Lynette over at Lynette’s L.A.M. blog is hosting an Easter Decor party. Lingering cool temperatures and nonstop work on a silent auction have almost let Easter slip up on me…but come on in….the bunnies are multiplying like…..well, like bunnies :)
Remember last year’s Pier One moss “bunny on a stick”? He’s hopped onto my spring wreath. He’s a versatile and compliant little bunny and sometimes hops from place to place as I need him :) .
The chest in the foyer, for me, is the essence of Easter. The Bradford pear trees are in full bloom here and the ground is covered in white again---this time in petals. The sage looking bunny with the big feet provides a bit of whimsy. The egg, a symbol of renewal, on the Arthur Court pedestal was a gift to me several years ago. I have since looked for more, but have never found one. The cross, which stays here year round, is at Easter a reminder of the Resurrection. Let’s go into the den. Caution: rabbits at play here :)
I am cursed with mantel issues—I have never (really, never) been pleased with the way it looks. Changing things around with a few of my favorite bunnies and some “faux” forysythia helps temporarily.
This is the hearth bunny. He likes this spot (luckily, because he weighs a ton :) and is not particular about his diet. He eats poinsettias at Christmas, ferns in the spring, and mums in the fall.
This little bunny, a Christmas gift, is making his debut this Easter. He is a McCarty bunny made by potters in Merigold MS. He still looks a little timid, but I’m sure he’ll be welcomed into the fold!
One more bunny to keep watch over the stargazer lilies---is there anything that smells better? For me, it’s a close call between these and gardenias.
Bunnies are running rampant in the kitchen too---one to watch over my morning tea kettle….
Smiling ones ones on the oven doors…
Crouching on the sideboard…..
Even a cute little girl bunny in her Easter frock to hand you some tulip soap in the powder room!
Thanks Lynette! I am joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday as well. If I don’t see you again…Have a happy and blessed Easter! Thanks for stopping by :)
