Easter Decor from the past - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday and Happy April!  I can't believe it's already April but I'm happy winter is over! I'm sure many of you are even happier than me about that! It's been a brutal winter for a lot of you!
I decorated for Easter last weekend but I haven't had a chance to take photos yet!  It's been dark and rainy here and my new apartment is dark even on sunny days so the photos probably wouldn't have turned out very well so this week I decided to share Easters of the past at my old apartment! It's supposed to be sunny and warm this weekend so next week I will share this year's decorations...actually I'm using the same decorations but they will be in my new apartment! 
 I also bought a new huge mirror on craigslist that I got a steal on so I may share that next week...I guess you'll just have to come back next week to see what I will share! 
I got these faux chocolate bunnies years ago at Marshalls.  I kept the price tag stickers on the bottom of them and I think every year I'm shocked at how inexpensive they were. The big ones were only $12.99 each and the small ones were only $5.99 each!  My daughter and I once saw one a little bigger than mine that was over $100!
Everyone that comes over thinks these are real chocolate! They would have been eaten long ago...I can't keep chocolate around here and not eat it! In fact I made the mistake of buying Dove chocolate eggs because I love the blue wrappers...they didn't last very long! I won't even discuss my passion for Cadbury Crème Eggs!  Easter candy is my weakness!

I get so much enjoyment pulling these out every year and decorating with them!
I did this little chick in the teacups back in 2008! I didn't recreate that this year but after seeing this photo again I think I will recreate it...I just need to find some more room in this little apartment!

Hi Cindy, I love the tea cups under the cloche. Pinned that one. Always like to see how you stay with blue and decorate for the holidays. I'm doing that more this Easter and need ideas. Cheers! Rita

Hi Cindy. I wasn't able to join the party this week, but just wanted to tell you I saw your beautiful home over at "Color My Decor". You have done such amazing things with you new apartment and it is all so beautiful. I love your Easter table display and hope you don't mind that I'm going to copy the little chick in teacups under glass. So cute..Happy Weekend..Judy
