Little Peter Rabbit was my inspiration for this years Easter table scape. He'd been outside in the back yard for awhile and now it was time to bring him in!
I filled his basket full of lovey roses from my garden and some floral carrots. Plus I added a birdsnest filled with eggs and a little yellow ceramic bird I got at Michaels.
I began by making an "easy peasy" pink salmon print table runner out of cloth napkins I found at Home Goods. I just sewed them together and added a bit of rick rack.
I used my "go to" gold chargers and added my china by Laura Ashley. ( Got them at Ross years ago and still love them!) The floral print napkins were purchased at Home Goods and the clip silk Peony flowers were on sale at Joanns. I bought colors in Coral, Mint, green and white. Very soft and pretty.
Saw this darling paper carrot idea on Pinterest. Rolled the paper into a cone, sewed the ends on my sewing machine, added some green ribbon looped at the top and then filled with candy and nuts! Cute little favor idea and fun to use as name place cards.
Found this idea on Pinterest also. If you are not on Pinterest "You just gotta come join us!! So many wonderful and awesome ideas!! Use baby carrots poked on the top with a wooden skewer and then insert a tiny sprig of parsley. (Mine was even from my herb garden! I was so jazzed!!) Place them inside a little cup or basket with your favorite dip or dressing in the bottom. Is that the cutest or what??
Turned out to be a fun table, fun family and a fun day!! HAPPY EASTER and HAPPY SPRING!!
