Carrots, Bunnies & Birds

Moving on with decorating for Easter, I created a carrots, bunnies & birds theme for my étagère in the living room. 

It's one of my favourite areas of our home to add seasonal décor to and I was pleased to do it without buying anything new. 

 Here's a full view look...

I'll also take you on a shelf by shelf tour.

Top shelf

I added a few embellishments to this carrots in a basket centerpiece.

I've had this metal looking bunny for quite a few years (actually made of resin).

Second shelf

An ears-up bunny sits in the grass beside a basket of carrots in this little case.

Third shelf

The centerpiece on this shelf is a wooden crate with cloth napkins, a nest of eggs and carrots.

Another one of the metal-look bunnies poses beside the crate.

On the other side, sits a carved-look resin birdie.

Bottom shelf

A trio of burlap bags in a wire basket are filled with Easter décor.

Some plastic eggs help add to the orange and green colour scheme.

A brown bunny perches by a carrot in the middle bag.

These orange lanterns are placed on a couple of the shelves.

A birdie in a ceramic Easter candy dish rests in a wooden box.

And that's my Easter Etagere for 2016.

Did you happen to like one shelf more than the others?
My favourite is the top one with this bunny beside the Pier 1 basket of carrots.

Thanks for visiting!

Your decorating is so cute! Carrots and bunnies are my favorites also! I love the color combination of the oranges, browns and greens, perfect! When I lived in WI back in the mid 90's, I started collecting carrots, still love getting them out every spring with my bunnies.

PS. just went back and checked out your Easter table from your side bar, LOVE IT! I really like that you incorporate orange instead of all the pastels that you see most of the time! Much more my style!

How darling everything looks! That suitcase really sends me. I have a suitcase that would be perfect as a centerpiece, so thanks for the idea there. St. Pat's and Easter are just too close for comfort for me this year. It seems that you have things well in hand though.
