Happy Easter from us! We had a great day, with both our little family and friends. We started out with brunch at our place, just the three of us. Neither of our parents could make it this Easter and many friends had other plans, so we did a cozy meal for us.
I had a lot of fun putting together the table this year. My first "tablescape" if you will :).
I picked up the salad plates and napkins at Target, which were the basis for the rest of the setting. I found the round placemats at The Christmas Tree Shop/And That for $1.99 each! I used my most precious glasses, ones that my Aunt Kay gave to me for either high school or college graduation (Aunt Kay, if you are reading, do you remember which it was?). I've always had a strong love for old things. And, the mossy looking chick and bunny are from Michaels. Hope & I saw them over break & knew that they had to come home with us. Even Glenn said that he thought that they were cute.
One of my favorite traditions at Easter is that I always buy fresh flowers for the table and create a special arrangement. Wegmans has a wonderful selection during the Easter weekend & I had a hard time choosing which to bring home. I ended up with huge blue tinted hydrangeas to go with the tablesetting, pink roses and white stock. I put them in a glass vase that I placed into a basket that usually holds my curling irons. Creativity is the name of the game! I must stop and look at the flowers about a hundred times a day.
I hope that all of you had a wonderful Easter!
