Perfectly pink flatware shares a shade of pink for the party! A pink and white Easter egg has the pewter bunny now holding the cup on his back! The small brown bunny rests himself  in the setting.
 The china mug shows the blue postcard mark along with the precious French bunny and sayings.
 Delicate Bohemian crystal goblet and champagne flute are etched with lovely pink flowers which adds an elegant touch!
 These beautiful brown bunnies create enchantment to the scene with green bows, embroidery, and the repetition of green and white checked edging.
The Easter centerpiece balances the table with two carved brown bunnies dressed with green bows! The fresh bouquet of flowers has shades of bright pink, green and blue in a green glass hobnail vase!
 The vase sits on a pewter rabbit stand surrounded by colorful chocolate Easter candy for dessert!
 More Easter!
Shelves of  bunnies dressed in their Sunday best! The 222 Fifth china pattern "Bunny Land" is perfect with different colored checked trim and 4 rabbit styles. Pale green glassware has an intricate pressed rabbit design.
 Nicole Miller Home rabbits with gold ears and eggs share more Easter candy. Centered between them is a white teapot globe displaying white flowers and a monarch butterfly!

Snow people playing in the Snow

My Happy Birthday Teapot.
 

A successful birthday was a surprise teapot from my wonderful son.
 
Snow people tablescape.

While the Northeast is covered in snow, only the center of my table has any snow.
Our snow people are enjoying a cold day. The Norfolk Island Pine tree brings the outside in.
The silver penguins stand tall with the snow people.
The place setting is a mixture of blue and white shimmer as the colors of winter.
The Wedgwood "Intaglio" pattern sets off the beauty of the season.
The gorgeous detail gives texture to the scene. 
The clear bowl of the goblet is supported by a blue stem and foot.
Cambridge blue handled flatware is flanked by the satin striped napkin held by the blue beaded napkin ring.
Enjoying the warmth while looking out on the cold exterior.
