The somebunny who loves spring and Easter is ME! Spring is so fun and beautiful; lots of pastel colors, the weather is nicer, the flowers start blooming, and the birds are tweeting! I loved Easter as a kid! New little dress, big giant Easter basket, egg hunts, delicious meal with the family, and cascarones! (more about that later) It’ll be fun introducing all these traditions to Isabella as she gets older. You know what else is fun? Decorating! I felt inspired to create a centerpiece, since you might want to give your decor a spring touch! It is easy to create and totally acceptable to leave it up after Easter through the spring season!
I think this setup is pretty versatile. You can use different florals, change out the bunnies for candles, more vases, your standard dining room table items (i.e. salt shakers), and so much more! And using items with neutral colors is a good idea since it matches everything and doesn’t need to be changed out often. Be sure to let me know what you would do to make this display unique for you!
Bringing it All Together
The first thing you want to decide is what your base is going to be. It can be a placemat, a treenware cutting board, or a galvanized tray. Choosing this first will help you decide what other items you can use because you will know how much space you have to fill.
I love the neutral farmhouse feeling! Simple greenery, the neutral resin bunny, and the natural angel vine rabbit cut out. Those kinds of elements are key to creating something that you can leave up for longer than a holiday party. This would be a great year-round display for a garden lover, because bunnies aren’t just for Easter!
Egg-cellent Easter Traditions
As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, we had a few traditions for Easter when I was growing up. Aside from getting an Easter basket full of goodies, my all-time favorite thing to do was cracking cascarones! They take a little technique and time to make but totally worth it for the fun that happens! There is meaning behind the tradition of cracking confetti filled eggs; it is believed to bring good luck to whoever gets the egg cracked on their head!
How to make cascarones:
My mom carefully breaks the egg closer to the rounded part of the egg vs. how you typically crack an egg right in the center. This allows her to pour out the contents so she can make breakfast, and then she washes it out to get rid of any extra egg yolk. Then you can put it back in an empty carton to let it dry out. When my mom would have enough egg cartons filled with the dried out eggs, I would make my contribution by coloring the egg shells and filling with confetti! Then she would glue a bit of tissue paper over the opening.
