Easter is right around the corner and everyone in my house is very excited. My 3-year old daughter asks me every day “Is the Easter Bunny is coming TODAY?! “
Easter is among my favorite holidays. I love the pastel decor, the celebration of resurrection and new life and the fresh, easter dresses (!) and the happy, “spring” feeling that comes at this time of year.
I don’t usually do much to my mantel, and having a new house it took a bit of thought to decide how to decorate my new (very white) mantel/fireplace. My house was painted all white (as you have seen in my kitchen HERE and my daughter’s room HERE) so I decorate with neutrals and texture to make it more interesting. Light blue is my favorite color, so going that route was kind of an easy choice.
I made the EASTER sign out of a wooden plaque from Michael’s and traced some letters, then painted them. My daughter and I painted some kraft paper eggs light blue together, and Christy sent me the light blue cut-out of a bunny which I backed with scrapbook paper and framed.
This little green guy came from Pier One. Don’t they have the best Easter decorations every year?
I hope its feeling very spring-like where you are, I am SO happy it is starting to warm up here.
Did you see our new header? Yes, that’s us Magnolia Lane girls! Its a preview from our recent photo session with Jessica Oatman, we can’t wait to reveal our whole new look very soon.

I’m so ready for spring and Easter after seeing this mantel. Love the bunny silhouette. 🙂
I love your mantel! The blue eggs are so cute!
I have the same moss bunny from Pier One. I found it last year and put him in a small urn I found at Goodwill for $1!
Thanks for sharing!
