Hopping Down the Bunny Trail for Easter + Monday Morning Blooms
Find a round up of floral centerpieces and table inspiration for Easter. You’ll find tips for using spring flowering bulbs, blooming branches, a blooming cabbage vase, easy 5 minute centerpieces and more!
I’m hopping down the bunny trail and sharing a round-up of floral centerpieces and table inspiration with Easter on its way!
Flowers are harder to come by with fewer shopping trips these days while we’re all sheltering in place. Spring is in full swing here in North Carolina and I’m anxiously awaiting ‘the bloom’ and to have flowers to cut in the garden!
For this week’s edition of Monday Morning Blooms, we’re revisiting some favorite floral posts and sharing some blooming inspiration in anticipation of Easter. I know I find myself in need of some flower therapy these days and my hope is these flowers will help brighten your day too. ♥
Click on the links in red for the complete post, DIY details and table sources. You’ll find my blogging friends links to their floral inspiration at the bottom of this post.
DIY blooming table runner with fresh flowers for an Easter or spring table! Snowball viburnum blooms join hydrangeas and decorative eggs in a runner down the length of the table.
Alfresco table with a blooming watering can, butterflies and bunny and chick with eggs for spring or Easter.
Create an easy centerpiece, using the ‘vase within a vase’ method! The walls of the vase are filled with jelly beans that look like speckled eggs. The inner vase holds spring blooming dogwood branches and plum tree blossoms, with a few decorative eggs tucked among the blooms.
White chocolate bunnies from Dollar Tree are nesting in colorful paper shred “grass” alongside blooming hyacinths, in a tureen and a bunny cabbage vase.
Tulips fill a vase of jelly beans as a centerpiece for the table with colorful plaid, tulip dinnerware, bunnies and eggs
Tips and tricks to create an easy blooming basket centerpiece the EASY WAY for Easter
A fun DIY spring or Easter arrangement using a cabbage, along with a wheelbarrow-toting bunny and tablescape with Hilltop Garden friends!
Bunnies blooming with spring tulips, hyacinths, sprigs of forsythia and eggs on a favorite floral tablecloth.
This easy blooming centerpiece uses pots of bulbs from the garden center that can be planted in the garden after the blooms fade. You can see it used as a centerpiece for the table, here.
Bunny cottontail-white hydrangea join pink alstroemeria and Charmelia for a centerpiece.
A black and white table and departure from a pastel palette for Easter. Green Spanish moss provides a decorative layer over pots of muscari to nestle and ‘hide’ eggs. Lindt mini milk chocolate chicks and bunnies provide an edible treat tucked in among the blooms.
You may have noticed that I use this white soup tureen often for flower arranging (rarely for soup :). No flower arranging skills required when you drop in some potted flowering bulbs (paper-covered pot and all!) into your bowl, basket or tureen. You can usually find small pots of azaleas, Easter Lilies and flowering bulbs at the grocery store the week before Easter. Top with colorful Easter grass or paper shred, tuck in a few colorful eggs and add a vintage postcard for an Easter greeting.

Mary, Thank you for all the beauty and flower therapy in this post. I always look forward to seeing an email arrive in my inbox. So many gorgeous tables and blooms!

So many lovely table settings and ideas from each of you talented ladies. Easter blessings to your families~He is Risen!
Thank you Mary. Yes, I need flower therapy and I too have been finding it in my spring flowers that are blooming…hyacinths, daffodils and a few paper whites…the tulips will be a few weeks later…that’s in Indiana…it’s too early to go greenhouse shopping (in our neck of the woods) but I am soooooo ready!! I’m hoping by Easter we will be like Christ and come out of the darkness into the sunrise! Praying!! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
The Easter inspiration here is truly magnificent! You always make me smile and start my day off with great joy!

Mary, you inspire us all with your creativity. What a beautiful round-up of Easter tables and floral arrangements to enjoy while drinking my morning coffee. Spring has been so beautiful this year, maybe because we have had so much rain. I can’t wait to see your garden in full bloom. Flowers do bring a sense of peace and beauty anytime, but especially now. Wishing you and yours a joy-filled Easter. I look forward to when we can once again shop for flowers. It is always a pleasure to share Monday Morning Blooms with my friends♥️

Wow, these floral arrangements and tables…..very uplifting, extremely inspiring. Thanks, Mary. Happy Easter!
You are my peace, fun and sanity during this time….THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!!!!!!!!
Mary, This is a compilation of beautiful arrangements. We all need to see happy colors during this pandemic. Spring is a favorite season. Add bunnies, flowers along with wonderful tablescapes and it’s time to relax and enjoy! Thank you Mary for all of your pretty posts! They’re always so uplifting & cheerful. Happy Easter sweet friend! Clara♥️
All that brilliantly fun color! I went to a mega nursery this weekend in a downpour hoping all the germs were washing away, came home and planted in a hailstorm praying the lightning wouldn’t strike me dead, in other words I live for garden color! With the lockdown in place I forgot Easter was even on the calender, what calender, with husband home I barely know what season it is, with pouring rain a few days and sun here and there, is it winter or spring?! If you showed Christmas treats and arrangements I wouldn’t be the wiser and just as delighted!
Your tables and gardens always inspire me. I often decorate my table by duplicating parts of your amazing tablescapes. Sadly, with nobody coming over, I have been reluctant to decorate for just hubby and me. But last week, I decided to create a beautiful tablescape and found it to be therapeutic. I’m so glad I pushed through! Thank you for keeping us all on track!
You made my day! All of the BEAUTIFUL flowers and Easter decor is just what I needed to start my week. I was feeling a little sad about not having the family and grandkids over for Easter this year. But since we need to stay home we’ll make the best of it. I’m looking forward to a joyous but different Easter this year. THANK YOU for uplifting me today! Happy Easter to you and yours!
Love all the pretties! Stay well! Prayers sent your way!
So very pretty. We need to see a promise of Spring in this sad season of this virus.
What a flower feast and so good for the soul! Love it Mary and especially that beautiful embroidered runner. Did you do that lovely piece? Will visit each site again later as they as all so lovely, but I need to get outside now and start painting my picket fences. Have a blessed week and Happy Easter! 🛐🥀🐑🐇
Thank you for sending all of us these bright and cheerful flowers, so sad we won’t be spending Easter with our family this year. Enjoy your beautiful posts keep them coming.
Today you are the sunshine in our dark world. Bless you for showing us all there is a resererection to look forward to.
Thank you for the much needed flower therapy Mary, your arrangements always make me smile, and the Easter ones tucked full of surprises are joyful!
Pastel perfection, Mary! This post was a breath of fresh air! I pinned severl ideas for inspiration. Thank you!
Now I need to get out of my chair and create a pretty table. Hope you and your guy and those fluffy girls are staying safe and healthy. We are good, and as it’s been cool, grey, and rainy for days, we have been snuggled in by a cozy fire most days. Looks as if today may be brighter.
Thank you , thank you for your pretty, cheery picture filled post.
Wishing you a Blessed and A Happy Easter.
Marion,Marilyn and Joan
Such beautiful flower arrangements
Thank you for the springtime therapy, Mary!! All your tables are so incredibly gorgeous. I love the delicate, feminine plates in the first table and the cabbage table with the hydrangeas and the gingham napkins warms my heart. You’re the best for sharing all this happiness with us. Happy springtime 🐰🌷🐰
Mary, thank you for the magnificent flower therapy!!! It makes my heart sing and your large collection of table linens and setting are amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your talents.
Thank you so much for your visit and comment Pat! Stay safe ♥
Thank you so much for sharing the beautiful table settings. I just added flowers to my grocery list. Even though spring break with our daughter and her children has been cancelled for this upcoming week I will make an effort to have a pretty table for my husband and I on Easter. You have inspired me.
Mary you rock
