A Bunny Breakfast Tablescape

Do you remember the flop eared bunnies from the nineties?  I came across a set of them (they are marked Donna Little 1998) at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago and they just hopped in my cart and hitched a ride home with me.  I guess they were lonely for some company.  The truth is that they will have a lot of company once all of the other bunnies under my care are unpacked and placed around the house for Easter.

I invited the girls to breakfast today to see how they would fit in with the rest of the bunnies.  They appeared to enjoy breakfast, and they really liked having fresh cut flowers on the table.

I didn't tell them that the tulips in the little bunny vases were made of wood and just painted to look like tulips. The little bunny vases and the wooden tulips were found at Goodwill at the same time as the flop eared little cuties. The egg cups and the Tropicana juice glasses were found at Goodwill near where I work several months back.  The vase Came from the same Goodwill store. The vase looked so Spring like that I just had to use it for this first Spring Sunday Morning Brunch of this year.

Except for the chargers (Ebay) larger flower plates (Ebay), flatware (Marc's), Napkins (Marc's) everything else on this table was thrifted.

The napkin package is marked Raymond Waites Studio.  I looked them up on Amazon and said to myself "oh my"  I could never pay that much for a set of napkins.  Thank Goodness for Marc's!  The green flatware also came from Marc's for $2.99 for four place settings.

The dinner plates were just marked "HOME" & Made in China - they came from the Salvation Army Family Thrift Store - I bought on half price day for about four dollars for eight plates.

The large flower salad plate is marked Certified International (is that code for not made in the USA)?

The small bead and butter plate is marked "A PERFECT OCCASION" also made in China.  For fifty cents each I will buy them (plus I get a Senior discount).

The cute little egg cups came from the Goodwill store a while back.

Glass plate yard decor by Kathleen


 **************************
Kathleen (one my my cohorts in thrifting at work) brought in the pretty yard decor that she is making out of clear plates and small crystal candle holders. The pieces are all glued together to be mounted on fence posts and such for outside yard art. Aren't they pretty? (and they look even better in person). FYI the one in the middle sold since I first posted these pictures.

Thrift on ladies - thrift on!
 Remember buying from your local charities like Goodwill, The Salvation Army, and The Volunteers of America helps provide jobs for our communities and it also keeps your money in your community working for you!

  1. So many fun pieces on one table! I am so envious of you who find such special treasures at resale shops. Every now and then I get lucky, but it takes lots of looking.

    1. Thank you Lulu, I am in the Goodwill at least four of five times a week. As with everything it is all in the timing. The Goodwill at the corner where I live brings out the carts of the new donations around 5:00 pm, I get there just a few minutes later after work. The Goodwill at the corner where I work brings out new stuff all during the day. I get there around Noon and I usually find something there. I only go to the Salvation Army once or twice a month when I am going that way.

  2. All of your spring and bunny pieces are so pretty, Candy! Are you having a link-up for your Bunny Palooza?

  3. Oh such a pretty spring table - I've been waiting. I can't do any table settings right now - I have Donnie's quilt on the dining room table - feverishly trying to get it done before we leave a week from Wednesday. I adore you flower plates - and all the bunnies. This might be my favorite table setting of all time. (Sorry the toast got burned LOL)

  4. Hi Candy,

    Your beautiful bunny breakfast tablescape is one of the first I've seen in blogland and it is such a sweet collection of all things Easter: eggs, baskets, bunnies, daffodils, etc! Love the colour combinations and your balance of textures and patterns. I'm sure all who have the pleasure of dining with you on this upcoming occasion will feel the joy and lightness of this holiday!

    Thanks for sharing and inspiring!

    Have a lovely week!

  9. Candy, you must live near some really great thrift stores because you find some really terrific stuff! It is really tough for me to find great stuff on a regular basis. Maybe it's because I don't go in often enough. I admire how you are able to hone in on "the good stuff."

    I DO remember the flop eared bunnies from the 90s!!! I met my husband in 1991, and bought a bunny that same year. Named her Amelia. Still have her. LOVE her!!!
