After waiting out winter in their cozy quarters, our bunny buddies are once again bounding among the blossoms, hippity-hopping in jubilation and commemorating the wonders of spring and the glory of Easter.
This cheerful scene begins with a basic white tablecloth and cherished heirloom china. At each seat, speckled eggs piled in a cream-soup bowl are a welcoming sight, and over on the sideboard, a big, beautiful cake adds to the spirit of fun and frivolity. A pastel palette and a garden-fresh menu put an array of delights on the table, with Creamy Asparagus Soup, a Spring Vegetable Medley, Spinach and Mushroom Stuffed Pork Loin, and Garlic Roasted Fingerling Potatoes all among the offerings. For dessert, a slice of Tropical Coconut Cake is the ideal sweet note for this completing happy gathering. When paired with the cheerful decor, this Easter menu is sure to give you an ideal setting for celebrating with loved ones.
Set the table with a panorama of pretties for guests to discover during the meal. Anchor the setting with a green “lawn” in the form of a lace-trimmed table runner, then landscape with a variety of spring-themed baubles. For a simply sweet tabletop accessory, place a pillar candle in a hurricane vase, and fill with handfuls of jellybeans in pastel hues. Scatter more of the petite candy about the table in miniature baskets. To delight guests even more, use porcelain napkin rings that double as tiny vases, perfect for holding bitsy bunches of buds.
