~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We had a terrific Easter; I hope you did too. Our church held four services: two on Saturday and two on Sunday. Because we were having 13 family members for dinner, we went to the 6 o'clock service on Saturday. (Johnny sang in the choir for both Saturday services.)

Jane sent me these gorgeous flowers! Look how they totally match the favors we had at each plate! I was so tickled with this. And please notice Jane had the florist include Blue blooms as she knows it's my favorite color. You can see the Blue tablecloth and the Blue napkins. Later, we added Blue glasses.



Here's a close-up of the favors we had at each plate. This plastic egg/chick had three Reese's pieces inside. We got it from Walmart for only $1.00 each. Note the chick's eyes are Blue.



Our dessert is a long-standing family tradition. We got the egg cake from Publix and had it decorated with the flowers forming a cross . . .




and the words, "He Is Risen." Of course, you noticed the words are in Blue.




Did you enjoy your Easter?


Happy Blue Monday!

Hi Sally and a very Happy Easter to you!

Pastel blues and yellows are synonymous with Easter and Spring now. I've gone the same way with my softened osteospermum flower :-)

Have a lovely week!

Hello Sally, Yur Easter decorations are darling. Janes beautiful flowers, the cute favors and the meaningful Easter cross on the cake make the perfect Easter dinner. You are blessed with a family of faith and love.
