It felt like Easter anyway................

Good morning everyone!
Hope you all had a nice Easter wknd :)

I'm ashamed to say that not only am I late showing any Easter decorations - there was nary a bunny to be found in my house this year.............

They're were birds ( that had just laid eggs )  


and nests  


and birdhouses  


and a fresh bouquet from the dollar store that I bought for THIS 


and there was some left over sprigs to put on each plate 



Sometimes I use my Willow Tree ornaments for my kids place settings
Ashley, you sit here sweetheart



Lindsay honey - you're over here


and Gordie, you sit here, handsome


And we didn't have lamb, or ham, or turkey
We had roast beef and yorkshire pudding...................
& a chocolate cake that I whipped up from scratch Duncan Hines



and of course some candy coated chocolate eggs ( my absolute favorite )


In fact I cheated my whole way through Easter this year.............short cuts everywhere I could find 'em

And guess what?
It worked.......................even without a single bunny!



Hope you all spent yours surrounded by bunnies love

  1. Aw how sweet. I had bunnies all crammed together in my pathetic attempt to put something Easterly out. Not very pretty, I'm afraid. My birds in their nest in a cage, look much better. Your birds and table look fabulous!

  7. I spent Easter surrounded by cats that didn't bring me any eggs! But it was a lovely Easter anyway because the sun shone for three days! I bet it was a nice Easter for you if your children were there.

  8. Easter was just another day around here, hubby worked 13 hours at the mine and I worked in the garage. No bunny's in sight. And the only birds were the ducks and geese I feed in my yard every morning. The only thing colourful around here is my leg from falling the other day, it is a pretty shade of blues, purple and black from my shin to my toes lol Your table looks stunning and I loved all of your pics. Your house always looks so pretty. hugs Tobey

  9. No bunnies here either other than a few Lindt ones. We did have lamb however. But I cheated and bought a lemon meringue pie - something I rarely do. And you know what? Nobody cared.

    We've been fighting the flu here and so a laid back Easter was in order.

  12. It felt like Easter here, too. Even without the boys at home. Probably due to the fact that my face was stuffed with cake and whipped cream. :)
    Very unique table, Suze- totally you!

  16. It all looks lovely...even without a bunny! Mmmmmmm yorkshire pudding! I have yorkshire pudding pans that my friend from England sent me and we love them with gravy!

  17. No bunnies here - just chicks. Your table looks simply elegant. My Willow Tree angels have not seen the light of day in over a year. YIKES! They are pushing the rule around here. If not used within a year, out the door you go.

  18. I did the traditional ham & scalloped potatoes...I think my family would have fired me if I didn't. lol Love your decor! Oh and those candy eggs? I had some for decoration and I love them...first time I've bought them, but won't be the last.
