Easter table for the Grand kidlets

This Easter, I'm doing a colorful
FUN table with the grands in mind.

Lots of bunnies surround
a cluster of fresh flowers on
the sunroom table.
The rabbit teapot was a gift from dear friends
who know I collect them.

I've had all the white bunnies for years.
However, the little cabbage creamer, S&P shakers &
the 3-leaf cabbage plate are new
this year from Tuesday Morning.

Won't you help me find the matching sugar bowl?
My TM was out of them.

I'm using the BL Gibson dishes
(what did I ever do before them?)
I've added a little pop of
polka-dot color with square salad plates.

I machine embroidered the yellow
waffle-weave napkins last year.

There is a R A I N B O W of colors on this table!

The flatware is American Harmony, by Oneida.

The white hyacinths are going
to be planted outside soon.
In the meantime, they smell

I loved the colorful look of the dotted paper
so I left it in place & just tucked them
down into my white asparagus cache pots.

As the sunroom darkens with
evening's approach, the
egg shaped votive candles
cast a soft glow.

The pink hydrangea will also be planted outside.
Its open-work cache pot is really a candle holder
that I found in a thrift shop for $2!

It is so perfect,
it almost doesn't look real
but I promise you, it is!

Hey...no nibbling on the centerpiece!!

I'm joining Susan's
beautiful blog

Thank you Susan, for hosting this fun
event every week.

Thank you for stopping by
The Gazebo House!
Have a Blessed Easter!



  1. What a fun table!! I like the colored stems on the glassware.

  2. Rett~~~

    Your table looks lovely and I bet the grandkids loved it!! I really like the cabbage plate, creamer and sugar and S & P shakers...all your new stuff!! And the cute bunny is precious of course. You are right, this is a very colorful table. I love it! :-)


  3. I know you will have very happy grandkids sitting around your Easter table, Rett. I love the spring colors and all your sweet bunnies. And your bunny napkins are perfect. You must have an amazing machine.

    Easter blessings to you and your family.

  4. Rett, this is an adorable table. I know it will definitely thrill the grands. I like that you left the polka dot paper on the hyacinths. I noticed it first thing before you even commented on it. I'll go check out Tuesday Morning tomorrow to see if they have your missing piece. Love the pastel stems and the sweet details on this table. It's such a happy setting!

  5. Gorgeous! I love all the spring colours and the bunnies. You'll have some happy little ones at your house on Easter Sunday.

  6. Not only is it a colorful table, it's a real happy table and will be even more so on Easter Sunday when your family can all enjoy it too! Have a blessed day, my friend!

  7. This is my favorite Easter table that I have seen!! It is so colorful and fun/beautiful and classy! You have a wonderful touch! Happy Easter!

  8. I want to go to your house for Easter. We are not doing anything special this year. No grands, or anybody, for that matter. With both of our moms in the nursing home this year, we just didn't have it in us to host Easter dinner. We usually have about 25 people for every holiday. Have a great time!!

  9. Everything is gorgeous but I swear that rabbit teapot takes the cake! I also love those napkins you embroidered...what a feat. Very impressive.

  10. Your Easter tablescape is so lively and fun! I love all the colors together and those beautiful dishes and stemware! Your grandchildren are definitely going to enjoy it.

  12. Oh your dining room is so beautiful, especailly with that sunshine shining through. Smiles, Marla

  13. Your table is awesomely cute! I am sure your grand kids will love it. Can't wait till mine are older and I can do a fun table if they come for a visit.

  14. Lucky kids to sit at that adorable table. Happy Easter.

  15. Your tablescape is beautiful and creative, as always. I love the fresh flowers, love the square salad plates and all of the bunnies. Your bunny napkins are beautifully made!!!

    I'm so glad you stopped by shortly after I posted the other day and let me know I had the month of the cloche party wrong. It's just a good thing I didn't have to put the year - I'm still using 2009 most of the time! laurie

  27. Thank you for sharing, Rett! And thank you for your comment on my tablescape last week. I was "off the grid" when you posted, enjoying a long weekend in the North Georgia mountains with my husband for our Anniversary. We have a Tuesday Morning store here, if I stop by soon I will check on the missing piece for you.

  28. Wow! Just so beautiful and springy! Your napkins are spectacular!

  29. Once again your first photo made me smile. After reading this sweet post I'm wondering if I can be one of your grandchildren? :-)
    Seriously, your grands are going to love this adorable table you have set for them. The napkins you made are darling and I love all of the cheerful colors on the table. I love those bubble glasses with the different colored stems.

    Happy Easter to you.

  30. Very cute table! I'm sure your grandchildren will love eating at such a festive and colorful table.

  39. Your lovely table will go far in creating lasting memories for your grandchildren. I can still remember going to each of my grandmothers' houses as a child. A beautiful gift to them. Please stop by if you have time. Happy Easter. -- Jane F.

  40. I just love this table, the flowers, the dishes, napkins!!! I adore the bunny teapot! Oh, I wish you would join me for Tea Time Tuesday with this post! I just adore everything! So so darling! Your Grandchildren are going to love it! For I do so much!

  41. Lively table for little ones indeed!!! Love all the vibrant colors and fun bunnies- Our tm does not have the sugar bowl- had to go to our's to look for my mom some cutwork napkins and looked for your bowl as well. hope you find it- really adorable. LIke that you use breakable items with the kids- good lesson for them to learn imo.

  42. Well, I just found the bunny creamer and it is the same as the one I saw at TM today. They had two of them, and they were only $7.95. I wish it had been the sugar bowl you needed.



Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I read them all & each one is so very special to me & I try really hard to return the visit!
