Spring Centerpiece

Last year, I hosted Easter for 11, and had set 2 tables for dinner.  You can see them here.  We've been having a heat wave in the northeast(6 days in a row of record high temps here in Binghamton,) and it feels like summer not spring.  To capitalize on the warm weather, my MIL will be hosting Easter at the cottage this year.  Still, I don't like a naked table, so here is my simplified Spring Table Centerpiece.

I've had the little dollar store bunnies in vignettes in the past, but wanted to freshen them up a bit.  Luckily it's been spray painting weather, so outside they went.

And several thin coats of white and they had more of a bisque appearance.

I laid out some sheet moss, and placed my thrifted footed dish that I found here in the center.  I turned the segmented crystal dish upside down to create a platform for this lantern that I rescued from the curb.  I threw in some mossy rocks and called it done.

This centerpiece took no time at all and carries on the simple natural feel that I have in my Spring Mantel, too.

Thanks for popping in and decorating with me.  I'm linking this up to The Style Sisters' Centerpiece Wednesdays.

  3. This post makes me want to go through all my belongings and find something to spraypaint and make new. The bunnies are so cute in white!

  4. This is adorable and the spring heat spell just right for this kind of setting. You did a great job with the bunnies; think I prefer them white.

  5. I'm going to look more carefully at what people put out curbside from now on...the lantern is a terrific find! Great job on the dear bunnies. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay
