Decorative Easter Touches- Part 1

You'll find a lot of bunnies around my house at this time of year!  This little one is sneaking away with a cabbage loaded with Easter eggs!  Once he delivers the eggs his prize will be the cabbage and all the carrots!

Using a dessert plate as a decorative accent!

I didn't expect to be using my Easter Egg Basket in this location but it all kind of fell together.

As I was taking pictures I noticed I could see the dining table in the mirror so let's go ahead and move over there now!

I started with a big cabbage leaf placemat below, then added a wreath and set my bunny in the center. The pink eggs are hand painted wooden ones I found as a set at T.J. Maxx this year.  I just tucked them in randomly on the wreath plus a little bunny with a pink bow.

Several years ago Pier 1 had those yellow chicks with bunny ears and I thought they were rather humorous!  I just realized that pretty much everything in this table arrangement is from Pier 1.  I enjoy the sisal bunnies and had to resist a lot of their new stuff this year although I did pick up the cute little bunny in pink!

This bunny with the egg cart came from a little shop up in Petoskey several years ago and was featured as a centerpiece for one of my tablescapes as seen "here" if you would like to see it!

I pulled on the color yellow a bit more this year.  I do enjoy the traditional colors of Easter decorating and since my birth month is March I think I've always embraced the festive Easter decorating.
I did a tablescape in 2014 with a more religious theme if you care to view it this is the "link".

A walk through the past...

This is me on the left and Jennifer on the right (that just had the back surgery) and one of my older sister's Sherry posing one year at Easter.  My mother made most of our outfits when we were younger.  We also wore these outfits to a birthday party just down the street. 😊

This my Aunt Lavina that we just lost late last summer (age 96) at one of our Easter get-togethers.  She and my uncle Ray always brought us a chocolate Easter bunny!
Thank goodness for the wonderful memories!

Joining the following blog parties:


  1. Love it all especially the fabulous pic and bunnies. How fun. Easter dresses were so much fun to pick out.

  2. Such great memories of past Easters Liz. Love seeing the pictures. I remember dressing up in easter dresses too. Such great memories. Love your bunnies. I think your big bunny could be partnered up with my big Mr. bunny. I think they would make a great couple. Your Easter decor is so cute. Have a great start to the new week.

  3. So many cute bunnies. The pictures from your childhood are very special. I sewed many of my girls' party dresses too. Good memories.

  4. Liz, you have a lovely home, thanks for sharing. I like how u cleverly used a wreath in your cute centerpiece. I'm holding off Easter decorations and tableware until next weekend, because I'm enjoying St Patrick's Day stuff too much. Too little time between holidays! My fav part of post was the photos! My mom made all our Easter dresses too! With matching coats some years. I just lost my beloved great aunt in her nineties too. A ripe old age as they say, but gosh I feel blue! She was a gentle, dear soul.

  5. The yellow chicks with the bunny ears are adorable! How could I have missed those? The centerpiece is soooo cute - love the idea of using the wreath. My favorite though is the table vignette.

  6. Very sweet Easter decor Liz. Love your collectibles. Too funny those darling little chicks with rabbit ears. I see anything goes. It's fun being creative with wreaths, cabbage place mats and more.

  7. Love your Easter decor. I deliberately have NOT gone to Pier 1 this year, LOL. It is dangerous for me to go in there;) Love the pictures, I loved getting all dressed up for Easter! Great memories!!!


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!
