In the Potting Shed with Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail


 I’m in the Potting Shed with a little tabletop fun with Easter on its way!


 The Original Peter Rabbit Chocolates by Beatrix Potter were at Dollar Tree, a little tardy for The Novel Bakers Beatrix Potter Weekbut fun just the same.


Flopsy, Mopsy and Peter Cotton-tail arrived in time for Easter, to provide a little table top inspiration!


They’re joining green and white bunny plates and cabbage leaf chargers for a bunny egg-stravaganza.


Galvanized chargers and letters. . .


And mossy bunnies and baskets. . .


Hopped to the table to join colored eggs and vintage-inspired chocolates.


Garden gloves are holding napkins. . .


And Ball Jar are holding flowers.


Mini moss baskets are offering sweet sentiments and chocolate in vintage-inspired wrappers.



An egg-strewn garland hangs on a burlap-draped window in the Potting Shed, providing a little seasonal color with their vintage-inspired Easter images.


And an Old Kentucky Home scale is weighing in on Easter love with colored eggs and chocolate.





Sending Happy Easter Wishes

and Greetings Your Way!

    Oh, oh! Wonderful bunny plates, and the chocolates are fabulous! But where is your lovely living Easter basket! I’m still enthralled by it!

    Another wonderful post, only I wish you’d shared where you found galvanized chargers. I have never seen them anywhere before!

      Hi Lynette, The chargers are included in the sources at the bottom of the post. They came from Michaels along with the galvanized letters :)

    I have to tell you Mary, the napkins tucked in the garden gloves is the best!!! How sweet that would also be for a garden tea party! Did you stamp your flatware or purchase it that way?

  12. April 2, 2015 at 10:29 am

    Very cohesive, so well done. What an imagination and budget you must have. I started following you about a month ago and have enjoyed post. So glad I did. What stood out to me was the garden gloves as napkin holders. A perfect touch.
    Have a blessed Easter,

  13. April 2, 2015 at 10:51 am

    Beautifully done! I’m going to have to run to the Dollar Tree to find the cute chocolate bunny… and, (((everything is wonderful))), but I’m swooning over that burlap draped through the limbs. Gorgeous!

    This setting makes me want to start all over again! I adore garden themes. LOVE the beautiful plates. The glove napkin holder is just darling! I wonder if I can find the chocolate bunnies at my Dollar store. Want! This is all just delightful!

    So SO SO love this! Crushed I missed these plates, adore your hop and chocolates! I am admiring the calm blue and green out my window after a week if deafening wind, just when I thought I couldn’t be any more content you rear up my green eyed garden monster! The shed is kicking into overtime this year, so fun to live a year in pure photo play!

    Mary, being a Peter Rabbit fan, this table fills my heart with joy. I found some of those darling candies last year, but never got a post created. I may stop by $$$ Tree and see if I can find more. Love just about anything Peter Rabbit. ;-)
    Your bunny plates are the best! They would have hopped into my basket too, even though I have some cute bunny plates. The green toile design makes my heart swoon. Loving the galvanized chargers and letters too. You are so clever!
    I want to hop on into my computer screen and join the fun here. Happy Easter to you and the girls! ~ Sarah and Sadie

    Love your table and window above! Beatrix Potter is just the epitome of all things bunny to me. I collect bunnies and only have two Beatrix Potter’s. I must check out the Dollar Tree for the chocolates!

    The bunny settings in the potting shed are just beautiful. I love the candies and the dishes. I went to HomeGoods this week looking for bunny dishes, but there were none. Now, I need to go back to see if there is any vintage wrapped candies. I’m so glad I got to see them in your shed even if I don’t get to see them in person.

      Judith, I searched for Easter plates to no avail until one day after Valentine’s Day, Home Goods put the Easter goodies out, including those chocolates.

  29. April 3, 2015 at 7:48 am

    Too adorable Mary, LOVE your bunny plates and I can’t believe you found the Beatrix Potter chocolate bunnies at Dollar Tree! I have been looking at those galvanized letters for a year, thinking cool but what would I do with them, HOP is just perfect, especially in your potting shed full of bunnies! The napkins in the garden gloves, the egg garland, the blooming branches, it’s all as sweet as those chocolates on the plates! Wonderful fun…

  30. April 3, 2015 at 10:55 am

    Mary, you never disappoint and like so many others I look forward to your special creativity. Napkins in garden gloves….now that’s a winner!

  31. April 3, 2015 at 12:13 pm

    What a lovely and fun table! Those plates are beautiful, and using the gloves to hold the napkins is just brilliant! So whimsical. Love it!

    Mary, You may be the Halloween Queen but I really want to name you the Easter Empress~~all your posts have been so amazing and joyful! I LOVE Peter too and those chocolates are perfect for your table. The little gardening details are perfect for the Peter Rabbit theme. How about a Beatrix Potter week every year for us to enjoy? And the Easter cards are just beautiful. Happy Easter! Linda

    Mary, Your Easter setting in the potting shed is so lovely. The green and white bunny plates with the cabbage leaf chargers are just beautiful! Your style and photographs inspire me in my home. Love those chocolates from Home Goods. The old fashioned pictures on the wrappers are so cute. Since I discovered them on your blog I search for them each season at Home Goods. I give them away with little gifts. Also love the egg garland. You are blessed to have a little shed to decorate to your heart’s content! Thanks again for sharing all your ideas! Have a Joyful Easter.
