Peeps and Jelly Bean Vases and Bunny Ear Napkins {Tablescape}

 Today I am revisiting my Peeps and Jelly Bean Vases and Bunny Ear Napkins

that I created last year for my Dinner Group party.

I had so much fun creating this tablescape and figuring out 

how to make bunny ears out of napkins.

An Easter or Spring Table with Jelly Bean & Peeps Centerpieces

An Easter or Spring Table with Jelly Bean Centerpieces was on my mind

to do for my dinner group this week.

Our dinner group consists of 4 couples and we each take a turn.

We meet 4 times a year and we have been doing this for almost 9 years.

It is my turn and I set the table today.

A Touch of Spring in the Dining Room

A touch of Spring in the dining room was on the agenda as my

first Spring project this year.

I had done a moss project this past summer and created another one

 that coordinated well with the items on the dining room table.

Spring Centerpiece in a Basket

I do not have a breakfast table.

We use our dining room table every day.

It is next to the kitchen and the perfect gathering place and work table.

I have learned that I would rather have a centerpiece on the table

that I can pick up and move with ease due to this:

This is where my granddaughter sets up her various little houses

and creates many rooms that many a designer would appreciate!

We also have dinner here every night.

You will notice these moss bunnies a.k.a Peter Rabbit and friends

went from the Great Room coffee table to the dining room. They are always on the move!

An old paper mache bunny joined Peter and his friends.

What I will miss about Spring is the wonderful tulips

but for now, I will enjoy them as much as I can and continue buying them

until they are no longer available.

Bunnies, potted tulips, flowers in a vintage ironstone creamer,

a lantern, and a vintage transferware lid fill the basket with lots of color,

texture and a little bit of whimsy.

I did not set my usual Easter tablescape this year.

We will be going to a great Inn for Easter Brunch and then home

for the traditional Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt.

The Spring Basket Centerpiece will remain on the table along with a very casual buffet

for those participating in the Egg Hunt, both children and adults too!

I wish you all a most beautiful weekend

and a most Joyous Easter!

Dreaming of Flowers and a Feature

For many of us, we had a break this weekend . . .

~ ~ a break from rain and cold.

However, it started again on Sunday . . rain and cold.

Today was beautiful with a cloudless Carolina blue sky . .

I can only dream of flowers that will come . . .

Like the ones in my back yard last Summer . .

Or the ones that were on my front porch in the Fall.

But for now, I have to enjoy these:

Great room flowers

Flowers from the grocery store . .

Tulip Arrangement

And flowers from a sister, “just because”….

And if you want to see some of the rooms these flowers are in . . .

Hop on over to Katherine’s Corner as she is featuring me today!

Have a wonderful day!!
