Yes, It's *Still* Up!

Happy Sunday ... Happy Spring !! 

Yes, our Christmas tree turned Valentine tree, turned Easter tree is still alive and kicking in our kitchen.  I wonder how long I can keep it going ...



For a Spring welcome, I wrapped it in pink and white mesh, along with a striped pastel ribbon.


I then added lots of fun and budget-friendly ornaments, like this cute bunny, with a head full of feathers (from Pier One)!


And, this sweet bunny in a basket, from Michael's.  I also bought an inexpensive bunch of flowers from AC Moore, cut off each floral stem and scattered them about the tree, as well:



A carrot with fun feathers (also from Pier One) ...


I flanked the tree with a couple of ceramic bunnies that I had on hand ... this one reminding you to "see no evil" ...


annnnnd, the other reminding you to "speak no evil," either.


I filled our handy canisters with yummy Easter treats:


And, over on the other counter, added another splash of Easter:




Love this little, pink bunny from Michael's, who is nestled on shredded book pages (although, admittedly, I feel as though I'm suffocating him under the glass cloche) ...


Annnnnd, of course, I had to add a few pastel malted milk balls to a wine glass on one of our shelves ... I'm hoping that since they're high up, I won't be tempted to eat them!


Just a few little splashes of Easter ...


Thanks for stopping by, sweet friends!

Come party with me at these fabulous gatherings!

Love your "year round" tree!!! Really adorable Easter decorations!

It looks just as fresh and pretty today as it did for Christmas. There are some upcoming holidays that could use a patriotic theme for three months - Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4th - then in August...well it's never too early to start decorating for Christmas!

I love the tree! The decorations are so cute and the flowers are perfect. Lots of Easter treats around...I'm sure Jax loves that! It's so fun to decorate with little ones around. (Don't tell him I said that...I know he's older now.) Just still 'little' compared to my grands. :-)
