Welcome to the 285th Tablescape Thursday!
Yesterday I shared a Pottery Barn inspired potting table I built for my deck, an area where each year I do a lot of container gardening for summer. This was the inspiration table, the Abbott Island Buffet/Potting Table.
This was the version I created for around $1,050 less than the inspiration table. 🙂
One of the neat things about this table is that it can also be used as a server for outdoor parties as shown in this picture from Pottery Barn online. So, last night…
…I had some fun creating a little spring dessert buffet using things I already had. Daffodils and bunnies always say, springtime! The center dragonfly hook made a great hanger for an egg wreath in spring shades of green, yellow and pale pink.
I didn’t have time to do any baking since this was a last minute idea, so I made a quick run to the market in search of cupcakes. I lucked out and found some dressed in the colors of daffodils, perfect for this spring themed setting.
Everything in this setting has been used in previous table settings here at BNOTP except for the green and white polka dot glasses. Those were a find from the dollar store a year or two ago. Wish I could Photoshop in a lush green backdrop for this tablescape instead of white, unfinished basement walls. Use your imagination and imagine this table against a backdrop of trees or beautiful greenery. I’m looking forward to putting this table on the deck where it belongs real soon.
The white bunnies have made several appearances in previous table settings including an Easter table (Spring Easter Tablescape with a Wisteria Centerpiece) and an Alice in Wonderland tablescape.
Does this put you in the mood for spring?
If spring is still a long ways off where you live, this table setting was created for you! Bringing a little springtime your way!
I’ve used the floral beverage server in other tablescapes like this one: Lemonade on the Porch
Bunny cupcake stands work well with our spring table setting. You may remember them from this previous tablescape: Easter Spring Tablescape with a Tulip Centerpiece
A bunny cake plate covered with a garden cloche, gives a nod to the other purpose for which this table was built.
Looking forward to the beautiful tablescapes linked for this week’s Tablescape Thursday!

(Yep, that really happens, unfortunately.)
If you would like to use the Tablescape Thursday logo button in your post, just copy and paste it to your computer and upload it to your post as you would any photo.
Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
