Spring Thyme Style Blog Hop Week 2

Welcome to week two of the Spring Thyme Style blog hop. If you are visiting from one of my blog friends, I am so glad you’re here. I hope that you will click the links at the bottom of the post to visit everyone on the “hop.” Special thanks to Tamyra at Positively Southern for organizing the tour.

Speaking of hop, I am sharing a “Hoppy Spring Table” today. I have quite a collection of rabbits and they hop all over our house in the spring!

I set the table in the sunroom where all of my orchids are blooming.

I kept it simple using a single orchid for the centerpiece. The plates are inexpensive metal picnic plates that I purchased in Paris. I’ve had the cranberry glasses for several years and love using them and the flatware is part of my ever growing collection of vintage silver plate.

The little green tea cups that are holding eggs are special treasures. My grandfather sent them to my grandmother when he was serving in the Pacific in World War II.

The pink flower in the corner of the picture above is a geranium that my mother gave me for Mother’s Day in 2015. I just deadheaded it before taking this picture. It blooms like crazy in this warm, sunny spot and it is still in the same pot that it came in.

The big orchid in the floor on the left is just getting ready to bloom. I have had that one for at least 18 years. I bought it on a trip to Hawaii but I can’t remember which trip I bought in on! All of my other orchids are blooming except for one.

Other rabbits are hopping around the room.

The small rabbit above sits at the base of a lamp and yes, that’s a rabbit tray too.

This terra cotta rabbit is about two feet tall and he sits at the base of my giant Norfolk Island Pine tree.

The two carved wooden rabbits above sit on the bookcases in the den.

The rabbit on the chest in the foyer is one of my favorites.

rabbit tureen

This rabbit tureen is another of my favorites. I’m telling you, rabbits do multiply quickly!

rabbit painting

The last one is painted on a wood tray and it was also a gift several years ago. I know that’s a lot of rabbits but they are spread out so as not to be overwhelming.

I hope that you are having some nice spring weather this week. Now hop on over to the other blogs for more spring inspiration.

Pat your orchid is simply stunning. Of course I was drawn to the enchanting metal Parisian plates. The green teacups are a true heirloom. May you enjoy a beautiful spring and a wonderful week!
