BUNNY LOVE ON EASTER SUNDAY

Do you find yourself preparing the same menu for certain occasions? On Easter Sunday, my family wants the same stuff year after year! That's okay 'cuz I like my traditional menu also:)

Today I'm joining the fabulous hostess Miss Marty over at AStrollThruLife for Tabletop Tuesday. My 'Bunny Trail to Easter' is coming to the end:(. Here's my Easter tablescape...the same as last year and the year before. I just love this china pattern 'cuz it goes so well with my 'Pastoral Sage'-covered dining chairs from Ethan Allen.

Bon Appetit! Here's my Easter Sunday menu, containing a lot of my family favs...

Monsieur Rabbit says, "It's Time Y'all!"



A little springtime embellishment to the table...

Little Majolica lovebirds...


These green moss charger plates are from a fabulous store in Collierville, Tennessee--The First Fruit Collection. Actually, I believe the 'Bunny Toile' plates, by J. Wilfred are also from the same store. Love these. Just love them!

This pattern could not be any cuter and is just perfect for Miss Janice!



Pink napkins with a springtime ribbon as napkin rings...placed in the proper position for an Informal Lunch...
Coordinating 'Bunny Toile' covered candy dishes with Jelly Belly beans...

Thank you for visiting with me today. Don't forget to hop over to Marty's for more Tabletop Pretties!

Have a blessed Easter:)

Gorgeous table. I love those chargerss! So tell me about your asparagus casserole. I am intrigued. Your menu sounds yummy. I am looking forward to my FILs cooking while we are down in FL. He is quite the gourmet and spoils us with fabulous meals when we are down there. I will keep my eye out for you when I am at the Gardens Mall. I would absolutely die if I saw you IRL! :)

Too cute as always! I'm in charge of deviled eggs for our family dinner this year. I'm going to add a little twist and use Paula Deen's Shrimp Stuffed Eggs recipe.Yum.

Mrs. G said...

Miss Janice your table looks beautiful. Love the bunny dishes and all your accessories. The menue looks delicious and now I am hungry for mac 'n cheese.
Any chance we can get a look at the fabric on your dining room chairs? It sounds like something I might be able to use. You and I seem to like a lot of the same goodies....
Happy Easter!!!

This table is so darling! I love your pretty Easter china and those wonderful placemats! Thank you for your sweet visit to my table this week -- I hope you have a wonderful Easter gathering around your festive table -- Hope you also had a wonderful trip.

Phyllis AROUND THE HOUSE said...

I love your beautiful beautiful dishes, oh my your table is just so pretty, love the wonderful look with the pretty green and the moss...I would love to ask a couple of questions if I may.. When using napkin rings I have always thought the points go toward the center away from you,(like you are saying) when dinner is finished the napkin would be placed on the table with the points facing toward yourself...but then I am confused why monogramed expensive napkins have the initials on the points facing yourself. I also noticed so many bloggers that seem to be in the know put napkin in napkin ring with points facing themselves...I would love to know what resource you use so I know for sure, (of course Miss Janice I do believe you are correct), just want to double check, thanks so much for your expert information...

I am really wanting some of those chargers. Those are so great! Your table looks so pretty, and I love
Monsieur Rabbit! I have the brown toile bunny plates, and I just love them. laurie

Miss Janice ~ you have OUTDONE yourself! Everything looks so elegant, festive, and pretty. You sure know how to set a table and entertain. I always enjoy seeing the vignettes your create! Superb job!

~Have a lovely Easter~

Liz

P.S. Thank you for the suggestions on my kitchen cabinets. I really appreciate it! *smile*

Angie said...

Oh, everything is so cute!!! I only have one of those bunny toile plates so I am jealous of all of yours. I clicked over to the site of that store (First Fruits I think you said) and I about flipped out. Love everything and want my house to look like the pics they showed. I would love to see that store in person. I know it is FABULOUS!

The Classic Preppy said...

This is adorable! So glad another "southern preppy" has moved to South Florida. Miss Janice, I think you win the "Cute Preppy of the Year" award....You really do things with elegance and style. Thrilled to see on your blog that you like my hometown so much! Delray Beach was a wonderful place to grow up....
