My Bunny's

Last week as I was cruising around blogland and checking out all the wonderful decor and craftiness I came across the blog of Deneen and her bunny topiary at Dreaming N Color  I love these bunny's check her's here and see the lovely tablescape. 

I loved these sooooo much that I had to attempt them.  So here goes my version
I went to Pier 1 and got the bunny's...aren't they the cutest things ever?  The next day I hit the $ store on my lunch and picked up the little pots..they are clay pots painted a soft green with the flowers already painted on them...that was nice of someone to do that *wink*
I found the floral foam at the same store and the little sparklie eggs came in a package of 12 with ribbon loops on them to hang on a tree.  I didn't know that the dollar store sold foam which made me happy because it's way more costly at Michael's.  I had to trim the foam down to get it into the pot after I cut it in half for the other topiary.  Added some grass on the top with a little hot glue and then added the eggs after I cut the ribbons off.  The first one I made I stuck the bunny in the foam after I put the grass on which was a pain...the second one I put the bunny in and then the grass and eggs.  I'm quite pleased with them...actually I LOVE them!  Hope I done you proud Deneen!!

Here they are on the table together
The copper tray on the table I found at GW for 2.00, the pitcher was another find...black as can be for 3.00...not as fancy as the other one but I love it just the same...it has a dent in it but I think it just adds to her charm.  The little crystal salt and pepper shakers I scored from the Salvation Army for .99 Woot!  Placemats are from Christmas Tree Shop at 1.00 a piece.  I almost have a tablescape I guess...lol

Thanks again Deneen!

Blessings.......
