Here Come the Bunnies ~ An Easter Tablescape and a Surprising Switcheroo

Welcome friends to Here Come the Bunnies ~ An Easter Tablescape and a Surprising Switcheroo.

The extra fun part of this tablescape is the surprising switcheroo.

The rustic Spring centerpiece I created set the tone for the entire Easter tablescape.

Water hyacinth placemats create a charming natural base for the plates I’m using in this tablescape.  The first plate is a large green Bordallo Pinheiro plate which is one of the five I found here.

Topping the Bordallo Pinheiro plate is a brown transferware plate from Alfred Meakin.  The back of the plate reads  “Fairwinds, Historical Scenes of Chinese Export to America, The Friendship of Salem,  Alfred Meakin, Made in England.

The last plate is one of a set of four adorable bunny salad plates.  Isn’t it just the sweetest?

Each of the salad plates features a different bunny pose.  They have a crackle finish giving them a vintage look.  Which, of course, I love.

The thrifted brown toile napkins complement this selection of plates, beautifully.  I folded the napkins flat and tied them with a piece of jute twine.  Then I slipped a garden marker with the guest’s name under the twine.

Now to finish the tablescape I’m adding some Rogers Silverplate flatware that belonged to my Mom and my Mikasa Park Lane goblets

BUT WAIT.  If you aren’t as enamored with the bunnies as I am, you might like the J Willfred plates I found here.  So a quick switcheroo makes the tablescape look very different.

Which is your favorite look?

  1. Too hard to choose, Sharon! But, I think maybe I’ll choose the bunnies, and just because it’s Easter. Ask me again on Monday and I might choose the grape leaf (or, that would make another great tablescape for late summer!).

  2. Kathy A. says:

    Loved your tablescape! I love the bunnies for Easter!

  3. Though both tablescapes are l -o -v -i I – lee, I vote for the Bunnies as well since it is Easter and gives the opportunity to celebrate the little critters. -Brenda-

    Gee, I thought your table was lovely with just the centerpiece in the last post! Now, it’s knockout! I adore those plates with the rabbits…so quaint and charming. I love that your Easter setting is natural and rustic, rather than pastel and garish. It’s very relaxing and somehow comforting.

  5. Love the use of the sugar mold as your centerpiece & the variety of plates are nice too!

  6. Cute tablescape. I love the bunny dishes.

  7. The bunny plates are absolutely adorable! Thank you for sharing your Easter tablescape with us at the #HomeMattersParty this week.

    Both tablescapes are beautiful, but I love those sweet bunnies! I have a sugar mold on my basement table most of the time. Cute idea to put clay pots in it! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
    Jann

  9. That is such a pretty table! I have been seeing so many cute plates for Easter through this Welcome Spring Linky! I love the green lettuce plates and those adorable bunnies. Pinned.

I love to hear what you think.
