Happy Easter!

I hope your weekend was terrific; ours was simple and perfect.  When we came home from the beach on Wednesday, we were joined by my parents to celebrate back-to-back birthdays and then Easter weekend.  Easter week is always great, with flowers in bloom, temperatures typically mild, and a sunny weekend is a significant plus.  Easter always feels like the beginning of the year for me in many ways. Winter is behind us, spring is going strong, and the promise of His grace always feels fresh and new. 

We hosted Easter this year, and I loved adding fresh flowers and hyacinth bulbs to the table with my collection of marble eggs and some Lefton rabbits I found just a few days before.  I think the hyacinth bulbs will be a tradition for me as the smell is truly one of a kind.  Even walking past the dining room with that incredible smell made it feel special. I happened upon four Lefton bunnies while shopping with my parents on Saturday and decided to add them to the mix.  They are small antiques, so they mixed in well with the faux garland and the flowers. 

For more room, I mixed my Bordallo Pinheiro chop plates with our Ruban Blue salad plates and then added these darling bunny napkins from Carolina Dandy.  Aren't they precious?  I started with these napkins and then pulled other colors to add, ending up primarily with pinks, greens, and blues. 

I have been mixing glass colors for tables recently, and I like the twist it adds.  I added some antique green depression wine glasses with pink tumblers I found years ago.  Anything to add another layer of color. I didn't serve wine, so the drinks were used for iced tea and the tumbler for water.  And you know what?  Tea tastes even better served in a fancy glass!

My parents brought us a brown sugar ham, and I added roasted sweet potatoes and green beans, along with rolls, my mother's pea salad, and a large bowl of fruit for a delicious and perfect meal.  I also made a dozen deviled eggs and added some pickles and okra to the plate.  I finally found an egg plate I love, and it has room for other things, so pickled okra, gherkins, and olives were added to those yummy eggs.  My family loves deviled eggs; they are always the first to go.  

Happy Easter, spring, and all the love and grace to each of you! 🐇
