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….

Setting the Table: Easter Inspiration

This season I’ve noticed that I’ve become more and more partial to the color lavender than I ever have in the past. It is usually a color that I normally don’t gravitate toward. However, I really like this Easter table setting as seen in Victoria Magazine. The combination of lavender and green seems perfect for a springtime holiday celebration.easter entertainingeaster inspiration via reviving charm 4easter inspiration via reviving charm 2

  • China: There are two china patterns used for this table setting and each is by Anna Weatherley. Antique Vegetable is a discontinued pattern but Springtime in Budapest, above, is a current pattern and available here. The pattern is pricey but each piece is delicately hand painted in Hungary. Consider them heirloom pieces.
  • Lavender German crystal glass goblets available here.
  • Linen hemstitch napkins available here.
  • Beaded flatware available here.
