This vintage tablecloth is perfect for someone like me who follows no color rules on the table. There are a plethora of colors in this tablecloth for me to use, and I think I may have used all of them! (Have you ever wondered if I am color-blind?  Me too!)  I know- only Laurie would put a table on her blog that has THIS many different colors (you can’t ever say my tables are dull – wild and crazy maybe, but not dull!) You may recall that last year, I used my red plaid Christmas plates on this Easter tablecloth, so this color scheme may be a little subdued!!!


I’ve set the table for an afternoon cookie party.full tbl

mus bunnies

Williams-Sonoma plates

brown bunies

J. Willfred Bunny Toile plates



I got these cute little blue and white bunny servers from CC at Catherine De The Cups last year.




Cookies from Williams-Sonoma (I couldn’t decorate cookies like this!).


I very much appreciate you coming by today. Please hop over to Between Naps on the Porch. I promise there will be tablescapes that actually have coordinated color schemes! laurie

I could get lost in this beautiful tablescape, Laurie. You've told a story. It's all about the details, just like in a novel, one that's magically and beautifully rendered. The tablecloth is like the story's plot--forming the background--and you have spun a tale with accessories. I just love it! The cookies are adorable, too.

Not coordinated color schemes?? The blue plates give just the right accent while all the other colors in the plates and other pieces are straight out of the tablecloth. It all looks whimsical and fun and definitely "put together". Maybe I don't understand what a "coordinated color scheme" is. :)

I visit skatey-eight blogs with tablescapes, but yours are so incredible. That tablecloth, those plates, that teapot and bunnies. OMG! I love bunnies. Our real bunnies are in my gazebo this week. It's so cute, they think they live in a palace. Every morning I go and feed them and feel like Tasha Tudor. Oh, this table is wonderful.

Happy bunny, I could stare at this table all day.

Another great collection, Laurie! I'm ready to let the bunnies come out of the attic, but I think I'll wait until next week because we're supposed to have snow on Saturday. Hope the weatherman has his forecast wrong!
