Spring Bunny Tablescape

Welcome to the blog!


I have been out and about this week in Lexington visiting with a friend who recently moved into a new to her stone cottage. We spent a day hitting several shops, and indulging in a piece of pecan pie from Ramseys on "pie day."  I am running a bit behind on my blog work...but sometimes a girl needs to get out and just run around. ha!

I have a fun tablescape for you today and lots o of pictures. Get comfortable and take a look at what I have been doing. 


I just love spring and bunnies...and I have been on a roll creating vignettes, centerpieces, and table settings. 



Last week I made a centerpiece using my new Hobby Lobby bunny table runner. I loved playing with the navy and darker greens as a spring palate. 

Normally we tend to think of pastel colors for our spring tables. Take a look and see what you think.



Here are my starting pieces. 


I could not decide whether to use green or blue placemats and tried overlapping them. 


I also tried a few different napkin folds.


I love the way this white napkin looks. I fluffed it out like a large bow!


To achieve the fluffed bow look is simple! Take a folded square napkin...and fold it as you would to make a paper fan. Pinch it in the middle. Slide the napkin ring to the center..and fluff open the ends. 



I added a couple of majolica bowls for a small salad, or jelly beans. :-)



I decided to go with a single placemat in the end.


Then I added some ivy, garden pots of grass, rattan balls, and a couple of birds nests to create a bit of a garden spot for my centerpiece bunnies. 


The large bunnies were provided by Oriental Trading and the small bunnies are from the Cracker Barrel while the birds nests are from TJ Maxx this year.  


              




I think this makes a fun casual luncheon table. 

I may try creating a more pastel table with this table runner and different accessories one day soon. 


What do you all think about using the darker colors for spring? 



Below is my bunny centerpiece.

  6. Sheila, the turquoise and white more than Spring's it up. What can be more classic---than our navy blue and white coats/dresses we wore on Easter Sunday as kid's. I remember even having navy blue patent leather shoes, just for Sundays. Your table reminded me of that, Grins, lovely.
