This page in my Pottery Barn catalog was earmarked. I loved the spring feel. I preferred yellow to pink but “What a pretty Easter vignette”, I thought. Then I added up the cost of things I wanted. “$200!” Yikes. Keep dreaming.
Dreaming can be reality. If it’s too big for your budget, DIY! The result will be more personal and more rewarding (and cheap)!
trip to Michaels for faux Forsythia, paper mache eggs and ribbon and using things I already had including Deco Art
‘s Americana Gloss Enamels, Acrylic and Dazzing Metallics craft paints, pitcher, Sharpie, pins and existing ceramic Easter bunnies
…here is my version for under $20.
I’ll probably still re-arrange things for the next month but I love my version.
Pouting because she couldn’t be on the dining room table to help, Lalka sat nearby contemplating her Cadbury Bunny audition. 🙂
Here is how it looks from the kitchen…
The mantel in the dining room gets a spring-makeover too.
I found the yellow/brown ice bucket (exact Forsythia colors) and marble eggs at Good Will.
I just added some other coordinating things from around the house. And the sweet clay tag from my friend Jami at Freckled Laundry
is so cute.
What do you think? Not typical Easter-y but I think it works with the yellow/white theme.
