Peter Rabbit Spring Mantle

Have you seen the trailer for the new Peter Rabbit movie?  I am super excited to take my kids to the movie so they can watch mischievous Peter and all his farm and field friends get into a bunch of shenanigans!

My FAVORITE thing to do when I'm not busy with the hundreds of things going on in my life is to curl up in a quiet corner and read.  I am such a book worm!  I remember being a small child, in nursery school (does anyone else remember nursery school??? Was that a thing everywhere or just where I grew up.....I digress) and there was this lush bright yellow carpeted corner of the classroom that had shelves filled with books upon books.  I was always drawn to books with the brightest illustrations!  I didn't really 'read' at such a young age....but I certainly remember the images.  One of my favorite books to thumb through was The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter. 

The images of Peter running through Mr. McGregor's farm, getting caught in a few traps, and finally returning home always stood out to me.  It's a book that I would always grab and look through during quiet times.  Suffice to say, I'm beyond excited to catch this tale on the big screen.  I'm also  inspired to start decorating my home for spring with all the fabulous items that Cost Plus World Market has available that are inspired by the new movie!

Recently, I was perusing the Cost Plus World Market site to see what items I could nab to decorate our home to create a Peter Rabbit spring mantle.

The first item that I immediately want to put on my list is this adorable Felted Wool Peter Rabbit Figure quite naturally, it's the star of the show and would be the perfect center piece for my mantle.  To give it some height, I would place the figure on top of a stack of Mini Peter Rabbit Story Books . 

The next item I found was this Peter Rabbit Snow Globe  it's a treasure!  You can see Peter doing what he does best -  sneaking vegetables from Mr. McGregor's garden!  This is such a fun collectible  - I consider this a MUST HAVE item....additionally, I would definitely add these Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-Tail  Paper Pulp Peter Rabbit Sisters Figures and each figure has the character's name added to the base.  The Blue And Green Peter Rabbit Ceramic Egg Cookie Jars are DARLING!  I love the silhouette shape and that they can be used as a jar or vase!  They would look perfect positioned on opposite ends of my mantle!

This tale takes place mostly on a quite naturally my mantle will need to scream Farmhouse style!  When I saw this decorative Metal Wheelbarrow  I knew that it would be a perfect fit.  It would look so festive filled with Bright Green ExelsiorFaux Heather Bundles and these Peter Rabbit Candied Sunflower Seeds - I love that they are wrapped in a carrot shaped package - so fun!

Every mantle deserves certain key pieces that perhaps, wouldn't necessarily be used as decoration, but could certainly serve a dual purpose, whether that be a decorative plate or a tray, and these Peter Rabbit Melamine Egg Shaped Plates  or these Peter Rabbit Veggie Plates are and 'eggs'-cellent choice!  I'd either place some of these treat-filled Peter Rabbit Easter Crackers  on them or prop one up on a plate stand and present it as a display piece.   I also like the idea of stacking these Veggie Bowls on top of each other and filling them with decorative pastel eggs!  The good thing is that the bowls and plates are also great for kids parties and because they're Melamine, they're practically unbreakable! 

I'd be amiss if I didn't include either this vibrant and colorful Wood Happy Easter Garland  to the my spring mantle.  It would look perfect swagged across the front.  I would even add this Pastel Egg Wreath Decor  the twisted vine and leafy accents reminds me of the berry vines that Peter gets tangled in and it will work seamlessly into my Easter decor.

I'm so excited that spring is upon us and I can get my home ready for the Easter holiday.  I'm equally anxious to see this movie!  I'm definitely heading to my local Cost Plus World Market store  at Pentagon Row in Arlington, Va to zshush up my home, If you're as excited as I am head to your local store HERE.
