We’re Lunching with Bunnies~
not quite ready to see them hop away so quickly after Easter.
Generously on loan and chosen 61 years ago, my Mother-in-Law’s Syracuse Portland dishes are at the table ~
offering up their floral bouquets in greeting of the arrival of Spring, and just in time for the azaleas to bloom!
After scouring away layers of pollen, we are fortified with ZYRTEC® and dining outdoors again!
The table is draped in a floral quilt~ my table covering of choice. . . easy for a quick change on guest beds or the table and best of all~ no ironing required :)
Pansy Bunny pieces from HomeGoods~ a pitcher, creamer, and small bowl are holding flowers. . .
. . .with violas & pansies floating in water~ recovered from hail, with the help of a haircut and dose of Miracle-Gro® :)
Sprigs of Viburnum are tucked under a Bordallo Pinheiro pedestal, along with a few grocery store mums sprinkled in for color~
Bunnies are nibbling on a salad of mixed baby romaine & spinach~sprinkled with strawberries, blueberries, blue cheese crumbles, pecans and violas for garnish~ edible, only if organic.
Along with Chilled Carrot Soup~ a recipe from Southern Living, and garnished with violas, some flowering thyme, parsley, and with a swirl of sour cream.
I substituted fat-free evaporated milk for the half-and-half called for in the recipe, since the bunnies have had more than their share of chocolate eggs and jelly beans this Easter :)
