Easter Bunnies in the Garden Table - Spring and Easter Tablescape Hop 2022

 Welcome to my Easter Table!

I have bunnies running amuck in my garden! So I am sending in some undercover dogs to take care of my bunny issues!

I am joining the wonderful group of ladies I like to share tables with led by Rita of Panoply.

All of the links to their Spring and Easter Tables will be listed at the end of my post, I hope you have the time to take a peak at what they have created.


In the mean time we have to get that bunny population under control in my garden!
The tablecloth I picked up at HomeGoods about 2 months ago was the starting point for this table.  I actually had a hard time with this one because I don't usually use such a busy tablecloth.  So I felt like I need to keep my placesetting simple.

The green leafy charger were purchased several years ago on clearance at Kirklands - one of my best tablescaping purchases! All of the dishes, flatware and stemware are at least a few years old.  The grey plate is the most recent and I believe still available at Kirklands.
It seems that we have caught the big white bunny for our centerpiece!  But if you notice.  there are 4 more little grey rabbits on the loose.

No worries though, we are a dog family.  Our dog is a large half St. Bernard/half Golden Retriever that just had a toe removed because of a tumor - but that won't slow her down any. - Even if it does - we can call in backups.  Between my boys - we have 5 grandpups!!
These are just a few - and our Lucy with her little cast.  The top left is the newest at just a few months old - she is a Rhodesian Ridgeback.  Top right, with my youngest son - is their Labradoodle.  The bottom right is the biggest puppy - at about 8 months - she is a Douge DeBourdeaux (like the dog in Turner and Hooch)  My son and daughter in law have had several Douge DeBourdeauxs and they are the biggest, funniest, most lovable dogs!   So all of this is the reason for the Easter treats I chose - the dogs with the bunny disguises!! 
I bought the Easter dog chocolates at HomeGoods, they come with 10 pieces of chocolate in a pack.  I split them up and put three in one of Stampin' Up!'s clear envelopes, folded it over and made a tag topper as a favor.  I stamped a tag with Happy Easter and embellished it with some die cut flowers, leaves,  a few rhinestones and some ribbon.  I think all of my dog parents will enjoy these!

Here is a view from above!
My plates and napkins are reading a bit more peach in these photos, but they truly are a soft pink.  

The little sprinkling can napkin rings are a favorite I like to pull out anytime I have a garden theme!

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. Ann, Your table is adorable! I love your theme as I have bunnies running amok by the Potting Shed, nibbling on my perennials as soon as they break ground. They keep me hopping trying to keep them away. What a fun dog family and cute treats with your Stampin’ Up touch! I see a really cute vignette at the top corner of second photo that I would love to take a closer look at. I hope Lucy recovers quickly from her surgery so she can run around with her other canine family members. As always it’s a treat to join you at the table and hop with you! Happy Spring ♥

  2. Oh, my! I love the shade of pink in your lovely napkins. Those chocolates with the doggies sporting the rabbit ears are just too adorable. And those watering can napkin rings!!! Love all your soft spring touches.

  3. Your centerpiece is so pretty and i would enjoy sitting at this table! Cute idea to wrap your chocolates with a header! I miss stamping and should really pull the out again and play with them! Hope your pooch recovers quickly. Happy Spring

  4. Ann, I love that shade of peachy pink on the plates. Peach has always been a favorite color of mine. The plates make a nice contrast with the grey tones and the bunnies at each place setting. And all the greenery down the middle of the table feels fresh as spring.

    Have a Happy Easter,

  5. Ann, your Easter bunnies in the garden is darling. The tablecloth makes a perfect backdrop for your lovely pink plate stack. Such a charming centerpiece with the white bunny. Of course I love your favors with the dog bunny disguise. You are so talented creating fun party favors and cards. Always a pleasure to join you on these fun blog hops.

  6. Ann, I understand the dilemma of bunnies running amok. We have one living under our magnolia tree, and two babies popped out yesterday when my husband was burning a brush pile. They immediately ran under my cottage. They are cute, but so pesky. Your table is darling with the pink and gray plate stack. The dog treats are so sweet as is the dog family! Best wishes for Lucy’s quick recovery. It is always a treat to hop with you…Happy Spring!

  7. Hi Ann! I love your watering can napkin rings--what pretty place settings! It is a pleasure to hop with you again! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  8. So delightful Ann, I love that you had to bring in the dogs to control the bunnies! The tablecloth is so much fun and you styled the plate stacks perfectly to match and compliment. The centerpiece is adorable and so perfect for your fun theme! All the family dogs look so lovable, and the bunny disguise dog treats are hilarious! As always your Stampin Up creation favors are such a special touch, and I always love seeing your mantel styled to match your cute tablescapes! Thank you for the many smiles!

  9. I look forward to your stamped up party favors Ann...you are so talented and your table is perfectly set up. You needed not to worry about the table cloth being too busy.
    I know you will get the bunny situation under control with your dog sleuths on the job. I would have never recognized them in their bunny disguises. Love the colors you have chosen for your plate stack. Always fun to hop with you.

  10. Your pastel pink is just deliciously gorgeous! I love it all ♥

  11. I agree, Ann,those little watering can napkin rings are very cute and cheerful! I like the sweet trim on your napkins.That adds just the right touch.
    You really scored with the floral tablecloth. Your solid plates were perfect with it and all your bunnies look so cute. I love your runner and centerpiece and your cute and creative flavors.I always look forward to seeing what you will do with your Stampin Up creativity.

  12. Ann, I love dogs, so this is a very fun post for me. Thanks for sharing all the pups in your family, and I think all dogs deserve Easter treats. I love the shades of pinks and greens on your table. I also love your centerpiece in the lantern. I've been drawn to soft pinks and greens lately, especially greens in olive leaves and eucalyptus leaves. Happy Spring!

  13. How adorable! Ann, I love your tablecloth and choice of subtle solids here with the pink, grey, green and white. Those are beautiful colors, and they don't overwhelm the way brighter prints can sometimes. It's a very soothing look. What a pack of dogs and granddogs! You guys love the big ones, and that's amazing. I have two large granddogs (bigger than me!) and one smaller one. I hope your guy recovers well from his surgery. The little chocolates with dogs disguising as bunnies are so cute. Dogs have their way of going straight to our hearts with their antics. Your takeaways are a great nod to how we hoomans love our furbabies. Thanks so much for bringing your creative flair to the blog hop, Ann

  14. Ann, I'm sorry the bunnies are out in your garden. Hopefully the resident dogs will scare them off. Your table is delightful! I love the colorful tablecloth, and your dish stack is perfect with its soft pastel color. Darling napkin ring detail and candy treats. Happy Spring! Happy Easter!

  15. Such a fun table. The tablecloth and centerpiece are beautiful and I love your choice of plate stack colors. It looks like some of the bunnies are ready to nibble on whatever you serve, although it took me awhile to find all four gray ones.

  16. Ann, what a charming table and story. Yes, bunnies can run amuck. Thank God, Fern, our granny bunny is a senior bunny and visits only to leave the goodie baskets. I absolutely love your choice of a tablecloth. I just seen this at our HomeGoods this week and was very tempted to buy one too. It is perfect with your collection of pink and gray plates. Your bunnies in disguise chocolates are so cute for your adorable theme. How lucky to have such friendly pet dogs. I am allergic to them, so I can't cuddle with them. They are such a wonderful addition to the family. Have a wonderful Easter holiday.

  17. I love your table set as a garden! The centerpiece flanked by new growth tulips and leaves serving as the base for the place settings is really charming. I love the soft pinks in the tablecloth, napkins and plates. Bunnies certainly can run amok in the garden -- they nibble my hostas until there's nothing left, sigh... But I enjoy bunnies on tables and your doggies in bunny costume are so cute!

  18. Oh Ann! Your table theme speaks to me on so many levels! Bunnies have inhabited our yard as well, despite our herd of golden retrievers! They don't seem at all bothered! You have put such a fun spin on the whole situation! That tablecloth is so sweet, and I think my favourite is your pink plate stack with the dog theme chocolates! Your centrepiece most certainly is fitting, and adorable too! A very happy Easter to you! Hope you pup recovers well from his operation!

  19. Hi, Ann! I share your state of disconcertedness when it comes to busy tablecloths. I'm always wringing my hands with nervousness as to whether or not my table looks like a 3-ring circus. YOU, my dear, pulled it off!!!!!! I guess it's like wearing a dress that's all sparkly and fancy...you have to go simple with the jewelry! I like the way the grey plates work so well to even out the palette. I'm really sorry to hear about your dog's surgery, but he looks to be doing well. Hallelujah! Dogs are treasured family members, and you just HATE to see them in pain!!!
