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 tablescape...
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.

Thank you so much for stopping by today...I hope y'all have a wonderful Easter and remember to Make it Southern...Make it Memorable.
I love everything about your table. Love the china, the chargers, everything! Your menu is wonderful and you are so right about the deviled egg plate. I have quite the collection. When I had my first apartment in college, my grandmother outfitted me with dishes, flatware, etc. and she made sure I had 2 deviled egg plates - one china and the other glass. I still have them and several others in various patterns now. Of course I have several travel containers now also. Great table and menu! Happy Easter! :D Jewel
Miss Janice, You are so inspiring! I can only believe such wonderful planning and such a lovely table comes from a beautiful heart. I even love the bunny as your center[iece. I remember once I had 4 large bunnies and bought a piece of glass to sit on them as my coffee table. Happy Easter!
How blessed your family is that you spend time & energy making this most important holiday so beautiful for them. You have thought lovingly of every last detail. I have been obsessed with toile since I was a teenager so this tablescape really was a delight for me. I must say, the tulips were the icing on the cake (frosting on the cupcake)! They are the perfect burst of color & joy to add just the right touch. LOVELY! Thank you for sharing. I wish you & yours a very Happy Easter!
What a beautiful tablescape, Miss Janice! Those toile bunny plates are perfect! And I love your menu...very Southern! Now I want some asparagus casserole! Everything looks so pretty...Debbie
Love your tablescape...setting the table for Easter dinner is one of my favorite things to do! Your menu sounds delicious (and very similar to mine) I find Easter to be one of the easiest holidays to entertain a house full of guests.
Miss Janice, this is gorgeous. I love the Bunny Toile china! It's all amazing inspiration!
Good morning, Miss Janice! Oh, my! I'd love to sit at your gorgeous Bunny Toile table! Everything is so sweet. I adore your toile dishes! I'm kinda coveting them! ;) Yum! The food all sounds and looks so delicious! You're really a wonderful hostess with the mostess!
Be a sweetie,

The perfect Easter table! Just gorgeous!
Oh Miss Janice -- how I wish I could sit at your lovely table and feel like a princess! You always have the most lovely arrangements - down to the smallest detail! I hope you don't mind all the notes I'm taking so I can copy you! So far, I do have that same ribbon you have tied around your napkins. Have a beautiful blessed Easter.
I love your blog and the love you give to your family and friends through so many details... I would love to make bows as beautiful as yours! Happy Easter, Miss Janice! :)
Janice, this looks lovely. We are planning a big Easter meal at our house and I am looking forward to it. It is sooo much fun. I love your tablesetting and plates. Just beautiful.
I simply love the way you've displayed everything on your buffet. Your toile dishes are devine! Have great week and a very Happy Easter.
Oh Miss Janice...I'm coming over for Easter Lunch...LOL :) Everything looks gorgeous as always! Hope you have a wonderful week! Nancy
Hi Miss Janice...This beautiful Easter table looks so fresh & springlike...The Bunny Toile china is so pretty & you have decorated the table to perfection...as always! It is a treat for the eyes to visit your blog! ;-) Bo

Very, very pretty. Love your deviled egg plate. Very happy tablescape!
Lovely as always! Such an inspiration! Love your toile china and those cupcakes look sooo yummy!
Your table is just gorgeous. I love the dishes, chargers and the ribbon on the napkins. Thanks for the recipe.
Happy Easter to you.
Those toile bunny plates are so pretty. Our Easter menu is similar and your deviled eggs almost like mine. I only have 1 deviled egg plate. Poor me!!!
Your tablescape is beautiful. Happy Easter!
Lovely tablescape. I adore toile and love that you were able to use it for your "Easter luncheon". I really enjoy hearing about Southern tradition from you. We do not make deviled eggs the same way and I have never heard of macaroni and cheese on Easter Sunday! Interesting & wonderful at once!
I wish you and your family a blessed Easter.
I can't wait for Easter! What a lovely setting:)
Oooh I love those hot pink chargers in that Lilly table picture in the righthand column! :)
Oh and the movie Metropolitan (not Manhattan as you wrote in my comments -- didn't want you to mix it up with the Woody Allen movie called Manhattan) is good...you'd love it! It's full of prep talk, etiquette talk and deb parties.
This is all so beautiful Miss Janice.
Love the adorable bunny and toile plates.
The cupcakes and deviled eggs sound delicious.
Have a wonderful week.
Love it, love it, love it!! See you Sunday ;-) xoxo
Oh my Miss Janice, you have really outdone yourself! Bunny toile indeed!
The table is just beautiful, we love your wired ribbon accents, and the tulips...? Stunning! The entire tablescape speaks elegantly to spring and Easter, renewal and recharging, it is simply outstanding!
Happy spring days to you Miss Janice,
Lovely, AGAIN! I wish I had one of those deviled eggs right now! ;)
Your Easter table is fantastic! What gorgeous dishes and I just love all of the tulips and bunnies.
I wish my Easter table could look this beautiful. I hope that you will join me and link your tea on my blog on Tuesdays to share with my readers.
Miss Janice...I think I just came up with my Easter Dinner menu...YOURS! Since we'll be at the farm I'll probably go with a little more rustic tablescape, perhaps with some pretty paper plates...am getting ready to go work on my Easter eggs right now.
What a beautiful Easter tablescape! I love bunnies and toile. Arthur Court is also a favorite of mine. I collect the magnolia pattern. Happy Easter!
Everything looks lovely. I love the bunny toile plates and all your dishes look great together. I really like your idea with the Easter grass on your buffet. It adds sparkle and makes you think Easter right away. So cute!
Adorable! My favourite part is the tiny pink cup and saucer that I spied! Really pretty! Have a lovely Easter!
Beautiful! I love the China and Charger Plates!
Hi Miss Janice !
I always enjoy it when you pop by my blog !! Thank you for the birthday wishes !
Looks like you've been busy as usual. What a gorgeous Easter tablescape....just the inspiration I needed ! With my busy life style I haven't been able to come up with a tablesape for Easter yet. Yours is delightful !
Off to the garden I go to fetch the garden bunny ! I'll wash it first LOL !
Cheers and Happy Easter !
Miss Janice, those chargers are just about the neatest thing I've seen! I've never seen any like that, and now I'm going to have to be looking for some. That menu holder is also such a great decorating tool. I've only seen that on your blog. You're going to have me running around everywhere, shopping for all of these treasures you have. Your decor looks beautiful and your food looks delicious. laurie
Yikes...your toile plates just took my breath away and now I'm pea green with envy! Lovely tablescape. :)Nancy

WELL! I am almost speechless! Not quite but almost! EVERYTHING was...amazing! OH to be able to do such a lovely decor in my home. What time and patience it must have taken to set everything up to looks so simply exquisite!!
Such talent and how lucky your family is to have you do this for them. Just beautiful!!
Gorgeous tablescape and fabulous menu. I'm with you on the deviled eggs. I've even had them passed at cocktail parties with various topping and they are always a hit. Southern girls just know how to rock in the kitchen with style.
Happy Easter and Happy Twirls
I love that table! It was hard to move on to the next picture! LOL
What a really lovely table and I love everything on your table, it is really nicely done.
Have A Great Table Scape Thursday

A really pretty table and a great menu -- I've eyed those plates forever and now that I see how they look on a table . . . hmmmm! Deviled eggs ARE an Easter tradition -- what else do you do with all those colored eggs?
Your attention to detail is exquisite! I loved the table with the pretty toile dishes (might have to get those). I loved your sideboard-so pretty!!!! Beautiful job!
I love anything toile but the bunnies are just very special. The charger plates really set off the whole table. Lovely.
