Bunnies and Brookhollow


As I prepare for Easter I am reminded of all the blessings that we have in our lives.  It is often the simple things that bring the most joy.  There's so much to be thankful for.


I am happy to be able to share my Easter table with you. 


The bunnies add a bit of whimsy.  Warms the heart.


The colours of Spring are so uplifting.  I love the pale green and silver accent pieces.


A touch of  lavender in the handpainted stemware complements the floral design in the china.


Couldn't pass up an opportunity to bring out the daisy napkin rings


How about a closer look


Here's a full view of the centerpiece.  No fresh flowers in time for the photos but I will most definitely have some for Sunday's celebration.

Now for the particulars:
China - Noritake Brookhollow
Chargers - Home Goods
Flatware - Napoleon Bee (Nieman Marcus/Horchow)
Stemware - Thrifted
Bunny Teapot - Tuesday Morning
Napkin rings - Crate and Barrel
Napkins - Home Goods
Tablecloth - Williams Sonoma (e-bay)
Candleholders - Sterling (a gift)
Centerpiece - Tuesday Morning
Ceramic Bunnies - Tuesday Morning
Silver Bunnies - Pottery Barn (they're salt/pepper shakers)

A closeup of the tablecloth and a prayer.


Have a wonderful and blessed Easter.  Thanks so much for visiting with me today.

I'm joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

Popping over from Welcome Wagon at Cozy Little House to see your lovely blog. This tablesetting is so pretty. I love that delicate china pattern. Your centerpiece is really cute; I think I just might have to copy this idea!

The little ceramic bunnies on your table are adorable.

Hoping you have a very Happy Easter,
Tammy
