How I Made an Easter Centerpiece with Vintage Finds

Do you remember when I found eight jello molds in FTT Week 73 Vintage Finds.  I mentioned that I already had a plan for them.

Easter Centerpiece title

That plan was for a simple Easter table centerpiece made with vintage finds. 

Matelasse Table Runner

I started with a beautiful white table runner made from matelasse and white lace.

Jello Molds

The jello molds were ready to do their duty.

Jello Cup w Easter Eggs

So I filled them with Spanish moss and placed five small Easter eggs in each mold.

3 Jello Molds

With the vintage baguette board centered on the table runner I placed the eight filled jello molds on the board.

Middle Nest

 Once I had all the jello molds in place it needed a center focal point and one more jello mold did not do the trick.

Rabbit Mold

I remembered my rabbit mold from TTT Week 28 Vintage Finds and decided he would be perfect.

Bunny in the Middle

So on the nest of Spanish moss he sits.

Easter Centerpiece

He was just the right thing for a focal point.

Here we are looking at the centerpiece toward the foyer and front door.  Be sure to come back to see my complete Easter Tablescape.

    Love that rabbit mold Sharon and yes, he is just perfect! I played with a little jello mold yesterday myself. Love how they are all lined up on the baguette board! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    • That rabbit mold gave me some trouble staying together. I ended up taping him along the bottom so he would stand up. Thanks.

    oh Sharon you are just too awesome girl, love it, how fantastic some of your treasures come in handy. Talk about a fantastic vignette/centerpiece your bunny mold is incredible.
    Sure glad for you to have remembered having it. How much fun for you to put him on your table, looks perfect for Spring/Easter.
    Am trying to decide if I want to go digging for my Easter decorations, have no idea where I stashed them last year. Pretty sure not in big shed but who knows. Did buy little bit at Goodwill, $tree and Target am using now but rest of it, oh dear. Have several ceramic bunnies of different sizes have used for vignettes before. Got most of them at thrift stores couple years ago and last year. Have to decide how badly I want to use them. Will sleep on it tonight, decide.
    We’re hoping to be able to go to San Diego for oldest son’s wedding, is his second marriage.
    He’s been waiting til he found the right woman before he’d marry again, he was 53 just before Christmas. Was 32 before he married first time, has 2 boys, 18 and 20 from that marriage. His new gal has 2 girls – 7 and 11, and she’s 33, yeah, bit younger. Will get married towards end of June. They’re buying a house that closes tomorrow, they’ll get married in back yard of new house. Am so happy for him.
    Better end this for now, happy rest of week and weekend.

    • Exciting news about your son’s wedding. I sure hope you get to go. San Diego is beautiful. We spent a week there several years ago and I would love to go back. My best friend Pam lived there for a while when she was a kid. Hope you are having a great weekend. sb

  13. Hi Sharon, your centerpiece is totally adorable!! I used to decorate cakes and had that exact cake pan but have since gotten rid of it! It never baked a good cake anyway so using it as you did for the centerpiece is perfect! You are so creative to think outside the box!
    Very cute! Thanks so much for hosting and have a great weekend!

  14. Sharon, this is adorable! The table runner is beautiful to begin with – is it matelasse? The Easter eggs in the jello molds is creative and cute too.

    Thank you for joining us at Thoughts of Home on Thursday this week. 🙂

  15. I love how you used the jello molds. So cute and the bunny is just perfect with them.
    Thanks for the inspiration and for hosting the fun Vintage Charm Party every week.
