Hello! On Monday we had SNOW all day long. I was having 4 girl friends for dinner that night but I stayed calm and set my table and got dinner cooked. I wanted to share my table here today. We DID have dinner, everyone made it here. The roads actually were fine so it worked out. Since it is Easter week, I set an Easter table. My centerpiece is these faux tulips, placed on my clear glass cake stand and surrounded by some tiny pastel eggs.
The tulip candlesticks are the perfect pairing. I have sweet candle rings for these candlesticks that I just found TODAY:( I am STILL finding things:):)
At each placesetting I had a small box with a bunny on top that can be filled with CANDY....or whatever you want! The place setting is on my cutwork tablecloth. I placed my basketweave chargers on the table first, then a cabbage leaf placemat, my polka dot dinner plate, my green and white patterned salad plate and a clear glass bowl.
Here is a shot of the whole table. There were 5 of us so we sat across from each other to make it cozier. I also switched out the middle place setting to the other side to make more room since that side is open to the foyer.
These chargers always remind me of an Easter basket so I use them every year. I just got the cabbage placemats, I had been SEARCHING for them and found them online.
I also had a bunny placecard holder at each place. And a tiny tealight holder.
These are the napkins I got at Yvonne's shower for her almost daughter-in-law (who she calls her daughter in love)!!!!
We all had a really nice evening. Our menu was:
Pasta with artichokes and spinach to which I also added chicken (I will share the recipe soon)
A broccoli casserole
A garden salad
And for dessert, wonderful cupcakes!!!!
The hostess provides the main dishe and each girl brings something. It makes it much easier for the hostess!!! We try to get together once a month at someone's house.
Thanks so much for your visit. XO, Pinky
