Today is Good Friday and Easter will soon be here! This year, I have been working on making the holidays special for my family. I have read some really great books about this subject, but one of my favorites is called "Lets Make a Memory" by Gloria Gaither and Shirley Dobson. I actually checked the book out from the library and really loved it. I just made some notes before returning it, but it would definitely be one to add to my home library. I will be hosting Easter Dinner so I gathered some decor for the table. There are two speckled egg topiaries in light pastels, a new table cloth in taupe, light green plates that my mom gave me, small favor boxes and chocolates to place inside, ceramic salt and pepper shakers in a little twig nest, and some color coordinated paper napkins. I will add a picture of the finished table in a later post.
On the menu... Glazed Ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, jello fruit salad,and rolls. Desert will be Strawberry Shortcake, Pineapple Upside down Cake, and Chocolate bunt cake.
