This year I made most of my Easter decor. I have a bunny table runner that I made and also a thrifted table setting. You do not have to spend much money on seasonal decor.
When I was first married at the age of 20, in the 80’s, everyone decorated each room in their homes with a theme.
My kitchen was done in butterflies. I’m talking butterfly wallpaper, butterfly canisters, and butterfly kitchen towels. My friends all had a theme in their kitchens. Seriously, mushrooms were popular. Birds and flowers were also popular at that time. When a bride had a shower, she told everyone what her theme was.
Well, I am kind of obsessed with bunnies. I have to control my myself or my house will look like a newlywed from 1981. They just look so pretty, and they make my house feel like Spring.
I am changing my home decor to look more like Springtime, so that means setting my Easter table. First, I made a table runner with some burlap that I already had. Of course, it had to have a bunny on it.
I printed out a template of a bunny. I had purchased a soft car cleaning cloth from the Dollar Store to make the Bunny Garland that I posted earlier this week. I had enough left over to use for my table runner.
I pinned the template to the cloth and cut it out.
I started to sew it on, but instead I attached the bunny to the table runner with straight pins. My cheap self decided that I could take the bunny off after Easter, and still use it throughout the year.
My dishes, napkins, and Avon bunnies were all a recent thrift store find.
I have had the glass vases for several years, and I love that you can constantly change them up. I dyed eggs to match the dishes, and I love the way it looks.
I think my bunny table runner makes my thrifted table setting look beautiful!
lovely and very creative!

You and your cheap self did good here. I really like your bunnies. I love the versatility of the burlap and how it can be used all year long by changing out the accessories.

Sherry, Talk about simple! What a darling idea and I really like the bunny on the ends like you have it. I’ve got a few bunnies around our place, but we won’t be here for Easter this year so maybe next year I’ll add one of these to our table runner.

sherry, your table looks so pretty for spring and Easter. Love your bunny runner, and the vases with the eggs are lovely too. Oh I remember the 80s… I had stencilled hearts everywhere. I still love hearts, but not everywhere. lol. Thanks so much for sharing at Vintage Charm.

I love your table runner and your bunnies are too cute. I like the idea of being able to remove them after Easter and still use the burlap table runner.

The entire table is so fun and welcoming. I love burlap and so I’m a bit envious! Lol It’s amazing what you can create with a car wash cloth and a length of burlap! I love the runner, the entire setting screams fresh and spring!

This is so cute! I love the runner! And I remember the theme rooms of the 80’s and 90’s, too. My mother’s kitchen was decorated with apples (wallpaper and all) and my grandmother’s was hot peppers. Thanks for the trip down memory lane! So glad you stopped by Inspiration Thursday and shared your sweet bunny table.
Those are so cute! My mom totally had a themed kitchen too! My MIL is crazy obsessed with bunnies, she would love this.
