Carrots & Cottontails

Are you ready for a little Springtime fun?

Oh good, because today is the Spring Tablescape Blog Hop!

A big Thank You to Rita @Panoply for being our hostess

Welcome friends, readers and visitors!

It’s all about carrots and cottontails here today

as we celebrate Spring and bring the bunnies out to play!

This carrot table runner on Amazon caught my eye

It was such a low price, I just had to buy!

I’ve always had a big thing for carrots, I don’t know why

As you can see, I have quite a supply!

This table is perfect for Easter or Spring

It’s so cheerful and bright, it makes my heart sing!

Cabbage leaves hold the plate stacks

With flower ringed napkins and flatware to match

The chairs are dressed up with soft oranges sashes

They look so pretty you just might bat your eyelashes!

Here is a rear view from above

This table is just bursting with bunny and carrot love!

    Jenna, the carrot runner is the perfect foundation for your fun carrot collection! Cabbage leaf placemats are ideal for the bunnies to munch on (lol)! We have a lot of evidence of bunny visits to the garden the past few days. Orange and green are happy spring colors! Of course I always smile at your poems. You are so talented and it is a treat to hop with you!

    Happy Spring, it is warming up today!

  9. So much carroty fun in your table setting. It made me smile. Really enjoyed how you tied the carrot color into your place setting. The runner is the perfect accompaniment to tie everything together. the bunny centerpiece with it’s veggie offerings works really well with the rest of the table. Happy Spring!

I can see why it was difficult to resist. The orange sashes are a lovely addition to your dining chairs and add a nice pop of color. The carrot cake looks scrumptious! Wishing you a most blessed and happy spring!

  15. Rita C. says:

    Oh, Jenna! This is just so bright and cheerful. I adore the burst of springtime fresh color the orange and green combination delivers! That runner is just too cute, and perfectly placed for great visibility. Love it all. Boy, I wish we could get into each other’s storage and trade off some of these great table pieces. I would have a blast in yours. You may or may not be having some artwork missing in the process! Thanks for bringing your artistic talent to the table, along with your fun puns. It’s so fun having you as part of the group. Happy Spring!

    • Aw, thanks so much Rita! Yes it would be fun to share our stashes! Thank you for supporting my Society 6 shop! Our hops are so much fun, thank you for the hard work and time you put in to make them happen ❤️

    Jenna, Your table is so very cute! Love your rhyming as always and the orange and green theme. Your centerpiece is charming and goes so well with your plates and cabbage leaves placemat. How sweet the little bunny pedestal dishes are filled with carrots.
    Your cake looks so festive all decorated with carrots. Butter rum cake sounds good.
    Love your happy tablescape full of spring and Easter elements.
    I had to attend a luncheon today so I am late commenting. Busy day!
    As always it is a treat to blog hop with you.

  17. Ricki Treleaven says:

    Jenna, you know how much your artwork inspires me. I love how it’s featured on this post, and I can see why the carrot table runner caught your eye. It’s fantastic! I love all the carrots on your table for spring along with the bunnies. I especially like the little bunny cupcake plates and the orange napkins in the cabbage napkin rings. I love, love, LOVE how this post rhymes! You are multi-talented, My Friend! 😀 Happy Spring!

  18. lghiggins says:

    I always smile when your poetic pen comes out. It just adds to the whimsy of the food and art.

  19. Nancy says:

    I am loving your carrots! They are so fun and colorful. The table runner was perfect for this tablescape along with your centerpiece. A smile comes to my face. And then when you rhyme… I smile even more. Happy Spring!

  20. Kim says:

    Jenna, I love your carrots and cottontails table – its just so cute! I don’t know why, but I love orange and green together, especially in spring and especially with carrots and bunnies. The table runner is adorable and what a great find. The dinner plates are very unique and I don’t think I’ve seen anything like them before. Your bunny holding the carrot is so sweet and looks perfect in your centerpiece. As always (and like Nancy), your verse brings a smile to my face. Your carrot cake looks delish. Happy happy spring to you!!

  21. Kim says:

    Oh, no. My comment disappeared somewhere. Let me try again. Jenna, I love your carrots and cottontails table – it is just so cute! I don’t know why, but I love green and orange together, especially in spring, and especially with bunnies and carrots. Your carrot table runner is adorable – what a great find. Your bunny holding the carrot is the centerpiece looks so happy surrounded by carrots. Your dinner plates are really unique and I don’t think I’ve seen them before. Love the napkins and napkin rings too. And, like Nancy, your verse always brings a smile to my face. The carrot cake looks delish. Happy happy spring to you!!

  22. Jenna, I so enjoyed reveling in your abundance of carrots! They were all so cute. I loved that you used an orange and white palate, accented with green. Orange is such an underused color — yet it’s so fun and spirited. The white bunnies are charming and the place settings pretty. Can’t wait to sit here and share some rum/carrot cake. 😉

  23. Since I love the color orange, carrots are also a favorite of mine as well. I also love to eat them. Your chair bows are super cute and add a touch of pretty to the entire table. Happy Springtime!

  24. Sarah says:

    Jenna, the carrot runner is perfect for your table, and I love the way you have used it on a round table. Orange is one of my favorite colors to use as an accent. This table is proof perfect that orange is a star. Of course I love the rhyme too. You consistently make me smile. Happy spring, dear friend!

  25. Jenna, such a fun and whimsical table. Love the carrots and cottontail themes. Carrots galore makes for a fun table. Love your new table runner. It fits right in with your carrot theme. The cabbage placemats are perfect with the Pfaltzgraff Napoli plates. A lovely bunny with carrots makes for a pretty centerpiece. You know I love to dress my chairs like you did. So sorry I couldn’t join you on this Easter tablescape blog hop. I was vacationing in Kauai. Happy spring!

  26. Kari says:

    Jenna, I adore your poetry and I also happen to love carrots! What a bargain your runner was and a great place to start your styling. Your collection of carrots are varied and fit right in with your beautiful rabbit centerpiece of veggies. (Holding a real carrot?) The Pfaltzgraff orange rimmed dinner plates caught my eye as they couldn’t of been more perfect in color. The orange chair sashes are the icing on the cake…which by the way looks scrumptious with even more carrots in the icing. And you are right, the cake can be of any flavor as long as the outside decorating reflects the theme. Now I will hop on to the next post and do my reading, admiring and commenting…I am just a bit slow these days but getting much better. Happy Spring my friend and Blessings always.

  27. Marsha says:

    Jenna, I am so delighted to see your carrot and cottontail table. I love the use of orange and it makes it so different than using the traditional pastel colors of Easter. Bright and cheerful! The carrot runner works perfectly to show off your bunny with your lovely collection of carrots. Of course, carrots are so good for one’s health, including the gorgeous carrot cake you included in your post. Yum! Your plates are so unique and really showcase the lovely color of carrots. Fun, playful and so spiritedly memorable. Happy Easter!

  28. Maureen says:

    Jenna, I love your Carrots and Cottontails theme, and you have really knocked it out of the park! I love the different textures and colours of your carrot collection! That carrot table runner is darling, and the little footed plates with the bunnies are adorable too! Wishing you a very happy spring!

  29. Rebecca says:

    Jenna, I just love the orange and green color scheme and the abundance of different carrots on your table! My favorite touches are the cabbage napkin holders and the orange chair sashes. The carrot runner was a great find, too! It was fun to “hop” with you again. Happy Spring 🙂

  30. Denise/My Home of All Seasons says:

    Oh my gosh Jenna! Could there be a cheerier table anywhere? I think not! I also have a thing for carrots and your centerpiece is just adorable! I’m pretty sure I NEED that bunny too. I love the color orange and you’ve used it beautifully with your runner and plate stacks. Carrots and Cottontails has brightened my day. Thanks so much for sharing.

  31. Love your table!! The colors are stunning. The runner is adorable (you could paint one just as cute!!). Happy spring!

  32. Chloe Crabtree says:

    Oh my goodness, how adorable your entire table is! At first glance I thought maybe you painted that table runner. It is so cute, and you are right, I can’t believe it is just $5.99! I think it will be finding a way to my house! Your carrots are all so cute, and so are the little napkin rings! Happy Easter!!

    • Thanks so much Chloe! When I bought the runner it was $9.99 which I thought was a steal and then they marked it down to $5.99, that is amazing! Happy Easter and Spring to you!

  33. Julie says:

    This is the cutest Easter table Jenna. I love how you made the centerpiece and the colors of the table are so pretty. You are now ready for Easter.
