Here Comes Peter Cottontail


Welcome to the world
of
Easter.

Peter Rabbit and his sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail are waiting for Easter. Their baskets are filled with beautiful Easter Eggs to pass out on April 20. 2014.
 
The Peter Rabbit tea set is by Wedgwood! The child size set was presented to me by husband after our son was born for he knew I love tea parties. It has been part of the collection of Peter Rabbit.
 The tea the bunnies will serve is in a pink tin and is the India tea. 
 
 As Mrs. Rabbit readies the bunnies by helping them with their jackets. Spring is here and it is almost time for Easter.
The teapot and Peter Rabbit book have the illustrations and text are composing the story.

Part of my collection includes the Peter Rabbit Counting Book and contains Peter and other characters in the stories by Beatrix Potter!

A ceramic sign displays the Beatrix Potter collectibles, the two cups and saucers of the Peter Rabbit tea set, and two bunnies in white for salt and pepper.

Plush Peter Rabbit and a sister have colored their eggs and placed them in pastel checked covering a white Easter basket.

Each sister's jacket has an embroided name to identify their own. This jacket is for Miss Cottontail Rabbit.

The sister's, Flopsy and Mopsy. have also readied their  Easter baskets for April 20th!

The table topper is printed with bunnies, baskets and tulips.

The end of the table with the place setting for you sit down and enjoy.

A set of porcelain plates by Pottery Barn Kids is "The World of Beatrix Potter". Each has a blue. green, yellow or pink background with a checked rim.

The center of this plate has the three sisters napping by the lettuce patch.
The other end of the table is a place setting for me! I will be dining on the green Rabbit plate with an illustration of Mrs. Rabbit and Peter.

The close-up shows her buttoning his blue jacket before sending him out.

Another illustration displays Mrs. Rabbit talking to the sister bunnies. This plate has a yellow background with the checked rim.

The mother bunny is giving them a basket to gathering greens and maybe an egg!

The sister bunnies have brought home the greens. The pink plated also has the checked rim.

The little sisters are eating out of their bowl.

The pastel checks are popping up on the napkins and their are pink, green or yellow. An orange carrot is place on each napkin as a treat filled with candy!

A cute tiny bunny napkin ring encircles the pink checked napkin.

Peter Rabbit flatware matches the pastel plates from Pottery Barn Kids. The pink woven place mats adds a basis for each place setting.

Placed at the top of the place setting is a rabbit face egg with bunny ears which is placed in the tulip egg holder. This is another candy filled treat for each guest.

A pink ceramic basket contains speckled mini eggs.

Pottery Barn Kids has a sweet glass with two different illustrations matching the plates and flatware.

An elegant touch is created with the pink etched goblet with a clear stem!

The dining room is dressed for Easter and even the china cabinet has pink garlands and a Happy Easter wreath.

 Sending you an Easter Greeting is Mrs. Pink Bear decked out in her pink Easter Ears and pink checked bow!
 
Little Miss White Bear dressed herself in white Easter Ears and wants to say,
" Have a Happy Easter Day "!!!!!

Tip your hat to St. Paddy's Day

The Luck Of The Irish To You
The table is set to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
I hope you will come to the party!
 On the right side of the centerpiece is a large green candle holder with a white candle with green split peas as support. The green bowler is tipped for St. Paddy's Day and sports a shamrock flask. A bouquet of green and white is displayed in a green stein.
 The green bowler is decorated with a celadon shamrock as is the green shamrock on the flask.
 The left side of the centerpiece has a tipped bowler, too. This time the flask accompanying it has a green mustache.
 In the background of the table. a banner spells out "Happy St. Patrick's Day"!

The coffee pot is situated on a square clear cake stand bedecked with the green "IRISH" sign.
 You can ask us to pass the creamer
 or the sugar to take your coffee as you wish!
 The Irish flowers are green and white carnations with the addition of a few white jonquils
and with the sparkling top hats to continue the theme of hats.

Each setting begins with the green felt hat place mat.
 As a simple white dinner plate by 10 Strawberry Street begins the layers.
 The next plate is by Hutschenreuther with the pattern name of Weinlaub which translates "vine leaves" as the mark displays.

The lovely green vine decorates the scalloped rim of the salad plate. I was shopping a cute store and there appeared this porcelain china by Hutschenreuther. How happy I was to find the coffee set containing a coffee pot, creamer, sugar bowl, six cups, six saucers, and salads.
 A green soup bowl will contain our green split pea soup.
This wonderful bowl is really the shape of the green Irish top hat with a shamrock and gold buckle by Clay Art.

Green flatware by Orfevres of Argent graces the setting with a tea towel of scattered green shamrocks as a napkin. The napkin ring is a green arm band with a shamrock saying Irish for the Day. Are you Irish or part Irish? It really doesn't matter you can be Irish by just wearing the arm band.
 The green glass goblet is the pattern buttons & bows. Each place setting has a different individual flask and this one wishes "Luck of the Irish".
 You may wish a cup of coffee from the pretty coffee pot or tea from sweet tea pot.
 Your place of honor is at the end of the table, so please take a seat.
 The cute sayings on each individual flask
is what signals a greeting of "I' shamrock ST. PADDY'S DAY"!

Have a wonderful time on March 17th!
