Easter Decorations German Style

One of the things I adore about German women is how they love to decorate for holidays.  You will always find the cutest little items in stores during the holiday seasons.  The ladies go into the shops, pull things off shelves and turn it into something pretty for your table.  I have watched my friends Oma, Ruth and Margit do this for years.  Now that I am back in Germany, I am going to show you what I mean.
This morning we went out to REAL. It's supermarket chain reminiscent of Walmart or Tesco.

4 simple little items
1 bag of plastic eggs 1.50 Euro
1 green dish 2 Euro
1 pouch of daisies 1.50 Euro

These items (except for the bunny) can be put away and used year after year.

I purchased the chocolate German hiking bunny in Rodalban at Zum Bold where we ate with Margit. The new owner got all her chocolate forms from a company that closed.  The form for this little hand painted bunny is over 100 years old.  The hand painted bunny was 7 Euros.

Here's a close-up of the bunny.  Isn't he adorble with his little knapsack?

So here it is, a very German table decoration. If you went to a German's house you might find this in an entry hall or sitting on their dinner table.  Now, I expect you people from the USA to get to the dollar store and mail me a picture of what you come up with. Go on, I dare you.
I wonder how long this bunny is going to last......he really smells yummy!
