Spring is in the Air is this month’s bunny-filled Pinterest Challenge and our inspiration came from Lisa of A Simply Styled Nest on Instagram. Lisa has graciously allowed us to use her Instagram photo to share with you. Thank you, Lisa!
I’d like to also thank to Cindy who writes the very cool farmhouse styled blog County Road 407 for hosting today’s hop, thanks Cindy!
We have a fun group of designers and decorators sharing their beautiful Easter + Spring centerpieces with you today…
If you are coming over from Carol at Bluesky at Home or are new to French Ethereal, welcome!
Let’s get hopping, shall we?
Some bunny loves me
Is the title of my spring centerpiece as sweet bunny rabbits are always fun to decorate with! Spring is in the Air lends itself to rabbits and eggs as there are so many possibilities for decorating with them for spring, Easter and Passover.
Rabbits are historically a symbol of new life being that many litters of rabbits are born in the springtime. The symbolism behind eggs is also a sign of new birth and life so both feature prominently in today’s basket centerpiece.
|Mr. Rabbit has had a little media press each year and you can
find his posts here and here.
For this table setting
I immediately noticed that Lisa used a wooden dough bowl as the base of her table’s centerpiece. Recently I purchased this painted whitewashed tobacco basket and thought it would work well with my Easter theme.
Bring the garden indoors
I had this bag of all-purpose moss that I found at Joann Fabrics last year. I used it around a little spring dried floral pot but had plenty left over for this project.
The beauty of moss is that it can be refreshed with just soaking it in water for a minute or two then letting it dry on a towel. Such a quick way to revive it and make it to puff up a bit ~ perfect for creating a natural look to any Easter or springtime display!
A sweet Easter ornament I found last year plus two metal
chocolate molds I picked up at the cash and carry sales during
High Point Market.
|The goodies I started with… Fun plastic eggs and candies
picked up at The Dollar Tree.
To make a similar arrangement
*Look around your home for a similarly shaped basket or find one at
your local thrift shop or hobby store. One with a handle would be really cute ~ I have a handled flower gathering basket coming from storage which we used as our little bridesmaid’s basket at our wedding ~ so fun to repurpose these older baskets.
* Pick up an assortment of chocolate rabbits and egg shaped candies
to use for your themed basket.
*Add in a piece like this cement garden rabbit along with vintage chocolate molds, plastic Easter eggs and anything with a sweet bunny rabbit or two on it to fill in your basket.
*Use a little floral foam to help prop up your items then decorate with strips cut from the sheet moss. You’re done! 😉
|Photographs taken on our first day in our new home.
As this was our actual first day in possession of our new home I quickly put this tablescape together for you. The previous owners were stopping back by later on so I used some of the plastic eggs and candies and made a little nest for their daughters.
Aren’t these girls adorable? They are young gymnasts and just the sweetest!
Mom and Dad graciously allowed me to share
these two cuties with you today. Thanks, Mom and Dad!!!
Later on I found this little guy who wanted to
get in on the action, too…
I’d sure love it if you’d share my pin, thank you!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
