The General died recently of lung cancer, and we felt a tremendous loss. We hadn't seen them much as of late, because we were caught up with raising our children, work, and everyday life. But when we reflected back to our youth, and remembered the fun times we had listening and dancing to this great band, we couldn't help but feel a great loss. Some of their greatest hits included "Give me just a little more time", "Pay it to the Piper", and "You've got me dangling on a string". The General won a grammy for writing the song "Patches", performed by Clarence Carter. But one of his greatest works and the one he was the most proud of was called "King of Kings". If you get the chance, listen and read about this talented man.
Ok, so what does this have to do with tablescapes?? Not exactly sure, but thinking of Easter and the most important of all religious holidays, I couldn't help but remember this compassionate man who shared his wonderful talent with me.
Bunnies and Easter eggs are the stars for today!
Fun egg-shaped tulip plates (Home Goods) sit atop white Gibson Marquis dishes. Round blue placemats take the place of chargers. Fairly simple silverware, by Towle, finish off the place setting.
Miss Bunny is decked out today and watches over her vintage basket filled with Easter eggs. Miniature bunnies peer out from a pink lantern (Tuesday Morning.)
Mr. Bunny isn't showing up empty handed. He is coming to the party with gifts in hand!
A friendly little bunny waves to us from this green lantern, purchased at Tuesday Morning.
A vintage vase holds white azaleas.
And in the center, white bunnies play ring around the rosie!
Can't forget the napkins, held by little bunny napkin rings.
The crocheted doily was made by my Mother.
Pink stems are Noritake.
Time to say goodnight. Thanks for visiting A Perfect Setting, hope to hear from you soon! We are headed down to Myrtle Beach for a week while our son spends his spring break in Sweden. Maybe we will hear some good beach music while we are there. We will be thinking of our friend, General Johnson and wishing we could give him just a little more time...
