Wow- I just realized that Easter is in a week and I’ve never finished putting out all of my decorations! The chocolate look-alike bunnies are still sitting on the sofa and the big moss bunny is up in the attic. Where did the time go? At least I knew where my set of bunny and duck plates were this year so I could set a fun Easter table. Last year when I wanted to use them, they were nowhere to be found. After finding them in an obscure drawer in the entertainment center (huh?), I finally got organized and put them away with the rest of the holiday dishes.
If I remember correctly, the plates came from Kroger. Who would think that a grocery store would have such cute accessories?
I simply placed the decorative plates on top of everyday white plates found at Pier One a few years ago. The napkins were folded into a pocket, where I stashed the silverware. Nothing fancy, that’s for sure.
I used some crystal highball glasses for serving juice and a vintage glass sherbet cup to fill with fruit.
Oh, but how the hyacinths smell so sweet and fragrant. Even the husband noticed them when he came into the room.
This small terrarium is my centerpiece; it’s filled with some reindeer moss and a few rocks.
I inverted a small terracotta pot and placed the saucer on top to hold an eggshell planted with some ivy.
This resin duck, found at a thrift store last year, is peering out from from his home within the glass walls of the terrarium.
I found these two chicks in Tipp City last month while on an outing with my friend, Kathy, from Creative Home Expressions. We had a good laugh about the chicks’ eyes even before I bought them- you see, they looked like they were, in Kathy’s words- “on crack.” They were really strange looking! Kathy and I both agreed that they look much better with the dab of white paint I gave them for pupils.
This deviled egg holder, with its bunny handle and polka dotted background is the perfect spot for my faux vanilla and chocolate eggs.
