Funny Bunny Fern and Her Breakfast Tablescape

Happy Easter!  Join us as we add a bit of humor and whimsy to our Easter celebration.  Of course, this special holiday still retains its significant spiritual meaning.  However, here at The Little Yellow Corner Store, we seriously believe we need to also bring smiles and joviality to everyone who visits.  

To spread the opportunity for some hearty belly chuckles, The Little Yellow Corner Store once again hooked up with top tablescape bloggers/designers including our wonderful host, Rita, from Panoply at for her Spring/Easter Tablescape Blog Hop on Tuesday, March 29, 2022.  This hop like all of the others she previously and enthusiastically organized includes links to all of the designer's blogs and will include current tips and ideas for the Easter holiday.  (Remember the links to the designers listed below will be active the day of the hop on Tuesday, March 29, 2022, but not sooner. ) Don't miss out.....come back to participate in all of the fun and view the wonderful array of decor creations.

In addition, The Little Yellow Corner Store has agreed to participate for the first time in a hop from $10 on the 10th which begins on Sunday,  April 10, 2022.  The theme for this hop is Spring which may include the Easter holiday but is centered around the idea of it being a craft or inspiration of $10 or less in costs.     

So to grab your attention and generate a bunch of laughs, we need to include some playfulness and buffoonery to our table and Easter festivities.  Therefore, our first step in our table design was to combine a mixed-match of tableware patterns.  A bright yellow tablecloth filled with colorful pastel tulips and adorable white bunnies is the foundation of such frolic.  It seems to oddly but cheerfully contrast with the kooky Pottery Barn pink and yellow checkered dinner plates and peculiarly funny purple Easter egg salad plates.   They are all so very different, yet they work well in a wacky and extraordinary way.

Even the sweet bunny couple napkin rings replicates the adorable bunnies in the tablecloth.

How about some purple funny bunny ears from folded napkins?

Secondly, we also included an unexpected surprise visit from our furry friend, Funny Bunny Fern.  Fern is a well-dressed granny bunny who loves children of all ages.  She visits everyone's garden each year and leaves baskets generously filled with toys and candy for the children.  For adults, she spreads her magic for growing plants across the garden so that the tiny vegetable seeds like carrots, lettuce, parsnips, beets, beans and peas germinate in abundance.  She has a great sense of humor and knows that fresh veggies are great to use with a bunny butt cheese ball that she brought for her visit.  She says that the cheese ball bunny butt is fashioned from times when she had a slimmer butt of her own.  (Funny bunny....isn't she?)

Just looking at Fern with her round, wire-rimmed eyeglasses and her Sunday's best floppy hat with yellow butterflies, white lace, yellow ribbon and daisies, you can easily see she has a love and flair for gardening and everything Easter.  She surrounds herself in the garden among vegetables and flowers each day and works tirelessly to make it a showcase.  

Here is an up close photo of her very feminine and stylish hat.

Fern is so inspired by her favorite ageless, 100-year-young interior designer and famous fashion icon, Iris Apfel, that she wears similar over-sized round eye glasses.  Fern and Iris are not afraid to work with bold and bright colors, patterns and sizes.  

Fern, a granny bunny who is known for her generosity, left us a scrumptious faux breakfast of pancakes, fried eggs, bacon, sausage and, of course, some yummy mini pies for our grandson.  These darling felt play foods which she designed are part of an Easter gift basket for our little pea pod for his new play kitchen since he is much too young to enjoy eating chocolate and jelly beans.  There are enough breakfast items for him to share with another friend or with mom and dad.  The breakfast meal surely looks real, especially the curly bacon and the pancakes topped with butter, maple syrup, strawberries and whipped cream.  It certainly makes anyone laugh and feel hungry, doesn't it?  

Ready to whip up some real yummy breakfast?  Fry up some eggs and bacon, grab a cup of coffee or tea and continue on with the designers and their blog links below.  Each blogger will share their over-the-top Spring/Easter tablescape filled with impressive holiday ideas.

But before we go, Fern and The Little Yellow Corner Store want to wish you all a very blessed and memorable Easter holiday with family and friends.  God's Blessings to you and keep on smiling.
