I hope you had a special Easter celebration! We did. After church, we had our son's family to dinner. One of our teenage granddaughters brought a girlfriend to dinner. (The friend's mom and dad live out of town, and she couldn't make it home for Easter.) I find dinner parties extra special when a guest is present.

Jane sent some beautiful flowers along with a note wishing us a Happy Easter. Here they are sitting in the center of the table, covered with a Blue tablecloth.
This is the other side. I love the way the florist wrapped leaves around the inside of the container. (I don't know if you can see that or not.) The flowers are gorgeous and so is Jane's love. The picture shows some of the blooms a purple, but actually, they were kind of Blue.
You can see our china cabinet with several Blue and white items.
It's a tradition of mine to serve an Easter Egg cake for dessert. Note, please, that I do not make it myself! I order it from Publix bakery. It's really a yellow cake with fudge frosting baked into an egg shape. It helps us remember the message of Easter: He arose! Here's a picture of our Easter cake for this year. Notice, please, the Blue rose in the center of the cross and the Blue trim around the cake.
It all began when I heard a story about a Sunday School teacher who asked the class to draw a cross. Most children quickly drew a stick-like object that closely resembled the letter "T," but one child got out all the pastel crayons and became quite intent while working on his drawing.
When he finished, his picture was a cross, covered with flowers. He explained, "I put flowers on my cross to make it beautiful because Jesus died so that I could go to Heaven. And that's beautiful!"
