My sideboard is really just a console table but it’s the perfect setting for a simple farmhouse style spring vignette.

Are you hungry for color this spring?

I can’t remember a time when I wanted color more than I do now.

Maybe it’s because we pretty much live in the woods… all those bare gray sticks sticking up everywhere for half of the year.  That’s a LONG time!!

It started with St. Patrick’s Day when I couldn’t get enough green.  And now… less than a month later… I’m loving pastels (with a bit of bright pink thrown in the mix) like never before.

Pastels are pretty and peaceful.

They’re happy and kind.

They don’t get in your face or call attention to themselves.

Guess that’s why I’m enjoying pastels so much this year.

This pretty spring vignette is a mixture of the past and the present and pastels and green and puts a great big smile on my face every time I look at it.

I know it’s a bit of a stretch to call our curbside castoff console table a sideboard… but it works hard as one when necessary.  Our space may be small, but we make it live large.  It’s a mindset.

The rugged old door continues to be the major focal point on the sideboard.  This year, instead of carrying on with the grapevine wreath which I’ve been doing since I moved the table and door to this spot, I hung the mossy bunny.

Mossy Bunny has become pretty popular in blogland this season with several features, like here and here and here.  And that’s just for starters.  Who knew that my cute bunny was such a rockstar?!

 

Peter Rabbit and Easter Basket on Farmhouse Style Sideboard - AnExtraordinaryDay.net

 

Everything else on the sideboard, except Peter Rabbit, is making a return appearance as well.  I LOVE that!! And good ole Pete is loving his new place of honor. Doesn’t he fit in well?

Did you notice he’s got his little paw in the Easter basket?  I’m not sure what he’s up to.  But, in case you didn’t remember, this cute basket first made its appearance for St. Patrick’s Day and then shortly thereafter as the cutest Easter Basket centerpiece, ever.  Last year it held potted tulips and later a bouquet… both great for spring and Easter.

The gilded eggs hung from pussy willows last year and the pastel eggs took center stage in one of my most favorite Easter centerpieces. It’s so fun to reuse and repurpose things from the past.  I love how my Easter basket has a completely new look each year.

I finished off this farmhouse styled Easter sideboard with two bouquets of pink tulips.  All the tulips in the grocery store cooler were vibrant colors except these two bunches and they were on SALE, too!

Because I had ribbon left over from tying up the napkins for my gold and pastel Easter table, I decided to tie the table and sideboard together by adding the ribbon to the top of the vase.  It’s those little touches that make things pop!

This is the year of pink and it’s so fun that Peter Rabbit’s egg bucket is pink, too.

Even though it’s in an adjacent room, I’m still carrying the pink pastel theme into my living room with the pillow I made from a table runner and my pretty pink ranunculus.  Yay for pink!
