Tablescape Thursday.....It's beginning to look alot like Easter!

Well I have been away for a bit, nice to get back in the swing of things, including Tablescaping.
Thank you to Susan who is our wonderful hostess at, www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com .
Be sure and check out her blog and the other bloggers who are showing their fabulous tablescapes this week.

Well I dug out my Easter things the other day, as it is that time of year.
So first of all I thought I would set the Kitchen table for a bit of Spring.
I even hung eggs from the chandelier.
(Click on any photo to enlarge)
As you can tell I have a taster for Chocolate here, lol.
I started with that as the basis for my table.
Chocolate bunnies abound ( faux ones that is)!
There are yummy chocolate eggs in cabbage dinnerware serving
pieces. Little chicken napkin holders snuck in there too.

The faux chocolate pieces are a collection I started years ago.
I usually find a new different piece each year to add to it in my travels.
This is a piece I found last year, wish I had 3 more of these to use as egg cups when place setting.

The place setting; brown place mats from Marshalls, our every day Oneida flatware, brown napkins that friends gave us this past Christmas, thrift store chicken napkin rings, green pressed glass "thistle" tumblers, brown Walmart water glasses, Bordallo Pinheiro "Cabbage" dinner plates and serving pieces, topped with Williams Sonoma egg plates in different pastels that I found brand new at a thrift store last year.

The center piece, some of my largest faux chocolate bunnies on a cake stand with one of my small topiaries.

A little bit of cabbage and my bunny topiary in the corner of the kitchen too.

I think we are ready for a nice Easter breakfast at this chocolatey table,
what do you think?

I instantly thought "mint chocolate" when I saw your luscious colors on this table. :)

Those faux chocolate bunnies are simply wonderful!! I love it that you made one hold an egg. I agree, you MUST find more of those. Put the word out & someone in bloggerville will hunt them down for you, I'm sure.

Deliciously Delightful!!

ps ♥ the chandy shot!

Your tablescape is great. I am sure that the faux chocolate bunnies love to sit in the middle of the table, surrounded of cabbage plates. The colours chocolatebrowh, cabbagegreen and the pastels makes your tablescape wonderful. Thanks for showing.

I wish you a nice Eastertime.
