To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

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
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
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
