Bunny Dish Delight Tablescape

Let's Dish about my new bunny dishes!

Cuisine Kathleen has started a new blog party called 
where we can share anything about dishes.

I have to dish about these covered bunny bowls.
No, I shouldn't have stopped in at Home Goods
but I had half an hour to kill before I had to 
pick my daughter up and there on the ender was
a whole collection of aqua and pink and clear
covered bunny dishes.  That was one of those
heart stopping moments and of course I had
to swoop them up!

There were more aqua bunnies than pink and clear and just
when I was wishing for another pink bunny a dear lady
decided she was putting one back!  Thank you sweet lady.

Although I could have lived with just the aqua ones as they were
so cute, but I thought an aqua table with touches of pink 
would be even prettier.

They make the table just magical sitting atop their

You could use them for soup or salad or
fill them with Easter candy.

I folded some fun bunny ear napkins in aqua that I had 
previously made.  You can find the step by step instructions
HERE,  at Bonkers About Buttons,
but be sure you have square napkins to make it work.

Look at how cute it is on the plate stack by itself.
She even added a nose and whiskers!

While I have been jealously enjoying everyone's Spring blossoms
on their blogs, our flowering plum out front finally burst into 
fabulous color and fragrance.  We finally have a little color!

I filled a beautifully detailed
aqua pitcher with those delicate pink blossoms.  

I bought this crackle finish pitcher last year and was very
careful to make sure I brought it in quickly before winter as I had
left a pretty pink one out a little too long and the frost popped
the glaze off!

I love the wonderful twisted handle.

and the incredible detailing on both sides of the pitcher.

One of my cute Easter Bunny nutcrackers joins the center of the
table with a fun woven egg shaped basket that I have had for
over 20 years.  I had to pull a Cadbury egg out of the nutcracker's
jaw!  Wonder who put that in there.

The fragrance of the blossoms is wonderful.

The basket opens at the center.  You just don't find the beautiful
Easter baskets like you used to.

I layered aqua and cream starting with aqua woven placemats
topped with creamy white wooden chargers.  I purchased
the chargers at Pier 1 last year and noticed they have them
again this year if you missed getting them!  Then more
textured aqua and white plates.

Of all of my bubble glasses, I think these aqua ones are my

Yes, I am glad that I got both the aqua and pink
covered bunny dishes.  The table wouldn't be as pretty
without the touch of pink.

And I think they are glad to have a loving home. 

Just look at that contented face!

After we party at
I am also going to be taking these bunnies

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. I love this tablescape. I love the glass bunnies and the dishes are just beautiful.

  2. Such a pretty and springy table Jacqueline! The colors are great and your buds match perfectly! I can say that I'm a proud member of the Bunny Ear Napkin club, I did make them one year and they were fun-enjoy:@)

  3. *sigh* What is it about these colors that just make me happy? I love, love the new bunny dishes. One should really never go into HomeGoods...but it is one of my favorite things to do! I think I'm lucky that I only get to do it when we travel somewhere else!

  4. Your tablescapes are always gorgeous, and this one is no exception! Happy Easter!

  5. Oh my goodness....How I love these settings...I am doing a table setting in May for a Mother's day event. Of course, there will be a first prize winner for the best decorated table....Maybe, just maybe, I can come up with something that looks half as good as this..
    Love it...Wish you lived close by!

  6. (sigh) Your tablescapes always remind me of magical places that I might only get to visit in my dreams......another knock-it-out-of-the-park table. Love the stems in the pitcher. Happy Easter xo

  7. If Alice could set a table in Wonderland, this would be it. Fabulous!
