Bunnies, Jelly Beans, and Easter Joy

Hello Dear Readers!

Happy Monday!

It’s been a while

and so many things have happened

in these past two weeks.

We are all moved in the Hickory Cottage

and it was truly a difficult move due to

COVID-19. We could only get professional movers

for 4 hours and there were no professional

house cleaners available either.

So with the help of some friends, who are

truly angels, we got the move done in 5 days!

On a brighter note, today is

Monday Morning Blooms and you will see

Bunnies, Jelly Beans and Easter Joy!

Easter Bunny Parade Tablescape and a Giveaway

Each year when I begin to decorate my home for Easter,

memories come flooding back of my childhood

and the many songs that my parents would sing.

One in particular is a song that my mom loved,

“The Easter Parade” by the songwriter Irving Berlin.

“In your Easter Bonnet, with all the thrills upon it,

you’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter Parade.”

My mom loved it when Judy Garland sang it.

I think I know every Judy Garland song there is!

Call me a sentimental sap!

So today, in honor of the Easter Parade song,

I present you with

The Easter Bunny Parade Tablescape and a Giveaway!

See details for the Giveaway below.

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.

One table with 5 different looks.

This table gets a makeover quite often . . .

So today I thought that I would present its many facelifts.

Springtime is the perfect time to style a table of tulips

Another tulip arrangement that was a “just because” gift from my sister . . .

~ ~ sparked this new vignette.

I love the Fall so that I can use great pumpkins, gourds and seasonal flowers . . .

~ ~ to create a one of my very favorite Seasonal Fall Vignettes.

Oh did I say that the Fall was one of my favorite times to decorate this table?

Let me correct this statement . . . Yes, I so love the Fall season . . .

~ ~ however, hands down a Christmas Table Vignette is my most favorite to create.

As who can resist placing the cute animals of winter on a table to enjoy.

Whether it be Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter . . .

~ ~ I love including silver into my table vignettes.

Silver and daisies . . . one of my favorite combinations of elegance and simplicity.

Combining the textures of metal and natural elements as seen in this Spring Table Vignette.

As I look at the past vignettes on this table . . .

~ ~ I am now thinking about creating a Fall tablescape.

I know…this is still July, but today, the temperature in my car said 71 degrees . . .

~ ~ with record breaking lows in many areas.

So, did your temps fall like ours did? . . . what a pleasant surprise.

Have a great day doing the things you love with the ones you love!
