Pink and Green Easter Table Two Ways

Are you like me and just love setting the
table for a party?  It definitely is one of my
happy places.  

This table was set for my craft group.  We get
together once a month and craft together.
I feel so lucky to have been invited into
this group.  We were talking about it and it
all started a few years ago at Christmas time
when my friend Laura called and said that
some of them were doing a Christmas home
tour that night, and did I want to come. 

Of course I did!!

But was I also willing to let them come visit
my home.  Well, I had spent the whole day baking
for a church dinner and the counter was a mess,
and the ward dinner started in half an hour, but
hubby pulled through and helped me spiff up
the kitchen and I was able to do both the
ward dinner and the home tour.  That was the
start of our craft group.

Since Easter is this week and we were working
on an Easter craft, I decided to set an Easter table.

Normally I would do fresh flowers to bring
in spring, but I had just purchased these beautiful
silk peonies, so they became the centerpiece, sitting
on a grass runner.

These adorable pink and green dotted bunny plates
were purchased several years ago from Home Goods.
Since I was in junior high, pink and green have been
one of my favorite color combinations for spring.

I sat them on my favorite white wood chargers
from Pier 1.

We were having a fondue dinner so I had
two color coded fondue forks for each person
and a brass basket for scooping out things that
don't skewer that well.

The little white rabbits were a favor for
everyone.  I added the moss green wire
and some flowers.  

A little bunny tag was
used for place cards and two kinds of
flowers and a little hot glue and I
had pretty matching napkin rings.  
I only had four of each napkin and there
are eight of us, so I alternated them.

 These pretty pink goblets were purhased
from Pier 1 a couple of years ago.

The final touch for the table was using
my chiavari chairs and covering them with
curly willow chair covers in blush.  I used these
for our Christmas table and they add such a beautiful
touch.  They are from CV Linens and very

I had used the same plates and goblets
for a table in my dining room with a bunny fur

I used sterling silver flatware for this fancier
table, and the bunnies were nestled in the fur runner.

This glittering bunny was from Pier 1 last year
and was featured atop a gold embellished marble
cake pedestal.  The table featured three of these.

Our fondue dinner consisted of three courses.
The appetizer course was a Southwest Cheese
and an Italian Pizza Cheese.  The main course
was chicken, steak, shrimp and potstickers cooked
in oil.  The final course was chocolate and caramel
fondue with fruit, brownies and cookies for dipping.

It all finished with creating our Grandin Road
copycat Easter Eggs.  Brenda spent hours figuring
out how to create the harlequin pattern and trace
it on for us.

These were mine.  I painted my butterfly egg
pink and added glittered dots.

Brenda had prepped the eggs by painting them
white, then drawing on the pattern.  The eggs
were from Hobby Lobby.

Karen decided to leave her eggs the original color
from Hobby Lobby and she painted on Mod Podge
and glittered them with Martha Stewart Glitter

It was a fabulous evening filled with fun, food,
crafting and lots of fun conversation.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter.

I will be posting this with


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. Wow! Beautiful tables!! Love your bunny from Pier 1 (I have the matching topiary!) I want to join your craft group!! Wish I were close by! Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

    1. My friend found a matching tall bunny with a lantern and snagged it for me! Definitely fun to have personal shoppers! Ha ha!

  2. Everything is just breathtaking and festive! Happy Easter to you! Leticia

    1. Thanks Leticia. Hoping for good weather so we can enjoy our Easter Egg Hunt!

  3. Wow, Jacqueline, your table setting is gorgeous. What darling pretties on your party tables. Those chairs are gorgeous with the dressy cover and I love the china and the grass runner. All the detail touches are so sweet. I'm sure your evening was fun and what a treat for your guests. Ditto Patti, I want to join the craft group..........

    1. I sure feel lucky they invited me along! I told them I usually craft with food and decorating, so it is fun to make things.

  4. This is all so gorgeous Jacqueline, I always feel like a fairy princess when I visit your home! I love everything! The Grandin Road eggs caught my eye too, and you all have done a beautiful job recreating them!! I am crazy about your peonies, they look so real, and I love the way you styled them in the box. I wish you and your family a very happy Easter!

    1. Thanks Jenna, The peonies are on Amazon - Duovlo Fake Flowers Vintage Artificial Peony in light pink.

  5. I had a feeling this might be a beautiful Easter-themed tablescape, but wow! ALl the food too! You really took it to the nines with all the gorgeous spring touches. I love the pink and green, and both runners, as well as the Grandin Road harlequin eggs. What a fabulously festive atmosphere for your guests.
    Happy Easter, my friend, to you and your family.

    1. Thanks so much Rita! We will be reworking the tables for the family on Sunday. It makes it nice to already have a plan - just rearranging some to fit 20!

  6. Wow!! Gorgeous!!! What a beautiful way to spend time with your friends- being creative in such a lovely atmosphere! Both tables are wonderful, so many details. I love your egg projects. Happy Easter!!

    1. I hope you have a wonderful Easter too Ann! It always seems like I want to do so much but with Spring Break right about the same time I never get as much accomplished as I wanted to.

  7. Always out of a movie.Truly.Happy Easter to you and all of yours:)

    1. Oh everything you do is magical too! Such a lucky family to have you. Have a lovely Easter with everyone.

  8. Jacqueline.. you need to send these pics to a magazine. Your decor is positively stunning. Have a wonderful Easter!

    1. Ahh, you are too sweet! I sure have fun with it.

  9. Yes, I agree, these should be submitted to a magazine. Perfectly beautiful and while I absolutely love a pretty table, its a rarity for me to create one much any more. But, I'd love to come and sit at this one. Abundant Easter blessings to you and yours!

    1. I think I enjoy doing the table more than the food these days! I just have a song in my heart while I am gathering things for the table. Good thing hubby supports it! Have a wonderful Easter Lea.

  10. Your table is beautiful. I love pink and green together. The chair covers are so elegant. Happy Easter!

    1. Thanks so much! The chair covers were kind of an afterthought. I was going to decorate the backs of the chairs with ribbons and silk flowers, but then I remembered I had bought them for our Christmas tables. Glad I thought of them.

  11. This is so gorgeous. Pink and green are so lovely together. What a sweet event for your craft ladies. The fondue is such a fun idea, from cheeses, different meats and fruit and brownies for dessert. It makes us all want to join your fun group. Love every detail. I am swooning over your Grandin Road copycat eggs. Beautifully presented my soul sister.

    1. Haha - yes we are! If we lived closer, we could share our store of goodies!

  12. Good googly goo In the morning!!! How you found the wherewithal to have folks over to your place at the drop of a hat I will never know!!! I’d be a nervous wreck! I KNOW Ramon could never get any part of the house, let alone the KITCHEN, looking company ready!! That Neanderthal child has NO concept of what “clean”, “organized”, or “pretty” means!!! He’d just reach in a drawer, throw a doily over it, and say, “Man, I do good work!” He does housework about as well as I could do suturing somebody. I think we’ll just stick to our respective jobs!!! YOU, on the other hand, are as your email handle suggests: LUCKY!!! I have 14 ballroom chairs and have thought long and hard about investing in the same number (or more!) of chiavaris. They’re beautiful on their own, but the fabulous slips they have available for them out there now...just gorgeous!!! I’ve not had fondue in years! I love it, but just haven’t pursued it. You made it look so pretty and appetizing!!! Beautiful post! Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Definitely invest in the chairs! I am planning on doing a post on them! I love them because of what a narrow profile they have so you can seat more and because they are lightweight and stack. I have them in child size too!

  13. So much beautiful eye candy...I love all your table details from the bunnies, moss and fur runners to the pretty pink and green plates! I want to join your craft group, you girls have so much fun and eat so well too! Happy Easter :)

  14. So dainty and romantic! Lovely dishes!Hugs!

  15. So many pretty and shabby chic spring ideas! Thanks so much for linking up at The Spring and Easter Joys Link party!

  16. I'm so thankful that I got to enjoy this beautiful table, delicious meal, and fun craft first hand! You really are the hostess with the moistest Jackie. It all was fabulous!! Thanks for sharing with SYC and the Easter Joys link party.

  17. Hi Jackie, just hopping by to let you know that I will be featuring you at SYC today.

  18. Your food styling is drop-dead gorgeous! And the yummy pics in your sidebar are making me hungry for some sweets! You'll be one one my features tomorrow from the Spring and Easter Joys link party; thanks for linking up!
