RE-ceiving Guests: Easter Table #2

CASUAL BREAKFAST TABLE.  I posted this week about using a Butterfly Theme on my Living Room Mantel which left all my cutesy, pastel Easter stuff unused.  I decided to use it in my family room.  The pink felt placemats are from Target.  They are in the Dollar bins.  The bunny placemats are from Pottery Barn Kids.  I bought them 9 years ago for playdates and I still really like them.  The coordinating egg shape plate is also from Pottery Barn Kids as part of the same set.  I used a white cotton tablecloth and white napkins.  I used the green and white polka dot paper left over from my St. Patrick's Day table to decorate the napkins.   The crystal old-fashioned is by Gorham. 

Bunny Convention.  I gathered our stuffed bunnies and put them on a cake stand for a centerpiece.  I have pink and green tulle remnants that I used for make believe and different parties when my daughter was young so I wrapped some around the centerpiece for a bit more color. 

Got Bunny?  We have a lot of bunnies left over from when my daughter was young so Easter allows us to get a bit more use out of them. 

Big Centerpiece.  I normally don't have such a big centerpiece on this table, but I had so many bunnies to use that the centerpiece grew and grew.  I didn't even use half of our bunnies.  I was especially sorry to not be able to figure out a way to use our moss bunnies, but the table was just not big enough. 

Green and Pink.  The Pottery Barn bunny place mats and plates come in 4 colors: green, pink, blue and yellow.  I have 2 sets (btw, wish I had a third, but I haven't seen them again, not even on ebay, don't you hate it when that happens?) so I decided to only use the green and the pink to emphasize those 2 colors since it is a smaller table.  This also allowed me to use items like the green and white stripe candles and polka dot paper covered tin cans left over from my St. Patrick's Day Table which was nice.
