Rabbit, Rabbit : Entertaining for Easter

I always wondered why Sarah Jessica Parker signs off some of her Instagram posts with “Rabbit, Rabbit”. It turns out that it is a greeting to be used on the first day of the month and is meant to wish someone good luck for that month ahead. An interesting article about this tradition/superstition can be found here. “Rabbit, Rabbit” will be particularly appropriate to use this Easter since it happens to fall on April 1 this year. If you are planning to host an Easter celebration why not greet your guests with “Rabbit, Rabbit” and accessorize your dining table with a few moss bunnies. I recently saw the following picture reposted on the Instagram account of one of my regular reads, Blue and White Home and it made me want to order a bunch of bunnies for the table!  (Thanks for the inspiration, Elizabeth!) If you want to add a few bunny rabbits to your own Easter table then keep reading because I have a few sources for you.

I love the idea of giving everyone their own bunny by placing these napkin rings at each table setting. They are currently on clearance for a steal of a price at Pier 1 Imports for $2.68 each. Because I can’t leave well enough alone, I’d be tempted to tie a loose bow of double-faced satin ribbon to help camouflage the spring. moss rabbit napking rings_reviving charm

Here’s a look at a table styled with the bunny napkin rings. moss rabbit napkin rings_reviving charm 1

If you are looking for a larger scale bunny, this one might do the trick. It measures 6″ x 12″ x 10″. Buy it herefrom Nordstrom.moss bunny rabbit nordstroms_reviving charm

You can also find small and large bunnies available through Ballard Designs. They look cute together as a group.

This moss bunny planterfrom Save On Crafts is 100% cuteness and would look great filled with fresh seasonal flowers. Save On Crafts has been a great resource of mine for many, many years for all kinds of craft related items. Many of their other moss bunnies are already out of stock so buy early if you want one of your own. moss bunny rabbit planter_reviving charmThey also have a large bunny(12″x6″). This one really has some nice realistic detail to it. moss-covered bunny rabbit_reviving charmI just realized that I haven’t done a crafty type post in some time so I hope you enjoyed today’s Easter inspiration. All the best….

Happy Easter. Viva Spring. Viva Sweet Love

Sweet spring is your time
is my time
is our time for springtime
and viva sweet love.   –E.E. Cummings

 

Several weeks ago I had a fleeting thought about hosting an Easter brunch for the family. I procrastinated and never got around to actually planning anything. Shame on me. I guess I can try for next year! Instead, the Mr. and I will be having an Easter BBQ at home for just the two of us. I also plan to spend the morning out in the backyard garden to tidy up the containers just a bit. This morning I spent quite some time outdoors taking inventory of what needs to be done. Nature’s lovely creatures were out in full force. I really enjoyed seeing all the hummingbirds, lizards, butterflies and squirrels in action. I can’t say the same for a couple of spiders I encountered. EEK!!!!! Couple all the “activity” in the garden with the sight of beautiful new blooms and I was reminded me that spring is definitely here!

Viva Spring. Viva sweet love. Happy Easter!  xoxo- V.
