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!
