Hippity Hoppity Easter’s on it’s Way!

 

Hello and welcome to a brand new week. I love Monday’s!  Something about starting out fresh after the busy weekend.  Hard to believe that Easter will be here before we know it.

Whenever Easter falls in the month of March it seems a bit early to me.  There is still snow on the ground outside but I think I am going to plant some pots for my porch regardless.

I’ve pulled out my Spring calendar that I made a few years ago.  That was the year of the calendars.  Don’t ask me how many I made. Let’s just say I was seeing them in my sleep.  I still need to make an Easter magnet for Easter Day.

Spring fever is officially here. Today I am doing my annual tradition and planting containers of grass.

I thought I would show you my Easter table décor.

This pic was taken from the side so you could tell how it’s laid out.  Notice no candy in the purple bowl?  I have plenty in other bowls but I forgot that one.

I laid the drop cloth runner I made through the middle and then randomly scattered my large cabbage leaves.

My funeral basket with faux flowers is in the center of the table. I love my aqua crackled bunny.  He was a T.J. Maxx find a few years ago. I now have two frog flower holders.  I think they are just cute so I tossed one in.

My friend, Ann gave me this sweet cake stand for my birthday last July.  The little chick egg holders are vintage.  I love them!

My plate is called Bunny Toile.  Isn’t it sweet?

This cute plate is on the back side of the table.  It’s important to make the back side pretty too!

Little wreaths hang from the chair backs.

No dishes yet.  That will come Easter morn.

I was going to get out my Easter bin yesterday Jann but time got away from me. I'm thinking I'll get on it tomorrow after work :-) I love that toile bunny plate as well as the wreaths on the chairs! Have a wonderful week!

Old Time Cindy said...

That bunny plate is really cute. I guess I don't really decorate much when spring rolls around...I'm in the great outdoors and my garden doing my thing.
Farmhouse hugs,

That spring calender is really really NEAT, Jann!

You definately have Easter on its way for us today, thank you!

I cannot WAIT till it warms up around here.

The sun is brightly shining though, so it is a start - a brilliant blue bright gorgeous winter day here.

Please have a wonderful week my friend!! Hugs.

Love your Easter decor! And don't worry about not making contact during my recent Utah trip. My friend and I kept really busy skiing. But I liked SLC so much I'll be back! And when I return, you'll be the first to know. Maybe we can meet up during my next visit. :)

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

So cute Jann! You did such a cute job on this! I like the little chick egg holders on the green cake stand. I want to try blowing out some eggs and coloring them this year. I'm thinking about Easter but haven't taken any steps.

Jann,
Inspiring tablescape centerpiece for Easter, dear one! The green cake plate is splendid! How cute are those chicks under the cloche??? Too darn cute! I enjoyed seeing purple paired with the green and white...nicely done!
I'll be back to see the completed table with place settings, soon!
Fondly,
Pat

Love your Easter decor! I'm wanting to put mine out, but seems strange to put out Spring/Easter things with a winter storm warning for the next few days...4 to 8 inches of snow! Oh...Spring please hurry up and get here!!
hugs,
Cindy

Sarah said...

It all looks like spring. Love your little bunny plates. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me to get some Easter things out.

Kris said...

So pretty Jann! I have started too!!
: ) xo Kris

Maureen said...

I haven't started decorating for Easter yet but you sure have inspired me with this beautiful table! Love those egg cups!

Chenille Cottage said...

Hello Sweetie! Isn't this a wonderful time of year? I am in Salem right now and the daffodils and crocus are springing up everywhere. At home in Bend it's much like it is there in Alpine. No pretty bulbs popping through quite yet.
Your table arrangement is pure sweetness with your minty greens and little chicks. I agree that Easter seems too early this year. I remember the year my son, Tim was born it was on April 14...just 7 days after he was born.

When I get home from my sisters I look forward to working more on my 521 Lake Street Swap pretties. I went to The Quilted Forest in Salem today and gathered some darling ideas and a bit of fabric.
Thank you for stopping by..my little chick-a-dee! Your comments are always so dear to me.

Blessings, Jann.

It is hard to think of spring as of yet.
Cute decor!

lynn cockrell said...

Jann, your Easter table is so pretty. Everything about it is lovely. I think the bunny is especially pretty and those little chicks on the cake plate are just too cute and full of vintage charm. Love your drop-cloth table runner, too, and the cabbage leaves strewn about(for your bunny when he feels like munching). You did a wonderful job!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

I love the bunny plate and your spring calender is adorable!!! Easter, I still have my Valentines wreath on the door!!

Oh I hope your girl can make the ball...Remember it is going to go on for a week so you could show up fashionably late!
