15 of Our Favorite Bunny Decorations for Easter
When Easter morning arrives, it just doesn't feel like the holiday if you haven't had a visit from the Easter Bunny. In legend, the mythological character carries colored eggs in his basket, candy, and, sometimes, toys to the homes of children. Easter bunnies need not be on full display; as this holiday proves, there's fun to be had in the hunt: a long-eared rabbit motif inspires all kinds of décor from tableware to furnishings. Outdoor Easter decorations are all the more relevant this year due to social distancing—so dress up your porch, stoop, or street-facing yard. Welcome the spring season with a rabbit-inspired wreath on the front door, a pair of rabbit statues flanking either side. At the entrance, a bunny-decorated door mat serves a dual purpose: to stop footsteps tracking in mud as well as set the tone for the holiday happenings indoors.
Inside the home, table linens and serveware set the scene for a lovely brunch—even if it's exclusive to your family members. They serve dual purposes here, too—as candle holders, snack bowls, plates and platters, as well as napkins and runners to protect the tabletop. So hippity hop through our selection of the best bunnies making rounds in the market and decorate your home in time for the spring season.
