Sideboard Decorated for Easter




 


With Easter almost upon us, I thought I'd share how I've decorated my sideboard for this very special occasion. 
Actually, I used to call this piece of furniture a "buffet" but that seems to mean more of a style of eating to me so now I'm calling it a sideboard.  I hope I'm not confusing anybody!


You will notice I've used a neutral colour scheme and once again, avoided my-not-so-favourite-pastels.

 
I began with two of my brown birdcages decorated with ivy on each end of the sideboard.  This one holds white tulips and a birdie on a nest.




A white bunny sits next to the matching, but smaller birdcage at the opposite end.


 
 
Center-stage showcases faux blossoms, egg-filled vases and a weathered cross beside a birdie on a pedestal.

A reminder of the true meaning of Easter
 
 
 
 
A white bunny who used to be pink (see HERE for her previous look - spray paint does wonders!)

  Are you almost ready for Easter?
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Oh my goodness, your matel is stunning!! I love everything in it, specially the two cages all done up for spring. The bird in the pedestal, the eggs in the stands and the great Mr. Bunny! Lovely.
Big hugs,
FABBY

Beautiful sideboard, I love that it is not pastels, I always enjoy seeing what you have come up. The birdcages are perfect. I have only one and need to use it in a vignette soon. So much inspiration here!!

I have to call my sideboard the buffet because with 7 of us eating every night having it served buffet style works better than passing dishes.

I love the natural feel of your sideboard and don't miss pastels at all.

Beautifully done. Love the use of neutrals, white, dark wood and bronze. You've created a beautiful Easter statement with many layers of richness. Very sophisticated. I've saved this post for future inspiration. Thanks for sharing. Happy Spring. ~CJ

So many beautiful elements on your sideboard. What a great idea to spray paint the pink bunny. I have some bunnies who could use a good white spray. I love the two cages and the way you elevated the eggs in the candle holders. I also love the pretty cross as the centerpiece of this scape. laurie
