Happy Easter!

Hello All You Sweet Lambs! 

I know I am late but since it is still the Easter season,

I hope each one of you shared a blessed and beautiful Easter with your loved ones.

I invited a small group of family and friends for lunch on Easter day.

Here are a few snaps of my Easter dining table all ready for the lunch.

I love this tablecloth I purchased on etsy last year.  It has all my favorite colors and looks so cheerful! 

 I pulled out my mom's china, my milk glass goblets and some pretty salad plates I bought a few years ago.

I served quiche lorraine (pictured above), deviled eggs, asparagus with balsamic drizzle and a special pear salad recipe that my dear friend, Jennifer Hayslip was kind enough to pass to me!

Below is the centerpiece I made!

The centerpiece and a shot of my place settings.  I had to run out to get paper napkins because I couldn't find any other napkins in the house!

I spent several late nights working on this centerpiece, trying to make something similar to another piece that I fell in love with on etsy.

The topper on the side below is a vintage lavender prize ribbon with a vintage easter brooch.

I rolled and rolled a styrofoam cone with 6" lavender tulle and added ruffled crepe paper in aqua.  Then I added miniatures and pieces of vintage easter jewelry, buttons, beads, millinery, etc. with colored pearl straight pins and with hot glue.  

I had a big collection of fabric flower petals and used them underneath my  miniatures 

The topper on the side below is a vintage Easter floral pick with ribbons and trim.

 These pictures were taken earlier in the week.  After I took this, I kept adding flowers and glittered jelly beans and trims until it was completely covered!

 I believe I used most of the Easter miniatures and decorations I had left!

 The topper is a lavender vintage prize ribbon that I attached flower petals and a vintage Easter chick pen onto.

At "The Mall", my precious 2 year old grandson, Nathan got to sit on the Easter Bunny's lap.  

I took these from a distance, so they are fuzzy… like all good Easter bunnies should be!

Some kids are afraid of big animal costumes, but not our Nathan.  He ran up and hugged the bunny the same way he hugged the Chic-Fil-A cow last Christmas.

Last, I am sharing some "throw-back" photos from 1978.

This is my family.  I am on the left and my twin sister, Janet is on the right.  I was always shorter 
and we NEVER looked like twins!

This was taken at our Gram's house and the little terrier in the above picture was named Randiera!  Gram made our dresses.

I hope you enjoyed my Easter!
