26 are confirmed for Easter dinner on Sunday.
Don't you love this little flower container? They are by Wilton and can be found at Michael's in their wedding/ party section. I filled each little bubble with SweetTart jellybeans (have you tried those?!) which I separated in colors. I still have to tie the tags on the bulk of them.
I like the contrast of the yellow and turquoise...it adds a real pop to the look.
I set up tables and chairs in the living room (after emptying it of almost all other furniture). I covered all the tables in white tablecloths to give it a more uniform look.
The centerpieces are sheets of moss with a pedestal or two atop. I tucked fun treasures in among the moss as well as a couple of votive candles in glass holders. Feeling like it needed a bit of something living, I bought cheap, cheap petunias, kept them in their cheap pots, but covered them with natural linen tied with raffia.
I still have to do the dining room table settings but that should go quickly now that I know what I want it to look like. Those plates will all be ivory and I'll make a longer version of the centerpiece since it's a much longer table.
Tomorrow I'll be at The Cottage but maybe I'll have a chance to show you the Easter basket I'm making for Seth. Since he'll be with me the week after Easter (did I tell you that yet?!) the Easter Bunny is visiting him here. I went a little bit crazy...it's going to be one heck of an Easter Basket!
