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!

At the Table with Easter Greetings

 I’m sending Easter Greetings your way, at the table with eggs, blooms and vintage postcards!

I’m at the table embracing a little garden & cottage style that blossomed from some dish inspiration~  Pfaltzgraff Tea Rose.

A  patchwork quilt with a blooming field of…

A-Tisket, A-Tasket

A-Tisket, A-Tasket, I filled an Easter Basket. . . With some hydrangeas and bunny-approved veggies, along with a few Easter Eggs for a casual Easter table centerpiece! Bunnies are hiding among the flowers on the runner and napkins~ They also hide among the salad greens  with  Petite Palmiers masquerading as Bunny Ears :)  Necessity is the mother of…

Bunny Ears Salad

I saw this adorable idea for Petite Palmiers  as Bunny Ears hiding among the salad greens on Pinterest, original source, here.

A mosaic urn, with a little floral relief and shards of flowering china, purchased many years ago, is joining the celebration~…

Lunching with Bunnies

We’re Lunching with Bunnies~ not quite ready to see them hop away so quickly after Easter.

After…
