Tablescape Thursday!

Welcome everyone to Tablescape Thursday hosted by http://http//betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/

I am re-posting this from last year. I love love love the little napkins that look like Easter bunny ears!

I have to say I think of Tablescaping more than I should, when I shop I ask myself first...."What would this look like as a centerpiece?"...."Do I have napkins to match??" "Will this look hideous? Beautiful? Plain?"

I found this picket planter and rabbit at the thrift store...they both had to be spray painted..they were just unfinished. And I cannot take any credit for the cute napkins that look like bunny ears! I saw those on the cutest blog during a Tablescape Thursday....bless her heart her blog was adorable and I want to find it again! So if anyone knows let me know I want to give her 'credit'....
I made the tablecloth (just 3 yards of spring fabric, edged with a ruffle in a contrasting fabric) also the table runner was quick and easy. I love making table runners.
I wanted to sew a few more buttons on but my wrist got tired!

These are little kids spring bracelets I found in the dollar bin at "Joann's...I put them around the candles and I also used them as napkin rings.


It's hard to see but I have my little 'fake' chocolate bunny under the cheese dome! I noticed Martha Stewart has a recipe to make these fake little bunnies on her blog! I love it.


Saturday I will post how I made these sweet little Easter cupcakes!

Thanks so much for your visit!
Blessings,
Debbie

Thanks for the inspiration! I've been in a sewing mood, and need to make a table runner or two. That carrot cupcake is the cutest thing. I just saw orange M&Ms at the store. I think I could do that!!! Sally

Debbie, I'm so impressed that you made your darling runner! The bunny lying down inside the picket fence is soo cute! This whole table is wonderful! I know what you mean about eyeing things in a different way when out shopping.
:-) It's amazing all the different tablescapes we can create from everyday things...like the darling little stretchy bracelets for napkin rings and to decorate the candles! :-) Great TT! Susan

Your tables are just the best. Mine is always set also but more as a display, I haven't put actual plates around it in years. Too much stuff too little space! hahaha
I really enjoy your blog.

Hugs, Lisa

A sweet Easter table. Love those cupcakes. When my daughter was small it was always fun to do neat things with food -- mine was usually cutout cookies but those cupcakes are just adorable!

Deb, I love this cute table! You just gave me an idea for my children's table for Easter. Thank you so so much! The rabbit in the picket fence, the perfect centerpiece!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

I love how you make your own tablecloth & runner. I have purchased fabric to do this too, but so far haven't gotten out my sewing machine.

Your table looks very springy. I love how you used the girls bracelets as napkin rings & around the candles. I may have to try this as well. Thanks for the idea.

Melissa Miller said...

What a creative idea to use kid's bracelets for the napkin and candle rings.

I can't wait to find out more about your cupcakes. I can't sew a stitch so I am in awe of your table runner.

Debbie,
This is such a cute tablescape! I can totally relate with the thoughts about tablescaping when I am out. It's scary sometimes! I am going to have to try my hand at those cutely folded napkins. I couldn't figure out something cute with my napkins in my Easter tablescape, so this would work perfectly. I'm also going to check out Martha's for those choco bunnies. Thanks for the tip! Blessings!

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

This is just the most gorgeous table. I love the picket basket and bunny and the tablecloth and runner are just so pretty. You've put together such a pretty tablescape. I love all the attention to detail. So well done. Hugs, Marty

My goodness -- spring has sprung at your house, Debbie! I can't wait to see about those cupcakes. My kiddos would LOVE them.

I hope all's well and blooming in CA. We're down to mostly bare ground here ... with just a few snow mounds left to melt.

English Cottage in Georgia said...

Wow! You put alot of thought and effort into this table...AND it looks great! What fun this table would be for Easter dinner...would certainly create something a child would remember throughout his / her life. In fact, it does remind me of the Easter my new Aunt and Uncle came for Easter dinner. She had such wonderful decorations with her coconut cake.

Kathleen Ellis said...

Hi Debbie!
Your table is adorable...you are so handy with that needle and thread! I need to think of that more often! Those cupcakes are so cute, too...looking forward to seeing how you did them!
Happy April!
;-D
Oh...and those bracelets around the candles...ingenious!

Mary said...

Debbie you always have the cutest accessories for any season of theme! Every detail is so perfect; I would love to sit at your table and take it all in. How delightful!

My Cottage Charm said...

Hey Debbie, I adore you tablescape, so cute! I was actually stopping by to invite you to my Treasures and Trinkets Thursday blog party. It's a weekly event and thought you might like to link up something you love! I love your fake bunny, did you make him? (if you did, I'd like to know how) Hope you'll link up to my party, have a blessed day! :) Oh, I was reading about your mom and dad, they are so sweet...I'm sorry your dad is becoming forgetful. My husbands father was a minister for many years of his life and is starting to forget things and repeat himself...it's hard to watch, but God is faithful and will continue to lift us ALL up! :)
Thanks for being my follower and come join the linky fun at my place! :)

Hey Debbie

I don't think I remember this setting. Love the rabbit ears! Do you keep the table set all of the time? Or do you do it for an occasion and then snap a photo for future posts?

Big Hugs to you!
