I never had potato pancakes before but everyone loved them. The mushroom quiche was my person favorite. And Danny loves it when I make jam. Aunt Mikki brought the fruit salad and St. Julian’s Passionate Peach Spumante a.k.a. the best thing I’ve ever had to drink. If you haven’t tried it – you must!
It’s imperative that things looks pretty but I also want to keep costs low. Since we don’t have my ten person dining table (yet) I had to improve with seating. Thankfully, I was able to seat everyone together. Mom bought me a tablecloth for the table she’s let us borrow all month! I love the color and it complimented the banner I made using leftover supplies from the kid party.
I spent an hour searching for the best bunny napkin tutorial online. Our Best Bites was the winner by a long shot! I pulled out the fancy china that I love more than anything else I own. It’s 100 year old Oxford and completely gorgeous!
I wanted something special for the table but I didn’t want anything tall because it interferes with conversation and I wanted something that I could space out along the table. After a couple trips to florists, I finally settled on potted flowers. They’re simple, beautiful and I can transplant them into the garden I want to plant outside. The vases are from the dollar store and I think it was the the perfect addition to the table.
I saw this Easter egg garland idea on Pinterest and thought it was perfect for the banister. Mom had a ton of little eggs and I picked up some larger ones and ribbon at the dollar store. It took a little time to put it together but there was a 50th anniversary marathon for General Hospital on SoapNet so it was the perfect excuse to watch some television.
