Easter time is one of the most marvelous
times of the year when life returns and
flowers bloom and we celebrate
Today's table celebrates Easter in
shades of purple and pink with the
most adorable bunny dishes that I got
this year at a Pottery Barn outlet in Texas.
I knew when I saw them that I had to make
them the star of an Easter table with the
two naughty bunnies trying to climb up
and snitch the cake!
Could they be any more adorable?
My dear friend Barb was having a birthday
so these fun tiered birthday cakes are what
our darling bunnies are trying to grab a bite of.
They are Cream Cheese Pound Cakes that I will
post the recipe for later.
I decided to fill the table with beautiful purples,
my favorite colors. I love all of the fun shapes
These beautiful iridescent flower plates I
purchased last year, but I only had four in
purple so I alternated them with pink ones.
I was going to use pink accents in
the centerpiece so these worked out well.
I have had these square purple plates for
over a year now and just happened to
have enough for this table of six.
What amazing color and I just love that edge.
They were a find at Home Goods.
Little butterfly napkin rings
fit our spring table.
You can see the square amethyst glass plates
that I turned on an angle and set them as a charger.
Some real grass with fresh cut flowers
tuck into a mercury glass urn for
the center of our table.
Real grass is so fun for a
spring table and you can
buy it at the grocery store.
These micro mini daffodils were given
to me last year and after they died
off I planted the bulbs outside. They
are just perfect tucked into the spring grass.
Chocolate and foil bunnies
sit on a pedestal for the center of the table.
The table is accented with fresh flowers.
They just can't wait for lunch!
And neither could I! It was so pretty.
The tiered cake pan was purchased at
Orson Gygi in Salt Lake City,
but here is a link for a similar one.
The Cream Cheese Pound Cake is
so buttery and yummy that I just piped
a little bit of frosting around all
Fresh flowers from the garden in
purple hues were used to garnish the cakes.
Just before lunch I added fresh raspberries
and a candle for each cake. It was fun
to have everyone blow out the candle
on their cakes.
What better lunch to prepared for
our little bunnies than
(I will post this recipe next week too.)
Happy birthday Barb!
Glad those little bunnies couldn't nibble
on the cakes.
