The "Nest" Table Decor

I finally decided to change my dining room table centerpiece.  I had a really fun Pier 1 lantern on my table for most of the winter and it was OK but I decided something more "Springy" was in order.  To me nests mean spring- maybe it is because a Robin builds one on our front porch each spring- so I thought that nests would be my theme this year for the table.  So here is what I came up with.

The bunny I added for Easter.  I got him several years ago from work for FREE because he was damaged in shipping.( He has a small hole in his back)  He is so vintage looking and cute.
A nest with decoupaged eggs sits in front of him.  I just used mod podge to glue some pretty napkins to cheap plastic eggs.
Another fun nest that sits next to the long basket!!
A pot of silk tulips with a little nest inside sit at the end of the long basket opposite the rabbit!!

A small chalkware bunny , a silver dish with eggs, and yes another nest sit on top of my sideboard in the dining room!!

Here is another view of my sideboard!!

Spring has arrived in my dining room now we just need to work on the weather here in Michigan!!
