Here's the one I found on Pinterest. It is minimalist and classy.
Mine is not. I still like it though. You just bake a cake in a round cake pan - fill it up so it rounds on the top. Then, when it's cool, cut it in half stand the sides on end and smush the flat sides together. Put icing in the layers them frost the whole thing and press coconut into it. As the batter was mixing up in Justin, I thought that I would make the cake a soft color so it would be a happy surprise under all that white icing and white coconut. Well, you know me, I choose to use PINK food coloring, so now when I cut it, it is going to look like roadkill. Wah-wah. It's all wrapped up in the fridge, so I can't take a photo of it quite yet, but I'll add it later. 'Cause I just know you are on the edge of your seat. :)
I got my decorations out about two weeks ago, but time got away from me, so I kind of threw things up in a crowded fashion. I culled out a bunch of things to take to the booth, but not one thing has sold. I have never had much luck selling Spring or Easter things. I think people are more into Spring Cleaning and de-cluttering and not into buying.
Anyway, here's my stuff strewn about the house.
Love those big foil eggs. They are always on my thrift radar.
Annalee bunnies scored from the free bin at the thrift many years back. My fave.
Faux chocolate bunnies. Always a favorite. The foil "egg" in the center is an old cardboard trivet, but it looks like an egg to me. So, an egg it is.
I prefer vintage Easter or vintage inspired, but this big blue disco ball egg had to come home from the thrift. Paired with that crazy bird, it's a keeper.
Flocked bunnies in every color.
More flocked bunnies. The gold-ish one is new this year.
The white shelves. Chock full of vintage goodness.
A few favorite bunnies. The pink being a special favorite.
This little bunny girl is one of the first vintage things I ever bought of any kind.
She has her original 15¢ price tag on her bum.
A Magpie Ethel Chick and a vintage sequined egg.
Top of my hutch. I have so many more of those old Easter baskets, but I have a terrible time finding a place to display them.
The Rushton Lamb and duck were bought to resell. but well.
You know how that turned out, right?
Small Easter tree with some things from a swap I hosted many years ago.
Stieff rabbit and some random things. My swap contributions are the two handmade things.
I avoid Home Interiors things the same way I avoid Avon stuff. But, this little bunny family was a gift years ago from my Office "Secret Pal" and I love them. So much in fact that I have another set just in case. Do people still do "Secret Pals?" It was always fun until you got paired up with the back stabbing two faced bitch and had to be her pal and bring her nice things and cards and candy that didn't have rat poison in it. That was a long six months.
I have a ton of itty bitty doodads at the bottom of my Easter bins. Chenille chicks, wooden bunnies, teen eggs all my tiny favorite things. Last year I got the idea to put them all on this Lazy Susan. I give it a turn every few days and it's all new again.
Another turn. I got those pink and white pompom bunnies at Joann's last week. SO CUTE. My sweet little girl kitty would have loved playing with those. She loved her pompoms.
I hope you have a Happy Easter with jelly beans and chocolate bunnies a plenty.
