Easter Decor Au Naturale

Although I still love most of my sweet little ceramic bunnies and chicks, I found myself putting out fewer of them for Easter this year.  I have been drawn to a more natural look for Easter and Spring decor.

This old tiered server is tarnished and rusted...beyond being suitable for holding food.  So, I had fun transforming it into a mossy spring display.  The eggs could be swapped out for air ferns, succulents, mini pumpkins, pine cones, etc. as the seasons change.

I took apart a few store bought nests, replaced the brightly colored plastic eggs for real ones (insides removed of course) and swapped the raffia stuff for soft green moss.  I added a few dried hydrangea flowers to this one, but most I kept very simple.
 I had a couple of these pedestal dishes tucked away and I think I found their final purpose.  I am loving the combination of the rustic nest with the fancy vintage gold metal base.
I think this tiny basket once held salt and pepper shakers. 
 I went looking for some fun vintage images to make tags for my Easter crafts and of course found exactly what I was looking for and more from the Graphics Fairy!
And I thought you might like to see where I've been getting all of my pretty eggs...  This is my mom's charming little chicken house!  I have been collecting the eggs from her brood of pampered hens this week while my parents have been away.  It has been fun but I am so looking forward to mom and dad's homecoming today!
Thank you so much for your sweet visit!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
