Spring is here and Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  
Ok, I say that about all the holidays.
But seriously, Easter is my favorite.
I love that it represents the risen Jesus and the hope of new life.
To decorate our mantle, I took inspiration from Pinterest and used lots of items found around our house.  The cute sign I bought on sale last summer at my favorite shop in Little Rock, The Full Moon.  They have an assortment of fabulous things that is ever changing, and they have really great sales a couple of times each year.  I even registered there for my wedding.    

The bunnies were inspired by a few Pinterest finds like this one, but I couldn’t find a pattern that was the right size.  I sketched one out and used it to cut the design out from several different colors of cardstock.  Then I glued little puff ball tails onto my bunnies and glued the bunnies onto a brown ribbon measured to hang across the mantle.

Super cute little baby bunny.  

I brought in 2 giant flowers that we’ve had since our wedding.  They decorated the gift table at our rustic barn reception.  I filled 2 of my Meme’s old blue mason jars with plastic eggs, inspired by this Pinterest find.  I added artificial flowers leftover from last year, and a sweet flocked bunny I won from a blog giveaway at Goodbye House, Hello Home a few years ago.

I love the color the eggs and bunnies and flowers bring into the room.  It feels like spring.

Our wedding and engagement pictures have been on our mantle for a while now, and I’m feeling it is time for a change.  I’ve searched for ideas and landed on a few that I’m working on.

  1. i love this becca! it does look like spring. you and i love the pops of turquoise! since having kids, i have this desire to celebrate Easter in a really big way…bigger than christmas. some traditions i am starting this year:
    1. we got big palm leaves from the dollar store and decorated them with ribbons and my 3yo and my 1yo march around once or twice a day shouting “Jesus is Coming”
    2. confetti eggs and a neighborhood easter egg hunt
    3. sharing a Christian Passover feast with friends and family
    4. a black table cloth on the table on Good Friday…and then a bright white one and loud praise music to wake up to on Sunday morning
    5. new, white Easter clothes for the family every year

  2. I love your bright colours! So cheerful and springy. I wanted to decorate our mantel for easter this year but just didn’t have time or opportunity. My lovely little girl did bring me home some beautiful spring flowers when my dad and sister took our kids out for a walk over the weekend though, so at least I have a little spring floweryness to brighten the place up 🙂
