What’s Up Doc? {Easter 2013}

 

What’s up doc? LOL! Gotcha? This is not a blog about my health. I am feeling fine. Instead, this blog is about carrots as in Easter decor.

Yesterday evening (after I recovered from Saturday’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities), the shamrocks came down and the carrots went up.

Show Me the Door’s Melissa Henry made these two wooden carrot creations a couple years ago. Each look wonderful and are very seasonal during this Easter season.

This year, I added two carrot topiaries in my cast iron urns. They work really well with the entire front porch vignette. These were purchased right after Christmas from Gordon’s of Metairie. I simply added some spring green burlap ribbons to the top of each topiary.

I even had time to transform the oyster shell wreath. Check out the wreath tomorrow. Anticipation…

Have you begun your Easter or Spring decor? I have and plan on showing you much more in the days to come. My purple petunias are thriving so well.

  4. I think you need to dye your hair orange for the season, too, so that you match your porch decorations...just sayin'...think it would be a nice touch. I LOVE those big carrots, Ron. I also like big carats, too! xo Diana

  6. Ron,
    Your carrots are fabulous! I have a love for carrots also, a few years ago I was obsessed with them and have a pretty good collection that I put out in the spring but none as large as yours!
    Can't wait to see more!

  8. I looooove carrots. How exactly did you make the carrot topiary's. Is this something you bought already looking that way or did you DIY them?

  10. Love these carrots! I am going to try to attempt these for the front door rather than a wreath that everyone else does around here!
