Time for a little Easter (coffee table vignette)

Hello sweet friends!

With Easter being early this year, it feels kind of weird to me to be decorating when it's still so cold outside & there's snow on the ground. Now I know how you Southern girls feel when you're decorating for Christmas and it's 80 degrees outside!

I've been giving my home the Easter treatment and I wanted to share my coffee table vignette with you.


This vignette was kind of inspired by Ricki Jill at Art @ Home.  Did you know she never uses faux flowers or greenery?  Not even when making a wreath!  It fascinates me, I'll tell you.   

I used an Easter egg table runner, a large flat basket, my real philodendron (which I placed in a wicker basket), an old book, and a shabby birdhouse.  I then placed my Dee Foust girl & bunny on top of a pedestal dish to complete the look.  

 
Simple and pretty...and I love the look of seeing some real greenery around here for a change.

LOL Imagine my surprise when I read this post, LOL! I was looking at the photos before I read it thinking how much I *heart* it....love the little Dee Foust girl and bunny. Adorable!

Greenery is what we need this time of year, I tell ya. We had snow flurries here all weekend!

By the way....LOVE the throw pillows on your sofa. They are all so pretty!!!

RJ

Gina - this is so precious! I love the whole thing, starting with that wonderful tray. The adorable girl and bunny just make the vignette. Beautiful job!!

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Your Easter vignette is just lovely, Gina! You always have such charming flair in your designs.

Yes, it is terribly difficult to get in the Easter/spring mood with it being so cold - I may not decorate at all! Haha! That'd be a first!

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

I love the girl on the bunny figurine. And very glad to see a real houseplant. I don't see very many in blogland. Mostly faux. I use faux even though I have some real ones!

Coastal Cottage Dreams said...

Lovely vignette, love the live plant in the planter too! The pillows in the background are so pretty too!

kitty said...

Gina, that vignette is soooo cute! I love how you displayed it all in your rattan tray. I have one on my coffee table, but I think I need to add some Spring decor like you!!

Nici @ Posed Perfection said...

I love this sweet coffee table vignette. You have such a great touch with putting all things pretty together and making them even more lovely. Hope spring comes soon for you ;-)
Blessings,

I just love that vignette-
so fresh and spring feeling.
Have a good week.

Your table scape is outstanding. Just enuf, not too much "stuff" on table. Wicker always makes me think of Spring. The tray is great. I'm embarrassed to admit, only kind of greenery I have is faux. Guess I'll have to work on that part.
It must have been a long winter everywhere this past year as everybody seems to be exceptionally ready for Spring and all it represents. Yeah for that. It's still wintery here in Western CO. One minute it's sunny, 50 to 60 then all of a sudden it's down to about 40, the wind is blowing, raining or snowing.
Last week I was getting ready to go out to find something for a project in a storage box on our back deck, when I looked out it was bright and sunny. Just the time it took me to get my shoes on, find sunglasses it was snowing and the temp had plunged. Not what I had in mind. I think it was Friday, we had gorgeous weather, 60. That's Mother Nature for ya'. Happy March

Shannon @ Cozy Place Called Home said...

Gina, your coffee table vignette is very very pretty. The live green plant adds such a fresh look to the spring theme. I really like the way you did it! Shannon

Shannon Fox said...

Hi G! love you sparkle bunny rider. how sweet. I sure need to catch up with you. Off to peek around. Shan

Bliss said...

Yeah I can't seem to think of anything other than the never ending Winter. Every time I think it's warming up more snow comes.

Susan said...

Beautiful vignette, I have a similar one on my coffee table.
I admit I always use silk greenery because I do not have a green thumb.

Cute vignette on your coffee table!
Can't say I don't agree...I love fresh greenery...

Sarah said...

Adorable! Dee Foust creates the cutest things. I like to use real greens and fresh flowers too. Just one of my quirks. '-)

Shelia said...

Hi Gina! Oh, I love your little Easter vignette! Cute little bunny. No, I can't believe that RJ uses only real flowers. I'm sure she does but you know what I'm saying... :) Just give me some fauxs and I'm good to go!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Gina that is a perfect vignette. The Dee Foust girl and bunny makes my heart skip a beat. I can't
keep anything green alive for more than a few days in my house.

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

So pretty Gina! I love the real greenery too! I wish I had the money I've spent on ivy... I buy it, it looks awesome... it dies.
The End.

Your Easter vignette is so sweet, Gina! I like the way you tucked in the ivy for some live greenery. Can't believe Easter is just around the corner. Didn't we just celebrate Christmas??
