~~Bunny Comes A Calling On~~~ Tablescape Thursday~~~

Can you all believe it's Tablescape Thursday already? Where has this week gone too? Well, ladies and gents you are in for a treat. Slip right on over to Susan's at for a full list of participants and inspiration.

Last weekend we had some unexpected company for the weekend. While they were still sleeping I got busy and started playing with my dishes. After all, a gal's gotta do what she's gotta do right? Last Spring I stopped in Cracker Barrel on a mission to find a bunny chalkboard like I had seen on Pat's blog. She had purchased it a while back, and I was in hopes they might do a repeat of the product. No such luck. Have to admit I was a bit disappointed. While there I looked around and spotted these dishes. Most of you know how I "love" bunnies. Immediately, they screamed take me home. How could I not listen to them? So while everyone was still sleeping I started pulling out a service for one. Selfish? Nah... remember they were still sleeping. lol I started with the brown charger. I thought the texture went well with the design of the dishes.

Notice the design on the inside of the cups? The details are incredible. It almost appears like the bunny is sniffing the edge of the cup. lol
I topped the dinner plate with this oval shaped desert plate.
I'm sure many of you recognize the flatware. A Target find last summer. I thought the bronze colored flatware went well with the brown toned dishes. I love, love, love the details of the metal work. Don't you love a bargain? Especially, when it doesn't "look" like a bargain. lol

I chose the placemats with the pastel colors. They were purchased at TJ. Maxx as well as the yellow napkins. The small chick and egg salt and pepper shakers were too cute to pass up.
I"m not "real" sure what these cute little shaped items are suppose to be for. Possibly an egg holder? I chose to put candles in them. I had to hurry a bit, you can the wind was starting to pick up. I puts some "faux" foliage in this beautiful urn for the center piece. Now, don't chase me down and beat me up because I used faux greenery. Remember, I'm doing this in the early a.m. hours before company wakes up and I have to start

Hi, Mr. Bunny!!

Isn't the basket weaved edge incredible?

After taking most of the pictures I stood back and critiqued the table. I thought maybe the charger was a bit too heavy looking for the table setting. I pulled it and took a few more pictures. I think I prefer it without the charger.

Another close up.. Isn't this bunny just too cute for words?

What do you folks think? With the charger?
Or without the charger?

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed being here as much as I enjoyed having you. Don't forget to swing over to Susan's for a full list of participants and their tables full of inspiration. Susan, thanks once again for hosting another Tablescape Thursday..
