Welcome to a new series here on the blog-a-roo- it’s called…
Each post will feature a different “guest” or theme. I thought this would be fun because things are really weird around here thanks to our quarantine. Here we go!
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic we are all in isolation with our immediate families. To help boost our spirits for Easter we had a special Easter dinner tea in the dining room!
There were several special treats. We had some late-blooming daffodils and they made a cute flower arrangement. A good teacher friend at school had given me these lovely curtains while we were still in session. I finally hung them. She made the tablecloth too!
We mixed and matched all sort of things for a springy color scheme: green Frankoma, pink Gracetone, jadeite Pioneer Woman, blue McCoy, and blue Le Creuset. (I can’t believe how much my kids like to set the table all fancy and have candles!)
The menu was: roast chicken, mashed potatoes, scones, Earl Grey tea with cream, green beans, mushrooms, snickerdoodle cookies, and Easter candy!
So thankful to be healthy and have food on my table this Easter.
Warmers keep things hot in a our big dining room. It’s usually cold in there because we keep in closed in the winter.
Of course, we had our Peter Rabbit china out- any excuse! Everyone had a little rabbit person for their place setting.
This ironware tureen is the oldest thing I own. I filled it with blown-out duck eggs in beautiful colors several years ago. Next to it is a new thing I like- this ceramic strawberry container.
We had a lovely time and then everyone helped to clean up! Yay! See you next time for more tea parties!
