It's getting REALLY close to Easter, ya'll  so I started gathering up different items to use for an
for Mr. Sweet and myself.

I gathered all the little rabbits around...

I decided to use this off white throw for a cloth...

When I started looking for PLACE MATS, 
I remembered that they were all in my vintage wicker suitcase.....
and see that cute little brass LOCK...
I CAN NOT FIND THE KEY.....bwaaaaaaa
I'm sure I put it somewhere SAFE so I wouldn't lose it during our big move....

I have a few mats out but not any that I wanted to use for this special brunch.  
O, well....

 A lot of you know that I adore the beautiful and fun
paper plates...
especially for special times of the year.

Aren't these just beautiful...
full of lovely flowers and a butterfly. 

So, for this EASTER BRUNCH,
I will use these as gorgeous chargers.
Yes, ma'am...
these are perfect for us and I love 'em.
I've never been a paper plate snob...:)

...and just take a look at these adorable

The most precious little rabbit paper napkins that I love so much,
I almost want to frame one.

 This little brown rabbit has resided at SWEET NOTHINGS
for several years.
That cutie-pie bottle came from LAURIE ANNA'S in Canton, Tx.

Here is another  little rabbit  and his carrots are salt and peppers.
My good friend, MARTHA, gave this to me several years ago and I think
that they are simply adorable.

And, I couldn't leave out my favorite little rabbit pillow.

 The beautiful stem glasses that were my mother's.

She picked them out sometime in the late 60's and
my brother, dad and I bought one of two for her for every special occasion.
She loved them so much and so do I.

I have no idea what the pattern might be....must google it sometime.

I am using my green handled flatware...
it seems to go with so many settings.

Aren't those little eggs adorable in that miniature nest....?

Oh, my....I almost forgot my little  FAUX Chocolate bunny....


 Cheesy Scrambled Eggs, just the way we love them...
Brown Sugar Ham
Cherry Pastries
 (my eyes roll back in my head with the first bite of these)


 I have some more beautiful roses to DRY...

 Thanks for hanging with me long enuf to get thru

Have a blessed and happy Easter.

XOXO, bj 

I'm so glad I did this brunch early ...I later came down with pneumonia and
we will have to cancel Easter at our house this year. *heavy sigh
I don't remember a time that we didn't have a family Easter luncheon 
at our house....but so many other blessings to be thankful for, this is not going to make me sad.
Thank you for prayers to get me over this pneumonia.....xoxo

  11. Pretty table, and the food looks yummy. Take care of yourself. Pneumonia is not something to take lightly.
    Enjoy the weekend!

  12. Your table setting is beautiful. I love all of your bunnies. Everything looks so Spring-y. Please rest and take extra good care of yourself so you can heal quicker. I hope you will be feeling better very soon.

  13. How does your faux chocolate bunny survive. It certainly looks edible. And my mouth was watering when the real food appeared.
    Be Well.

  14. I hope you get better, have a great Easter

  15. Table ware to dream about, bunnies galore, green glasses, and so much more, but the paper napkins, I would photo, frame and make one for the wall, totally picture perfect. The lung stuff, hope a doctor's visit is planned, lots of rest, and wishes to get better fast. Easter wishes to you and yours, from NZ.

  16. Pneumonia . . . you poor dear. Do take care, get well . . . so you'll be tip top for brunch sometimes soon.
    I wonder if your green is Fostoria Coin Glass? Very pretty . . .
    Happy Easter bj . . .

  17. I think the pattern of your green glassware is 'moon and stars'. In the 1960s these were a repro of an earlier glassware. I had some, too -- don't know what happened to them. I loved them then and I love them now. Wish I still had mine, which were amber!! Hope you get to feeling better. Sally

  18. Everything is so pretty...what a shame about the lockout but you did good!

    Happy Easter and feel well soon!

  21. Dearest bj; What a fabulous table setting with gorgeous photographs♡♡♡ I'm so sorry to hear you suffered for pneumonia, prayers for quick recovery.
    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*

  22. BJ!! I love it. I love it. I love it!!! You serve the most delicious looking breakfasts ever! And...the tablesetting, the bunnies, those green stemware glasses of your Mother's....just gorgeous! I just so enjoyed this post! Wishing my Texas friend a very blessed Easter day! Big hugs!!!!

  23. Happy Easter sweet friend. I hope you are feeling better. Love your table and all your cute bunnies. We are on baby watch here, I'll do Easter Dinner if we aren't at the hospital having baby girl!! Tiger is so excited and ready to meet his Sister. Tue is his birthday also.

  24. You make every day special, BJ. Praying for the last remnants of that nasty pneumonia to leave so that you can concentrate on more good times. Will you be able to go to the big house for Easter and you know what I mean! (Your son and daughter-in-law's not jail.) Many Easter blessings to you and your family. He is Risen!

  25. BJ,
    I could pick that lock for you... Seriously I could! OK where to start, first up I love, adore and smiled with your sweet header. Awwww Brown Bunnies are my favorites. I even have a couple of Brown Bunnies that visit me when I'm gardening. They are not afraid and wind up sitting on our stone wall watching me. Yes, I on occasion give them a carrot or two or three!!!! What can I say, I have a fondness for Bunnies. You have an adorable collection displayed. As always I admire and enjoy your creative photography. But BJ I'm concerned about you having pneumonia and I'm sending bunny kisses and well wishes your way. Enjoy your brunch with hubby, I think some horseradish might kill some of those germs!
    Happy joyous Easter

  26. YUM,YUM,YUM! I love the little bunny holding the salt and paper shakers - too cute! Happy easter and Happy Spring!

  27. I knew you had two shots, but didn't know it was for Pneumonia. That's just terrible! I will pray for speedy recovery, my friend.
    Your table looks gorgeous and I have never been a paper plate or napkin snob, either. They're are so many pretty patterns out there and it sure saves on cleanup!
    Happy Easter to you and Mr. Sweet! Get better soon!

  28. I am so glad that you are not a paper snob cause those dishes and napkins are adorable!!! Your food looks SO good, as always. I wish I could come over and share!!!! Praying you get better, pneumonia is horrible. XO and Happy Easter!!!

  29. Dear bj ... sorry that you are still sick. Will be praying for you. Glad you feel up to making such a beautiful and tasty Easter brunch for you and Mr. Sweet. Looks so delicious and your decorations are just so beautiful and enjoyable. The Easter rabbit napkins would be a favorite and of course, love the beautiful green stemware that was your Mom's. Need to look for the plumcots ... sounds so good.
    Would love to know how you make the glazed walnuts and cranberries.
    Have a restful Easter Sunday and get well soon.

  30. First - Prayers and well wishes for healing. I hope you will not over do. Rebound pneu is not fun. You table is so inviting and the brunch. Oh. My. Goodness. Yes please! You have such sweet whimsical bunnies to share. How come I never find such great paper plates? I would be hoarding some of those napkins. I wonder if they could be decoupaged onto something? Happy Easter! Get well soon.

  31. I was so concerned reading this...thinking you were doing too much with pnuemonia...then I see that you did it early. Everything is just beautiful and the food has made me hungry! :) I love a good breakfast after I've been up awhile. First thing is coffee! I do hope you're taking good care of yourself!

    Sending you healing and hugs ~

  32. Oh, BJ, I hope you are feeling better and were able to enjoy a little bit of Easter fun. All your bunnies are adorable and that food looks good enough to eat!..Happy Easter..Judy

  33. a table set with so much love, it matters not if the plates are paper or china. i prefer paper so the hostess has more time to enjoy the day!! your table is so lovely, so makes me want to replicate it!!! i use to do so much decorating for every holiday but now that my boys are gone, my passion is waning!!!!

  34. I hope you are on the mend sweet friend! This table is so pretty, I never see paper plates as pretty as these! I love your mother's stemware, absolutely gorgeous and a beautiful shade of green. Sending my love and wishing you a blessed Easter.
