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.

    This Easter tablescape is so pretty, Michelle! I have a big cloche like that but I never know what to do with it so I’ll definitely be taking a page from your book. I love the chocolate bunnies in the “matcha moss” too – that is such a genius idea! Hugs, CoCo

    • Michelle Meyer says:

      Thank you CoCo, the mossy bunnies make a whimsical addition to the table. I didn’t know if anyone would like them but I’m glad you did! Hugs!!

  2. Cindy Richter says:

    I can still brush off the green combo on the bottom of the chocolate bunnies and be very happy. Especially with a beautiful centerpiece and a little wine. Yep, I’d sit there with you and chat! Very pretty.

    • Michelle Meyer says:

      Thanks so much Cindy, you have the right idea. It’s a relaxed spot, perfect for wine and good stories. Hugs!

    • Michelle Meyer says:

      Thank you Carol! I’m a big chocolate lover, so it took a lot of will power to not eat the bunnies. 🙂

    I love your cloche decorated for Easter and especially love that you’ve had that bunny since childhood. Seeing your book reminds me that I have a similar one that I need to find to enjoy. I also like how you jazzed up your chocolate bunnies with pistachio and matcha.

    • Michelle Meyer says:

      Thank you Paula, I haven’t used a cloche in a long time. I think I’ll be using it more often especially for holidays. Thanks so much for your sweet comments!

    Your table is lovely and simple and the cloche is perfect. I love the way you have styled it setting on the deer moss wreath, a perfect base for the natural look of your vignette.

      Thank you Debra, I have always loved cloches and all the interesting ways they can be styled. Happy Easter!

    Michelle, I love the simplicity, charm and beauty of your table! As much as I liked the front of the cloche vignette (made about all things BP as I have a large figurine collection), it was the duckling basket on the other side that stole my heart — what a find.

    • Michelle Meyer says:

      I think that little duckling basket may have belonged to my mother. I’ve had it as long as I can remember. Thank you for your sweet comments Debbee!
