I'll expand on this process shortly as part of my Project 2016 Series, but for today I'd thought I'd focus on introducing some Easter accents to my buffet/sideboard, as we've already entered the season of Lent.
Here in Australia it might be nearing the end of Summer, but the heat will carry on through to most of March, so I want my Easter accents to seamlessly blend through to the cooler months of Autumn/Fall. As I love natural elements, I've decided to stick with a neutral colour palette of white, cream and green, with touches of wicker and twine.
I wrapped some plastic eggs with kitchen twine and strips of pages torn from an old book, and layered them up in a wicker bowl as a sort of nest.
My green moss bunny peeks out from behind and helps to break up the colour.
The other side boasts a scrabble-tiled frame that was a Christmas gift from my sister-in-law, some greenery and a twine-wrapped votive holder that was a birthday gift from a dear friend.
Lastly, I hung a simple wicker wreath from the mirror above the buffet, and adorned it with a crucifix made from sticks bound with jute string.
A simple and rustic reminder of the reason for the season!
How are you decorating for Easter?
