Easter Preparations

   I've been busy getting ready for our Easter celebration. I love setting the tables early so that everything is done ahead of time in ;case I am missing something that I can run out and get quickly. We are having 13 or 15 people coming after church for a ham dinner. 
   I made place cards so that I know where everyone will be. I used my Sizzix bunny die cut. I cut a 3 1/2 by 4inch white card from card stock. I stamped  Happy Easter from Print Works Collections. I punched out the flower using  my McGill punch  and added  black enamel accents for the center. I drew the stem free hand.
Ready for the table.

My computer did a nice job with the names.

Table 2
   I love buying flowers for the table.Mom bought these pink geraniums which went well with the china on this table. The bunny I purchased in North Carolina at the Indoor flea market. Love how the bunny is wearing a pink sweater. This is one table in front of the window in the breakfast nook.
   The second table has tulips in a pitcher that I purchased in Maine at a shop in Windham, I believe it was called Sisters. A lovely place that I intend to go back and shop some more. The dishes belong to my Mom. They go nicely with the red tulips.

      I added items I  have around the house. The bird's nest, and timepieces seemed to give the table a vintage look. The lace doily on top of a green runner gave the table a little more vintage look and a splash of color. I really like how it came out.

                It will be nice to be with family. We have a new member : Amelia Collette born to my niece in New Jersey. Can't wait to see her in person soon.
  I hope you have a lovely Easter with your family in the celebration of our Lord's Resurrection.  Happy Easter!
