an early easter dinner

We had a family dinner here today.  My parents, son, daughter and son in law were all here for an early Easter dinner.

I set the table in the morning so that I could get it just right.  We are in the midst of a fabulous sunny and warm Easter weekend.  A real surprise for us at the end of this month of March.

I picked up some white and pink spray roses to put in my new aqua jars from World Market.  The soft pastels just say spring to me.

Pastel fiestaware plates... white damask tablecloth...

And napkins... oops.  The napkins I really wanted were sold out at Pier 1 so I dug into my fabric stash for this cute gingham-y seersucker.  Since this was last minute I just ripped the fabric in napkin sized squares... a quick wash and dry and we were set.  Plus I kind of like the raw edges with my Grandma's vintage silver.

And for the Easter table, well some goodies too, of course.

Cute paper mache styled eggs... also from World Market.

Fun little chocolate bunnies with place cards pinned on the ribbon.

The centerpiece galvanized tray of roses nests inside another tray full of pink Easter grass.

Since the "girls" got the paper mache eggs full of goodies the "boys" got cute vintage looking buckets full of goodies... another World Market find.

Of course among the candies I tucked in a few other surprises...

It was a fabulous meal with family... just the way a holiday should be.  And tomorrow we'll head to my in-laws for another Easter meal.

So as I wind down on Saturday evening... here's a wish for a wonderful Easter Sunday for you and yours.

  10. I love your Easter table, Chris, especially the bunny placecards and the roses in the beautiful canning jars. How nice that you use your grandmother's silver, too. Jubilee is one of my favorite patterns, and I've collected a few pieces over the years.
