Woodland Bunny Spring Table

Happy Easter to everyone! It is going to be a wonderful weekend.
Our family will be together...all the little nieces and nephews...Easter egg hunt here we come.
 I decided to do something a little neutral in the dining room for the next few days. I have done a lot of pink and now I need a little calm and a soothing feel. Virtually everything has been]
found at Goodwill over time.
 The placemats, candle holders, napkin rings, cabbage plates, dishes....you name it...I found it at Goodwill. I did make the
tablerunner...and in past posts I have shown you how
I made raggy roses out of fabric...well...
 I used the same idea but I layered different shades of green to make
it look like a leafy cabbage. I was happy with 
the end result.
 The more you wash it and put it in the dryer the more the edges curl up to give you the look you want.

 This is a happy season...all things are made new.
I hope your weekend is blessed in every

Hi Debbie! Oh my gosh, I didn't think this would let me comment! I've had trouble before, but I'm glad everything's fixed then! Love your beautiful Easter setting.. I keep thinking one of these days I'd love to get myself a set of those cabbage dishes! Love all the cute little bunnies scurrying around your table too!.. Have a great weekend, and Happy Easter to you and yours! ~tina

I'm your "linky neighbour on TT and noticed how similar our "link pictures" are - both similar bunnies! Then I come over to your place and see you too didn't want to do "pastels" and went with a similar colour scheme to mine. Your tablescape turned out lovely, the earthy tones are great. That "cabbage" is fantastic, can't believe you made it!
Hope you have a Blessed Easter!

Very pretty, Debbie, it's subdued and not an overly pastel Easter table. I love those cabbage dishes {Goodwill is fantastic} and your runner is pretty. Love your bunnies and candles, too! You always set a nice table!!

Wishing you a wonderful and blessed Easter!

I love the peaceful neutrals in this table. I still want to do some of your shaggy roses on something.

Oh my gosh...I just bought that same rabbit tureen at Goodwill yesterday. I was so excited to get it that I ran to the register and paid way too much for it! Isn't it amazing what people will give away?!

And your tablescape is just perfect for Easter!
