Bunny Hop

I wasn't planning to do an Easter post this year, but then I walked into Ross, my favorite store, and the cutest bunnies just hopped right into my cart!  How could I possibly resist?

So I had to look in every storage place for items that would go with my newest furry friends.  
My sweet husband didn't think the color combo was very Easter, but I kinda like it.  What do you think? 

You might notice that the aqua plates aren't all the same kind (look at the first close up at the beginning of this post).  I search high and low for additional plates to no avail.  I found the embossed American Atelier aqua plates on Ebay and thought there were a pretty good match.

  1. Such a lovely table. I love the blue bunnies and the change in typical Easter colors. Glad those little furry guys jumped into your cart! Hugs, Linda

  2. I don't know if the colors are Easter but they are certainly pretty and with those bunnies how could this not be an Easter table? Your rim shot is very nice! Linda

  3. As I say to my kids - there are no rules in decorating - you can use what you like!! Lovely table.

  4. Dianne:

    I think this may be my favorite table you've done. It's neat to take a color that isn't traditional to a season and make it work.

  5. I think it's a lovely table. And the layers of blues/aqua with a bit of soft yellow is very pretty. Visiting from Let's Dish.

  6. I love the color combo! It's so calm and serene and perfect for Spring!!

  7. Well, may not be the typical Easter colors, but since blue anything is my favorite...I love it!

  8. Oh I love your pretty plates! I think your table says Spring and Eater!

  9. I'm sure your husband is an intelligent, loving man, but I think he missed it on this one. This is a beautiful Easter table!

  10. Aqua is my favorite color for a table...I think this makes a gorgeous Easter table, Dianne! In fact it is one of the prettiest I have seen in blogland. I wouldn't have even noticed the aqua plates didn't match if you hadn't told us...sometimes it is nearly impossible to find matching plates. I have been looking for a particular plate for over 5 years...I am hoping one day to find it!

  11. Those are gorgeous colors, and perfect for Easter! Your bunnies are adorable and the table is just beautiful! Thanks so much for linking up to Let's Dish! See you next week at 7!

  12. Your tablescape turned out beautiful...love the bunnies with those beautiful dishes..don"t you love it when a plan comes together

  13. Love the blue! And just what I was looking for -- trying to think of an Easter table with colors other than the usual suspects! Your table turned out perfectly.

  14. I think the colors are beautiful and love the salad plates-enjoy:@)

  15. Oh, I love your Easter table and the colors are gorgeous. Your new little rabbits are adorable! I have the same little fat blue birds as you have! Now I wonder if there are any more little blue rabbits...
    Be a sweetie,

  16. Dianne, this is another fabulous table! Your new bunnies inspired greatness, because they are great themselves. And I think it's perfect for Easter or the Easter season. xo marlis

  17. Dianne, you have done an excellent job, I love these aqua colors, they are my very favorite color. Wish those bunnies would have jumped in my cart, I can't get enough of aqua. So I am just lovin' your table. I wouldn't have notice all the plates weren't the same, at least they are aqua and look great on your table. Perfect job, thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog (you see lots of aqua on my posts right now).

  18. Now how could a beautiful bunny like that NOT make a lovely Easter table!? Nothing like a little inspiration to get you going. You got a lovely result with your beautiful dishes. So nice to know you came by! Thanks for the very nice feedback. I really appreciate it!

  19. Pretty table! I like to shake things up a bit myself on holidays, not sticking with the expected always.

    I really like that patterned plate.
