Tablescapes, “Nest Eggs”

I am participating in a spring challenge at Cuisine Kathleen’s this week, the tablescape must include eggs, nests or birds.


I had some bird nests in my winter decor stash, and even though they are painted with gold, when they nestled in by the High Cotton tree, they blended perfectly


I gathered brown and white eggs, ribbon and twine


and “decorated” the eggs with plain and fancy~


I used a large piece of bright pink burlap for a table topper and brown rattan chargers

I couldn’t wait to use my “High Cotton” Tree


There are “nest eggs” hiding all over the place


pink paper shreds make a soft nest


for jelly beans and  salted caramel mini cupcakes


A golden “egg” indeed!


Ribbon wrapped eggs snuggle in nests by the tree


Eggs of all shapes and sizes are scattered about


Bunnies, and cotton and eggs everywhere!


If you look closely you can see a bunny hiding in the cotton tree


Peeking out, hoping he won’t be discovered

There are a lot of Curious Bunnies around our house~

“Gigi, what is all this stuff?” asked Super Boy


“Are those jelly beans?” he asked, hopefully…

“I’m not sure,”  I said, maybe we should taste one or two after dinner…


“I think that’s a great idea!” he said, “And we’d better try those white things! I bet they’re candy too!!”

“Okay,” I said, “But just make sure you eat all your carrots before the bunnies see them~”


“Dad! DaD! DAAAAAAD!,  Is my dinner almost ready?  I’ve got to eat my carrots quick before Gigi’s bunnies see them!!”


Thanks for visiting, I hope Spring is blooming in your neighborhood!

Please hop over to Cuisine Kathleen to see all the spring tables gathered there!

    Sounds like you’re having lots of fun with the kids:@) Cute table, I love your little hiding bunny!

  2. Cute Easter table, I love the cotton tree!

  3. You have outdone yourself again! I love the tree and especially those goblets with the bunnies. Your grand is too cute — they say the most interesting things at that age, don’t they?

  4. Marigene says:

    Love the cotton boll tree…and the bunny peeking out. The pedestal plate is adorable.
    Have a great week, Jenna.

  5. Everything is adorable. The bunny peeking out of the high cotton tree and all the other bunnies at your house know they living the high cotton life. Darling curious bunnies climbing up the compote. I’m smiling at your darling table. What a treat!

  6. Candy S says:

    The peek-a-boo bunny is so sweet hiding in the cotton tree. The pink runner, the napkins and napkin rings, and the hoppin bunny glasses are perfect for a beautiful Easter tablescape.

  7. Pam says:

    This is the most creative tablescape! The cotton bolls tree is just the best idea and very rustic. I love the use of the bunny and egg goblets maybe my favorite. The pink and white color scheme really gives a pop to your tablescape!
    Have a wonderful week!


  8. Liz @ Infuse With Liz says:

    Well goodness you sure got creative! Love all of it! The cotton tree is pretty darn cool! I enjoyed looking at the details- fabulous job!

  9. Kitty says:

    Will Jenna, if that’s not the prettiest in pink table!! I love your cotton tree and it just makes the most spectacular centerpiece. The little bunny hiding in there is just adorable. I love all your pretty touches.

  10. Ellen says:

    Love that idea for napkin rings. You pulled together a great table for Kathleen’s challenge.

  11. Kim says:

    What a cutie pie, that grandson of yours! You probably can guess how much I love that cotton boll tree. 🙂 Also, your bunny napkin rings are adorable. I’ve been looking for some Battenburg napkins or something similar, so yours caught my eye! Your pink accents are very pretty. OK, and may I say that those cupcakes look amazing?!?! (Slurp.)

  12. BettyMarie says:

    What a cute and sweet table!

  13. Kathleen says:

    So cute! Love the cotton tree. I had one piece of it in my desk for years. The kids were amazed to see what cotton looked like. You know we are cotton deprived in the North!
    Love all the colors and details! Thanks so much for taking part in the challenge with your nests and eggs! Now explain to me why the Easter bunny brings eggs! 🙂

  14. So cute! I bet I’d be rushing to eat my carrots, too, if I knew all those treats were for the taking after dinner! I’ve been unusually good this year in not buying any Easter candy to have around the house. This will probably cause me to fall off the wagon! 🙂 (And I just want to scream looking at and craving those salted caramel cupcakes!!!!!!!!!!!)

    You did a really great job with the whole theme! Your high cotton tree make a terrific centerpiece item for this. The bunny peeking out is just so cute.

  15. Hi Jenna, I love the high cotton tree and the story of your precious little guy and the treats. I was down south before Christmas and saw fields of cotton ready to be picked. Your tree really looks like the fields. Your table is so pretty in pink and those bunny napkin rings must have been a big hit too! Linda

  16. Sarah says:

    What a fun, whimsical table. Your high cotton tree is one of the cleverest centerpieces I’ve seen. I want to make one. 😉

  17. Bev says:

    So pretty…love your centerpiece.

  18. Angel says:

    How lovely. I love your cotton tree, what a great idea. Beautiful

  19. lulu says:

    Pretty in pink, Jenna, and I love your high cotton tree. Except for the fact that I know cotton doesn’t grow on trees, I’d think it the real thing!

  20. Love the added detail of cotton! So cute 🙂

  21. Adorable table. Thanks for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

    Your table is so whimsical. where did you get the idea of a cotton tree? I am obsessed with cake plates can you please tell me where you got the mini bunny and bird cake stand? I want to steal them from you (just kidding but really thinking about it) can you let me know ? great colors.Susie

  23. Mary says:

    So fun Jenna! I love the pink burlap as a base for your High Cotton tree and your nest eggs! The glue dots are a brilliant idea to help hold the ribbon in place 🙂

  24. Christine says:

    You definitely met the challenge in flying colors. What a fun table!…Christine

  25. Linda says:

    Pretty cool cotton tree with the peeking bunny. Love your climbing bunnies cupcake stand. This is one very fun and creative table.

  26. Oh, Jenna! You’ve done it again. It’s so fun! Thank you for sharing. You will be one of the features tomorrow at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Hope to see your prettiness again tomorrow at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
