OAKLAND, Calif.; March 19, 2011 — Cost Plus World Market (www.worldmarket.com) wants to know how you and your friends can “Be a Better Bunny” this Easter season through their personalized Pinterest Easter board. From March 19 through April 6, 2012, “pinners” who follow World Market on Pinterest can create and show off their board highlighting one of three themes: Easter Entertaining& camp=pr:pinterestbunny:easterfooddrink, Easter Gift Giving, or Easter Décor. The boards must feature at least 10 World Market products from worldmarket.com or pinterest.com/worldmarket to be eligible to enter the drawing to win a $50 World Market gift card.

To enter the contest, pinners must create a “Be a Better Bunny” Pin It Contest board using a minimum of 10 World Market items (non-World Market items are accepted) and then email their board entry with their contact info to team@cpwm.com, within the contest period. Judging will be based on the best representation of the three themes. One winner will be chosen each day of the promotion and will be notified via email to claim the $50 World Market gift card.

Pinners can choose from World Market’s exclusive home décor and food items, such as mercury glass bunny or glass egg ornaments, traditional German paper eggs, and chocolate from artisan chocolatier Heidel, or delicious Sticky Fingers Scones Mixes in a variety of flavors. Or select items to set a table for Easter brunch like the Palampore Textile Collection, a beautiful design of flowering vines, paired with new Verde Bunny Tea Collection, a deviled egg plate, and cotton napkins embroidered with a playful Easter bunny.
