i think the real reason is that i just do not like pastels. oh i like light colors, white, cream, grey and the lightest of browns. every now and then even pale blue but it has to have a bit of grey in it. so i do not do pastels for easter decorating, instead i use lots of browns and whites.
these cute little eggs, wrapped in strips of paper torn from a french book, are cozy in a nest that sits on an urn.
the perfect color of toasty brown.
spanish moss in a jar with a few eggs is so easy to create. a white rabbit next to a large cream crackled egg sits on my entry table.
this tall rabbit i love. i changed out his pink bow to a chocolate one and i like him even more. he sits on the mantel in our living room.
aaahhh looky there...some blue! i tuck nests here and there and some are filled with eggs. most of these i will keep up all spring.
i just love the simplicity of this white rabbit and like how he really stands out from the green plant he sits in front of.
little brown cast iron rabbit sits quietly on my other mantle waiting for the easter bunny to tuck a filled egg next to him.
so if you are also one that does not do pastels..... do not worry that you can not decorate for easter. just go with the more natural colors of springs. happy easter!
