Precious Moments offers more to consumers than just lovely gifts. They also have beautiful home decor pieces. as well as pieces that will look wonderful on your holiday table. I was sent two such pieces to review.

Toss With Plenty Of Love Serving Bowl

  • This large serving bowl from Precious Moments is the perfect dish to turn to when hosting a crowd.
  • Designed with a motif that sets the scene for relaxed entertaining, it also offers a sweet sentiment that serves as a reminder of the most important ingredient – love!
  • Give this lovely gift to anyone who loves to cook or entertain. It makes a thoughtful gift for weddings, housewarmings, birthdays, and holidays with a design that will be treasured and used all throughout the year.
  • Carefully crafted of glazed ceramic, it measures approximately 5”H x 10.25” Dia. Microwave and dishwasher safe.

This bowl is HUGE. I didn’t realize just how big it was going to be. I saw the measurements, but they really didn’t “sink in” when it came to the size of this bowl. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good thing!

This beautiful bowl could be used for break, fresh fruit, salads and side dishes. It also looks good “as is” as a piece of home decor instead of a serving piece.

The bowl is heavy as well. Not too heavy, but you can tell that it’s a quality made piece.

As mentioned in the product description, this piece is not just for spring and/or Easter celebrations. It’s ideal for any entertaining situations. It also makes a lovely gift for a newly wed couple and a housewarming gift.

I love that the bowl is not a perfect circle. It’s hard to tell from the photos but the rim of the bowl is a bit wavy, which adds a nice detail to the piece. There is also a sweet little heart etched inside the bowl.

Moments Are Better When Shared Platter

  • Designed to be front and center for gatherings with family and friends, this stylish platter serves main dishes or scrumptious desserts while sharing a message of togetherness.
  • Whether holding delicacies or decorations, this platter allows loved ones to add a nature-inspired accent to their table all year long and makes a wonderful hostess, housewarming, wedding, or ‘just because’ gift.
  • This platter is crafted of ceramic and measures approximately 17”L x 12”W. Hand wash only.

This platter is a perfect addition to the serving bowl mentioned above.

This is a very large platter that could probably easily fit a Thanksgiving turkey (although I wouldn’t recommend carving on it). An Easter ham would look nice on this platter as well (I would cut it on a cutting board, not the platter). Vegetables, bread, desserts… you could serve just about anything on this delightful serving platter.

The overhead light “washed out” part of the text. The platter reads “Moments are better when shared.”

Some people like to display beautiful plates. I think you could easily display this piece as well (you would need something strong enough to hold it upright).

I love the saying on the platter, “Moments are better when shared.” That is so true!

The serving platter has the same “wavy” rim as the serving bowl.

There are other pieces available at on the Precious Moments website that would go great with these pieces.

I think these pieces would make a great gift for a newly wed couple. Family and friends could gift them a different piece to add to their collection.
