Some Bunny is Excited for the Easter Table

Oh my Bunny Hop  it is a week away from Easter and I have not even shared a table setting yet.  I am sure it will not surprise you the table has been set since March 18th but I totally forgot to share. 2017 is a year for bunnies and pastels. How Easter-apro right?

Easter Mice salt and pepper shakers

Nana’s salt and pepper shakers are a cornerstone of my table settings.  It is funny growing up I never expected to achieve the fascination she did with “S&P” shakers but I did. My collection almosts rivals her’s at it’s peak.  This little cuties were a gift from my Nana before she passed.  She was starting to hand over her treasures so that we would appreciate and enjoy them while she was still around.

It’s been a year now and I miss her terribly but everytime I set my dining room I remember.  Truth be told I remember he more then just at those moments. The Dining Room set belonged to my grandparents and I was lucky enough to be the recipient.  Its funny two years ago I thought, hmmm maybe when Nana is no longer here I will get rid of this set and go for a modern look. As a result of Nana’s passing last year I do not want to part with the table, is that weird?  I know it is not supposed to be things we hold on to, it is the memories but the memories around this table…. well you can imagine. So for now my tables will be dedicated to nana and all of the family celebrations we all had together.

Last year’s table setting looked similar, I mean really same cloth but I have picked up a few new pieces.  Plus, I just realized I forgot to put out my new bunny butter dish so that’s an excuse for a whole new tablescape.


My addiction to chargers has not lessened.  Aren’t these pink chargers beautiful?  Only issue I could only get three, darn it.  I have searched every Micheals in Ottawa and there were only three left.  If you have a Micheal’s and they have a pink Charger please pick it up for me.  Please and thank you.

Bunny Theme

Bit of a Rabbit Theme this year, goes well with the bunny fold napkins I showed you last year.  I am going to create a Youtube video to walk you through so stay tuned. I also found these lovely cup and saucers intended to make cupcakes in.  The cups are the perfect accent to the table filled with candy or eggs. There is a new store in Ottawa the Tokyo Dollar Store and I found these rose dipping bowls. I just had to pick them up for a talescape.

    Your cups are also adorable! The chargers are interesting. I didn’t even know Michael’s carried those. Must look closer next time I am in.

    • Michaels has the best chargers, I find other stores carry boring but michaels always have the unique and fun ones. Every season they get new stock

    Your bunnies are adorable!
