With Easter quickly approaching, I decided that it was time to do a little tweaking and get my mantel ready for the holidays! For me, that was really easy because…
…I already had some wonderful urns filled with daffodils from my springy blue and yellow mantel. All I had to do was make a few changes…
…and voilà! Almost instant Easter! I still have my favorite blue and yellow color scheme…
…but the Staffordshire dogs have been replaced by a pair of paper mâché bunnies found at Goodwill several years ago for $1.91 each. (Don’t hate me!) They have been sitting in my stash just waiting for the perfect place…and I think I have found it!
In the center, the double happiness jar has been replaced by a collection of mis-matched blue and white candlesticks (also all GW finds) topped with candles and bird’s nests filled with bright yellow eggs. Oh….wait! Those are lemons! lol
I love the contrast of the bunnies with all the blue and white…just Eastery enough without being too cutesy!
And just in case you are wondering about the where-abouts of our illustrious co-host Baby Kitty, he is taking advantage of a sunny afternoon and sneaking in an extra nap! Hmmm...not a bad idea!
And there you have it…one final look…my mantel all dressed in its Easter best…just waiting for the real Easter bunny to arrive!
