Easter linens

 My favorite part of every holiday is setting the table.  Second would be creating the linens I use to set the table.

This year I used placemats and napkins I had made a few years back.  I haven't used them in a couple of years so they seemed new to me and I had even ironed them when I put away back then.  (Some times I really am one smart chick.)

The new part on the table were the place cards/goodie boxes.  I bought them at Joanne thinking they would fit a cupcake but they did not.  I decided to use them for tiny "Easter Baskets" and write people's name on them.  It was all fun and good until I was making the tissue paper flowers last night.  Then I may have hated them.  Maybe.

I even had a cover for the coffee table, yes!  I do like my past self every once in a while.  It is ready for the appetizers.

I am writing this on Easter morning but it will not post until Monday morning.  By then, all the colorful Easter bread should be
distributed to various guests along with cupcakes.  I found the boxes at Party City!

I have too much of everything and sometimes I wonder if the whole day is too much.  I am not sure anyone even cares about it all but me!

By the time you are reading it the day will be over and I will probably have decided that it was all worth it.  But right now, Easter linens or not, I am thinking spending the weekend in some vacation destination might be the way to go!  I could sew a quilt in memory of the Easiest Easter Ever! 


  1. You did a great job on Easter dinner. The table looked fantastic and the boxes of candy added a nice touch.

    1. Thanks, when it was all over I was glad I had done it.
