Easter Table, 2016

Easter Sunday was a wonderful day: full of family, laughter, hugs, an egg hunt, flower planting, ham, tri-tip roast, scalloped potatoes, 7-layer salad, grilled asparagus, birthday cake (five family birthdays in April!),  bubbles, sidewalk chalk and games. Easter and the three days before it were so jam-packed with things to do, that I only had time to take a few pictures of my Easter table before everyone arrived, but I wanted to share them with you today:

Here's my Easter Table:

The place settings consisted of my Mikasa Zen chargers, my Lenox Butterfly Meadow dinner plates, napkins recently purchased from Bed, Bath and Beyond (I wanted to go with pink this year instead of the napkins that match my Butterfly Meadow tablecloth: just for a change), Butterfly Meadow napkin rings, my late mother-in-law's Roger's silverplate in the Heritage pattern and to top it off a little "nest" filled with Cadbury Eggs. My place cards were a gift from my cousin who makes the loveliest cards for each special occasion. Thank you, Karen!

The highlight of my centerpiece is also a gift from my cousin. She made this lovely faux flower vase for me and I knew it would be the focus of my Easter table. Don't you love the colors? I flanked the vase with glass candlesticks from a late dear friend, and then added my Fitz and Floyd salt and pepper shakers.

I hope your Easter was filled with warmth and joy and the hope that this spring time of year represents.
