Easter Table

Easter Table

Between an early Easter and family birthdays,  my Easter postings are late, my apologies for my tardiness! Easter is probably my favorite holiday because, no gifts to stress over, and it affords me the time to be creative . I enjoy making individualized baskets, making chocolates, which this year has just become a little business!! Stunned over the fact that friends want to purchase them! what?!

The more the merrier! As the number of last minute friends with no plans grew, and a mix of tableware and placemats had to be changed. The table was simple this year. made yellow stripped napkins and yellow dotted hot pads then added a solid yellow paper napkin as well.  

Happy Birthday Roger & Happy Easter 2016!
