My Whimsical Easter Mantel

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Whimsical Easter MantelCan you believe Easter is only a week away? The Easter Bunny got a little late start at my house, but the mantel is finally ready…and just in time! Since the grands and their mom are living at my house now, I wanted to make it extra-special this year. So what better theme is there than bunnies and eggs!

I have to admit that I am looking forward to having that old rascal stop by my house, too! It’s been a while and I’m itching to hide some eggs and eat some chocolate! How about you?
