Easter Tree


Today I am sharing my Easter tree - I think it is just too cute!!!   A few years ago I fell in love with Radko ornaments.  I first began buying Christmas ornaments, but then I discovered that Radko made Easter ornaments.  Well I have to tell you I adore Easter and everything about it!  The sweet pastel colors of Easter just make me smile!  The first year I bought a few ornaments and borrowed a metal tree from a friend.  It was nice, but not quite right.  Last year, I found a pink tree at Walmart during Christmas.  Boy was I excited!  I put it in the closet and waited anxiously for the Easter season so I could put up my darling tree.  You will not believe it, but the day after I put up my special tree, a pipe broke in Seth's bathroom and our house flooded!  We ended up staying in a hotel for 12 weeks while our house was repaired.  I came "home" one day (home at this point was the Homewood Suites) and discoverd that Jon had gone by our house and picked up my little tree and brought it to our "suite"!  How sweet is that?  It brought a little bit of home and the wonderful Easter season to our hotel room. 

This year I was delighted to put the Easter tree in it's rightful place.  I think it is just perfect for this joyful time of year! 

I love these little bunnies that I found this year at Hobby Lobby.  As I walked around with them, another customer told me about the grass.  I hurried over and picked some up right then.  It was just the touch I needed.  I also picked up the pink and green ribbon to dress up the bunnies. 
I think the faces on the bunnies are so sweet!

I wasn't sure what to put under the tree.  I finally purchased a half of a yard of pink gingham from Walmart and topped it with a small Longaberger basket filled with pastel Easter eggs. 

This ornament is called "Chocolate Charlie". 


I love these ornaments!!! 




I have my eye on a wreath at Target to hang on the mirror behind the Easter tree.  If it gets marked down soon it will be mine!  I am waiting to see if I can get a bargain on it!  If I do, I will update and add a picture with my newest find :-)

  3. LOVE the display on your table! Everything about it! The bunnies are adorable and I probably wouldn't have noticed the grass if you hadn't mentioned it. Now I want grass like that, too! LOL! Pink tree and the Radko ornaments are so perfect. I used to collect Radko ornaments many years ago. Then I stopped when they became a little more popular and eventually sold most of mine. I don't regret it and always have to tell myself not to start again -- especially when I see beautiful ones like yours!
