FABBY: Two Little Easter Bunnies

Hello sweet friends!

I can't believe March is almost over and Easter is approaching us so quickly..before we realize it, it'll be summer for you my friends, living in the USA. I'm wondering if there is something going on in the atmosphere, or whatever, but I can't understand how fast life is you? Anyhoo, I did a tea table with a couple of little Easter bunnies that hopped at my table! Hope you like it.

Here are my little bunnies that came to my table for this Easter.
I used my Bavarian tea set for this table scape.

I love these pink napkin rings with butterflies, made back at our former Ceramic Co. Monte Turi...and they're perfect for a Spring tablescape.
Aren't they just too cute?! Look how she hides the carrots from her guy, or bro, lol..

A close up of the tea cups with pedestal.
The butter knives rests are kitty-cats, not bunnies..I guess cats like Easter too!!

I love this small silver tea caddy, with a tea pot shape on both sides.
These china has butterflies and flowers in many colors and others...just right for Spring.

You can see at your right a little bird inside his nest.

My three tier English Royal Albert, Lady Carlyle cake stand; was one of my three gifts hubby gave me for our last 38th. Wedding Anniversary.
 The flower vase is vintage Italian in yellow crystal and I arranged it with purple, yellow and pink flowers.

Some apples and peaches for after tea time. I placed this pretty ivory bowl in the pull out of my antique Belgium buffet.

Some of you who follow me remember I re-purposed my living room yellow moire draperies and had made two table cloths from them; after I replaced them with Hunter Douglas shades. The one for my breakfast table is all the way to the floor and finished with a ruffle.

Thank you my lovelies for your sweet and kind visit, you always make my day!

Very grateful to the wonderful hostesses, as I will be joining some exciting and fun parties, too.

Perfect! Down to the last detail (which is what you're The Best at--details)!

The 3-tiered stand is gorgeous; the knife rests so unique. And the repurposed drapes make the most wonderful cloth on which to lay all the pretties! And there's that detail again--the beautiful ruffle...

Happy Easter season! All creation is ♪ singing ♪ in your dining room ♥

Good Morning dear Fabby, No one does a table like you do! It is absolutely gorgeous-from the footed china cups to the kitty butter rests. I just love it. Those repurposed drapes made a beautiful tablecloth! Perfect for Spring and Easter.

Teresa said...

I really need to put my mind into how I'm going to decorate for Easter Sunday Lunch with the in-laws... I'm so behind it is almost ridiculous.
I bought my first Easter Bunny last year, and I'm looking forward to bring him out.

I'm in love with your three tier English Royal Albert, Lady Carlyle cake stand - it's so gorgeous and even in a table full of lovely details and pieces it stands there so elegant and feminine.

Happy Easter Dear Friend!

Another beautiful table set for tea! I love your pedestal tea cups, they're gorgeous. And the bunnies are adorable. I love the cat knife rests, you always have such unique pretties on your table.
Yes, life does seem to be going by very quickly, the older I get, the more it seems that way.
Hugs, Cindy

Newest follower here! I found you though the blog hop, you have a wonderful blog. I look forward to reading more. You can find me at


Alycia Nichols said...

This is such a joyful table, Fabby! When I saw the little knife rests, I thought they were bunnies with their ears kind of blown back! That's funny that they're actually cats! I never would have known!!! :-) Your china is so pretty, and I love the way you have everything set up in such a welcoming manner. This would be perfect for a day like today with it being the first day of Spring but as cold as the first day of winter!

Have a good weekend, and I hope you get lots of rest!

Maria C said...

Those bunnies are absolutely delightful, as is your buffet set up! So many wonderful signs of spring with the butterflies and the birds! Oh, if only we could get some warm weather!

Your Easter table is so pretty, and the little bunnies are darling. I looked around this year for delightful bunnies, but only found one that I liked. The pink rose tea cups are lovely too. Thank you for your comment on my post today. I enjoyed hearing the story about how you came up with the name for your blog. We talk to our dear friends every day, and it's so nice to know what their blog names mean to them. Have a happy Friday.

Zuni, Chickadee Home Nest said...

Sweet Fabby - this is about the loveliest table I've ever seen. The first picture kind of took my breath away, because of the beautiful tea cups all stacked, then to see all the beautiful details, like the napkins and the napkin rings, and those absolutely DARLING bunnies! I've never seen bunnies with droopy tummies--they're so cute!!

I hope you have a sweet and happy Easter, Fabby. Carinos, ~Zuni

Mary said...

They really are to cute for words:-). Your table is so beautifully set that it's a shame to disturb it. I hope you week is off to a great start. Blessings...Mary

Veronica Roth said...

Gosh Fabby it's all so lovely. There's so much to see on your table scape that I've spent a long time looking at all the images. Love the whole spring-whimsy feel of it. I never knew about table scapes before I started blogging but now I love them. Well done you! Hugs. :)

Melissa said...

Oh how perfect Fabby! I love the floral dishes and sweet little bunnies! ;)

Chubby Chieque said...

Hola amiga preciousa!!! Been awhile seems we both are busy. Well, I am just too busy with my work that it is hard to cope up with blogging.

I post and missed all the blog-round the world. Hope this finacial crisis will lay-low but Italy is on the way to have recesion and it will be hard for the EU countries. Therefore, multi billion banks are crazy transfer their stocks & funds like no more days to come.

BTW, this is one of the best table I have encounter in Fabby's Luxurious Living.

Enjoy and have great Easte break.

Hugs from the cold Stockholm,
/CC girl at D'Box.

Have a marvelous and blessed Easter dear lady.

Cheers, hugs and blessings from Wanda Lee
