Do you ever outsmart yourself? I do it all of the time. Take last year, for example. I shopped at Pier 1 after Easter, and was quite chuffed at coming away with a plethora of amazing things. When I packed them away for this year, so excited at the prospect of a truly smashing table, I told myself to be sure to remember where I had put everything, and creating a table setting would be a breeze. Huh. I wonder where I told myself that was. This year, all I could find were turkeys and pilgrims. I have no clue where I put the darling bunny basket, or the matching bunnies, the bunny ear napkin rings, or egg cups, or rabbit plates, or anything else. Nothing. Nada.
So, it was quite a scramble to make use of what I had to come up with something even remotely seasonal. What this proves, of course, is that if I can create an Easter table from nothing, so can you. So get started!
Yes, this is a centerpiece that I use a lot, but that just goes to show how versatile a thing like this is.
The bunny tins I purchased years ago with the idea of filling them with grass, eggs, peeps, and chocolate bunnies, and putting them at each place setting. Then…I lost them. Amazingly I did find them this year, but only three, so they will just have to content themselves with peeking out between the spring grasses.
I went crazy over these cute little cages at Michael’s. I can picture using them all summer with nests and eggs, baby birds, and butterflies. I couldn’t resist pressing them into service here with peeps inside.
As you know, I’m madly in love with these black polka dot plates. You’ve seen them here and here. I wasn’t sure whether I liked them with this setting, so went with the Lotus plates.
The napkin fold is a cinch. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch has a great tutorial here.
