Hi everyone. I just wanted to share some of the things I have been up to with decorating for Easter. My Easter eggs this year have all been hand crafted by my niece and nephew. They used tissue paper and Mod Podge to decorate them with. I glued the ribbons around them.
I got the idea for the chocolate bunny on top from Kim over at Dear Sweet Home blogsite. Thanks Kim for the idea. I think it looks great as a topper to the egg tower. It looks good enough to eat, but can't because it's made of plastic. Kind of like the fake deserts you always see in the restaurants that always looks so good. The wreath underneath was an old wreath I've had for years and kept stored in the basement. I took off the old flowers and wrapped this garland around it.
Here is my bunny arrangement I made and placed our buffet table. It is an old urn that also was stored in the basement that has been brought back to life. I used the same plates as is on the table to set it in. That way if there are more people coming for dinner, we have more plates. I purchased the bunny and the eggs on sticks from Hobby Lobby. The flowers were some I had stored in the basement as well. (I tend to keep things in the basement for awhile sometimes, but as you can see they can be brought back to life quite nicely.)
Here is how it fits in our powder room downstairs. Notice the Springtime wreath above it on the mirror. We have several pictures that we have taken and done similar things with. I'll try to post some of those later. We have found out that you don't have to spend a fortune on really cool pictures to hang on the walls or place on furniture. You just have to have a little imagination and you can take almost anything cheap, or run down and turn it into something nice.
That's all for now, but keep checking back as I am always keeping busy with new decorating ideas and stuff around the house.
