Spring Table Vignette

I needed to add a little greenery to the wood tones of the kitchen table, so I began by cutting a strip of display moss to fit in the center of the tabletop. Then I wrapped some ivy and miniature roses around the tops of the glass candleholders.


Using a white cake tray, I topped it with real, yes real, grass from a farmer’s field! It smells so good and fresh and spring-like.


Here is a close-up of the grass and some little itty-bitty speckled eggs that I mixed in throughout.


This little ceramic bunny seems to be looking up, as if for some sort of approval. Do you think he’s asking, “May I have a jelly bean?”


The other bunny, replete with finery around his collar, is checking out his brother. He probably would like to have a piece of candy, also.


This rusty, old bird statue seems to be pecking at the grass, looking for her eggs.


This is another view of the first bunny.


I cannot wait to delve into this stash of jelly beans on Easter Sunday. My Lenten sacrifice of not having chocolate or any other form of candy has been hard on this candy-aholic!

Hope your Easter Week is going well.

This is so sweet! So pretty! I love rabbits and this time of year, it is such a joy to see so many in decor AND running around outside! : )

I am so happy to see you back posting! I just got your email...sorry that you have been feelin' yucky! Hope it is better now...
I will call Friday if that is okay! Would next week work for us to meet up somewhere? My nephew's school is on break that week so I don't have to pick him up. That gives us more time...
I will call soon...

Hi Sue, Thanks for visiting my blog, yes I am brand new to all of this but have really enjoyed myself. One of my good friends encouraged me to start a blog, I'm still learning, but so far it has been a real joy to see everyones creative ideas. I love your sweet white bunnies and the tablescape with the grass runner. Thanks for your encouragement.
