Lucky Winner - Pink and Green Table

I was the very excited winner of a beautiful centerpiece from a local establishment!!  I don't want to call it a florist because this place is way more than a floral shop.  It is one of the most creative, artistic places that a girl could go. . . now called Paper Twigs in Canton, Ohio.  So I created this Pink and Green Tablescape around my gorgeous centerpiece.
The owner, Laura, started her business as a premier paper and invitation destination called Paper Allure and has now branched out (no pun intended!) to include florals hence the name change to Paper Twigs.
Laura and her staff do beautiful custom work for just about any occasion.
Right now they are busy with wedding season. That is how I first came upon this beautiful little shop, they did my daughter's wedding invitations when we were looking for something very different from everything that was out there. If you want to see some gorgeous and unique invitations and florals - look them up at http://paperallure.com
I pulled out some my most feminine plates with the rose and lace pattern to use with this beautiful centerpiece. And of course, the pearl napkin rings for another delicate touch.
Sometimes it's fun to just pretty up your table for no real reason!

Just in Time for Easter!

Is the Easter Bunny visiting your home this weekend?  Well I have enough bunnies on my Easter Table this year, for some reason the bunnies spoke to me this year!
I think it started with these placemats that were calling my name in HomeGoods!
and the table just kind of fell in place around the placemats
I dug out my bunny napkin rings, after all if you own some bunny napkin rings - this is the weekend to use them!
I really wanted some little white Easter Baskets but I didn't want to go out and buy anything else.
so I made up these little bunny treat bags with some of my stash in my Craft Room
Even though I have been known to have a stash of chocolate - these bunny candies were not in my stash in my craft room!!   I bought them a couple days ago and have managed not to eat them before putting together this table!
We are actually having Easter Dinner at my mother's house, but I like to get my house in the mood since all of the kids will crash here Saturday. Although all of this will probably be moved a side for a family game night!  We love to play games when we are all back together again.
Wishing you and your family a blessed and joyous Easter!
