Welcome to the 340th Tablescape Thursday!
It’s been beautiful here, spring has arrived! The Redbud trees are through blooming and are pushing out leaves. The daffodils, forsythia and Bradford pears are blooming, too. I was so excited to see the Tardiva tree-form hydrangeas I planted in huge pots on the deck, survived the winter and are putting out new leaves. I love this time of year!
Since it was such a nice day, I put together a table on the porch this week.
I didn’t need to purchase anything new for this table setting, just worked with what I already had.
There was no time to bake, but some cupcakes jumped into my buggy on the last trip to the grocery store. I guess I’ll have no choice but to eat them. 😉
Mr. Bunny is back to help out once again with the centerpiece.
He’s made a number of appearances in the past, always carrying something in his basket. For St. Patrick’s Day he came bearing Shamrocks.
For a previous Easter Table Setting he brought us Debutante Camellias.
One summer he raided Mr. McGregor’s garden and almost got caught! He narrowly escaped with his basket overflowing with carrots, all freshly pulled of course, from Mr. McGregor’s garden. (Tablescape can be viewed here: Peter Rabbit Raids McGregor’s Garden)
And for Christmas he graced the table with a beautiful Poinsettia. Tablescape can be viewed here: Nature Themed Table Setting
Today he’s filling his role as the Easter Bunny with a basket overflowing with colorful Easter eggs. I should have tucked a little grass down inside his basket along with the eggs. Next time! He’s surrounded by an egg wreath that may look familiar.
It’s the same wreath previously seen hanging from the potting table last year when I created a little springtime dessert buffet.
The chargers are Spode found in Marshalls several years ago. The design is by Kim Parker and the pattern is Emma’s Garland.
The twig flatware is silverplate and is available here: Twig Flatware
I forgot to take a photo of the salad plate so I snagged this picture from a previous table setting. The bunny salad plates are from Pottery Barn and can be seen here: Easter Bunny Salad Plates.
Bunny cupcake stands are from Pottery Barn a few years back.
I had a little fun with the stemware. 🙂
There’s just barely a little green starting to appear on the trees. Won’t be long now!
Butterfly napkin rings are from Pier 1 a couple of years ago.
Happy Spring…hope you are starting to see some warmer days!
Bunny centerpiece was designed by Marjolein Bastin. She has an online website, just Google her name to find it. I purchased him in a store in Marietta, GA several years ago called The Magnolia Room. They also have an online website.

To get your permalink, click on your post name, then copy and paste the address showing in the address bar, into the “url” box when you link up. You’ll need to include a link in your post back to the party to link up and participate.
That’s so visitors to your blog will be able to find the party and the other Tablescape Thursday participants. Requiring a link back also prevents businesses from linking up to sell their products. (Yep, that really happens, unfortunately.)
Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
Please do not link up table settings that were just recently shared in the last few weeks for Tablescape Thursday.
