Happy Easter! The Easter Bunny and the table-setting fairy just came to my house! Actually I feel asleep on the sofa earlier and woke up at 1:00, TV on, computer, dog and husband also sleeping on the sofa beside me! I sent Doug off to bed and then decided to set the table for breakfast. One less thing to do in the morning and I could use the breakfast plates to hold the Easter goodies. Bethany and Ian were asleep in their rooms so I did not want to wake them to get their Easter baskets.
Doug, Ian, and I had a WONDERFUL trip to Anderson, SC yesterday to visit with my aunt and two of my cousins and their spouses. It was such a lovely afternoon and I enjoyed myself so much. Such a perfect way to spend the day before Easter! But the long trip and a nice dinner on the way home contributed to my untimely nap!
I am using my pink Bordallo Pinheiro plates for Easter breakfast. I think the pink plates are perfect for Easter morning! I went with everyday stainless (can you say, goes in the dishwasher) instead of silver, though I did add stemmed beverage glasses. I didn't think about before this very moment, but I SHOULD have used my Yudu and made Easter napkins!
Above is another view of the table. Below is a view of Ian's plate before I added his DVD set and CDs to his placesetting. As my children have aged they prefer more "stuff", less candy, in their baskets. Bethany has a bit of candy and two gift cards. Aaron and Crissie, who will not make it for breakfast, will get a Zoku frozen pop maker, Zoku tool set, candy, a Longaberger Easter basket for Crissie to match Aaron's basket, and a gift card.
Finally, here is one more view of the centerpiece - embellished with Easter 2010 eggs and glitter eggs. I have had this egg tree in the entryway since completing the decorating. But I thought it could sit in the middle of the lazy Susan (a name I find so unfair!!) for Easter day.
