Hopping off to the Easter Table

Bunnies, bunnies everywhere! Easter is always about bunnies, and eggs. My table has Anna Lee, ceramic bunnies baskets, and place card holders.

The center piece of bunnies raised on varing heights cake stands are surrounded by easter egg garlands. Mr and Mrs Bunny are carrying baskets of baby chicks and eggs. The sign Bunny Time says it all for a fun Easter scape.

The green dinner plates have embossed bunnies along the rim were made by Boradello Pierho. A ceramic pink bunny basket sits in the middle of each plate holding a bounty of Easter candies.
The Williams and Sonoma collection of bunny atop an egg grace each tumbler.

The green handled stainless is accents the pale green table cloth and the green stripe in the placemat and napkin. The bunny stands guard on each pink napkin and placemat.

I just adore the bunny napkin ring from the Williams and Sonoma Collection.

Each place setting is adorned with a ceramic egg candle holder and a pastel bunny place card holder.

The center piece is flanked by two urns holding glitter covered eggs. This coordinates with the egg garland.

A bunny is holding super sized purple egg to enhance the over all spirit of the Easter table.

Mr Bunny is seen carefully carrying a basket of young yellow chicks.

Mrs Bunny is seen parading in a pink boa and skirt tending to her baby duckling.

She is so proud of her purple Easter bonnet and ruby and pearl necklace.

Mr Bunny is leading the Grand Easter parade with baton in hand.

His smile send joy and greeting to all that join in his parade.

A shiny purple bunny nestles in the glitter egg garland.

St. Patty's Day 2010

Hurray for Saint Patrick's Day!

This table scape beckons the Leprechauns to venture into the Texas Tea Party.

The center piece is set upon a 3 tiered green pie plate stand. Each tier is tied with shamrock bows.

A daring Irish lass stands tall leading the way to the pot of gold down Shamrock Alley.

Atop the pie stand is an Shelley Regency covered muffin dish.

The next tier is set with an individual Spode strawberry server. The tiny tray, plus the cream and sugar are all in a cabbage leaf design.

An antique green floral chintz jug will serve green beer on this special day.

A close up of the jug shows the detail of its tiger head spout.

Each place setting is layered begining with a green place mat, a Royal Doulton Belvedere dinner plate, a green rose shaped napkin holding a shamrock shaped candle dish.

As the candle flickers, the green tableware creates an appealing ambiance.

A close up shows the lace edge of the round placemat as well as the green and gold filagree on the dinner plate.

The shamrock and green mug is softened by a pale green bow. The French wine glass was purchased from Horchow.

The smiling lad holds a lucky shamrock to give hope to each guests to find the pot of gold.

The lovely lass sends you a happy Saint Patrick's Day wish.
