BUNNIES IN THE GARDEN....TABLESCAPE WHIMSY


I will say from the beginning,
I decided I was really not going to decorate for Easter
this year.......at least not too much.
But then, something catches my eye
that inspires me to create something we can
all enjoy for the holiday.
And....this little chocolate bunny called,
Carrot Patch Pete....just was too cute not
to feature on the farmhouse table!
And so it began........


I wanted the theme to be
"Bunnies in the Garden"
with little accents of carrots....
spring greens and vibrant orange from the carrots!
When I found these darling paper plates,
well....it was just going to come together
with what I had hoped for!


It is ever so easy to use certain pieces over and over
when you have the basics...
woven charges, white dinner plates
and I never mind using holiday paper plates as an accent.
I also took Waverly material and cut strips for a touch of spring green. 


I added some matching napkins 
and
found this cute little bunny "driving a carrot"
at Kroger of all places!


For the centerpiece I chose my favorite garden rabbit......


These petit fours from Stein's bakery
were from Greg's birthday bash....
see that tiny carrot....
after we noshed on the little cakes.....


I added it to the new bunny...
how perfect is this!


I just think this is THE cutest accent......


This fun theme just took on a life of it's own......
adorable salt and pepper shakers.....


I found carrot shakers, as well as
garden rabbits.....


These are just those little kitchen accents
that will one day be "vintage".....


It's actually fun to see what little accents you can add....


I think it was the perfect casual theme for the farmhouse table.........



I really had a great time creating this!
I cannot wait to see what YOU have created in

  7. oh so adorable! a beautiful little beatrix potter table right there in texas!
    once I worked in a large hotel and convention center. I had to dress up as an easter bunny.
    I had finished my duties for the day and stood in line at the sumptuous buffet.
    so far I had only put a spoon full of carrot raisin salad on my plate.
    a tiny voice behind me said "look mom! he do eats carrots!"
    I smiled to myself and just took my plate to my table. I wasn't about to disappoint the little person! XO♥ (and yes... later I got everything! I was one ravenous rabbit!)
