Kitschy Easter-Themed Front Door Containers

I went all out at the front door for Easter this year. Not my favorite holiday but my kid is almost 3 and she is OBSESSED with the whole thing. I totally enjoyed putting this together. But let me start with the BEFORE photo:

Winter pots, in April. Not such a pretty thing. I'm happy with how the big pot with greens in it held up throughout the polar vortex and all-but holy guacamole, I was DONE looking at this.

Now, here's SPRING!

I think he chair needs a pillow, no?
Here: butterfly chair from the thrift store, 3 vintage coolers and an old thermos, all thrifted, some Cynthia Rowley garden tools I found on clearance in spot with moss, leeks, pansies and old glass insulators in all the pots, most topped with sheet moss. Zombie gnome and ceramic slug with wings.
Cake cover and blue fruit dish (painted by me) thrifted. 


Let's start with the giant glittery Easter bunny- given to me by my sis's boyfriend. He had some reconstructive surgery (to be blogged about next week) and has been painted purple and thoroughly glittered. He is something TO SEE!
An old Pier 1 glass head with Easter bonnet, Hazel's first Vans, a thrifted Lamb and lil' chicks. Moldy the Gnome,
pots filled with red romaine lettuce and pansies, as well as a few glass insulators.
Thrifted "needle art" hanging on the wall is really a horizontal thing, but it'fills the void vertically!
Also--I cut a zillion branches from an overgrown Forsythia. Will they bloom? Who cares!




At the driveway. pots jammed with pansies, sheet moss and old insulators

What do you think? Too over the top?
