This Easter I’m keeping it simple . . .
Once again creating a simple flower arrangement using just carrots and daisies.
(this year I used an oversized mason jar, cut the carrots to size and fill in the jar, then cut and stick in those cute little daisies and you have yourself a fun arrangement).
This one has found its home on top of a cake stand right on my kitchen island.
I was fortunate to have Tori, Molly and Logan come for a visit last month and then to my surprise as soon as they left, Riley, our son decided to come home during his spring break. March was a wonderful happy family time for this momma. Then, as Easter week approached I found my home to be empty once again.
But . . . I do have extended family and lots of friends so an Easter Brunch can still be had. (actually I would probably pull a few things out even if I were all by myself).
Although I am keeping it simple . . .
Only pulling out the basic pieces this year . . .
Some of my favorite treasures . . .
(this makes for a simple, yet touching vignette)
And for the table decor . . .
I’m sticking with my Easter Traditional pieces . . .
Orange stripe placemats and Easter bunny/lettuce dinner plates.
I added some whimsy to the decor by doubling the napkins and tying them together with hydrangeas.
For the tablescape (centerpiece), I brought out my matching vase (with the dishes) and decided the fresh flower arrangement needed to be something with a natural, wild flower feel. This arrangement was just what I was after except I added a few orange tulips to bring out and compliment the orange in the napkins and placemats.
I then added the candle holders, a few succulents . . .
A little Easter tea pot . . .
And I was good to go.
Table is set and now all I need to do is decide on the menu, yes, I might be a bit busy tomorrow.
Having close family, extended family, or friends you call family over for Easter brunch is a wonderful way to remember this special day.
I leave you with another simple yet touching vignette . . .
the one that reminds me what this day is all about . . .
That He Lives . . .
That He is always here . . .
That His love never fails, that we are constantly wrapped in His unconditional love . . .
And because of Him, I can go and love all around me.
This video (because of Him) is quite touching and so beautiful.
May you all have a wonderful Easter.
