Second best to spending holidays with family is having friends to fill the void. So while we’ll not be watching the grandsons fill their baskets with loot, there’s a hunt of a different kind. Grown men are looking for treasures in the yard while wives laughingly cheer them on.
When all bounty has been claimed, we head inside where food is ready and the table is waiting.
I never thought of blue and white as Easter colors, but a table runner found at Hobby Lobby inspired me to rethink. I had blue and white vases which were filled with cheery sunflowers, so it was a no brainer to have the color scheme be blue and yellow. Sometimes things happen quite by accident.
On a Walmart stop, I spotted plastic plates which just happened to include blues and yellows. As you might guess, I couldn’t resist! From Houston I’d brought some bunny plates thinking they’d come in handy, and they did!
I often like mixing glasses with different shapes and color. Here lovely blue ones are paired with recent thrift shop finds that I bought because of their square shape. I am loving the treasures found at thrift shops.
Though not what I’d originally planned, the blue and white table is a happy one, and it was fun stepping outside the norm. No matter how the table is set, what I always like best is having family or friends gather round for a shared experience.
Happy Easter to you all, and I hope your table is full of joy.
