Pink Saturday...It's Bunny Time!

It's Pink Saturday!

Hello my friends! So glad that you stopped by for "Pink Saturday"! Ohhh my...there's nothing better than a fun-filled party in pink!

Beverly over at How Sweet The Sound hosts this weekly event. If you haven't ever been over to Beverly's place, you're missing out on a real treat! Just click
HERE and it will take you right over to her place. You'll also find a list of the most fun lovin' pink ladies over there too...so you better get ready for a Saturday full of pink!!!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A few weeks ago I found an apothecary jar at Walmart. I had been wanting one for some time...it finally went on sale ($21) so I snatched it right up! I have already had lots of fun decorating with it! In fact, I posted about it a week ago. To read more about that post just click
HERE!

With Spring and Easter right around the corner, I decided it was time that my little apothecary jar got a make-over! Well, it's actually not so little...it measures about 20 in. tall.
*
So without further ado...I present to you "It's Bunny Time"!
*
"It's Bunny Time"

*
I sure had fun playing today!!! The first thing I did was look through all of my tablecloths. I finally decided to layer the dining room table with a green and white plaid tablecloth that I made several years ago...on top of that I placed another smaller tablecloth (that I also made) out of a coordinating rose printed fabric. On top of the rose tablecloth, I laid a place mat that I made out of a third coordinating fabric! Wow...I just realized that I haven't sewn that much in quite a while! I just love these tablecloths and placemats...such a pretty plaid and floral prints! The buttery yellows, soft pinks, and sagey greens work perfectly for Spring/Easter!

"It's Bunny Time" Apothecary Jar...

This was really a simple redo...I filled the bottom of the jar with those yummy pastel colored malted milk eggs...just look at the pretty white, yellow, lavender, and robin's egg blue! I placed my sweet little rose bunny on top of the eggs. I found this sweet little bunny at the thrift shop for just $3! It was love at first sight...I just love the pretty pink roses against the soft white of the bunny! The roses are glass and so delicate looking! Then I made a bow with a pretty pink gingham ribbon and a feathery-looking white ribbon...these rolls of ribbon were only a $1 at Dollar Tree. I took a pretty pearl clip-on earring to decorate the bow!
*

*
"It's Bunny Time" and a Vignette...
*
Well, I probably don't need to tell you how these things go...I was just having so much fun decorating my little apothecary jar...and I was on a roll!!! Hmmm...what does this vignette need? Maybe a little greenery? I shopped the house and found this pretty ivy plant in a green planter...I think this will work nicely! I placed it in the background behind the jar. What about a few candles? I mean, what's a vignette without candles...hehe!!! Two silver candleholders with white candles would be great...and how about my new mercury glass goblets? Oh yes, I like how they look with the jar and ivy!!!
*

*
Maybe my bunny plate would look nice in this vignette...after all, it is bunny time!!! I've had this little bunny plate for years and years...in fact, I've had it so long I don't remember where it came from or how much it cost! hehe!!! I love the green stripes and the little black & white checkered border. This little bunny is busy planting a garden...look at the sweet blue watering can and the pretty pink hydrangea!
*

*
Oh looky here...two little birdies decided to fly in for a visit! These are cast iron birds from Hobby Lobby...they were on the 80% off shelf...only $1.50ea.
*

*
Ohhh...I did say I was having fun playing didn't I? I changed out the bunny plate for a salad/dessert plate from my Hallmark Rose Mist china. The green plaid border on this little plate does look pretty with the green plaid tablecloth...and then there's the pink rose! Hmmm...which one do I like better?
*
What do you think?
*

*
I think that my little miniture cloche looks nice in this vignette. See the pink rose under the cloche? This was my honey's boutineer when we were married! Soooo sweet! I added the same feathery white ribbon to the cloche...and a pretty key! My honey will always hold the key to my heart! Ooops...this is Easter...not Valentine's Day! Sorry!
*

*
Ahhh...Pink Saturday!!! Tablecloths and placemats filled with pink roses...a bunny with pink roses...a pretty pink gingham bow...well, I could go on and on!!! I love the pink!!!
*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
*
Well my friends...I'm so glad that you came by for just a peek of pretty pink today!!! Please leave me a comment and let me know you were here...I just adore it when you come by!!!

I hope that your Saturday is filled with lots of pretty pink pleasures!!!

Love ya'll,
Chari

Oh Chari! I love it!!!!! I love it with both plates but I am partial to bunnies! You are so good at this girlfriend! A real pro! Everything is perfect! I'm just gushing I liked it so much! I don't know how you find the time to do such wonderful settings! I guess I'm just not a good time manager! I had so much to do today at home. I have got to get my dining room cleaned out and up for Easter and I ended up helping a friend, (member at Curves), set up her stepdaughter's wedding! Oh well, I enjoyed helping and she appreciated it! Have a wonderful weekend girlfriend! Not to make you jealous or anything but I'm working out in the yard all day tomorrow! It's supposed to be beautiful...but never fear, Monday night is supposed to be down in the 30's! God Bless! Lauralu:)

Char,
Your blog is truly one of my favorites! I love your writing style and design sense. The Bunny in the apothecary jar is adorable. Last summer I bought a cloche, which I have fun with. I think a bunny might find his way inside after seeing this post. Have a great Saturday, in my home state of Colorado. I will be visiting in May and can’t wait to see the Rocky Mountains. Have a wonderful Saturday ~Cathy~

I left a comment, then blogger came up with some excuse why it wouldn't print. I'll try again-- You are just a vignette-playing fool up there in snow and wind country, aren't you? In this unsettled weather what else can you do, right? Loved everything with your apothecary jar especially the bunny plate. Have a great weekend. Sally

Smilingsal said...

Thanks for sharing. Happy Pink Saturday. Check out my book giveaways!

Come for Blue Monday.

Kim @ Manning Family Tree said...

I love it!!! Fabulous as always. You have the knack girl. Does it come easy to you? Or are you like me & really have to work at it long & hard? You make it look easy. I love the bunny in the apothecary jar. If it wasn't for blogging, my decor would stay the same all year round. I've been totally motivated to mix things up since blogging.

ann said...

Deanna said...

Hi Chari,
I was playing around with my table last night and took similar pictures. I will have to steal the idea of the ribbon around the top of the apothecary jar...LOL! You did a great job and the table looks festive and fun!

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Chari, I love your new jar and bunnies. You did a great job pulling it all together. I have been having trouble getting anything done around here. Dh has not worked for months due to the weather. He did work a few days last week. Now, we had a blizzard. I am getting so far behind. I want time to play and decorate. I hope you're having a great weekend.
Hugs, Terrie

Hey you... well you sure did a good job on this one!! I got your note the other day and it just made me feel soooo good, thank you so much for all your kindness!! Great post, enjoy your Sunday!!

HiHo said...

everyone has been so good about getting their houses set for Easter, I guess I better get on it...
happy pink, Heidi

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Chari, what a beautiful vignette. Both of the plates look so pretty in this vignette, but of course, that Bunny plate is so perfect for the Easter season. Your layered cloths look so pretty, and your apothecary jar looks great with the bunny and the candy (there wouldn't have been any candy left for me to put in the jar, as I would have eaten all of it before I got the lid on the jar! laurie
