Peter Cottontail Tablescape

It's been a busy week here at
Purple Chocolat Home
sewing and crafting for
Easter and this ruffled
round burlap tablecloth is
the star!  

I have been wanting to make one of these
for a long time and just got going on it
this week.  I will give a tutorial on it later.
I just love the look of it and it goes so well with - 

These adorable Peter Cottontail chair sashes

that I will also give you a tutorial on later.

and finally these darling bunny ear napkin
rings that I made, so you can see it has
been a busy and fun week!

This table brings Peter and friends right
out into the garden with the brown of the
burlap tablecloth.  Can I just say how much
I am in love with this, all ruffles and rustic
yet feminine?

The bunnies are playing in the garden with
the cabbage plates stacked on one another.

Pink and green is one of my favorite combinations.
The first dress I ever sewed in 7th grade was
pink and green for my Easter Dress.

A pretty pink cabbage bowl tops the stack.

It is a beautiful sunny day so these
bunnies really are outside enjoying the weather.

Pink and green is the color scheme,
hoping that soon the garden will be
showing pink and green.

 Both pink and green goblets
accent the table.

This stunning bunny casserole takes
center stage on our table today.

And he is surrounded by his friends.

We have had an extremely mild winter this year
and today was perfect to get outside and play.

What a fun week getting some long awaited
projects done to help decorate for Easter.  Look
for my tutorials on the 
Ruffled Round Burlap Tablecloth
Bunny Tail Chair Sashes
Bunny Ears Napkin Rings.
!I was inspired by Susan's tutorial
a few weeks ago on these napkin rings,
having seen them at Pier 1 and they were
fun and easy.)

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.
