Easter Decor Ideas

I love decorating for Easter.  Maybe it's because I love bunny rabbits and little lambs.  I also love the pastel colors, especially the pinks and greens.

Let's have a look!





At the center of my Easter decor are my faux-chocolate rabbits.  I have slowly been picking up these chocolate rabbits across the country. The big one is from the Midwest, the little one on the right from the Northwest, and the egg one from Southern California.

I love the big one especially, imagine if it were really made of chocolate! Also love the pink and green little egg on the left, you can hide things in it!



I've been on the faux-chocolate Easter egg hunt for years.  The one below is my newest faux-chocolate Easter rabbit/egg this year. I've never seen one like it, so I knew I had to take it home with me the second I saw it!
how cute
Last year in my Easter basket sat this darling thing, a Steiff chick in a porcelain egg!  She imitates the little chick in the egg in the picture behind her!



I found this vintage Spring hanky at an estate sale and just had to include it.  It's actually a 3D type hanky, as some of the tulip petals actually flip open in real life!


My other little Steiff bunnies sit in front of their chocolate companion.  As you can tell, I collect little Steiff Easter animals.



My vintage Easter scenes...


My little lamb collection sits on another table. All mohair, all Steiff. Their stuff is cuter than all the other stuffed little lambs in my opinion.



I just love the le lapin pitcher full of lavender from the garden! (really, our garden!).

The far left has little vintage chick scenes... they didn't photograph well in the light.

    1. Happy Easter to you too! The nice thing about the faux chocolates is that I'm not tempted to eat them!

  2. Pretty Easter decor. I've been adding faux chocolate bunnies as I find them, but not many available this yea. I mix mine in with the vintage bunny chocolate molds. Thanks for sharing!
