EGGceptional Mantle

The mantle is dressed for the Easter season. I enjoy using the two vintage trophy cups on each side of the mantle, so I created a small arrangement using salal leaves (my favorite aka lemon leaf) and some of the speckled, gilded eggs that I like to use in bowls and containers around the house.







A vintage-looking bunny, trophy cups filled with eggs, and my fave Dyptique Baies candle finish the look.





This year I also added an Easter banner as well as the EGGceptional ribbon I shared yesterday.








The mantle is ready for a visit from Peter Cottontail or the Easter Bunny.
"Run along Jack, here comes the Easter bunny." Who can name the movie of this quote?




Join me Thursday for an Easter Tabletop Tour.

Decorating for Easter {Egg-ceptional Ribbon}

I have never been a huge fan of Easter decorating due to the fact that I am not in love with pastels as they never have worked well in any of my homes. I search for Easter decor that I feel is classier than the rest. I was excited to score this egg ribbon last week at Hazelnut on Magazine Street. I love the turquoise color of the eggs. The color works so much better in my home. I think the ribbon looks simple yet classy. I have already used the ribbon in a couple locations around my home.




The ribbon is by d. stevens.

Acorn Bowl {Vagabond House}

The acorn, the French symbol of prosperity, is a favorite symbol of mine; hence, Uptown Acorn is the name of this blog. 





I was given this acorn covered bowl by Vagabond House at Christmas, and I adore it. It was purchased from Dunn & Sonnier on Magazine Street.
From Vagabond House: We love it when our customer's go a little nutty for this elegant and beautiful bowl, cast in pure Vagabond House Pewter in the shape of a noble acorn. A highly polished pewter base forms the bowl and is topped by a detailed cast, hand-finished lid.




I added this pewter acorn to a stack of books on the stair parlor table. I love its details especially the oak leaves.
