Easter Table -Bunnies and Tulips

Bunnies and tulips are my two favorite signs of Easter!

So I decided to include both on my Easter Table. 
I made some Easter Baskets out of peat pots for each place setting.
I cut the rim off the peat pot and used it for the handle.
I attached the handle to the pot with a rivet.  It was real easy to just poke it through the handle and then through the side of the pot.  I filled the pot with some natural goodies like burlap, moss, twigs, berries, and of course some speckled eggs.
My little bunnies on the napkin rings are keeping a close eye on those baskets.
Those big bunnies look like they are eyeing my Tulips!!
I hope you all have a wonderful Blessed Easter.
Thanks for hopping on by!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.


  1. Your table is lovely, the little baskets are so cute and the layering of plates is soft and the big chocolate eggs....

  2. Your Easter table looks so fresh and fun. I love bunnies, and the peat pot baskets are adorable!

  3. Stunning table....the colors are so beautiful...I really like how you arranged everything...

  4. Hi, Ann! WHAT A GREAT IDEA with the peat pots!!! I don't see a Pinterest button on your page. Please let me know if you would be OK with me pinning this idea to my Pinterest board. I LOVE IT!!! I don't think I've ever bought a peat pot in my life, but I have seen them. NEVER would have thought of doing this!!! SO creative! I love the overall fresh look of your Easter table, and the little bunny napkin rings are so precious. Look at their little faces peeking up over the charger! They're not even tall enough to look over the plate! So cute!!! :-) The big bunnies look like sentries. I don't think I'd want to tangle with them! :-) Your reversible napkins are really pretty and work beautifully to extend the color of your plates. This is a beautiful table, Ann! Good work! I hope you and your family enjoy Easter weekend coming up!

  5. Please do!! Pin anything you like!! I am still trying to figure out how to put a pin button on my blog! I have saved some directions for it- but am chicken to try it in fear that I will lose my whole blog!! Not too tech savvy here! thanks Alycia!

  6. I was back looking at all the tablescapes and cannot believe I missed those napkin rings with the bunnies peeping over the table edge, those are the most unusual and sweetest ever, just had to let you know...

  7. Sweet little pots and I love your burlap flower wreath..."Hoppy" Easter! Thanks for stopping by with your comment on my tablescape :)

  8. Well you did it! you did it" as Dora would say LOL!!! A beautiful Easter table and no pastels!!! Very nice.

  9. Beautiful table...I love the rabbits and the peat pot baskets are adorable...I may steal this idea.

  10. Your Easter t'scape is so pretty! Great idea to use peat pots to make the baskets! And I like how you put natural items inside which go perfectly with the texture of the newly formed "basket". Your brown bunnies are posed in such an adorable way and I like how they are "smelling" the tulips. I also enjoyed seeing a table in almost all white/neutral tones - very soothing!


  11. I love the freshness and the colors of your entire setting. Thanks for the idea of the peat pots for the baskets, how very clever! I love ytour Easter post! Have a nice week.
