wee bit of spring

Love how the little bird matches the flowers. I last minute decided to do a brunch with my daughter.  she is a great cook and loves to do small crafts and gardening. Even though this week is Easter weekend I wanted to do something different.  It has been cold but sunny here and expect some rain. My forsythia is in bloom and spring bulbs are popping up dispite the 28 degrees last night.  Up north we can expect snow right uptil May. So far we have had very little.  All the shops are getting ready for the season.  Ocean liners are churning up the river. We are getting several new shops opening soon.  We are also waiting for the new hotel and casino to open in the future on the water front.  We have built a walk way along the river with seats and are building a gazebo for the bands that entertain us. each week. It is a very exciting year. We are a very cultural town. We are listed as 3 best small town in america. I hope to get pictures in the future to show you.

I used my pretty floral dishes that cordinate with the burgundy tablecloth and napkins. The green tableware brings out the green leaves on the dishes. One of the new shops is a cafe and bar with seating on the back deck.  So nice to watch the boats on the river.
I used a cute teapot for my floral centerpiece.  Those little marbles put a sparkle on the table. My birdies look like they like the attention.
My grand daughter gave me the cupcake boxes and I blinged them up with ribbon and bird and initial for place setting.  I will make chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
I never saw a pink butterfly but they sure look cute on napkin.I also used paper napkin for contrast.

Long view of table.  The menu undecided but I always keep it healthy simple but tasty.
My idea for my colors .This hand blown candle holder . I wish you all a Happy Easter and don't forget to say prayers for the people whom lost everything in the tornados in the south.

This is beautiful, Vernice!!!! I am just so in love with the china pattern!!! You matched it up well with the table linen, too! GREAT idea to use the second napkin for contrast!!! What a special table for a special brunch with your daughter!'re on the top of the heap for one of the best small towns in America, huh? That's great!!! I'm sure it makes putting up with the snow (up until May?!??!?! ReallY?!?!?!?) a whole lot easier to swallow. I would be freaking out if it snowed here in May!!! It will be great to see the photos of the new shops and other things that have been built. I hope that you have a peaceful and joyful Easter weekend, dearest Vernice. Ramon & I are just going to hang out here at home, sleep in late, and eat all the foods that are bad for us. THAT'S our idea of a holiday weekend! Take care, and stay blessed!

Pretty in Pink should be the name of this tablescape. What a lovely table at which to enjoy a family Easter dinner.
I wish you and yours a blessed and peaceful holy day.
