It has been a long, cold winter. I think most of us are more than ready for spring...and that means Easter is just around the corner. I don't know about you, but I am ready for flowers, spring colors and sunshine! I hope that the table setting that I'm sharing with you today reminds you of all of those things.
I started with a tablecloth I've had for years but never used. Look at all of those spring colored eggs. The dinner plates are a recent TJ Maxx purchase. I bought the only 6 they had...I will be looking for more. They are Bianca Leaf by American Atelier. The dessert plates are new from Wal-Mart, $1 each...they are plastic and come in several spring colors. I used white napkins, folded into bunnies-see the whiskers?
I used gold flatware because of all the yellow on the table. The wine glasses I've had for several years. At each place setting I used a small pastel vase (Crate and Barrel) with a few marbles in it, and a colored egg. For perfect hard-boiled eggs, check out my post from last summer here. These would be perfect place "cards" but I don't like to tell people where to sit, so I don't use them.
See the bunny?
In the center of the table is my rabbit general store and family. They are Dept. 56. Papa Bunny is working behind the counter.
Mama Bunny has her chickens.
Baby Bunny is just getting home from school and the boy bunnies are playing ball.
On one corner of the table is an antique rabbit candy container.
The other side has a cut glass pitcher full of daffodils.
It seems that the store is even open at night!
I am linking today with Michelle @ maddycakesmuse for her Easter Tablescapes and Spring Parties Contest as well as a little early with Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Please visit these ladies and see their wonderful blogs.
