Easter is a fun time to decorate a table for a family dinner.
Our dining-room is very small though, 12 x 12, and I have a growing family to accommodate.
It's a tight squeeze.
This was last year's table
I had to cover the table cloth once again with plastic or no one would eat on it. You see, it was a gift from my youngest daughter when she travelled through South America and found it in a market in Peru.
It is a piece of art and I love it. No one wanted to be the one 'who spilled the wine'. :-b
My son-in-law said, "If you don't cover that with plastic I'll have to eat on the porch."
So I did.
In 2012 the centerpiece was tulips.
I had to have some daisies.
and a chocolate bunny for everyone (the little one was for Riley)
Dinner was served buffet-style so no plates on the table yet.
We are squeezing one more munchkin in this year as now we have Gwyn in a high-chair along with Riley and Bradley at the table.
I'm thinking back to when I was young and there was always the 'kid's table' at family gatherings.
Perhaps we are not far off from reaching that plateau.
While the snow blew around our house today, Annie watched me clean the house for this year's dinner.
"You missed a cat hair. Not mine, of course."
Now I know you are wondering "How the heck does she set a table with 6 cats in the house?"
This old house is just like all other older homes. The dining-room has two doors that I can close off before the dinner just to tick off the cats.
