Easter Decor in a Trunk

This display was an unexpected addition to my Easter décor this year. 
I had purchased a wooden trunk to keep blankets and pillows in when they need to be removed from the loveseat and chairs in the living room. 
However, the decorator in me found another not-so-practical use for it.

Filling it with Easter décor like this cute bunny seemed like the logical thing to do!



And before long, an Easter display evolved.

This sleeping lamb found a spot to snuggle on the one fuzzy blanket I did put in the trunk.

A burlap sack filled with colourful eggs was added to the display.



I always like a reminder of the TRUE reason for Easter and this rugged cross fit right in.



A little birdie sitting on her nest was perched on the end of the trunk.





This bunny was from HomeSense a couple years ago.

The lamb is from Pier 1 about three years ago.

The burlap sack was from a unique gift shop in Winthrop, WA where we stayed on one of our travels last summer (loved it!).

The addition of some white blossoms in the back of the trunk really gives it that spring look even if there's still snow outside the window.

Hmmm...I now wonder if this trunk will ever be the functional blanket box I intended or is it destined to contain seasonal décor.  Based on the amount of fun I had creating this display, I'm guessing the latter!

What a darling vignette. The lamp caught my eye with it's sweet face. Love the flowers! So true the real meaning of Easter, we all sometimes forget. Thanks for sharing at DI&DI.

Lori,
I'd say you've found the "perfect" use for your trunk, dear friend!
I adore all the accessories within, especially the cross!
Fondly,
Pat

So cute- just my style! I have that little lamb too- so cute. I got out my cross and have it in a vignette now. It is important to remember what Easter is really about. I do love the cute decorations and can't resist using them too! I have a feeling the trunk has a new place in the home for decorating! I think I'm going to look for one of those ladders for holding my throws.

Lori, there's a lot of Easter decorating in blogland right now but I'd say this vignette is exceptionally pretty. Pinning.
