Decorating with Lanterns: Easter Bunnies & Carrots. A fun and easy way to switch things up seasonally. Choose a neutral set of lanterns that blends with all colors and decor styles.
The wait continues. Patiently or not so patiently…it depends on the day. I’m referring to spring of course. Still waiting but I’m determined to keep adding it to my decor whether it’s arrived on my doorstep or not. I’ve been decorating with lanterns for years so I decided to re-invent my set once again with an Easter spin.
I cleared off the dining room table and started layering. First an inexpensive IKEA runner and then a basket tray from Pottery Barn. (All shopping sources are listed below.) I filled the lanterns with dried grass and then added bunnies. The bunnies (and carrots) are from Pier 1. They have the most adorable faces and the eyes actually look real. I added an ironstone pitcher filled with pussy willows as the finishing touch. Neutral yet festive.
Investing in a neutral set of lanterns is a great way to get a lot of bang for your buck. They can be styled to go with the seasons, and they can be split up and moved around. Candles look great in lanterns but don’t be afraid to think outside the box. At Christmas I fill the lanterns with greenery or red balls. In the fall, they hold bittersweet. The sky is the limit when it comes to accessorizing a neutral set of lanterns.
