Chocolate Easter bunny display

So last Sunday I decided to get out of the house and do some shopping.  My first stop was at Home Goods where I saw this beautiful bunny.  I was wanting a dark brown bunny and there he was.  I rushed over to where he was displayed and looked at the price tag.  I couldn't believe my eyes he was only $24.99.  This bunny is two feet tall so I was expecting it to be expensive.  Well of course I snatched him up immediately.  He is perfect for my kitchen island.  I always like to have something tall to put on it.  So here is a little display that I did for Spring.


When I bought the bunny he had a burlap bow around his neck.  I thought that he resembled a chocolate Easter bunny so I removed the bow and replaced it with this blue one that I made.  Now he really looks like a chocolate bunny.


I know that my chalkboard says It's Spring when it really isn't yet but this week is feeling like it.  We are going to have the temps in the 50's and 60's this week.  I am hoping some of the snow in my backyard will melt some this week.


I bought the chocolate eggs at Gordman's last month and they look perfect with my new bunny.


I added some lace on my lampshade that has a touch of blue in it.  It's hard to see it in the pictures but I think it made the lamp coordinate better.  Not too bad for throwing this together at 7:30 this morning.

  4. Terrific display using your new "chocolate" bunny! I like how you draped the greenery on the sign and on the tray, it adds that extra touch and softens the look.

    1. I thought that he would look better with a nice ribbon bow instead of burlap. I am planning on getting my front porch done this Sunday and maybe redo my fireplace mantel. If I manage to get them done I will be sharing those. Thanks for stopping by!
