or something a bit more festive for Easter..
It's just such fun to work with the colors of the season!!
I really enjoy using my inherited set of Syracuse china for formal dinners.. even if they are planned for just the two of us...it's a time to bring out the Waterford, as well.
Or, I enjoy thinking of a new way to use my mom's apple dishes...how about apple blossom time..
This is why I love to purchase gorgeous fabrics and create my own table runners!
Homemade napkins complete the idea!
and shouldnt every apple tree host a nest of bluebirds??
My mother's birthday was in April and we often were able to have a lovely picnic outside, but one year we had the paper plates inside, and the tulips dressed the table.
Dining in the sunroom was almost like a springtime picnic!
Yellows of spring most assuredly inspire me..
Especially, if there will be bunnies~!!
But truly, it won't be too long til I will be thinking Irish thoughts...
Although, now that I've enjoyed an Irish breakfast, this simple fare will never do!!!
Nay, it must include lovely poached eggs, rashers of bacon, baked beans, tomatoes, and slices of hot buttered soda bread. yum... uh, no, I will leave the black sausage to the imagination.
Yes, now I am almost giddy with the prospect of all the fun spring will afford me...
