Spring Tablescape With Bunnies And Eggs

Today I’m sharing a spring tablescape with bunnies and eggs, just in time to join the “Hop Into Easter” blog hop. I’m so excited to be joining Amber from Follow The Yellow Brick Home and a lovely group of bloggers.

These talented women know how to celebrate the seasons in style and are always inspiring me to try something new. If you are joining me from The Tattered Pew, then welcome! I love Kelly’s fresh style.

Spring Tablescape With A Cloche Vignette

For this casual eating spot I usually keep the decorating light and airy. Framing a spring vignette under a glass cloche creates a vintage centerpiece for the table.

I love displaying small collections or a delicate still life under the protection of a cloche or bell jar. They have an old world charm that’s simply magical, and I hope they will never go out of style.

Someday I’ll find the right wooden base for the cloche, but for now I’m using a tray with the addition of a deer moss wreath. I love the soft texture and color that the deer moss adds to the to the spring tablescape.

Building a vignette starts with a vintage book as a base, then a potted ivy, a porcelain bunny I’ve had since childhood and a Peter Rabbit book wedged in the middle.

Around the back of the spring vignette are two tiny baskets. The vintage wicker duckling is just big enough to hold a nest of Spanish moss and an Easter egg.

To complete the arrangement, I used a few grapevine twigs to frame the spring vignette, giving it a garden look.

Bunnies And Eggs

For the place settings, I’m sharing two looks with white dishes and napkins. That way you can see which simple arrangement you like best.

Our local grocery store is carrying the most gorgeous naturally colored fresh eggs that are perfect for a spring table. This sounds silly I know, but after hard-boiling them, they were just too pretty to decorate.

By the way these beauties are destined for another batch of deviled eggs. Yum! To see my recent post click on Classic Deviled Egg Recipe With Toppings.

 

Vintage egg with candies and chocolate bunnies.

 

On a small cake stand is an arrangement of candies in a vintage inspired paper egg with a pair of chocolate mossy bunnies. I love how these turned out. To get a soft green texture on the base of the chocolate bunnies, I mixed ground pistachios and matcha powder. Maybe not the tastiest combination, but the color works.

    Michelle, loved the cloche. It creates such a sweet spot of seasonal decor in a small space. I collected the Beatrix Potter books for my older daughter so that scene was special.

      Thank you Carol, spring is a fun and happy time for me to decorate. I always feel a bit nostalgic when I unpack old favorites. 🙂

    I love your gorgeous tablescape! Your cloche centerpiece is divine! I have Easter egger chickens that lay the blue and green eggs, and I’m with you – they’re too pretty to color! Happy Easter!

    • Michelle Meyer says:

      I’m so jealous that you have chickens and all those glorious fresh eggs! Thanks so much for your sweet comments Michelle. Happy Easter!

    I love your large sized cloche, Michelle! What a perfect centerpiece, and big enough to style a cute vignette in. I’ve got a small one and can hardly fit anything in it:( Always love to pop over and see what you’re creating!

    • Michelle Meyer says:

      Even with a large cloche, it was a tight squeeze getting those vines in the vignette lol. So happy you popped in to say hi Lora!

    Oh my goodness, simple spring perfection! Your cloche display is darling with so many little treasure! The wicker duck and basket was fun surprise!

    Those little chocolate bunnies are so creative and festive. I also bought some farm raised eggs with fabulous natural color that are too pretty to color. I love the details on your silverware too!

    Everything you share is beautiful!

    Thank you so much for joining the hop. Happy Easter!

    • Michelle Meyer says:

      I was afraid my tablescape was a bit too simple this time, but I just had to show off those pretty eggs. Thanks so much for organizing the blog hop with all these talented ladies. I’m going to go through all the posts again this weekend so I can really soak in all those fabulous ideas! Happy Easter Amber!

    Love it, as always, Michelle! We both had a little dash of Beatrix Potter in our tablescapes this year! The way you put together different combinations or accents is so lovely. I’m in love with your chocolate bunnies with grass, too. Great trick!
