Golden Bunny Easter Tablescape
I’ve been wowed and inspired by all the bunny tablescapes I’ve seen this Easter season. I especially love the Peter Rabbit and chocolate bunny tablescapes. I combined golden chocolate bunnies, regular chocolate bunnies, golden table elements, and the strawberries in Mr. McGregor’s garden to create a Golden Bunny Easter Tablescape. Of course I threw in some Easter eggs.
I started things off with my go-to tablecloth; a pink tablecloth I made from upholstery material several years ago. I like it because the standard rectangle tablecloths aren’t long enough on the ends to suit me. I bought a cute chenille bunny table runner that I can use on my piano or coffee table as well. I folded the ends of the table runner in toward the middle to make room on my table.
For my centerpiece, I used the Hand Painted Easter Egg Garden that I made a few weeks ago.
I placed several sprays of artificial strawberries on either side of the centerpiece. Golden Russel Stover chocolate bunnies stand guard on both sides of the Hand Painted Easter Egg Garden, just like Benjamin Bunny and Peter Rabbit.
The magnolia leaves are a beautiful yellow color this time of year in the South Carolina Lowcountry, and match the golden glow of the plates, chargers, and bunnies nicely. I put the magnolia leaves, along with faux eucalyptus, in some blue Ball Mason quart jars I bought from Walmart.
This will be the second time I’ve used the golden chargers I bought from Dollar Tree. They are topped with Sheffield Sierra Ironstone. I adore ironstone. It is lighter than stoneware, durable, and beautiful. It’s a sister pattern of my beloved Homer laughlin Castilian. Read How I “Won back” a Stolen Piece of My Childhood Through Homer Laughlin Dishes for the story of how I aquired that dish set. I found these Sheffield dishes at a thrift store. They were brand new, so their inclusion in the Easter tablescape will be the first chance for utensil marks to harm the ironstone’s beautiful patina.
Next, I placed some plain white napkins on top of the Sierra dinner plates.
Now, for my favorite part. I’ve never owned Easter plates before. This year, I bought 8 Spode Meadow Lane salad plates. There are 4 different bunny plates included in each set. Each plate has a different-colored pastel rim. I like buying thematic salad or dessert plates because that’s what you’re going to see first.
I have Pioneer Woman tumblers in light blue and yellow. Several of them were broken, so I bought a set in the newest pattern, Dazzling Dahlias, to coordinate with the rest. I love her colors and patterns.
I used Ferry Morse plant labels on top of my Juilliard silverware (I have Golden Juilliard and regular Juilliard) to continue the Mr. McGregor’s Garden theme on my Easter tablescape. I positioned personalized Easter egg place card printables from The Roof Top Post Co. UK in the plant label slots. Print yours here.
Each table setting was topped off with a Hershey’s solid chocolate bunny. We’ll probably share the Golden Russel Stover one’s later. I like to dip my chocolate bunnies in peanut butter! I hope you enjoyed my Golden Bunny Easter Tablescape!
