At the Table: Farmer Bunny, A Blooming Cabbage and Hilltop Garden Friends

Celebrate spring at the table with a blooming cabbage centerpiece, mini cabbage bowl flower arrangements, a wheelbarrow toting bunny and Hilltop Garden friends! Additionally, you’ll find spring table inspiration from 26 table stylists and bloggers.

 Spring arrives in just two weeks, at least by the calendar anyway!  In anticipation, I’m joining a group of bloggers with a Springtime Tablescape Blog Hop!

Look for the links at the bottom of this post for more spring table inspiration this week through March 8th.

This Blooming Cabbage was a fun DIY and makes a festive addition to your spring or St. Patrick’s Day table! You can find the steps to create your own with tips to prolong the life of your flowers, HERE.

I made a separate bouquet filled with pink tulips, hydrangeas and Charmelia to transition the cabbage vase from the greens of St. Patrick’s Day to spring. Voila!. . . a Spring Blooming Cabbage Arrangement!

Farmer Bunny swapped out his serving bowl for this Blooming Cabbage to usher in spring and provide a centerpiece for the table.

A Ralph Lauren Antibes floral red tablecloth provides a foundation for a spring tablescape with colorful bouquets of flowers.

Farmer Bunny’s Hilltop Garden Friends include birds and fellow bunnies. The four assorted salad plates are framed with cabbage leaf plates and scalloped chargers.

Mini cabbage bowls are serving up mini bouquets of assorted blooms. . .ruffled carnations, pink alstroemeria, mini white chrysanthemums and white and blue hydrangeas.

White embossed napkin rings provide additional blooms along with Portmeirion Botanical Garden flatware, serving up blooms and butterflies.

    Mary, Your creativity knows no bounds! I adore your “Farmer Bunny” wheeling the blooming cabbage as a centerpiece for your table. So pretty with the pink tulips sprouting up among the hydrangeas.That RL tablecloth takes my breath away with those old-fashioned sprays of flowers and cabbage roses. Thank you for the beautiful start to my day on a chilly 9 degree morning. Spring can’t get here quick enough for me!

  2. March 5, 2019 at 7:15 am

    Lovin’ those fun salad plates Mary! 17 degrees right now… Bring on spring:@)

    Mary, This helps satisfy my craving for spring! I love your wheelbarrow bunny and your cabbage centerpiece is so beautiful. I would have never thought of using a cabbage as a vase. I love your sweet plates, I see a trip to Pottery Barn in my future! Joy

  4. March 5, 2019 at 7:50 am

    Mary, the sun is actually shining today and your table makes it feel like spring irregardless of the temperature! I am a little smitten with the tablecloth, it is a beautiful garden background for your scalloped chargers, cabbage leaf plates, and the hilltop garden friends. Farmer Bunny’s wheelbarrow is carrying a beautiful blooming cabbage that makes a stunning centerpiece! The mini cabbage bowls with their mini bouquets adds more spring fun. Thank you for a dose of spring, it was much needed. It is always a pleasure to enjoy a seat at one of your tables❤️

  5. March 5, 2019 at 7:52 am

    Another table that is worthy of a standing ovation!…Not only can you take away such great inspiration for your Easter or Spring table, you can gather inspiration from your sweet little vignettes to place on tables and counters throughout the house…I can see that cabbage wielding bunny sitting on MY kitchen counter! Or the cup filled with flowers on the bathroom counter! I saw that wheelbarrow bunny at PB and passed it up..not a good move! Mary, you bring us sheer Joy!!! Have a most wonderful day!

  6. March 5, 2019 at 7:52 am

    What a lovely blooming table! Those rabbit plates are just darling, and I still love your silver rabbit with his cart. So cute!! Your table is lovely, as usual! So fun hopping with you!!

      Such a beautiful table setting, it just screams spring, from the gorgeous tablecloth, the cute dishes to the lovely floral arrangements and most certainly Farmer Binny Rabbit. Thanks for ushering in spring with this imaginative table and for yesterday’s tutorial.

    Farmer Bunny and friends are adorable! Love that wheelbarrow centerpiece. The burst of spring blooms on the table with the linens and flatware make me happy. Those plates make me want to hop on over to PB and check out the garden offerings, but the fence of moving has me contained – momentarily! There’s always something creative blooming here at Home is Where the Boat Is, and I always, always look forward to your inspiring posts!

  8. March 5, 2019 at 8:29 am

    I love your farmer bunny proudly pushing his wheelbarrow with his prize blooming cabbage! The profusion of flowers is so happy, and declares a celebration of Spring! Love the mini bouquets in the cups and the cabbage chargers, and of course the bunny plates, Happy hopping Mary!

    This is so pretty and cute! Absolutely love that bunny with the cabbage filled bouquet and your other arrangment is fantastic too! The RL tablecloth is a wonderful backdrop and of course I love those PB Hilltop Garden salad plates. The green cabbage dishes really enhance the look of the salad plates and I’m loving the mini cabbage bowls with the flowers too!

    So so beautiful! Spring is here 💕💕

  13. March 5, 2019 at 9:02 am

    Mary, as you can see by the comments….everyone loves your wheel barrow bunny and I am no exception. You have shown us how to make that cabbage vase before and although I followed your instructions, mine did not turn out as crisp and lovely as yours. Perhaps it is the choice of flowers, which is always one of your specialties. My flower shopping is limited unless I include giant hibiscus. LOL Your tablecloth and napkins are perfect, showcasing all your details…It is always such fun to blog hop with you because you are such an inspiration. I would love to sit at your side and watch you assemble, pick and choose all the elements that make your tables special.

    This is a beautiful tablescape! It is so colorful & those salad plates are lovely & fresh looking! I love Mr. Bunny delivering the cabbage floral arrangement. Your talent is such a blessing to all of us! Clara 🐇🐥💕

  16. March 5, 2019 at 10:35 am

    Your table décor is so pretty and I love your centerpiece! How creative! I’ve never thought of using a cabbage to hold flowers. Those plates are precious! Hugs!

  17. March 5, 2019 at 10:47 am

    Mary, you had me at Farmer Bunny, but the little chicks plate made me smile. Beautiful table, florals and farmer bunny.

    Mary love your ideas and creative talent!

    Would the farmer bunny be able to hold bowls other than the one it came with from PB?

    Thank you!!

    • March 5, 2019 at 11:53 am

      Thank you Karen, yes he could 🐰🌸🌺😀

  19. March 5, 2019 at 11:02 am

    I adore Farmer Bunny! I adore all bunnies, living or faux! And your table and the flowers are simply divine. Truly spring, even if it doesn’t feel as though it will land here for another two or three months. (No, I don’t live down under. I live in Michigan. Winter lasts!). Makes me smile and very springy, this post!

  20. March 5, 2019 at 11:29 am

    May not feel and look like spring outside, but it certainly is on this gorgeous table. Farmer Bunny is an adorable star of your table. It is freezing here, but the sun is bright today. First sunny day in weeks!

    I’m always in awe of your tables, Mary. Your silver toting bunny is just the cutest holding your Cabbage filled with springtime blooms. Your tablecloth, played, napkin rings and mini cabbages look enchanting. It got down into the 20’s here, but will be warming up by the end of the week. Thanks for the Spring-y table. 💐🌷💐

  35. March 5, 2019 at 6:31 pm

    Mary, your cute silver bunny and wheelbarrow “cabbage” holder captured my heart and attention. So lovely as it is also whimsical. It is so unique to use the cabbage head as a floral vase. Love it. Your beautifully displayed table works so well together. I absolutely love your choice of tablecloth. Your cabbage plates and bunny plates take it to the top. Gorgeous. I always enjoy your work and I enjoyed blog hopping along with you.
