Bunnies are blooming at the table in anticipation of spring.

For a centerpiece for the table, I started with a pair of bunnies with baskets.

To arrange the flowers and support the stems, I used a favorite flower arranging method and tool, chicken wire, as the wire is reusable.

Any chicken wire will work but I like using the coated or painted variety as it doesn’t rust in your vase water. Cut your chicken wire wider and longer than your container, so you have a several inches of wire on all sides of your container to bend inside and hold the wire securely in place. If needed, use waterproof floral tape to secure your wire to your container.

Pink and yellow tulips, yellows roses and a few ruffled carnations were recycled from my Monday Morning Blooms Floral Arrangement with Citrus. I picked up a $4 bunch of alstroemeria to refresh the bunny bouquets.

    Oh my goodness Mary! You have done a fantastic job of bring spring to life! The thing I love most about the arrival of spring is watching all the colors unfold, and you have certainly created that vision. If I had to pick a favorite part of your gorgeous table, it would have to be those adorable bunnies and their baskets of flowers, but I really love it all!

    Those bunny plates are adorable and I am swooning over the pretty tulips, roses, and alstroemeria in the bunny baskets. Add checked napkins and blooming napkin rings with the delightful floral cloth and magic happens. I am so ready for spring and you have brought it beautifully to your table.

  3. March 3, 2020 at 6:39 am

Oh, and those cute cookies in the cabbage bowls – they look like little blossoms. I am always inspired by your design aesthetic. Thank you for being party to this blog hop – I love your company, and you’re simply the best!

    The sweet bunnies with the basket of tulips, alstroemeria, and roses are so perfect for spring. The bunny plates are adorable mixed with checked napkins and blooming napkin rings. Your table brightens another rainy day. It poured all day yesterday, all night, and continues today. It is always a pleasure to blog hop with you. Happy Tuesday, Mary!

    Just beautiful!! I have come to get my floral fix!! You do florals so well. Every time I pick up a floral tablecloth I end up putting it back down because I am afraid of so much color. Your colorful floral tables are soooo fabulous!!! This one just exudes spring in the happiness sense!! Love it❀ Thanks for starting off the hop with an awe inspiring table!!!

  7. March 3, 2020 at 7:19 am

    You always make the most beautiful ambiance with your tablescapes! It feels so much like Spring with the pretty floral tablecloth and your tulip bunny centerpieces are gorgeous. I love the chicken wire tip to use painted to avoid that rust problem. We desperately need a Trader Joe’s where I live! Happy Spring!

    Mary, I am so inspired by your beautiful bunny floral arrangements. The use of fresh flowers always makes such a difference to a tablesetting. I love your tablecloth and how you paired them up with the green and white gingham napkins. Gingham check is always symbolic to a colorful Spring. Your use of Spring cookies in your decor is a simple decor tip and yet makes such a huge statement. Spring is definitely at your table. As always, it is a pleasure to join you at this blog hop.

  23. March 3, 2020 at 12:01 pm

    Another fabulous tablescape Mary! I love the colors in the cloth that provides the foundation for the charming setting. Oh and those bunny floral centerpieces! You are so talented at flower arranging. Gonna remember the tip about using coated chicken wire — didn’t realize there was such a thing. And those cute floral cookies from TJ’s are the perfect little spring table treat. Will have to head over and grab some.

  24. March 3, 2020 at 12:29 pm

    Mary, always a treasure to view your beautiful tablescape. Love the bunnies. I shall give the chicken wire a try. Thanks for sharing your tips. The florals are lovely. Who could reis those sweet bunny faces? I need to hop along to Home Goods. The blooming napkin rings are so pretty. Such a pretty spring table. Always a pleasure to hop along with you.

    Ohhhhh, such sweet “bunny-love”! Love the tulips! Love it all. Now that March is here, the winter greenery and snowmen have been put away for another year and today is the day to start putting out spring things, even though we still have snow on the ground. Your table is just the inspiration I need to get busy and get hopping! P.s. Oh, I forgot to mention yesterday with the bee theme, I thought the lace loops around the garden glove reminded me of bees wings! Loved that post too. đŸ‡đŸ„€đŸâ™„ïžđŸ‡đŸ„€đŸâ™„ïž

    You have the best way of arranging flowers. You are a color expert. I love your work! Could you tell me the name of the white beaded charger you use many times. Have tried all your places you list with no luck. Don’t know how you do it but you always outdo yourself. How are the girls…missing seeing them.

  28. March 3, 2020 at 4:18 pm

    You really, really are the BEST at tables. You always give me so much inspiration! I love the fresh flowers in the bunny’s baskets! Such gorgeous tulips! Everything is perfect. I have the same napkin rings and LOVE the bunny plates!!!!

  29. March 3, 2020 at 4:34 pm

    Oh, this table just makes me feel happy! It’s so cheerful and vibrant! I wish my Home Goods had those adorable bunny plates. Everything looks so great together…the chargers, the layered plates, those napkins and napkin holders. Just gorgeous, Mary!
