Lent and Bunnies

For this tablescape, I debated whether I would use pink to make it look more springy or purple for Lent and decided to use more purple with a little tinge of pink. This is what I came out with.

John and AJ went to Walmart to buy some hair products and brought me this Easter lily plant.

I bought this dinner plate and bowl from TJ Maxx a while back but this is the first time I am using them. They were still in their original box. I think they have some kind of a maltese cross pattern.

I love the crackles on the bunnies.

The chargers are glass in eggplant color.
The stems are in similar color made by La Rochere in "Lyonnais" pattern.

Thanks for stopping by and I would like to wish you all a Happy Easter!
 I appreciate all the hostesses for putting up all these parties:

Oh Christine, your table is so lovely and I adore the purple to it all. The dishes are so much fun, I love things like this! The stems are so pretty too, but, the centerpiece bunnies are just my very fav! I'm also loving crackles on the ceramic bunnies, as sometimes it happens naturally and sometime they purposely make them..but yeah, I too love the look. Great color on the chargers too, it brings the table together so nicely.
HAPPY EASTER to John, AJ and you.

I like the motif on the plates. They reind me of a cross. The bunnies are quite special, and I think that the purple was the perfect choice. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Happy Easter! Cherry Kay

Beautiful table Christine, love the new dishes. I have the same bunny centerpiece, but it graces the niche by my stairs. Lovely!

I have the same bunnies as you! I leave them out almost all year because I love them so. Do you remember where you got those awesome asparagus salt and pepper shakers? And I love the purple chargers. Do you know who makes them? I have been looking for some.

Kathleen said...

That is beautiful, such different colors! The dishes are great, and of course the glasses! I have to go back and look again!
