a pink and orange easter

{with a side of bunnies, chicks, & candy dots}

This year we celebrated Easter all weekend. Saturday, the little miss had her friend over for some cottontailed bunny cupcakes and confetti egg fun, and on Sunday we had our traditional dinner.

My theme did start out as pink but eventually I added orange, one of my favorite color combos! I wanted it to be pretty and bright, but also whimsical.

I decided to make homemade candy button placemats that doubled as a table runner when put all together. Yes, that's a lot of dots! 1309 to be exact. It was actually much simpler than it seems. After dinner, you could just pick at your placemat for dessert!

I finally found an excuse to get a small cotton candy machine for home; I had to complete my vision of a cotton candy "cottontail" on a white bunny cupcake, I mean, c'mon, let nothing come between me and my easter vision!

Throw in some fuzzy chicks, more colored rice, lovely orange burlap, bunnies made out of blown eggs, sparkly pink carrots hung from the light shade, strings of tissue paper tulips hung from the ceiling, some vintage easter nostalgia, wheatgrass planted in little porcelain eggs, pretty blossoms, and presto! our easter table(s) came together!
