Decorative Easter Touches- Part 2

In the living room I decorated the mantel with a little more elegant look this year.

I loaded the big vase with the cherry tree blossom branches that I've used several times for my Easter Tree and nestled big carrots around the stems.  (I started with a large foam ball in the bottom so the stems would be supported and to add some height).  The bunnies are begging for those carrots!

This year I used some golden egg accents that I had in my stash.  I usually put up pastel painted eggs but decided to try a new look this year.  

The flowering tree branches came from Terrain a few years ago.  They have a very realistic look to them including a thick texture to the branches.

The two bunnies are lightly accented with gold.

My Lenox rose vase came in handy for the tulips.

I went out looking for pink or green candles but had poor luck so I finally decided these looked good just the way they were for this year's mantel.

A little bit more Easter on the wood top of the built in cabinet area.  

I set up a little tray with the paper mache style Easter Bunny and tossed some foiled eggs around.  The candle is newer- I was attracted to the woven willow candle holder it came with.  It's made by Park Hill and I selected the "Old Estate Magnolia" scent.  There must have been 15 different available scents.
They come with a brown paper wrapping on top held in place with twine.  They would certainly make a nice hostess gift to someone or for any other reason.  Once you're done with their candle then you can use the glass votive to burn any other one of your choice so it's a good investment.  I got mine at a store but I did google it and found various suppliers selling it but for some reason the prices jump around on them.  I'm not making any money on this but I did notice Amazon had a fair amount of choices.

Part 2 of my decorative Easter touches!



  1. Liz, everything is so pretty! I love that Lenox rose vase and can only imagine how pretty it is in person. All things Lenox are gorgeous.

  2. Very pretty. I think the light brown candles look great on your mantle. I love that color paired with white. The carrots in the vase are a fun touch. Well done.

  3. Beautiful mantel Liz. The tulips look so pretty in your Lenox vase. Gorgeous.

  4. Such a lovely mantel, Liz with the golden accents. Great idea to put carrots in the vase. Your Lenox vase is made for your pretty tulips. I spy your spring bulbs at the window. That's really going to be special when they bloom. ♥
