Tablescape Thursday........Chocolate bunnies anyone?!

Time for Tablescape Thursday!
Thank you to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch blog for hosting our ever fun Thursdays.
Be sure and check out her blog ,http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ which is great, for all the other bloggers
with tablescapes this week!

Well you can't have Easter without chocolate bunnies! So Ron and I will be eating breakfast at this table on Easter!

(Click on any photo to enlarge) Sorry for the quality this week, my lighting was not cooperating with the photographer!

Centerpiece is some of my "chocolate" bunnies collection, some eggs, some faux cabbage
all resting on my green and white bunny toile platter.
One reason I like to put centerpieces on platters is, that you can remove the whole thing and set aside when serving the food if need be!

The place setting with our everyday flatware, brown or chocolate glassware is from

For the top plate I used my bunny toile dishes that I have had for several years.
And of course they needed a napkin bunny resting on them.

I used my Les Famille toile dinner plates by Rosanna like chargers this time or
as the main plate.
Love these plates!

I found these cute little egg cups recently , as well as the little muffin plates ( which are
from Harry and David). The faux egg ornaments my mother gave me last year.

A little faux chocolate , some cabbage, and more!

Some of the other "chocolate" things that grace the kitchen at
Easter time. I usually find a new piece or two of figural "chocolate"
each year.

Some chocolate under glass cloches!

I wanted to try my hand at folding napkins. So these are suppose to look like
bunnies with ears.
I used some brown buttons and some ribbon for ties ons to make the nose and whiskers.
