Easter Table Decor Suggestions

Easter table decor suggestions are in the spotlight this week.


Invariably at this season of the year my thoughts turn to the bunny discovered in our flower bed.

Cottontail, as he affectionately became known, instinctively knew when it was time for my husband to come in for the day.  He would sit in the driveway close to Dave’s parking spot waiting for him to arrive home.

Cottontail hopped to it, following his human best friend into the house. He would wait ever so patiently at Dave’s feet to be picked up and held.


One rabbit themed piece of decor seems to hop its way onto my Easter table decor suggestions in honor of Cottontail.
