Hoppin' party-with a 2nd addition!

I began this tablescape with the focus 
of joining the 
over at A Stroll Thru Life but I also wanted to do a tablescape and join
 Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursdays!
I also wanted to do a St. Patrick's Day
post but fell behind, so I combined a couple of themes!

I figure it this way, rabbits would love to eat the clover and I think it looks very spring like so I included my table runner with it's clover or should I say shamrocks!
I have to tell ya this is a hoppin' party! These bunnies have been raiding nests and collecting eggs!  They've been captured 
and revealed under these cloches!
This little one is begging ever so nicely to 
get let out!  Don't worry I'll 
let her out soon!
This one fell asleep! I suppose it was from all that hard work collecting so many eggs!
This one has it made because she's got plenty of flowers to munch on!  
Isn't she a cutie!  
We're going to have some of the Irish Potato Soup we keep reading about and of course a traditional corned beef dinner!  
These bunnies have landed right on the napkins!
I think they look pretty cozy, don't you?
Like I said it's a hoppin' party!
My Bordallo Pinheiro dinnerware pieces add some garden magic, which I think is what attracted these bunnies in the first place!
Thank-you Marty for having your Easter/Spring Cloche Party- and Susan for Tablescape Thursdays glad
we could attend!
Can't wait to have our dinner!
Thurs. March 15th
I am adding a 2nd part to my posting. 
A friend of mine in New Mexico sent me some pictures of a tablescape she put together for St. Patrick's Day.  Betty's not a blogger yet, but I'm working on her!
 She pulled together a cute table and found some unique "greens" to use! I like these candles and I see some daises were included too!
Her pot of gold is adorned with this leaf
laid inside. I like her cute little basket which I think she put some crackers in for that little leprechaun!
  Ahh, I think he's been here...see his hat on the chair!
I like this leaf shaped bowl too!
The cool glass of water with lemon and lime looks real inviting!
Her linen napkin and the placemat share the same coloring which look great with the green.  I like her layered plates and the green cabbage leaf underneath is perfect for the traditional cabbage and corned beef dinners we so often make for the occasion!
I think she did a great job!
Now Betty we have to get you to start blogging too!

  6. How do you spell clever??? This is a great "two fer"!!! St. Patrick's and Spring all rolled into one very, very pretty table! Your logic re: the clover/shamrocks makes perfect sense and it all just melds together like magic. The bunnies are so sweet!!! The one that looks as if she's begging to get out is my favorite. She looks absolutely humbled, and I really like that about her. I love your pink cabbage bowls. I would love to find some in pink since that's my favorite color. I'm waiting for TJ Maxx or Marshall's to come through for me! This is really beautifully done, Liz. Swish!!!

  7. The bunnies are just darling. I love your cloches.

  11. How cute your bunnies are. Thanks for stopping to visit me...I am your newest follower. I had a great time visiting Richard.

  12. Your bunnies eating clover-very clever! And they are so cute! Linda

  13. Liz, You'd better watch those bunnies around your Bordallo cabbage bowls. You know how bunnies are.
    I love all your darling bunnies. Each has it's own personality and so cute under the cloches, and on the napkins. Love them all!

  14. Hi lovely lady.
    I didn't know what a cloche was on till I started blogging. I just adore your cloches with your sweet Bunnie. Such a cool idea adding this to your Beautiful Tablescape. Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my Hippity " Hoppity". I hope you have a wonderful week with your family.
    xxoo Diane

  15. Love all your cloches and the darling bunnies. What a beautiful table you have set.

  16. Liz, you have done a beautiful job, love the dishes and your cloches. Very impressive to me and thanks for stopping by my site and leaving a message. PS - I also keep all the Fitz and Floyd boxes.

  17. Liz, your table looks really inviting and the bunnies are so cute!

  18. Super cute and great commentary. So clever.

  19. Love that center one, Liz! It makes for a perfect centerpiece. That bunny is adorable!

  20. Hi Liz,
    You did an amazing job on this table. I love the details....The bunnies are adorable. Combining the two is an excellent idea. i didn't realize you had the cabbage dishes...beautiful...especially the pink. The table runner is lovely.

  21. So cute! Your bunnies are just adorable and I love your story too. I also love the color combination of your cabbage dishes. I haven't seen the pink mixed with the green before and think it really looks very springy. It's very pretty!

  22. Love all your bunnies. I'm sure they are happy to be in all that clover! What a pretty table. love the pink Bordallo bowls.. great table.. Happy St. Patrick's day, may your day be filled with many blessings. xo marlis

  23. Your table is just beautiful and I love your bunnies under glass! I have similar pink dishes and just love them. That pink bunny is just the cutest thing ever!

    I love that you shared your friend's table too. She did such a cute job. I need a pot of gold like that!

    1. Your friend's table is adorable! I'm also loving the pink dishes and pink with green is such beautiful combo for spring. Your centerpiece is so pretty. Love the pink bunny and everything else. Have a happy weekend.

  24. Both tables are beautiful. I am not a lover of pink, but those cabbage leaf bowls are such a pretty shade. You need to talk your friend into becoming a blogger so I can have one more table to drool over each week!

  25. I love the mix of St. Patty's Day and Easter on your table. You're right - bunnies do like clover! Everything is just so pretty and well put together. The pink bowls are probably my favorite part. Hope you can talk your friend into starting a blog. Her tablescape in lovely too.

  26. What a lovely, springtime tablescape! I just adore that bunny that is begging to be released from its cloche! Love your cabbage dishes with the pink bowls. Thanks for sharing your friend's tablescape, too.

  27. What a pretty tablescape! It's perfect for Spring. Your little bunnies look sweet under the cloches. Excellent job!

    Betty's table is also great. C'mon Betty, take the plunge, start a blog. I'd like to see what other pretty tables you will create!

  28. The bunny cloches are darling...I'm pretty sure that they think that they are Irish bunnies, don't you? Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

  29. My Dashbord thingie didn't tell me you had a post up and I almost missed this! Your bunnies are precious and so cutely displayed, and your Bordallo Pinheiro is gorgeous. Love the beautiful lace-trimmed tablecloth and the shamrock/clover runner!

    Congrats to Betty on a successful first tablescape. Very pretty! I love your Fitz & Floyd, and I recognized the Noritake right off because I've been wanting those glasses in green and blue (can't decide which to get)!
