I welcome you to my warren. A warren of bunnies that is.
These darling bunny plates hopped their way from their warren at Williams Sonoma to their new warren in Lubbock, Texas via UPS! Here's a tip: If you see something on line that is out of stock.. call the catalog, they can tell you which stores still have stock. Call the stores, order your merchandise and it shall come to you!
Ordered some. Needed more. Followed the tip above.
Aren't they darling?
I paired them with their matching napkins on a gingham placemat that I was the lucky one to win from Linda at More Fun Less Laundry. Just love these. So very versatile. Run over and pay Linda a visit and tell her I sent ya!
And I pulled out those green DT goblets again. You know, the color is just so good. I keep checking to see if they get them back in. A girl can never have enough dishes, glassware or shoes! They are still available online HERE.
I might just have to order a dozen more green, the blue is out of stock :-(!!
I invited the Pier One dancing bunnies. They sure know how to party.
Just say I told you so.
And the green vases I found a while back from, ya you guessed it, Dollar Tree.
I just knew they would be so perfect to march down a table.
With all the frivolity going on, the silver came out to tone down the partying bunnies.
I used some fabulous fauxs for this table. Just because it's not quite Easter - yet.
Even the sun came out to play when it saw how much those frolicking bunnies were having.
Silver trays for chargers, white Wedgwood plates, Old Company Plate silver and World Market floral napkin rings. Here's another tip: if you can't find the finishing pieces to Estate Sale silver, check Ebay. You be surprised at how reasonable you can find the missing pieces. I have enough of this now to serve a small army, or the entire family and their friends.
Some is monogrammed, some not. Antique dealers want 5x more than what I paid on Ebay.
This pattern came about in 1950. The majority of the pieces came monogrammed.
Pier One had the cutest bunnies this year. I did remove the brown gingham ribbon from around their necks and change it out for some green. I've got a few more around the house sporting pink, orange and blue neckware.
Promise I'm not on a ladder. My Canon has a vari-angle viewer. I reach way up by the chandelier, point down and click away.
For the new potatoes, I like to serve chive butter in individual butter dishes.
Set the butter out to come to room temperature. Work it with a fork, or the beater blade of your mixer. Add in a bit of salt, I always buy unsalted, and then the chopped chives.
I was so excited to be able to use chives from my basket on the kitchen porch! They came back from last year. Oh yeah, I was pleased as a peach.
