Set the Table Bunnies & Cabbages

Set the Table Bunnies & Cabbages

The theme for Easter in the Dining Room is

Bunnies and Cabbages.

As you will see there isn't an Easter Egg in sight on the table.

The cabbages are silk and they came in little pots.

The colour scheme is White/Green/Blue.

Four White Bunnies have taken up residence on the table.

The Green wine glasses are used quite often and I have had them for a few years.  I don't know the name of the pattern or remember where I purchased them.  

A pair of white wooden candlesticks with white pillar candles stands one at either end of the table.

The table runner is white, blue, and green printed cotton blend.

The napkins are a pale green with lace border.

This Flatware is 18/10 Stainless Steel and the pattern is

I look for 18/10 Stainless when I am shopping as it seems to be of better quality than some other Stainless.

Here is the place setting altogether.

The sun was shining when I took these pictures.

The smaller bunnies seem to be playing around the little wood bench.

While the larger bunnies appear to be watching them.

Green and white flowers are tucked under the bench as well as another cabbage.


The plates are stacked on top of water hyacinth place mats.

The dinner plate and bowl are Royal Albert the For All Seasons series.  This set is called Breath of Spring.  They are mostly white with a little colour around the border.  The colours on the bowl and plate are soft and delicate.  Right away the green in the leaves jumps out and ties in with the colour scheme.  The flowers on the plates are the softest pink and barely there.

The Cabbage Salad plate is Bordallo Pinheiro.  I wish I had more of them.

The larger bunny above measures 18" H x 11 " W

The smaller bunny (only because it is crouched down) measures 15" H x 12" W.

The table setting is quite simple.  There is nothing complicated about it.

The theme and colour scheme go well together.    White bunnies and green cabbages set the theme and the beginning of a colour scheme. When the colour palette is kept to three or a maximum of four colours things start to mesh.

  1. All very pretty! Your white bunnies are adorable with their sweet expressions.

  2. The white bunnies are so charming. Being white there is a lot of uses for the at any time of year and not just Easter. I could easily imagine them among a cabinet filled with white dinnerware or milk glass.

    1. I like both of your Ideas. I have a pair of brown bunnies, much smaller, that I use at Christmas sometimes.

  3. Just discovered your blog!Just Beautiful!

    1. I don't take compliments lightly, so a heartfelt Thank You, Carol.

  4. This isn't complicated but it is adorable. Thanks for linking to Monday Social.
