Spring Has Sprung

Yesterday dawned the first day of spring and, in addition to playing the yard all.day.long., we pulled out our Easter bins and prettied the house with all things bunnies and eggs!

The entryway received a basket of white french tulips and the dogs donned their white double faced satin ribbons.

In the foyer I simply added a green moss bunny.  I’ve had him and his mate for ages and still love to pull them out.  The silver compote with eggs and silver balls is out year round and already perfectly suited for the season.

On the cocktail table in the den, I added the smaller moss covered bunny and filled the antique rice bowl with a  nest and a handful of robin’s eggs.  I also added our Easter runner, chair backs (all from Pottery Barn Kids a few years ago) and white feathered tree to the littles’ table.

Just like last year, I filled our apothecary jars with chocolate bunnies and seasonal candies.  Also like last year, I told the littles that the candy is plastic until the Easter bunny comes and turns it real.  We’ll see if they’ll buy that little white lie for the next few weeks!  I also put our my favorite bunny silhouette tea towel.

Lastly, I swapped the hydrangea arrangement in the dining room for my bunny weather vane.  And after adding a few nests with robin’s eggs to the existing mercury glass and white china collection, I was DONE!

Best of all??  I didn’t spend a dime outside of candy!!

Spring has sprung around these parts, y’all!

  1. It looks really, really lovely. You did a wonderful job decorating for Spring/Easter. Let us know how that "plastic candy till the bunny comes" works for you! xo Diana

  2. Love all your spring touches. You have a beautiful home! I look forward to coming back in a few and browsing your blog some more!

  3. I just love it all!!! Can you come over and help me out with my house? :-) Our neck of the woods didn't get the memo about Spring coming and I'm sitting here watching snow falling…ugh!

  4. Lovely as always Amanda. I love your candy jars, I have something similar and I always tell the grands that the candy is really OLD and will make them sick. Of course, since I'm the grandma I have plenty of the kind they can eat too ~ my daughters aren't always happy that I send them home all sugared up:-)

  5. Oh, your home is just gorgeous and all ready for spring! Love that rabbit on your table top and you have so many pretty things.
    be a sweeti,

  6. Your home is just darling. I love coming to visit and see all the little touches you add for each change of season or holiday. I may have to borrow the chocolate bunny idea, too cute.

  7. Dearest,
    I am thoroughly mortified……..so much so that I had to get out my Spring blings too! Thanks for keeping me on my toes :-)

  8. Just love all your Easter & Spring touches around your home. You know just how to bring it all together.

  9. Looks lovely, might be my favorite one yet. I LOVE the weather vane — I seek all things bunny as MY baby bunny's room is decorated with them. Easter is my favorite time of year to pick up fun new things for the little girl's room. Now all eyes are out for the weather vane which would look utterly sweet on the top of her headboard.

  10. Hi…I found your link at No Minimalist Here and am so glad I did. Your blog is beautiful and so is your home. I would love to have one of those bunny weather vanes! I'm now a Linky and GFC follower. Nice to meet you…

  11. Your are inspiring me to pull out my Easter things. Great job from the front porch to the dining table. I'm really smitten with your bunny weather vane. Love your idea of using it on your table. ~ Sarah

  12. Wow, looks fabulous! Your home is lovely and yet so many boys live there! Great spring and Easter decor! Also love the moss bunny! Glad to find you, I'm your newest linky follower, hope to see you visit.

  13. Oh I love it all. The bunnies and all the pretty nests. How fun is that. The dining room looks so elegant and I drool every time I see your entry with the ruffled tablecloth, mirror and plates. I love seeing you use family pics in your decor too. Thanks tons for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  14. Hi I have just come over from the bunny hop.
    Your weathervane caught my eye.
    I have just made one, drop by if you get a chance. Love your decorating.

  15. Love all your decorations! I put up a Colorful Easter Table on A Stroll Thru Life (I was the last entry!)

    I love how you did your decorations throughout the house. That means i have to get going before my company comes tomroow. One table just won't do!
