I saw quite a few Goodwill finds on your table. It is addictive isn't it. I wouldn't have as many dishes as I do if it wasn't for lawnsales or Goodwill. By the way, glad you liked the scarf. I was thrilled to find it.

I like your cheerfully combined colours of the plates. And the bunnies which hop all over the table gives a really Easter feeling. That Easter tree is a gorgeous idea. I enjoyed visiting you.

Mimi, Thanks for your comment on my tablescape - It was my first one and I didn't describe it, but the old tin Easter bunny you see actually plays "Hippity Hoppity, Easter's On It's Way...", so your title caught my eye! Very beautiful table - I love everything about it! blessings, ava

The little lop bunny peeking out looked both sweet and sad - so cute. Great idea with the pins on the napkins for adding a little bling.

Audra said...

I love all the colors on the table. It looks just like an Easter basket fully of goodies.

Thanks for the great advice on decorating. I think I have just gotten overwhelmed and need to step back for a bit and let the house/decor speak to me.

Natasha said...

Wow, what a beautiful tribute to Spring and Easter! This is such a bright and cheerful table Mimi and I love all your pretty pastel colours. You have got some cute bunnies too. This is my first Easter as a blogger so I can see that I am going to have to hit the sales next week so I have some more Easter goodies for next year!

Thanks for visiting too Mimi and for your sweet comments! I am sure that lots of Chocolate eggs will help my boys forget about their injuries for a while.

I hope that you have a beautiful Easter Mimi.

Blessings and best wishes,
Natasha.
