Pastel Easter Tree

I made this Easter tree several years ago and every time I get it out...guess what...I have to add a couple of new things to it!   It is so full now, that you can't even see the tree.   Under all the layers of  Easter  is a large grapevine cone.  
I used some lavender crochet pieces for the tree skirt.   The vintage sugar eggs came from the auction last year and I think they look like little presents under the Easter tree....
The little vignettes inside the eggs are so sweet....
The detail is just amazing!
I have all kinds of flowers on the Easter tree....roses (of course) ,  snow balls,  you have to look close to see the foxglove at the top.   I think I should add some Easter lilies this year.

A little Victorian bunny with a basket of eggs and a small bottle brush tree....

Metal cone filled with pink Easter grass and green eggs....look close for the peas hidden behind the lavender ribbon....

Lots of ribbon and another sweet bunny....

I couldn't get a good picture of this bunny on stilts....you can see the rest of her body in the photo below...
This little basket belonged to my mother,  she had it filled with potpourri,  but I have it filled with Easter eggs.
 See the green stilts on the left .....a blue pansy peeking up at the bottom....and next to it, a vintage bouquet of flowers.

I have the smaller sugar eggs displayed on the mirrored shelf  by the tree.

Til next time!
