The Bunnies Are Ready For Easter Breakfast Tablesetting

It’s all about whimsy, springtime, and bunnies in this earthy-themed tablesetting for Easter morning breakfast.

Simple stalks of pussywillows are casually contained in a glass vase and secured by colorful Easter eggs at their base. Easter eggs are  strewn about the table in and among whimsical little green moss bunnies. I really think the trio of green bunnies is on an Easter egg hunt!

The green faux-moss bunnies are kind of a refreshing change from the traditional pastel colored bunnies.

In a departure from traditional placemats, I have used squares of imitation moss. The white dinnerware pops atop the green moss mats. White dinnerware works for any occasion and really is a good investment. I’ve used very plain flatware in keeping with the informal tablesetting.

Simple napkin rolls are held in place with pewter napkin rings that feature springtime daffodils. These were made by Seagull Pewter in Pugwash, Nova Scotia.

This setting is meant to be fun and informal.

The bunny eggcups keep the bunny theme going.

Little Easter chocolate bars adorn each cup but are easily set aside and replaced with a boiled egg, if desired, at breakfast. Who says you can’t have chocolate for a breakfast treat!

I have added a couple of larger faux moss-covered whimsical bunnies to my dining room mantle to coordinate the theme throughout the room.

Easter Breakfast Tablesetting

 

A Casual Tablescape for Easter Brunch

Easter offers so many options for tablescapes and tablesettings.  Today, I am sharing a more casual, yet fun, tablescape.

My focus with this tablesetting is the “corralled” tablescape.  I have used a wire tray as the base into which I have clustered the elements of the table centerpiece. Corralling keeps the elements tidy and together instead of having them spread out over the table.

This is an ideal option if you plan to bring, during the meal, a platter of roast turkey or ham, for example, to be carved at the table. It is easy to lift off the basket or tray with the centerpiece on it and replace it with the meat platter.  The centerpiece can then easily be returned to the table for the dessert course so the table is never without a focal centerpiece during the meal.

I have simply used some faux grass in the bottom of the tray and added a substantial-sized bunny to give the centerpiece prominence and height.  Then, I filled in the rest of the basket with a small bright pink geranium, a tiny bird’s nest, some Easter eggs, and some egg shells filled with tiny flowers and faux grass. A piece of egg carton provides a nesting spot for the egg shells.

It is not necessary to have fine china to set an attractive table.  This table is set for Easter brunch so I have used everyday stoneware and, instead of formal napkins, have opted to use pastel-colored tea towels that match the color scheme of the centerpiece. Tucked underneath the charger plates, the tea towels take up no room on the table and do not compete with the tablescape or place settings.

I have dressed up each place setting with an egg cup filled with tiny flowers that connect each place setting to the centerpiece.

A few tiny Easter eggs and a small chocolate bar complete the place setting.

Happy Easter!
