We haven't seen the new Peter Rabbit movie yet, but we saw the movie trailers for it when we were at the movies recently.
I really love all the colorful plants and animals associated with the new Peter Rabbit movie and decided to gather up some vegetables and flowers to create a Peter Rabbit theme for Easter on our mantle.
Our four youngest grandkids (ages 3 to 9) will be here for spring break this year, and I'm hoping they will enjoy a colorful mantle.
I found the striped carrot bunches at both Pier One and Hobby Lobby. Pier One had lots of adorable carrot wreaths and banners, but they were way too expensive for my budget.
Hobby Lobby had the same striped carrot bunches for half the price as Pier One since Hobby Lobby's Easter decorations are already marked down to 40% off.
The colorful flowering cabbage I found at The Frisco Mercantile on my last visit. As Texans say...it was high-dollar...but so pretty I had to buy one!
The blueberry stems and smaller green cabbages are from Hobby Lobby and were a great price at just a few dollars each.
Here's a group shot of the mixture of veggies. Can't you picture Peter Rabbit having a good time in this mix?
I cleared off the mantle and started rounding up some faux mustard greens and a tiered wire basket I had on hand.
In addition, I'm going to use the faux flowers, watering can, and the bunny in the picture below, all things I found around the house.
How about you? Do you decorate for Easter or just a few of the major holidays?
Poinsettias and Greens Finally Got Put Away
I have to admit I still had some Christmas decorations up on the mantle until I took them down just the other day.
I left the Christmas twinkly lights up for Easter though. What's a holiday without twinkly lights?
Thanks for dropping by!
