Easter blessings

In honor of the men fighting for our countries freedom.
Easter, for little ones is all about bunnies and sweets.  I agree if they are told why they are celebrating. A good time to explain to them about Jesus in simple kid talk.
A little sweets for after dinner.
Cute egg cups with chick hatching.  Can hold real hard boiled eggs for snack
Sweet little bunnie to play with
place setting for kiddies
cute salt and pepper
just enough to satisfy sweet tooth
front shot of kids corner
tweaking changed table a little

a little sweets for the adults
I wanted to use pastels for Easter and the begining of spring.
Love these plates. I got 6 for 5.00
Pretty scalloped place mats from my thrift store
There is cut work on the corner but doesn't show.
Better view of place setting
Just had to get my birds on buffet
Confetti cake with sprinkles made with sugar and food coloring.      I hope you all have a great Easter with friends and family. I know I will. Menu will be the traditional ham dinner with all the trimmings. yum
Long view of table.  It is getting dark out so lighting is bad. One thing I need to do is learn more about taking good pictures.  Oh well can't know everything. God bless you all.
A little touch of spring .  I have used this a lot it makes me happy.

I went with the red white and blue to match with tablecloth. I used my hand made checkered napkins and cute little gingerbread cookies.
See the place mats.  They are made of textured wall paper. leak proof throw aways.
My favorite tablescapes are the kid's corner.  I found the large cook gingerman at my thrift store for 3.00.  He became my theme.  I had fun looking for more to add.  Found the mama and babies. Liked the red  for tablecloth and assessories.I had the cups with gingerbread man on it.It's all coming together.

50th anniversary

A little drink with dinner.  Menu ,shrimp cocktail, fruit tossed salad, roast chicken and mixed veggies with cheese sauce.
Love ice cream with chocolate and strawberries
Yum Yum I always love fruit

Angel food cake 
He's my angel now.

Sprayed stems gold and added ribbon
Two love birds me and you
my surprise gift 
Leaving the parsonage being different religions we could not get married in the church.  Reception at his home .
Two love birds in the flowers
The final version . I used my best china .  Notice the silverware I sprayed the handles gold to match the chargers.
the original version
this on side table
It started out like this
I had my 50th anniversary many years ago but one of my regrets is that we didn't celebrate an intimate one together so this is in honor of  the love of my life.  Did you ever do your tablescape over and over again til you were satisfied.  Well that was my problem putting this together . I wanted it to be special. My son and grandson will be joining me so food was a big order to get it done in time to post
