Hippity-Hoppity Easter’s on it’s way… and thirty blogging friends and I are celebrating Easter joys today! I am so excited to be hosting the Hop Into Easter Blog Hop and to check out all of the amazing Easter inspiration my friends will be sharing. You can visit each of the beautiful blogs via the link up at the end of this post. I am truly happy to welcome you to my blog today and to share how I decorate for Easter with vintage and thrifted finds. Now let’s get hopping!
Let’s start off the hop in the kitchen where I have created some Easter fun with Rae Dunn and thrifted vintage finds. In my spring home tour I shared how I have been all about adding pops of color around our home and enjoying spring blooms and garden goodies, both fresh and faux.
All spring long I have been decorating with vintage cottage and garden style vignettes. Our little breakfast nook area is one of my favorite places to style in our home and I love how it came together for Easter.
In the back corner of the banquette seating I created a vintage farmhouse garden vignette. I made a vintage seed packet and herb garland using twine and mini-black clothes pins to hang from the shelf behind the seating.
The handmade farmhouse “fresh herbs” sign was also a thrifty find at $10.00. I purchased it when my talented sign-making friend Laney (IG @pine.and.birch) was clearing out some old inventory.
This primitive bunny is a recent thrift store score. I almost forgot about him until after I had taken most of my photos for the hop. I quickly found a spot for him on the black shelf and took a photo so I could share him with you. I just love him here!
As of Friday I hadn’t started adding Easter touches to the kitchen and I really hadn’t planned on sharing too much of the kitchen for today’s hop. All that changed on Saturday morning when I found the tall Rae Dunn “Hop!” canister—at a yard sale for only $3.00! I had been looking for a unique vase for my colorful faux tulips and it turned out to be perfect. I gathered up a few other Rae Dunn pieces and my brightest Easter decor and styled up a whitewashed tobacco basket with my treasures.
My husband bought me the “Hip! Hop!” tea pot pot for Easter last year. Just a few weeks ago we were at Home Goods and he came walking up to me at holding a “Hop!” canister but I didn’t want to pay full price for it. I have been trying to limit Rae Dunn to a few select pieces, but for $3.00 and the thrill of finding Rae Dunn at yard sale, I happily added the canister to my collection!
These colorful tulips aren’t fresh, but they are some of the prettiest faux tulips I have seen and I just love them. I purchased them at a local wholesale floral supplier for less than $2 each. I think that’s pretty thrifty considering I can have fresh looking tulips all spring and for future springs to come.
On another Home Goods visit earlier this spring my husband came walking up to me with the “Gather” Easter mug, and I couldn’t resist! (For some reason he can find Rae Dunn hidden around the store when I can’t!) It seems like everything in this vignette was just made to go together.
When I first started styling the basket I thought something seemed off. I realized the tea pot was sitting too low. I shopped my cabinets and spotted the colorful stash of thrifted Fiestaware saucers. They were the perfect solution for adding the needed height. I have to say this this colorful Easter (tobacco) basket vignette is making me so happy!
I found these sweet cookies at the dollar store. They aren’t gluten free but they are too adorable to eat anyway! The little ceramic chickies nesting in the egg holder alongside colorful mini-eggs and succulents are so fun too.
Even though these little chicks were purchased new at Hobby Lobby last year, they still have a vintage look. I used the baby chicks to add some sweet Easter whimsy to my Vintage Dishes and Daffodils Easter Table for Two that I shared on Friday for the Easter Tablescapes Blog Hop. The vintage daffodils post card was purchased for .50 at an antique store back in March.
I don’t really buy too many retail holiday items anymore. I love the challenge of trying to use what I have in new ways. These vintage dishes were thrifted back in January and I already had everything else I used in the tablescape (including free daffodils from our yard) so the whole tablescape didn’t cost me a single yard sale penny!
Tulips are my favorite flower but this year I have also been crazy about daffodils too. I have been adding them all over our home since they started blooming in early March.
I always decorate with sacred Easter touches too. I love this little vintage style egg with a cross and daffodils, a reminder of the true meaning of Easter, the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the good news of the gospel! Like tulips, daffodils are synonymous with Easter to me. When they start to bloom in early March they seem to remind the world that God makes all things new!
There are fresh daffodils on our front porch in a beautiful French box and also a few tucked in my thrifted basket door decor.
Daffodils can be found on the landing at the top of the stairs mixed in with beautiful faux tulips and other thrifted treasures.
There is a gorgeous white one on the piano in the music room too! I confess that I did actually purchase this new bunny at Marshalls for $7.99 but can you blame me? With his music note and French script ears and torso, how could I possibly pass him up? He looks perfect sitting on top of the piano. The beautiful white daffodil was picked form our yard. Interestingly enough, we have lived here for five years and we have never had white ones. Last week I noticed that about five single white daffodils had shot up between the yellow ones in our yard. I am not complaining, I love them all!
A few weeks ago I was enjoying a simple green and white garden theme for early spring, but as the daffodils bloomed and we moved closer to Easter I wanted to add daffodils to the dining room too.
I am also still loving the faux white tulips I have been using all spring. You can see more of this garden vignette in my Spring Is In The Air Dough Bowl Display post.
The pretty white tulips are tucked in here, there, and everywhere around the house.
You might recall seeing them in my Rustic Farmhouse St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape centerpiece. I have made some simple changes to the tablescape for Easter by adding faux lilies from Dollar Tree in with the tulips and “springing up” the dough bowl with more greenery and eggs.
For Easter I removed all of the antlers from the dough bowl but I kept the mossy eggs, moss rocks, and herbs. I also changed the place mats and added faux herb bundles to each table place setting. This is just a little sneak peak of my Easter tablescape. I will be sharing a full Easter tablescape post on Wednesday for Ten on the Tenth. I hope you will come back and see the rest of the design!
I decided to add the lilies in with the tulips after being inspired by the beautiful antique sacred Easter postcard that I found for .50 while out on the hunt for vintage treasures. This card truly is a treasure to me!
I have always used vintage Easter postcards in my spring and Easter decorating. If you love vintage style you might also enjoy my post, Easy Easter Vignettes With Vintage Postcards. Also you’ll want to be sure to sign up by email to receive a weekly newsletter with all of my latest vintage posts, DIY’s, crafts, and more.
My sweet vintage nativity lambs always come out at Easter too.
The Easter lilies tie in with the vintage inspired French botanical lilies canvas hanging on the butler door between the dining room and the kitchen. I already had the canvas. It just amazes me how things seem to come together!
“Jesus, Shepherd, King of Kings, Easter joys and gladness brings!”
Dear friends, I hope you have been inspired by my vintage and thrifted Easter decor today. It is my true hope that you have a blessed and beautiful Easter and spring!
Now it is time to continue on with some amazing Easter inspiration. Next up on the hop is sweet Debra of Common Ground. Hop straight over to her blog, you won’t be disappointed! You can also visit all of the beautiful blogs by clicking on the links below.
