Easter Mantel

After taking down my Valentine's Day mantel, I was left with a big question.

Now what do I do?

It was only February....too early for Spring (around here anyway),
and too early for Easter.  
It took some time, but I finally figured it out.  

I'll throw all caution to the wind & decorate for Easter anyway!

Welcome to my Easter Mantel.




I pretty much had everything that you see here already...
with the exception of that bunny on the left.
Don't you love it when you can decorate with what you have?
Let's get closer, shall we?


Here is that cutie now!
I just had to have him when I saw him at Pier 1.
Pitcher from TJ Maxx, a few year ago.
I bought the flowers last year, after Spring, on clearance.


The big Easter Greetings plaque was purchased 
last year at The Christmas Tree shop.  
It reminds me of a vintage post card for some reason.
This smaller bunny is also from Pier 1, a few years ago.
The pink pedestal compotes came from Joanns,
quite a few years ago.



I've had this chick in the egg for a couple years now.
It's by artist, Vicki Smyers.
I paired it with my favorite shabby chic candle holders.


I can't seem to remember where I bought these
vintage looking postcards.
I thought they'd make a cute banner,  strung up on a ribbon.

 
Are you busy decorating for Easter?
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Love the chick peeking out of the egg and the banner. You are a busy girl with those mantel decorations. I haven't even found my St. Patrick's Day decorations.

Wow, vintage-licious! I *heart* it! What do you call those cute little pink compote dishes.....they are so cute! Are they called cutwork or what?!?!??!

You have great decorations for Easter, love your mantel. So pretty and simple, you really aced your mantel. It looks so cheerful also, can't help but smile just looking at it. Makes me want to do my "mantel" which is a shutter shelf.
It's kind of a while between Valentines Day and Easter, especially if you're not a St. Pat's day celebrator. I do a little something but don't go all out as I do for other occasions. I love Easter and decorating for it. Looks like you do also.
Happy March

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

You have the most perfect mantle. I just love that little chick peaking from the egg.

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

I love all the details Gina. The card does look vintage -like to me also. I'm embarrassed to say my mantel is bare. When I took down Christmas, I was not inspired and then I dove into big projects elsewhere in the house. I have to say your mantel has inspired me to get something going with mine. You really have talent putting pretty things together. Happy Spring Gina!

Gypsy Heart said...

Gina, everything looks so pretty! I love that big bunny...and yes, it looks like a postcard. The other bunnies are adorable too. I used to decorate for Easter but really don't anymore. My mother passed away right before Easter and somehow it's never been the same.

Thanks so much for sharing your treasures!

Just egg-xactly what I needed to see this morning! I am taking a little break from working on my kitchen to dink with the spring tables and mantels. I love the whiteness of yours.

Maria Elena said...

Gina, you did a beautiful job! The mantle looks gorgeous! I love every detail. The pink compotes are fabulous! Very pretty!

Diane said...

Gina - this mantel looks wonderful. You have so many things that I could "borrow", if I lived closer. Those white candle holders for sure. I have been looking for white pillar candle holders and have not seen any that I really liked - love yours! Also, the pink compotes are lovely and all those bunnies are really, really cute!
