I now have a small collection of dishes with these beautiful bunnies on them! This year I found this bucket to plant a beautiful, fragrant, hyacinth. The pieces are made by Maxcera and have all been found at Home Goods. It has taken me a few years to acquire them but I love them! I brought out my box to create my centerpiece. I have filled it with the platter, the hyacinth in the bucket, a faux chocolate bunny and a faux cabbage.
A green and white MINI striped tablecloth provides the foundation. An orange placemat, my cabbage leaf placemat, a white charger, green dinner, bunny salad and bunny bowl make up the stack.
A small bunny is peeking out from the bowl. I am also using my other green handled flatware that I don't use a lot.
Some carrots and a tiny bunny sit on the edge of the box.
The mugs are a generous size and have been used for hot chocolate on the chilly mornings we have had. I am LONGING for REAL Spring weather!
Isn't this such a pretty design!?
I got the carrot napkins at Pier 1 this year. The cabbage napkin rings came from Pier 1 last year.
I added a simple egg garland to the table as well.
After living with this setting for a day I decided it needed another punch of color. I had originally thought I should stick with just green and white dishes but the orange dinner plates add to the color of the carrots and the napkins.
I like this a lot better.
The above pictures were taken on a cloudy, rainy day but yesterday the sun came back out so I got some shots.
Good morning Mr. Bunny!
I think this setting will keep us happy til Easter. It is hard to believe it is coming up so soon!
I hope you are having some nice, Spring weather. We will be soon, I know. Thanks for your visit!
Good morning friends! Saturday was a gorgeous Spring day. The sun was shining and the temps got up to 77 degrees!!!!! We had a memorial mass and luncheon to attend, but got home and I got changed quickly so I could get the front porch and foyer all set for Spring/Easter! Welcome!!!! I am reusing the wreath I made last year til Easter then will make a new one for Spring/Summer.
I placed some faux flowers into my urn and put my tall bunny next to it.
When I took these photos on Sat. I hadn't had a chance to get some pansies so I just placed some faux flowers into the bunny planter.
This one got a faux cabbage.
My welcome mat is layered over the everyday one.

Come on inside!
I have had this large bunny outside on the porch in past years but decided to put him here by the steps.
The candles have 2 different rings.
One has daisies and small white berries,
the other has blue flowers and berries.
I decided to put this green bunny on the first step too.
To the left on the little cabinet is my rattan lamp, a ceramic egg on a stand, and the Mama bunny with her little one.
By the front door I have this bunny, he is OLD but one of my favorites!
I have kept the Spring refresh rather simple this year. I few bunnies, but not too much as we do cook everyday. So I need to keep it functional as well as pretty! One of the best things I like to do in the Spring is bring in some flowers and plants! I found these 2 African violets at the grocery store. I chose them because I loved the color and the ruffled edges on the violets!
The white petals rimmed with green are beautiful to me. The little pale blue pots match my utensil holder perfectly. Later, in the summer I will repot them.
I made this arrangement many years ago. Just different types of greens and grasses and the sweet bunnies burrowed in there.
I found this beautiful blue and white bowl for a song so got it for our fruit. My blue bunny wishes I would put some lettuce in there:)
MANY years ago I bought this Bunny planter for my Aunt Bunny with whom we lived. She was like another Mother to me, I adored her. It is probably over 50 years old by now, so I treasure it. Hard to believe it has survived so many moves. I placed a tiny ivy in it for now.

I found these faux chocolate bunnies at K Mart several years ago, 3 sizes and I got all 3. I am so glad I did, as I never saw them again.
Here is another one along with a faux chocolate bowl and eggs.
Over on the buffet area I placed my script bunnies.
And my 2 little sheep, bunny bowl and chick plate round out the vignette.
Isn't she cute in her Easter bonnet?
On top of the fridge is a large stone LOOKING bunny, he is actually light as a feather.
