My 2016 calendar begins with dancing bunnies for January. But bunnies are never far from my heart. (You will want to know that the calender is "Animalia" from Papayaart.com.)
When I posted this image from my last post onto Facebook I got a flood of inquiries as to where to buy the plates. They are last year's design from Magenta that I found at Home Goods and seem to be no where to buy at present.
They really are an Easter design, but I knew when I bought them that they would never be saved only for that! Bunnies are forever!
I am more apt to do buffet style tables these days. So much more workable for small crowds in a small space. But bunny plates are perfect for a "Come over and we'll eat" kind of table like this one.
So January bunnies it is! I am not much of a cook, so a simple soup and sandwich affair is planned. But this adorable mustard/jam pot will help to elevate the humble menu. It was a gift from sweet friends some time ago, and will probably hold apricot jam for biscuits.
An old muffin tin is so versatile. Mine will serve up the biscuits. (Or warm cookies for dessert!)
Ironstone mugs will hold a savory soup and keep it nice and hot. Nothing more needed for an intimate cozy winter farmhouse style lunch.
And I wonder if you noticed the lettered napkins peeking out from between the plates? I have been thinking about when and how to use them for some time now.
They are one version from a company called Sir/Madam. Mine are letters of advice from famous writers like Dickens to their children. Another set has love letters. I have seen them various places. Recently at Anthropolgie.
They make a fun setting for your bookish friends or for a book club meeting.
I'm so glad that you stopped by!
I hope it's a beautiful day for you!
