Chocolate Bunnies in Spring


Welcome to my Chocolate Bunnies in Spring Tablescape and to Tablescape Thursday!

My chocolate bunnies welcome you to my first tablescape outdoors after a long winter for my poor bunnies and me!


I was so excited to set an outdoor table and remembered I had these bright placemats.  I think they were a quarter a piece on clearance.  Kathleen, do you approve?  I love going to Kathleen's site, Cuisine Kathleen, to discover all the bargains she finds.  It's like vicarious shopping -- much easier on the pocketbook...


It really is still a bit too chilly to dine outside, but the sun is shining and so beautiful.  These happy little guys and gals are soaking up the sun!  Faux chocolate bunnies are able to soak up the sun and remain intact.


The polk dot footed bowls were also a great buy I scooped up at Tai Pan Trading last year.



Here is a glass view.



I love this shot of my bunnies in silhouette.  Break out YOUR bunnies to herald in SPRING!


Thanks for dropping by Red Couch Recipes.

Love the bunnies! Can't wait to start doing outside tablescapes. I got a little something planned for my patio this year! I just can't wait!

Debbie said...

This is just great! I love the way you used those chocolate bunnies. I would never have thought of it, and it makes me smile.

Those happy polka dots are just gravy on the taters.

Jamie said...

We have been dining on the patio a lot lately, one of my favorite parts of Spring and Fall. I love those polka dot bowls, so cute.

So cute! The bunnies look so much like real chocolate, Joni:) I love the polka dots, and the blue is such a PRETTY shade.

I love the blue and green together, especially those adorable polka dot dishes. I bet they were glad to get outside and soak up the sun. I am ready for that too. I hear another storm is on the way though! Photographing inside hasn't been as hard as we thought though, all your winter photos were great.

Be careful not to bite the ears off those bunnies. My kids have tried to bite my fake stuff before! Yuck!

Pat said...

Cute table! I love the dotted bowls and bunnies!

Carolyn @ Adrift on the Lake said...

Ditto on the chocolate bunnies and polka dot bowls! I love them!!

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Faux chocolate would be easy on the waistline, besides not melting! It's still too cold here to set the table outside--it snowed again this past weekend. Your polka dot bowls are cute, and I think Kathleen will approve of your deal! Linda

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

How festive your polka dot bowls look with your bunnnies in them! Fun table!

Cute as can be! I'm wondering if your little bunnies are the real chocolate thing or faux like mine! I do love that crinkly green grass. It sure adds a nice color to your outdoor setting. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. :)
