Easter Candy Station

I’m so thrilled to join Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for another Pink Saturday.  Today I’m sharing a small corner of my home all ready for Easter.

One of my favorite things to decorate is the Hoosier cabinet in my kitchen.  With an enamel worktop, it’s the perfect spot for a candy station.

I found this cute purple ceramic Easter egg bowl at the thrift store.  It’s filled with lollipops decorated as Easter eggs and carrots.

The miniature tea set under a cheese dome has little bunnies playing outside the Easter egg house.

White chocolate pretzels with sprinkles fill a glass apothecary jar.  These are so good!  I had a hard time keeping my husband out of them until I could take pictures!

This little candy bowl with bunnies on each side was also a thrift store find.  Unfortunately, all the chocolate candy that filled it is long gone.

The dessert server is filled with marshmallow cupcakes and caramels and cream candy.

A cloche contains two sweet little love bunnies sitting on Easter grass looking at the eggs they found.

A few weeks ago, my middle daughter was on a school field trip and brought me back this beautiful sugared egg.  The violets plate and small wine glass used as a cloche were also recent thrift store finds.

The sugared egg has a surprise inside…a precious little yellow duck sitting on green grass!  I just love this and it was so sweet of her to think of me when she saw it!

My youngest daughter decided this little hanging bunny simply had to come home with us when she spotted it at the Dollar Tree a few weeks ago.

In this photo, you can see a bit of my East egg tree that sits beside the cabinet.

Since this post is for Pink Saturday, I have to show off a bit of pink.  Here is my Grandfather’s cotton basket rim -  turned - wreath decked out with a big sheer pink bow.

I want to share a couple more photos before I go…I have two Confederate Jasmine plants outside my kitchen window and they are full of blooms right now.  They have the most fragrant scent!  If a breeze is blowing, I can open my kitchen windows and their wonderful aroma fills the room!

Thanks for visiting with me today!  I hope you’ll come again soon and have a wonderful Easter!
