The Mama Bunny at Purple Chocolat Home
was busy baking and chocolate making so
for our family Easter Dinner
she cheated a little and kept the theme
she had used for the Easter Birthday Lunch
and modified it as she was setting the
table for 12.
(I don't blame her one bit as she was
hopping just as fast as she could to get
She didn't have 12 of either of the
purple dinner plates, so she alternated
a textured square one with a round ruffled one.
Mama Bunny also switched out the goblets to these
lighter amethyst ones, alternating the bubble
goblets with the Amethyst King's Crown.
The purple plates were topped with a
stack of textured white, deep purple glass
and a mercury glass salad plate.
These beautiful Amethyst King's Crown glasses
were a gift from her sister Jean.
The Ruby King's Crown
that her aunt owned were always the star of
Christmas dinner and when
none of this side of the family
inherited the ruby goblets,
she found some online and
gifted Jean and Joni with some.
(Yes, all three girls start
with J's - you can imagine the fun
their parents had
confusing their names!)
Later Jean found these amethyst goblets at an
antique store and gave them to her.
Mama Bunny had
never seen amethyst ones
before and just loves them.
She kept most of the centerpiece
which consisted of bunnies and eggs, but
added fresh flowers in purple and white.
She switched out
new grass in a smaller container
and chocolate Easter eggs took over the
darling bunny pedestals.
The pedestals moved from the plate stack
to surrounding the centerpiece.
Keeping the same purple tablecloth
and purple theme, the table was a
very easy switchover for a larger crowd
of little bunnies hopping everywhere!
She was pretty busy baking and creating
as you saw if you read the post on
new Easter Dinner Recipes
so having a quick switchover for
the table really helped.
Everyone loved having
Easter so late this year
making the lawn beautiful
for the annual
Easter Egg Hunt.
The flowers were just perfect.
The daffodils were just starting to
brown around the edges and now
just a few days later they are done.
A few eggs got tucked into the
flowers but not too many so
the little (and big) bunnies
wouldn't trample them.
All the bunnies are attempting to squint into the
sun before the hunt begins. Papa Bunny is
taking the photo.
Little bunnies are separated from the
big ones, as everyone wants in on the fun
and so no bunnies get trampled!
The little ones go first and then cheer on their
Just a little playful horsing around
before Mama Bunny says "GO!"
Such adorable little bunnies!
Those faces just cry out "KISS ME!"
Afterwards, they all returned into
the house to open their eggs.
This is little Jacquelyn bunny.
After we were all done and the empty
eggs were left in the middle of the coffee table,
she kept opening them and finding them
empty, she would say, "No" and trying
one after another, she kept saying, "No", "No", "No",
with each empty egg. It was darling!
One final surprise were these fun
confetti filled eggs that a niece convinced
Mama Bunny to buy in Texas.
You crack them on someone's
head. The bunnies were very surprised.
Messy but fun!
