I finally have a tablescape to share for Tablescape Thursday!  It's one of my favorite ones that I've done.  I just love the little bunnies.

Easter Sunday after church we came home and relaxed with the Masters (did you see that 'Albatross' {AKA double birdie}?? Awesome!) We had a simple dinner of my mom's honey ham (it's so much better than the Honey Baked Ham you can buy), baked beans, deviled eggs, cole slaw and potato salad.  My sweet Dad joined us.  For dessert we had Easter candy!  My kids are all grown, but boy do we love Easter candy at my house!  Here is a look at our table this year.

It all started with this little dish of grass that I started way back in early March.  I've been using it in the Urn since I couldn't find the plants I wanted.  Luckily, I found them this weekend and the dish of grass was ready for it's new life.  

But first it needed a haircut!

 After the haircut it was ready for it's new purpose...
The centerpiece for my Easter table.

Mr. Rabbit was found at Tuesday Morning.  I fell in love with him immediately, but am kicking myself for not buying Mrs. Rabbit too!  I didn't like the fake clothes they had on her.  It wasn't until today that I realized I could have removed the fake clothes and she would have been fine!  

 These adorable little baby bunnies were found last year at Big Lots.  I think they are so cute.  I love the one that is scratching behind his ear (though you don't get a good look at him here).
 I sprinkled some jelly beans and Robin's Eggs around.
 I used some pretty colored and crinkled Easter grass around the base - it helped cover the plastic bag that I used to protect my tablecloth and table.

 I was wishing I had some pretty Spring colored dishes, but I don't.  I just used the blue plates that I found at TJ Max last year and the blue glassware that we seem to all have and love from The Dollar Store.

 I like this picture of the little Easter boxes filled with the treasured candy. I like this because there are 4 boxes, but I only have 3 children (grown, and actually one is a SIL, but I think of him as my son).  The 4th box is for my 86 year old Dad.  Last year he was so excited to have gotten an Easter basket that I had to make sure he got one this year!

We had a lovely dinner together, our first since Christmas Eve!  Unfortunately, our dear SIL had to work and missed the whole thing, but we saved him a plate to enjoy later.  

I hope you had a wonderful celebration of the resurrection of our Lord! Thanks for stopping by.  I am participating in Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.


  1. What a lovely table and to plan that grass -- WOW -- I'm impressed and I love what you did with it with the rabbits and eggs! And I think your blue and white fits perfectly (but, of course, I love blue and white and think it's perfect for ANY occasion!) It is a lovely table and sounds like you had a great Easter dinner!

  2. Great centerpiece! So cute!
    Love the beautiful dishes too!
    Thanks for sharing. And thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment;o)

    Happy day****

  3. Your table is so pretty, and I love the fact that you are honest about the "camouflage" to hide the plastic. We all do stuff like that! I like your plates, and they look a lot like some salad plates I have.

    The food sounds great, and I have certainly polished off some Easter candy this week myself!

  4. Hi Leslie,
    this is my first visit to your blog and I certainly enjoyed myself.
    I absolutely love your centerpc., what a clever idea, and all those bunnies were so cute, it was perfect,
    and your blue dishes looked great.
    Everything was lovely.

    Blessings and thanks for stopping by to see me too.


  5. For years, I’ve wanted to try and use grass seed in something like this tablescape. You just can’t beat that spring green! This looks just wonderful! I must try it next year!

  6. I'm all about the blue for Easter. It might possibly become my official Easter color, in fact. I love your table, and I love the deep blue of the stemware in particular. I know that folks got that at the Dollar Store, but I have looked and looked but ours never had it.

    And the centerpiece is perfect, too.

  7. Darling centerpiece. I need to remember to plant some grass in a dish. Great idea!

  8. Oh, adorable! Your grass looks lovely with all those bunnies! What a cute centrepiece, and it worked great with your pretty blue dishes.

  9. I love your adorable centerpiece. This is such a pretty Easter bunny table. How sweet that your Dad gets excited about his Easter basket. Charming.

  10. Cute, Cute, Cute! Thank you so much for your kind words and for sharing your beautiful Easter tablescape. I had never thought about using the grass for other holidays - but you are right - it would be perfect for many of them. I'll keep that in mind - thanks again and have a glorious weekend!

  11. The grass centerpiece is a touch of Easter brilliance! I love the way things are nestled in the grass!
    What a cute idea to use chinese take out containers for Easter baskets... brilliance strikes again! And it is soooo dear that your Father is excited and happy to get one! So cute and heart warming!

  12. How cute! Love the centerpiece and the blue and white dishes!

  13. Hello from Kansas!
    Enjoyed popping in and seeing your darling centerpiece. I love it!

    I will have to try my hand at growing some grass for bunnies next year. Your bunnies are cute as can be.

    So glad that you came by home haven and commented.

    God bless,

  14. Well that has to be the cutest and most creative centrepiece that I've seen! I love the use of the living grass!Good for you for planning ahead and planting the seeds! Love love this idea!
    Thanks for sharing!

  15. Hi Leslie: Well, you found me and so it goes..Great thing about blogging. I love your idea of the grass for the centerpiece. Your garden is beautiful and so much further along than mine here in northern California.The $$ Store with those blue glasses. Are you kidding? I've never seen ones that pretty in our $$store but will be on the lookout..Happy Weekend..Judy

  19. This is a BEAUTIFUL Easter table, Leslie! I, too, love my blue $ Store stems...they look great with your pretty blue & white plates.

    Your centerpiece is just wonderful!! I used some wheat grass for my tablescape today, but I bought it at the grocery store. next time, I'll try growing my own, like you did.

    Your gardens are just lovely, too.
    This was my first visit to your blog, but not my last.


  20. I love this , Leslie. Your centerpiece is fabulous. I would love to do that next year, but knowing me, I will forget to grow the grass! :)
