Hello, Ladies! Happy April, or HOPPY April if tonight’s table plays into it!
I know many of you have those burlap bunny ear napkin rings, (Pier One)
but I have the ears and the bunny!
My sweet friend, Dani Pessoa, made these adorable bunnies. Stop over to her blog and see her beautiful napkin rings and tables. Her photography is wonderful! I love them, Dani, thanks!
I know red is not a color you think of when you think Easter. The checks are pink and red, so I could have added some pink, but I stuck with red and white.
I tried this red cloth, but decided to stick with the checks.
Red and white check cloth from linentablecoths.com, white charger, red scrolled plates, CTS, and white Filigree by Pfaltzgraff. I liked the scrolls on both.
White flatware via Horchow sale.
Egg cups and butter domes from Cmas Tree Shop.
The red glassware is making its debut tonight, on sale after Cmas at the Lenox Outlet, by Gorham.
The clear stems were in the clearance at CTS, $1.00
The centerpiece is a white wicker basket , fresh white roses and baby’s breath.
A stack of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in dotted parchment paper is the take home.
Last weekend we went in to see my gdau Lily, in her school play. They did “Meet Me In St. Louis.”
Since her 4 brothers had to sit through the 2 and a half hours of singing and dancing, and you know how little boys love that, I made some treats for them.
Dozens and dozens of choc chip and oatmeal raisin cookies.
I used a different recipe and was disappointed, should have stuck to tried and true. I had half of the recipe left, so the next day I adjusted it and was able to get the consistency we like. Thick and chewy. The earlier ones, not chewy enough. DH ate all his though!
I think with a big glass of cold milk they would be fine, though!
Made some apple oatmeal raisin crisp too. Peel and slice your apples, add cinnamon and sugar. Top with you favorite oatmeal raisin cookie dough and bake. Cookies and fruit all in one!
A little something for everyone!
Next week, APRIL 9th, is the APRIL Let’s Dish CHALLENGE. The subject is BIRDS~NESTS~EGGS. It has to contain at least one of those elements to link up.
Hope you can hatch some good ideas to celebrate April! The MAY challenge will be announced then too!
Thanks for stopping by!
