My Easter Mantel

I don't know why but I usually find myself decorating with the color lavender at Easter time.
Instead of pinks and blues and yellows.

I found a lavender plant at the nursery and it is full of buds, but hasn't bloomed yet so I ended up
 using faux lavender.
The lavender candles are from World Market and I added them to my mantel.

I made a simple banner using scrapbook paper and stencils and painted the eggs in the nest
so they would pop.

I tied some lavender ribbon around my bunnies neck and placed a lavender egg in a cream egg cup.

I pulled in some chairs from the living room.

The gray and purple pillows are from World Market and I looooove them!!

For fun I decided to switch out the "fancy" chairs and try out my Kubu chairs.
Not sure which I like better!

I love having a festive mantel! It really helps me get excited for holidays.
I'm so looking forward to dying Easter eggs with my youngest son for the first time this year.

I've had this concrete bunny for about 9 years and a couple of weeks ago his nose fell off.
Poor bunny! :(

Happy Easter!

  6. Lisa,
    Just gorgeous. Have a wonderful Easter today with your family. Enjoy the day.

  7. It's beautiful - love the purple! And you did it in a way that you can just take down the Easter banner but keep everything else up all spring - smart girl!

  8. Lisa, the lavender color is so unexpected but really pretty! :)

  9. Love it! Your fireplace is great! I love the mantle and I know you will enjoy decorating. I would love a clean slate. Sometimes I'd just like to move everything out and start over. Lovely home!
