These rabbits and eggs are special and have been collected over many years. It takes me down memory lane thinking of my kids as they have grown up and now grandkids goodies are being added. The touch of silver comes from my collection of Author Court, the original Miss Cayce's my grandmother, gave all the "girls" fun serving pieces, frames and accessories all in a bunny pattern, perfect to add to my Easter display! Now time to assemble our display. I started with Emma and Ethan helping to fill my candle jars with plastic eggs and Easter grass, you could also use clear vases or jars. These will become my main focal point and add height.

- Emma's jar!
The grandkids had a great time picking just the right color and size to fill their jars. We even found some small glitter eggs in bright colors at the Dollar Tree, and they filled in the nooks and crannies left by the bigger eggs. They are so proud of their creations! I enjoy including them in the decorating process and can even teach them their colors!

The striped ribbon is not wired but I loved how it pulled all the colors together. I took a length of ribbon and tied around the jar.
I made my bow and used a twist tie (recycled) to hold it together. Lay bow on ribbon and tie a square to secure. Don't know how to tie a bow? Learn how on the
