Bunny Trail

The Easter table inspiration started with the little blue truck loaded with colorful Easter eggs.    Decorative trucks seem to be a very popular item in home decor these days.   I have a few red trucks that I use for Autumn and Christmas tables so I couldn't pass up this cute blue one.  A few weeks later I found the bunny trail dessert plates with a similar blue truck so the planning began.

I used a cake pedestal in the center of the table and added the blue truck, pink cabbage roses and a ceramic bunny I made many years ago. 

I used cotton wreaths on the back of each chair.  The ornamental cabbage flowers and triple vase holder are from Southern With Grace.  


The little blue truck was found at T.J.Maxx. 


I used two napkins and  bunny rings from HomeGoods.  The print napkin is from Pier One and the pink gingham is from HomeGoods and in store now. 


I've had these Faberge inspired napkin rings for years.  

The flatware is by Mimi Premium Collection and is in store now at HomeGoods.   I fell in love with the soft pink and knew it would go perfect with the Easter table and many other pink themed tables to come.

The plate stack starts with a soft yellow and white buffalo check table cloth found at HomeGoods.  I used a woven light blue placemat then a white dinner plate.  The blue and white buffalo check salad plates are next then a soft pink salad.  The top of the stack is the blue truck bunny trail dessert plates from HomeGoods. 


The small cabbage plates are from HomeGoods. 

I used  pink and light blue illuminated faceted glass hurricanes on the server.  The pussy willow candle rings and the pastel beaded egg candle rings.  All are from the Valerie Parr Hill Collection.  I placed a Lilly Pulitzer swaddle blanket from Pottery Barn around the hurricanes.  

I painted the little bunny on the top left.  My Mom made the bunny on the bottom left many years ago. 

I love this illuminated Easter house. 


The light blue egg was found at a Boca Raton thrift store several years ago.  I placed a strand of microlights inside to make it sparkle at night. 

I found the bunny sitting on an egg at HomeGoods.  It was solid white so I decided to add a little Chinoiserie design to it using Sharpies.

Wishing everyone a Blessed Easter!

The Masters

I always enjoy styling the Masters table.   I haven't played a round of golf in over 20 years, but I enjoy watching the tournament.   The Master traditions have been with me for many years.  Years ago as a corporate pilot I flew our board members down to play at Augusta National Golf Club.  Sadly I was not able to make it over to the course.   In those days it was "men only" so my fellow pilot and I enjoyed the surrounding beauty of Augusta in the Springtime. As I post the blog there is a massive storm front moving across the South just West of Birmingham, AL heading East. Hopefully the weather holds off and they are able to play the final round as scheduled.












The golf bag in the centerpiece is actually a telephone.  I placed it inside a pink dogwood wreath and inserted a few golf balls.  


I had to have a little Lilly Pulitzer on the table.  




I added green shredded paper to my Grandmother's small antique vases and inserted golf balls as place cards. 

I painted the coffee mugs a couple years ago.

The plate stack. 

The stack starts with a green and white buffalo check tablecloth.  I made the fabric golf themed charger plates covers.  The yellow dinner plates are in store now at HomeGOods.  The green and white plates are from Sur la Table a few years ago.   The red and white salad plate are a thrift store find.   I added the Masters decal. 

The server. 


I used a couple golf clubs, my old golf glove, tees and golf balls on the server.
