Rustic Easter Guest Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions

We’ve shown a lot of traditional pastel Easter decor on the blog this week, so we’re giving you a taste of some earthy, rustic Easter decor with this feature from Marcie of Celebrating Moments.  Marcie enlisted Whatever Whimsy to create the lovely sweets like the chocolate bird pops, nest cupcakes, bird cookies, and bird cake.  The color palette is subdued and unexpected for this time of year, but a nice surprise.  Very pretty job, Marcie!

  • The Robin Egg Cupcakes are life like in their coconut nest and I am very into burlap in the present so admire the burlap runner. Will take a few of these ideas to use this year. Marcie, you did a great job!

  • Heidi

    I love the colors! What beautiful sweets! Marilyn, you are so creative. Great job, Marilyn and Marcie!

  • Oh my, I just love this color palette! It looks exactly like the first signs of spring. I also love the way the burlap runner is so casually (but carefully) ruffled. Very organic, different, and absolutely perfect.

  • This one is just too good and original! 🙂 Love it!

  • Steph


  • This display was absolutely breath taking! I really appreciated all the details you implemented. The details make all the difference and that is proven here! The “icing on the cake” so to speak, is that the treats were also delicious! 🙂

  • Fabulous!
    And not an inch of pink or pastel something, well done. This is really just interior design at its’ best, the sugar cookies are works of art and the bird pops, would really be a shame to eat them. A great inspiration, thankyou for sharing. Now I will just get thinking how I can redesign my candy shop by tomorrow morning (easter)!

  • Just have to take a minute and thank you all for your VERY kind words. They are TRULY appreciated (as I am my own worst critic LOL)
    I am honored and inspired! xoxo

  • fresh! really enjoyed this version of Easter (not hating on pastels but you made this pop!). 🙂

  • This is phenomenal. I only hope my wedding turns out half as nice as this! Wowowow!
