It has been a long winter here in the usually warm and sunny Los Angeles (and a long time since I've posted-sorry!) I am so glad spring is here and summer is on it's way. I decorated for easter with my chocolate bunny terrariums before a trip to Portland, and returned two weeks later to find the scene of JFK's assassination, due to a poor location choice with too much sun exposure. If I only had involved a few Peeps (pink for Jackie?) I could have submitted it to Peeps Show IV. Honestly, I wasn't to happy with the grassy knoll... the green M&M's alluded me this year, so I went with easter grass, the traditional plastic-y kind from my childhood easter baskets. It didn't pack down well and anchor the bunnies, and it just looked awful. So when presented with the opportunity to give it a second shot, I tried something new.
In my office (above) I filled the bottoms of the jars with pastel easter M&M's, then layered on paper easter grass, and then the chocolate bunnies surrounded by Whoppers eggs, and some faux robin eggs from Pottery Barn. Putting the M&M's on the bottom was a smart move on my part because it made it impossible to get to them without ruining the whole display.
In the living room I did jars on our coffee table sans M&M's but used some more cartoony characterized bunnies, which my husband described as "scary". I added some Lindt chocolate carrots, and a 3rd jar of just the Whoppers for guests to eat, though someone has been sneaking carrots.
