Bunnies, Bounty, and Bouquets Spring Tablescape

Welcome to Panoply! Today I'm participating with a fabulous group of gals in an Easter Joys blog hop organized by Amber of the blog, Follow the Yellow Brick Home. This is day two, but if you're just now coming over from Kristin's blog, White Arrows Home, I can bet you've already seen some inspiring displays of creativity. For the occasion of spreading Easter Joy, I've created a tablescape of Bunnies, Bounty and Bouquets!
This tablescape began with a moss runner on my dining room table, which I had rolled out a few weeks earlier to help usher in spring through the house.
Anchoring each end of the table are mixed bouquets of grocery blooms and vintage bunnies.
At the head of the table is a vintage concrete garden bunny, standing guard over the bounty down the table's center.
Each plate stack rests on a twig placemat, (previously used side by side as a runner here). A spring green dinner plate is the base for a vintage Staffordshire Ridgway "Old English Bouquet" salad plate.
Napkins are a simple pink linen, and napkin rings are ruffled ponytail elastics (!). Purple stemmed glassware is paired with green tumblers. A vintage frosted glass tidbit tray, which belonged to my mother, is used for serving, along with a spring green Blenko decanter. My bird salt and pepper shakers are perched on the table, and twig flatware completes the service.
The centerpiece of this table is a vintage chicken feeder, but this time it's serving veggies for a bunny buffet. There's a bounty of cauliflower, artichokes, carrots and radishes, mixed with eggs of various kinds: Blenko glass eggs made in a workshop last year, estate marble finds, and plastic ones, both speckled and with various decorated trims. A berry garland and tiny lights are woven through the feeder.
The bunnies at play in the center are concrete (on the swing) and metal (sniffing a daisy). My first inclination was to hang the swinging bunny from the chandelier, but my better judgment won out, and he's hanging from a wrought iron plant stand centered on the feeder. I vaguely recall another blogger recently describing how her chandelier came crashing down in an attempt to decorate it. 😲
The food is both faux and fresh. Can you tell which is which? 😊
At the other end of the table runner are another pair of snuggle bunnies, one napping and the other apparently ready to do the same.

Each setting is marked with a tiny, pewter bunny holding a place card.
When not holding place cards, the bunnies huddle together on a shelf in the sunroom. I'm not sure, but they may be practicing their multiplication tables. 😉
