Rabbits Hop On For An Easter Table and Easy Centerpiece

My rabbits have hopped right up to the table to become the main attraction in an Easter centerpiece.





The rabbit in the center holds azaleas blooms from our yard. 


I love spring flowers and blooming shrubs so when our azaleas bloom, my heart sings a happy song.



Pink and white Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage dinnerware is layered on placemats that I just quilted using Moda fabric.



White chop plates also by Bordallo Pinheiro are used as a base for the pink plates and white bowls.




These Fitz and Floyd rabbits are sitting on a quilted table runner also made from Moda fabric.







I love the 1847 Rogers Daffodil pattern flatware. I try to use it for Easter or other spring tablescapes. 


The flatware is such a treasure to me since it was a gift my Dad gave my Mom years ago. 

You can see the blooming daffodils on the ends of the flatware pieces. 



The pink goblets are Fostoria Heritage. 






The centerpiece was super easy. I started with a cereal bowl for a little height then added a plate on top. Next a small berry wreath that I've had for years was placed on the plate.  The rabbit vase was added in the center of the plate and secured with packing tape for stability. Green Easter grass was used to fill in the space around the rabbit. You might be wondering why I just didn't use a cake stand. I did try one but it was a bit higher than I wanted. 



There you have it, an Easter table for four with an easy Rabbit centerpiece.





Hope you will be enjoying Easter with your family or friends - Judy.

Judy, The daffodil flatware is really nice. Thanks for describing the process for the center piece. I don't think I would have thought of it. It worked well. Your rabbits are wonderful with flowers and lovelies all around them. Thanks. Sylvia D.

What a wonderful tab4lescape, Judy - it's the perfect mix of whimsy and classic - I love your majolica ware - and your special Daffodil flatware is gorgeous- what an heirloom to have.

I read this past weekend that Daffodils are considered to be "Lenten Lilies," meaning they arrive at the beginning of Lent and (usually) begin to wane at the arrival of Easter, when the Easter Lily takes over.......but here when I live it is definately daffodil season and my traditional Easter lily is an early summer plant that blooms.

Anyway, thanks for your visit, hope your Easter was wonderful as you are. Hugs. Happy spring! ♥♥♥
