Let's take a look...The china is Bunny Toile, by J. Willfred and the teapot, sugar bowl and creamer is the Green Leaf pattern and also by J. Willfred. The green moss charger plates were purchased at one of my favorite stores in Collierville, Tennessee--The Fresh Fruit Collection.

Easter Sunday lunch place setting...
Bunny-fied centerpiece and menu...
Most Southerners celebrate Easter Sunday with an informal lunch, served family or plated-style at the dining room table. I will be serving my lunch at the dining room table, plated-style. (In family-style service, the dishes of food are placed on the table and passed around to each guest. In the plated-style service, the host/hostess places the food on the plates in the kitchen and serves each guest from the left-hand side, beginning with the guest of honor and continuing counterclockwise, serving him/herself last).
Macaroni and Cheese
Sweet Southern Iced Tea
Coconut Cupcakes, Coffee, and Tea
*The deviled eggs are a Paula Deen recipe for Traditional Southern Eggs:
(Makes 12 eggs)
6 large eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
Salt & pepper
Sweet gherkin pickles, sliced
Halve eggs lengthwise. Remove yolks and place in a small bowl. Mash yolks with a fork and stir in mayonnaise, pickled relish, and mustard. Add salt and pepper to taste. Fill egg whites evenly with yolk mixture. Garnish with paprika, pickles, and pimientos. Store covered in refrigerator.
Paula Deen's "Traditional Southern Deviled Eggs", served on my Arthur Court deviled egg tray. All Southern ladies have a fancy deviled egg plate...we wouldn't be caught dead without one. We have the de rigueure to-go deviled egg plates, as well! We just have to.
Dessert and tea will be served from the sideboard..."Coconut Cupcakes, Tea, and Tulips...
The party favors for Easter Sunday double as place cards. These are Martha Stewart cute little pink boxes, filled with green Easter grass and jelly beans (the good kind--from The Fresh Market).
Coconut cupcakes are another take-home gift placed on green shred inside a pink take-out box, adorned with a pink polka dot ribbon.
