Hopping Down the Bunny Trail Table + Spring Blooming Centerpiece

I’m hopping down the bunny trail with a table for Easter, with bunnies, eggs and a spring blooming centerpiece!

Green and white toile bunny plates are layered on cabbage leaf plates atop carved white chargers, and moss bunnies hopped to the table to join a centerpiece of spring blooms.

 Daffodils are the harbingers of spring and if spring had a “smell” it would be hyacinths! This blooming centerpiece uses both daffodils and hyacinths in a “welcome spring” centerpiece or for your Easter table!

You can find a  quick & easy method to create a centerpiece for a spring or Easter table, HEREno green thumb required! It takes about 10 minutes to create once you have your supplies gathered. After your flowers are spent, plant them in the garden to enjoy the blooms next spring.

Mini pots of hyacinths have mini colored eggs. . .

And speckled jelly beans fill cabbage leaf bowls.

Portmeirion Botanic Garden is one of my favorite flatware patterns for spring and Easter! It’s hard to photograph but if you look closely you can see butterflies below the tines of the forks.

The weather is ideal for dining on the porch in North Carolina. The mercury hit 80 degrees yesterday which is too warm for my liking for April! We’re on a typical weather roller coaster for spring, but still a tad too early to plant with freeze warnings for this weekend.

Tabletop gardening with spring blooms provides some flower therapy and helps bide my time another couple of weeks until we’re past our freeze date.

    Mary, what a perfect table. I can’t seem to get enough of the hyacinths this year, I love their fragrance, but my hubby doesn’t care for it. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!

    Mary you cause me to long to be in North Carolina! I lived there until 1989 and loved the early Springs. Here in Colorado our safe day to plant is May 15th. We had snow yesterday and the temp when I got up this mornings was in the 20’s. Please keep showing us what it’s like living there. I can almost smell the Hiacinths!

    Total delight with those daffodils and hyacinths. I can just imagine how heavenly this smells.
    We are having a lovely spring with cool mornings and warm afternoons. I’ve been a slave to the garden in recent weeks, and things are taking shape. One bed left in the back, and I think I’ll have it all clean for spring.
    This table is so happy! I love the toile bunny plates, and should I ever come across them I know I won’t resist. Not that I need any more bunny plates, but then it has never been about need. Ha! Ha!
    The napkins are also calling my name. I like the simplicity of the dots on the edge Perfect compliment to the flowery tablecloth.
    Thanks for sharing all this spring beauty. Have a great day!

    Such a wonderful display of fresh Spring ideas! You make me want to dig out my dishes & start playing again.
    I think I have those little green dishes to go with my cabbage green stuff. I could never fill them with jelly beans for our Easter dinner though. The kids would eat all of them FIRST & then complain they were too full to finish the main meal. I don’t remember seeing your Portmeirion Botanic Garden flatware pattern before. I must have been asleep! Beautiful table!!!

    Mary! It is ALL SO LOVELY! Thank you for another wonderful Springtime view. Thank you for ALL your hard work. We who live in the northern states have to bide our time for our Spring flowers as the frost warning for MI doesn’t lift until MAY 31st! Not fair!! But we can do as you have mentioned and go get some pots of flowers from the grocery or Walmart and enjoy them indoors. And that is exactly what I’m going to do today! Was in my garden shed with a small space heater going yesterday for 2 hours, dusting the shelves and sweeping up a few dead flies! ha. Loved every minute of it. I love the napkins and the flatware is stunning – the little butterfly adds a special touch. Thanks.

    What a gorgeous Easter table, Mary. Yes, I see the butterfly on the times of the fork! The toile bunny plates are sooo pretty and I love the dotted edged napkins. Of course, your centerpiece is causing me to take a deep whiff…so wanting to smell those hyacinths!

    Mary, as usual, you outdid yourself. What a lovely table, but I could never use real flowers or anything that smells.
    I was able to snag two of the green bunny plates last year. You have to be really fast in this area.
    I am always blown away by your photography skills.

    Another beautiful table and centerpiece…..I am off to Trader Joe’s to create my live centerpiece…Thanks for the never ending inspiration!!!

    So adorable Mary! LOVE the blooming centerpiece, but my favorite thing about this table is the napkins, so cute! And the bitty butterfly on the fork! We had golf ball sized hail in Bham on Wednesday, it was nuts! I hope Mother Nature is finished with her antics and you can get planting soon… we always wait until after the Masters, it’s usually safe by then 🌷
