Bunny Cottontails and Beautiful Florals: A Little Springtime Dish Shopping

Welcome to the 542nd Tablescape Thursday!

Yesterday I stopped by Pier 1 to see what new goodies they had in for spring. The first thing that caught my eye when I walked in the door was this fluffy pile of bunny ears and cottontails. lol

Bunny tails for decorating backs of chairs for Easter


I had to see what they were so I looked a bit closer. Ohhh, they’re little burlap wraps to go around the back of a chair. Sooo cute! Would love a set for my chairs on the porch! If you need some of these for your spring decor, you’ll find them here: Bunny Cottontails.

I was so happy to see they brought back the driftwood chargers I bought last year when I created a surprise tablescape for my daughter-in-law, son and grandsons.

Neutral colors for spring table


While visiting with them last summer, I put this summer/beach themed table together while they were away for a few hours.

The driftwood chargers worked great in this outdoor setting. See this table in full here: Summer Table.

Driftwood Chargers for Beach Themed Table 2


I liked the driftwood chargers so much, I ended up purchasing a set for myself before I left to head back home. Here’s how they looked last summer in a 4th of July table setting out on the porch. As you can see, they are quite versatile going from a beach/seaside themed table to a patriotic one. They are one of my favorite chargers and I’m sure you’ll be seeing them again this summer. (See this table in full here: Beach-Themed Table for the 4th of July.)

Red, White Blue for 4th of July Tablescape


Love the scalloped-edged gingham plates they paired the chargers with in this setting. If you prefer soft, subtle colors for your summer tables, this would be beautiful! Chargers are available here: Chargers. Gingham plates are available here: Gingham Plates.

Gingham Plates, neutral creams and browns


For the bird lovers…so cute! These are available here: Birdie Plates.

Bird-themed plates


They have so many cute patterns in for spring. This one is done in a very soft finish, not shiny like most dinnerware. Notice the yellow edged rim. I really like that, makes me think of sunshine.

Garden-themed dinnerware


If you don’t like bold colors but prefer a softer palette, this is a beautiful one for summer! You’ll find it available here: Spring Floral.

This beautiful setting caught my eye.

Blue and White Table Setting Design


Surprisingly these plates are melamine. Melamine has so dramatically improved over the years, I thought they were ceramic until I touched them.

Spring Dinnerware for Dining Outdoors, 2019


You’ll find this pattern in two different designs/sizes here: Dinner Plates and here: Floral Plates.

Floral Melamine Dinnerware for Spring


Another pretty summer pattern I saw during my visit…

Spring Dinnerware, 2019


These were my favorite from this visit. Just look at that bunny face! I think I will need 6 of these salad plates for a spring table this year. Sooo cute! You’ll find them available here: Bunny Plates.

As I was leaving the store, I saw this beautiful marble and wood serving board. I love it! Wouldn’t it be perfect in a kitchen with a mix of wood/butcher block countertops and a marble island? I may have to go back and buy this piece…it was so beautiful in person! You’ll find it here: Marble/Wood Server. There’s a heart-shaped version here: Heart Wood/Marble Server. I love them both but I think I like the round one best.

Wood and Marble Cutting Serving Board


I love these soft Peony dishes that are currently on sale…so pretty! You’ll find them on sale here: Peony Plates for Spring.

Pier 1 has all their napkins, table runners and table cloths on sale right now. The selection in my local store wasn’t the greatest. I found it’s much better online. Check out all the linen/napkins here: Linen Sale. I really like some of their spring table runners!

Happy Spring Shopping!

  1. Love to see new dish patterns and PB always has such pretty ones! I almost didn’t join today’s party because it wouldn’t accept me without changing privacy settings and then I had to sign in because of an inlinkz requirement. Too many hoops!

    • I’m trying the new, updated InLinkz but maybe I should switch back to the old one until he fixes those issues. I’ll let him know, Liz. Thanks.

    • Liz, I just heard back from Aris at InLinkz. He said that I need to continue using the new system because the old system is going away and the new one “will take over soon.” He said the next time you add your link to the party, your “history will be preserved” so it sounds like you won’t have to sign in next time. Let me know how it goes the next time you link up for Tablescape Thursday. I’ll continue to pass along any feedback to InLinkz.

  2. Ooooh, I love me a Pier 1 visit!! I just bought their peony napkin holders in coral…ended up using two in my BATHROOM to put around two wash cloths…well, it matched my accessory tray, that’s why… 🙂 franki

  3. LOVE, LOVE your selections, Susan and those bunny cotton tail chair wraps are the cutest! (As teaching my 8 year old Grand daughter how to sew, they might be a perfect project as well as have plenty of faux fur remnants and enough burlap for sure …. ☺.) Thanks so much again.
    P.S.: As we have had a very harsh winter every night around 6 o’clock we have a wild rabbit visiting us who all but knocks on our front door waiting to be fed. It is really quite amazing as I swear he must know how to tell time. He actually is brown like that on the plates so I may have to invest in some of them as well.

  4. You’re one of those amazing people who make something sophisticated look breezy! Beautiful!

  5. Susan, thank seriously for this post. I’ve been searching for this umbrella, can you please let me know from where (or is it whence) it came? Does it have lights well? I can alway channel my inner Susan McGiver to put lights on. Better yet, call my daughter to do it for me,
    Thanks Susan.

    • I purchase the umbrella in Pier One a couple of years ago. They call it there Pagoda umbrella. I also purchased one for me because I love the design and the colors so much. They had it for two or three years in a row but I don’t know if they will carry it this year. But this is the time to start watching as they get in their spring and summer outdoor furniture.

    • Kem, they have it in right now in this color/design: http://bit.ly/2DYF06O . If that’s not the color you would like, just wait a bit and maybe they’ll get more in. Hopefully, they’ll bring back the blue/green color. I’m obsessed with it! lol

  6. Okay, I am purging, but I am STILL so in love with dishware. Is it crazy to plan all my storage around dishes, lol?? I was in Pier 1 yesterday, and very proud of myself for walking in, picking up a quick online order I placed at home the day before, and walking out without so much as looking past my straight path to the counter and door! Yay me! But…..I did check out the links you out in here. Those driftwood chargers are really nice…..hmmm…..
    Thanks for taking me on the shopping trip I didn’t allow myself. 😉

  7. I shopped online at Williams-Sonoma this weekend and they have the most precious treats as well as dishes for Spring! Everything was gorgeous but a little too pricey.
    Susan, your family is so lucky to have you! What a nice surprise for your son and his wife!

  8. Susan, I just (mis)read: A Little Springtime Dish “Hopping”! Next I saw those cute and fluffy bunny ears and cottontails and thought: “Wow, this fits the topic perfectly!” LOL
    Love them! And those cute S&P birdies sitting on their nest! Oh, and those gingham plates! Also love their description! It’s so funny written! I’d just change it a little bit for me: Are they beautiful? Are they simple but yet elegant? Have you already fallen in love with them? Check, check, check! lol

  9. While you are talking to Inlinz, you might want to mention that I have no problem when using my desktop computer and Chrome browser. But, on an iPad with Safari just a frog image that says loading……

  10. Those chargers are so appropriate for many occasions, no wonder you couldn’t resist them. And what a delightful tablescape you did for your son and DiL. Say, are you adopting? (asking for a friend ;))

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
