YOU GOTTA LOVE THE COLORS

Easter is on it's way...  I thought I would change  up the colors a bit, usually there would be a lot of pink and blue and mint green ... I was so inspired by J Bigg's little pieces   Blog...she did a tablescape in these colors a couple of weeks ago and I just melted,  especially since I had added  pictures and pillows in those colors already, this would be perfect...so I was off through the house hunting up my tablescape color items....
I think  that is what I love about so many  of the blogs I read, they just inspire me to create . Do you ever feel inspired to get up and just create, like bake that dish or decorate that shelf or share that collection, or do that tablescape...whatever suits your fancy....
Once again I am so proud of the fact that I did not buy any new pieces for this table scape.  I am on this quest to try and use the things I have and not purchase items for the table... I remembered I had these Orange napkins I found for Halloween and never used...lol..The dishes aqua and white you will remember from this post   then I actually saw these napkins that coordinated so perfectly...

The small plates the bunny sits on are from Pier 1 about 3 years old...The larger orange plates are from Marshals many years ago, again I just did not get around to using, even though I loved the color so much..







 The carrots on the tray in the center of the table are part of my faux food collection, they are cute cute...
These tiny little orange and yellow flowers are from my pots on the side of the house....I know I know, a lot of you are deep into the snow (I love snow) where you live, but this is sunny Southern California and we have flowers in bloom all year....color is always everywhere and there is always something in bloom....just remember though you have to maintain all that all year, you don't get a reprieve in the winter...we think it is worth it though..                    
These flowers were around where all the birdhouses are located, it's called the bird place, do you have a space like that in your area, I like to keep all the feeders and houses so I can see them from the kitchen window.. 
You can see the big giant teapot I have used to put the flowers in...I think it makes a nice vase.........

 I love these sweet napkin rings, I found them at the GW and there were 8 of them in a plastic bag for 3.99...could you believe that...they are originally from Pottery Barn..I can only guess how much they were there.....such a fun find...


The little glass domes actually have glass stands they come with and were very inexpensive from Ross..I love them because they are so versitile you can use the little domes for many different tablescapes or with the glass holder...



These cute little bunny stands are from Pottery Barn, I purchased last year when I spotted them on Susan @betweennapsontheporch blog...they also have a cake stand that coordinates, but I sure don't need any more cake plates, I have way too many now...I never got a chance to use these little fellas last year, so this is my chance...they have them available again this year...sooocute



I know you must be thinking, wow this post has a lot of pictures, well you are right, couldn't decide which ones to use so I put all of them up lol...just indulge me...
You are able to see the pictures on the wall  and pillows from this angle and how well they coordinate with the colors in the tablescape..


Thanks for stopping by and spending some time around the house...I hope you were inspired to create your own fun Easter table...Leave a comment please, I love hearing from you and I read each and everyone...

  3. Love those bunny plates. So adorable. I like the pictures that match. Are they permanent or just for this table.

    1. The Pictures are permanent for spring, then I will change out to some lighter tones, I have a closet where I keep darker and lighter pictures just to change out, don't really have any permanent ones...I really like to change it up with pillows, throws, and pictures, most everything else is very neutral....

  16. I LOVE your colors....so cheerful for Spring.....and I DOUBLE LOVE those cute bunnies! Adorable! Thanks for your sweet visit to my table. I found the rooster plates several years ago at KMart -- actually I would not have known to go there if not for a blogging friend who posted them on her site. Maybe you'll find the one day at your GW.....like those WONDERFUL PB napkin rings!

  20. Okay, I'm seriously "crushing" over your beautiful tablescape! I am totally into turquoise this year and have it paired with yellows and even some reds, but it is so perfect with the tangerine -- WOW!

    I do that exact same thing sometimes -- be looking at a blog and get instantly inspired, and have to jump up and just do it!

So many details but I really love those bunny plates and the vignette on the tray. Your bird houses and feeders, how gorgeous! What a lovely view you have to enjoy. I love your big header!!!! Lovely blog.

  39. That is a beautiful tablescape. The colors are so different from the ususal Easter pastels. I would never have thought of using that shade of blue with the orange! I loved it. I also visited your hummingbird post, great pictures. Every spring/summer my hubby anxiously looks forward to seeing the hummingbirds.

  40. Oh my gosh Phyllis! I'm so glad you visited me because now I'm here seeing the most incredible tablescape! I love the combination of colors. They are unexpected and totally work! And I have been admiring those bunny cupcake stands. I guess that I'm just going to have to order them. I really like how you placed the glass domes on top of them!

  46. A lot of us who are under constant pressure tend to eat too much and
    do not take good care of their bodies. If you weigh yourself
    everyday or every other day and see that you've gained weight, your motivation may go down and you'll be likely to give
    up. If the answer is I''''''ll do whatever takes''''''''.

  47. I've listened to this a dozen or more times and still find it delightful and sooooo original in concept. This glass would cost less than $1000 and would be available to almost all the people in Britain. Thus they can choose from the many available sources.

  48. You should design tablescapes for Pottery Barn! I saw those little bunny stands on their website and thought they were alright, but now that I see what you've done with them...SO CUTE!

  50. It's so wild that you mention your inspiration from Judy Biggs blog! When I first saw the 1st photo, I immediately thought of Judy!!! She is the queen of aqua!!!

    I'm a faux food lover, too! I have a pretty extensive collection from when I owned a shop. It's just fun to use...kind of like playing house when we were little girls!

    I love the little pots under the cloches! They work so nicely. Everything works beautifully together that you have on the table (those bunnies on their backs...SO cute!), and I really love the way your decor in the room complements it! Great tablescape!
