To celebrate Easter, today we’re sharing some of the clever and pretty ways that Pottery Barn fans are decorating for Easter with our bunny dessert stands. From bookends to flower pedestals, we think you’ll be inspired by their creativity! Lara from Air Kissed shared this pretty vignette that gave the classic Easter basket and bunny a natural, subdued color palette. We love the effect. easterdecor2013-2prepre   Shirley at Housepitality Designs cleverly used two of the bunny stands as bookends on her mantel.

We’ll eat those “veggies”! peas-carrots   We love the bright, tropical colors in this Easter tablescape found on Around the House. Phyllis explains, “These cute little bunny stands are from Pottery Barn . . . I never got a chance to use these little fellas last year, so this is my chance.” We hadn’t thought about using these stands as a flower cloche — what a brilliant idea! 2-DSC_0018   Lara from KDHamptons used one of the bunny stands as a prop for camellia flowers. Gorgeous! image-1-copy   Torie Jayne used a bunny dessert stand as a holder for her brightly hued washi tape.

Passover Stories and Our Seder Plate

Entertaining, Parties and tagged , , | | | 10 Replies

For millions of Jewish households,  Passover is the time to gather together to commemorate the story of the Exodus, in which the ancient Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt.  Passover begins on the 14th day of the month of Nisan in the Jewish calendar, and Passover seder marks the perfect time to celebrate and observe the Passover story with family and friends over a good meal.



We reached out to a few friends and Pottery Barn fans to hear about their favorite elements of Passover seder. Here’s what they told us:

  • “Every Passover I join my family and good friends at my parent’s house as we read the story of Passover and share a beautiful meal together. I always volunteer to set the dining table with beautiful linens and special place settings. This year, I am going to surprise my mother by bringing home a new matzah plate. It will be a perfect addition to our family’s Passover table for years to come.” — Leslie
  • “The Afikomen is so much fun. It was great as a kid zooming through the house trying to find it and now it’s great watching my kids and my sisters’ kids hunting around.” — Robin
  • “Passover is always my favorite time of year to gather around with my family. This holiday is almost as much about the people sitting around the table as it is about the food you are sharing as everyone brings their own spin to the more traditional classics. It doesn’t matter how old everyone gets, finding the Afikomen is still a childhood tradition that we keep alive within our family. Passover brings out the inner Child in everyone!” — Jacqueline
  • “The second night of Passover we had an interfaith seder with friends and family. It was an opportunity for us to share believes with those who were not otherwise familiar with the tradition. We encouraged everyone to taste the elements on the seder plate if they were unfamiliar with them. There was a younger member of the dinner who decided to try the horseradish. We may have mentioned the texture was carrot-like. Well the poor child bit in to it like a carrot. Her face was red and tears welled up but she was otherwise ok. We all were horrified but after she recovered we all laughed about it and still tease her to this day.” — Meg
  • “Last year I hosted my first Seder and was so excited to put together the ingredients for the Seder plate. As we approached the part in the Seder when we taste the horseradish root, we all got quite the surprise . . . I had bought ginger root instead of a horseradish root!” — Jenna


To celebrate Passover with our fans, today we’re giving away 10 of our Seder plates. The Pottery Barn Seder Plate was designed to mimic the look of a leafy branch — a family tree branch, if you like, for a special family gathering. For a chance to win one of our Seder Plates, simply fill out the form below by 11:59 pm PT tonight and we’ll pick 10 winners at random.  (You can read the official rules here.)
