Let's Dish ~ Easter

This table was inspired by these guys!
I found these rabbits at a thrift store a few years ago (.80 each) and fell in love with them.  I think they are perfect for a simple Easter table!
Lots of pink this year!
 I started with a dusty rose colored Fiesta plate, added a blue plate and then a cute pink polka dot salad plate.
A small milk glass bowl holds a pink plastic egg that will hold some Easter candy as a treat!
The napkins are the newest additions to my stash and were .25 ea at a thrift shop
I used my sweet little rabbit napkin rings
also .25 cents each bought at yard sales
The plate stack picks up the colors of the napkins
Centered on a pale pink place mat with white flat ware this place setting is ready for the food!
I love these wine flutes....I have found two at different thrift shops for under $1 each
When something is this pretty I will sometimes buy it when I only see one and this time I am so glad I did as I found a 2nd flute!

** Edited to add that the flutes are from Pierrier-Jouet Fleur de Champagne and come in special sets with their champagne....Thanks to Marlis for the information** 
The hot pink placemat was .99 at Bed, Bath & Beyond...I added some faux flowers to a milkglass vase and voila....a center piece!
We will be having Ham, cheesy potatoes and green beans on Sunday.  I want something yummy for dessert but haven't decided what yet!
I love pink and blue together
Wishing you a wonderful Easter!

Looks fabulous. Can I come? I am all by lonesome for Easter this year. Hubby is golfing for the week , my oldest and her family is living in Alberta now and my youngest daughter is visiting with her this year. I'm sure I could squeeze myself at the table. I will bring a coconut cake!
Happy Easter.

Looks nice, Linda. I think your bunnies are from the same family that my wooden one is from that I posted yesterday. They are really nice. Cute bunny napkin rings, too.

Pink is always good with me! Yum, your dinner sounds delicious. I don't know what dessert will be either--maybe angel food cake. Happy Easter. Linda

Hi Linda! I thought that your flowers were real! Must be because of the Milk Glass vase!
Will have the same thing on Easter and I am thinking of making a delicious lemon pie with some fresh blueberry! Hugs!

Love your fun table Linda! Can't believe the great price on the rabbits-enjoy! Happy Easter:@)

Jacqueline said...

Dinner sounds delicious Linda! I love your pinks and the big pink plastic eggs will be such a hit filled with candy. I haven't seen any like those and think they are so perfect! Your new napkins are just incredible. I am always so amazed at the thrift store finds you ladies get. We just never get anything great around here! The rabbits were another great find and how wonderful to find the glasses at two different stops! Have a blessed Easter.

Dragonfly Treasure said...

What a beautiful table!! It jsut screams Spring/Easter. Maybe someday we'll be able to have a sit down dinner instead of a buffett...my home is so small, but maybe someday. I would love to dress a table like yours.
Wishing you and yours a Happy Easter!

I love your sweet bunnies! And I see the cute napkins that look like my tablecloth! It's so much fun to have friends that love the same things! Enjoy your holiday weekend! ♥

Ames said...

How cute! I have been looking for bunny's and finally found another one for 75 cents.

My mother had the same bowls only they were amber.

We are having Ham, green beans, deviled eggs, cresent rolls, and what ever side dish my daughter cooks in addition to a pineapple upside down cake. I have always made a coconut bunny cake and found out last year that my grandsons don't like coconut cake. Well geez, now they tell me! LOL~Ames

Pattispress said...

The pastels are wonderful and so nice with the bunny centerpiece. I'm having the same menu and we are having angel food cake for dessert. Happy Easter to you.
