Two Bunny Themed Centerpieces

It’s that time of the year when we are thinking cute bunnies!

Last week I found some very adorable bunnies at HomeGoods.

They were holding the Golden Egg.

The wheels started turning in my head . . . you could actually hear the squeaking!

I thought that there were so many things that I could do with them and I have.

 Today, I present you with the first of the series of The Bunnies with the Golden Egg.

Two Bunny Themed Centerpieces.

The Golden Egg was always the egg to find in our Easter Egg Hunts 

and I am sure with many of you too!

The egg containing that extra special prize!

takes on its Easter/Spring look surrounded by the bunnies.

Not only can the bunnies hold that special Golden Egg . . .

they can work double duty and hold a tray of cookies!

Their ears so wonderfully balance a tray or dish.

I must say that I have had such fun with these adorable bunnies.

Stay tuned for more adventures of the Bunnies with the Golden Eggs!

Now tell me, what did your Golden Easter Egg contain when you were a child?

For us kids, it was a quarter! 

For our Sweetie, it’s a 5 dollar bill . . . you know . . . inflation!

Have a most beautiful day and weekend!

    What a clever idea! I love those bunnies.

  5. I saw those bunnies too at Home Goods and passed them up. I am kicking myself for doing that. They are so adorable. We do the golden egg hunt for Easter too. The grand girls love it but I think the bigger adult kids love it even more.
    Happy Friday. Have a fabulous weekend.

  6. Those bunnies are adorable! I love your ideas for centerpieces.The orchid looks just beautiful in the ironstone tureen. When I was a girl, we dyed Easter eggs the night before and left them out for the Easter Bunny hide. He would hide our eggs and leave a few treats in our baskets. I have carried on the same tradition with my children. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

  7. So cute! What a great idea to use the bunnies to support the tray! You have given me some inspiration as to how I might use a very large white soup tureen that was a wedding gift 43 years ago, about the only inspirational thing I have ever done with it is use it for a punch bowl LOL. I can see it on my mahogany dining room table filled with faux orchids( I can’t keep the real alive).
    This year is our Sweetie Bunny’s first Easter, he definitely is our golden egg, we love him so much although no candy for him yet…
    With a good six inches of snowfall Easter seems sooo far away. Love your posts.

  8. Simply creative and fun, both of those! What a great find! Happy weekend, Shirley!

    Cute bunnies…nice ears…so versatile! I don’t remember Easter egg hunts during my growing up years. My kids went to a few….but I don’t think there was a golden egg either. Maybe that was a local thing? Curious to see you use those bunnies in other ways, too. 😉

    Great buy!!! I haven’t set foot in a Home Goods store for fear of losing my mind and buying everything I see!!! I would have snatched up all of these! Great idea to use them as a riser!!! I’m going to test that move out with some existing pieces! My granddaughter was never particularly interested in Easter egg hunts…or a lot of the things I enjoyed as a child. (Her brain is squarely focused on robotics. She reminds me of “Young Sheldon” in a lot of ways!?) I’m hoping to find a golden egg of my own around here!? Have a great weekend, my sassy Southern sister!

    When I was a child the Easter Bunny would hide our eyes outside. Once he put a chocolate bunny still in it’s box in the branches of a dogwood tree. Be the time we whenout to hunt eggs the bunny – which was hollow inside – had melted into a small puddle in the box. I was so disappointed. Easter Bunny learned a lesson that year ?

  12. What a cute idea, the bunnies holding up the plate!! I love everything you do Shirley!!

  13. Those bunnies are so sweet! We never had a golden egg or an Easter Egg hunt growing up. We each just had our Easter Baskets, filled with candy and real hard boiled dyed eggs.

  14. I can see why those bunnies hopped home with you and love them serving as a pedestal for a tray of treats! I was at my HomeGoods today but didn’t spy anything like them. They have so much turnover you have to grab it when you see it 🙂

  15. Shirley, what adorable bunnies! The plate of cookies held by the bunnies is too cute…great idea! We always had an Easter egg hunt, but never a golden egg.

  18. Shirley, love the bunnies holding up the plate. As a child, I enjoyed Easter egg hunts and Easter baskets, but never had a golden egg. Hope this finds you enjoying spring weather.

  19. I’m off to Homegoods tomorrow, hoping to find those adorable bunnies! I can’t wait to see where they hop to next!

  20. Your bunnies are so pretty and springy too. I have to tell you, I don’t remember us having a golden egg when I was little. I think we got jipped! Just kidding… 🙂
