Easter decorating is new to me. Every year I think this is the year I’ll really get on board. I eyeball the egg trees and plaster bunnies in outfits and can never quite pull the trigger. I’d love to do a whole vintage Easter Cody Foster, Jennifer Murphy Spring extravaganza but I haven’t started any collecting so this year is a bust. I did search in earnest for an Easter egg tree. I wanted something wooden and chunky and Danish and white. Maybe a candelabra? Couldn’t find anything. This weekend at Ikea I had my eyes peeled for something that might work and found the varmeljushallare.
I love this box so much I would have bought anything that came in this box. Luckily for me it was something that looked like eggs would fit in it.
Oscar and I dyed up some super bright blown out eggs to put in each of these candle holders. Didn’t really like how it looked though. Too much like big fat Christmas bulbs or something. Maybe just too much color. So I’m easing into Easter. I put together this little set up with our new favorite Playmobil bunny playsets, a branch from the backyard with some origami paper blossoms (blossoms idea from this month’s martha stewart) and some cut up thrifted placemat (more on this over at thriftcraft). Don’t worry Easter bunny — a few of the eggs are still hanging around.
