My Easter Mantel {and other touches!)

Easter is still a month away, but I needed a little ray of sunshine given all the sadness of the past week.

Since creative energy is the BEST mood booster ever, I pulled out my Easter and spring stash. I managed to get my mantel completed, as well as a few other little spring touches.  Later in the week, I'll move on to my front door and entryway.

I normally do a bright and whimsy Easter mantel (think coloured eggs, gerber daisies, and a Happy Easter garland), but I decided to go a different route this year.  It's a little more muted and understated than usual.  But I am liking how it turned out. I really like how the 'vintage' bunnies look with the boxwood wreath and potted grass.

















So what do you think? Would love your thoughts!

Wow! It's gorgeous! I love it all! Decorating for Easter can tend to get too cutesy anc cluttered (at my house anyways!) But you have created a really classy, yet whimsical and charming vignette! It's beautiful!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
Amanda

I love it, Kerri! It's just the right amount of Easter and still says Spring. I love your bunnies and how you used all the eggs. I especially love your chalkboard sign announcing the Easter Egg hunt.

Great mantle decor! I love how the robin's egg blue provides the perfect 'pop' of color to a perfectly understanded color scheme.

I got here from Beth on A2Z. Very nice decor!! Would you mind sharing where you got the eggs on your mantel?? Love those!

Hi Susan! I've had those eggs for a few years now; but I think I originally found them at Winners (in Canada). You might want to try Marshall's in the US, as I think both stores are owned by the same company; they always have similar stock. It's worth a try! Thanks for stopping by. Kerri
