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!
