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!
These are so adorable! So cute that they are veggies! Love it! xoxo SuReplyDelete
Yes I do decorate for Easter, not as much as Christmas but little touches here and there. Love the faux rabbit and those stunning carrots.ReplyDelete
Hey Mama, I bought just a few at first and thought I could get crafty like you and make them, but when I found them at 40% off at Hobby Lobby it was cheaper to buy them than make them.Delete
Cute! Not much decorating here for Easter..... Some crosses and glass eggs and possibly spring flowers, maybe.ReplyDelete
I decorate for Easter too, in fact I just got my stuff out yesterday.ReplyDelete
These are super cute! I don't decorate for Easter but I bake Easter-themed cookies.ReplyDelete
Love those carrots and that they aren't a solid orange. So cute! I won't decorate for Easter this year because my stuff is all stored in a warehouse---darn it.ReplyDelete
Love that you have your twinkly lights up for Easter, too. xo Diana
I can't wait to see your mantle! I'm sure that it will be gorgeous!! Have a wonderful week. PS I miss Hobby Lobby soooo much!!ReplyDelete
Oh, this is going to be so pretty. I am a real fan of faux food, etc. Right now I have some very realistic pastries on display in my kitchen. I have some adorable cabbages also. It's just so much fun!ReplyDelete
Everything looks great and will look terrific for Easter.ReplyDelete
Yes, I want to see the movie also. I will be decorating for Easter also, but not like I used to do. Just to much work for this old gal. LOL
Have a wonderful week.
Looks like you are going to have fun with all those new Easter goodies!ReplyDelete
I love your faux vegetables!! I found some pink carrots a few years ago in Michaels and i like to use them in my Easter display in the Dining Room on the buffet. I do think I now need to find a cabbage head though!! LOL!!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for stopping by and for your encouraging words. I will continue to post but no longer on my self imposed schedule and when i feel I have something interesting to share....
Oh my goodness, just darling!! I need some carrots immediately. :)ReplyDelete
Oh, those are really cute! They'd be fun on my Easter wreath -- I'll have to check them out!ReplyDelete
love the faux carrots and will have to head to HL soon! Who would of thought they have faux blueberries too!ReplyDelete
Cathy, check out their faux tomatoes. They are so real looking my husband thought they were real.Delete
The greens look so real! Love the whole theme - the mantel is going to be so cute! The grands will really enjoy it, I think! - Yes, I decorate for all the holidays <3 xx KarenReplyDelete
