A Gathering of Bunnies and Flower Pots




I don't buy many strictly seasonal things for my table because I find it too limiting, but I found these darling bunny plates at Home Goods just too darling to pass up! I got a set of four, and will also use them throughout the year for tea parties with the little girls. The script and postal motif got me carried away!



Around this time before the holiday I have my radar out for table ideas and start gathering things up in one place until everything gels for me.




This time I knew it would include the clay pot napkin rings from a past season at Pottery Barn (a nod to Peter Rabbit), and the ruffled napkins to go with them (also PB). I don't have the right flowers to tuck in at the moment, but a daisy or baby's breath would be sweet. Although I do love the look of something leafy like rosemary, mint, or even this sprig of dried eucalyptus.



I also wanted to share this terrific pair of enamel pots I found thrifting that someone had cleverly decoupaged. Complete with saucers underneath!




I adore the bird and fruit motifs. They would be adorable on the table with little herb pots inside. I tried to include views from all sides. . . .







































I also got one large dinner plate to either serve from, or just display. The bunny faces in the opposite direction from the dessert/canape plates. (The plates are by Magenta, and I saw some on Ebay.)

















I also found a sweet Johnson Brothers teapot at HG with a vintage look. My other white one has gotten a lot of exposure on the blog! Haha! But I just love this one's curvy lines.








Pulling everything all together in one place beforehand also makes a pretty little Easter vignette while it's waiting to be put to use. Decoration enough for me!













How are all your ideas coming along?
 Busy week coming up!

Hope it's a good one for you!

Jacqueline

Hi, Jacqueline! Your bunny plate picture just popped up on my sidebar and I of course had to come right over to see them! Soooo cute! No wonder you couldn't leave them! And those flowerpots?? Perfect in every way! Your whole "accidental" vignette is precious. Can't wait to see what else you come up with! Happy decorating and happy Easter to you! ~Zuni

Jacqueline, everything is ADORABLE!!!! I love those enamel decoupaged pots! They are so dang cute!! And the bunny plates are so sweet. I love homegoods. Was in the other day and saw the most adorable large, greenish flower cart. didn't buy it because of the "where would I put it" dilemma, and of course, wish I had gone ahead and gotten it. Wish I could be there for your Easter tea or brunch or whatever! It'll be lovely,for sure!

Jacqueline,
love, love Home Goods! I have to drive about 45 mins to get one, wish it was a lot closer! My sister in CA has one about 5 mins from her house and it was amazing, got a lot of cute stuff while I was out there in November! The bunny dishes are adorable, and the pots are fabulous. I also love the napkin rings, gee, I guess I love it all! Beautiful table for Easter!

Jeanie said...

For a number of reasons -- most good, some slacking! -- I am woefully behind in Easter preparations. The egg tree is still in the basement and only a few bunnies have made it upstairs. Nor have the spring dishes. But seeing these bunny plates is making me a little crazy and you may have just contributed to the delinquency of a minor senior when I hit the road and see if our HG is carrying those bunny plates. They're the cutest things ever and I have such a spot in my heart for sweet rabbits. The bird motif works perfectly with it, and if I have time, I'll have to make some of those little napkin holders. Well, those may have to wait another year! Wonderful. You have me in the spirit!

I have no idea how I landed at your house this morning - I just get lost in blogland sometimes!
I love the rabbit plates - I wish Home Goods wasn't 2 hours away from me!
And, OMG, the little flower pot napkin rings are the cutest things ever.
Just signed up to follow you.

You found the pots and saucers at a thrift shop? Wow! They are so cute. Who would give them away? Lovely vignette.

Love love love love LOVE this post. Everything is awesome. Totally perfect.

So sorry I have been absent - life is crazy insanely busy. I do as well as I can in visiting and posting.

This is the 3rd time I have had to sign back up as a reader, too. Why does blogger keep kicking me off the roll with certain blogs, I wonder? It's maddening. Sorry about that.

Have a wonderful Easter. Hugs.

Jacqueline, I didn't see any of those adorable plates at our Home Goods, or they would have come home with me too. Bunnies dressed in clothes and a postal stamp are a winning combination in my mind. Of course I love the natural look to your table. You do it to perfection. I study your tables in hopes that I might pull together something this lovely.
A++++
Happy Easter!

Elaine Cariglio said...

I love your new plates and pots! ADORABLE!!! Great finds for this Easter & Spring! I tend not to buy seasonal treasures too. I find I can't afford to just use my treasures once a year. I use them often! The other thing, I tend not to want to over collect either. That means I have to have a place to store everything! I do get caught up in the hunt and love everything I see....I must be diligent and careful not to over buy.
I enjoyed your post and you keep me inspired! Thank you! Have a Happy Easter.
Blessings My Friend,

Jaqueline,
A d o r a b l e bunny plates, dear friend!!! Love, LOVE, L O V E the one larger plate facing in the opposite direction!!!
I purchased those same flower pot napkin holders at a Flea Market late in the Autumn and I'm thrilled to see that you've "weathered" yours!!! I'll be using mine in a Spring tablescape, soon!!!
Have a blessed Easter!!!
Fondly,
Pat

Love your cute bunny plates! I enjoy Home goods with all the great shopping, too. Your Johnson Brothers teapot is lovely for tea time. I luckily found a couple of Johnson Bros China sets at Christian thrift stores this week. Hope your Easter is wonderful!
