Easter Tablescaping & Dinner Menu

Well, it is that time of year again. EASTER!!! I am currently working on my tablescape for Easter Dinner. What you see above is the basis of what I am going to work with. I added the flower plates this year (actually bought them over Christmas on sale for $1 on recommendation from MsPattey) and plan on going over to Pier1 and Michaels to see what I might want to add. I don't buy "china" every year...I got a set and work around that. Period.

We are not coloring eggs this year. The past two years, we made real eggs; colored and decorated; and then NEVER ate them. A waste. This year I decided that Princess Cara and I (and I'm sure that the older Princesses will be involved) would make Easter Cookies. I bought a kit from William&Sonoma, I have decorations, frosting and we are off. Those will DEFINITLY get ate. TRUST.

We are not doing traditional Easter menu either. Momz and I have put together the following menu:

Warm Salad of Seared Sacallops, Green beans & Bell Peppers in Walnut Vinegrette
Roast Prime Ribs of Beef w/Pink & Greeen Peppercorn Crust & Red Wine Pan Sauce
Potato & Porcini Gratin
Broccoli & Cauliflower w/Horseradish Bread Crumbs
Rosemary rolls
GMa Sandy's Easter Basket Cake
Wine (of course)

Reservations are open. If you would like to join us for dinner, drop me a line. No need to do a holiday alone - EVER.
