Daughters' Easter Tablescape and feast

Some of you may remember in this post I shared that our daughters were going to co-host Easter dinner for us this year for the first time because I have been/am pretty sick for the last month, then DH caught it.

They did a fabulous job and made Easter very special for us all!

The lovely tablescape:

On the sideboard in back of room are two gorgeous Easter Lilies (gift to my daughters from son in law) and gorgeous bright yellow daffoldils (hostess gift from their Aunt) in the middle. Unfortunately I cut them off and didn't take another from this view. What a shame - sure did brighten up the room in gorgeous scented floral awesomeness!

My eldest sets a lovely table and always has everything "simply elegant." She is very crafty, as you can tell by her clever wooden blackboard nameplace eggs! I love her Gerbera daisies and pink mums in a few of her blue vintage Ball canning jars.

My youngest is an absolute WHIZ in the kitchen! Here is her menu, written on the large kitchen chalkboard wall near the refrigerator. I think that is a neat idea. I want a chalkboard wall too!

Here is the amazing feast spread - all placed on an old vintage linen tablecloth and shows my eldest's love of vintage kitchen bowls. Even the salad is beautifully made up! See the Mimosas in this pic too? They handed everyone one when we walked in. There is a fresh strawberry floating in each glass.

And her amazing strawberry cream cheese fluff pie - it is TO DIE FOR! If she shares the recipe maybe I will share it soon with Blogland.

After dessert we played a really fun game called Fact or Crap (haha) and laughed away some wonderful family hours..........................

This was an amazing day hosted by amazing daughters, of whom we are very proud.

Thanks, girls. You made your Momma very happy.


Tablescape Thursday

  1. They are clearly very caring and loving girls to show you such a wonderful time. And having good cooks in the family is a blessing. It looks like a lovely spread and the table is so bright and pretty. You may have chopped off their heads but I get the idea with the flowers. The colours are fantastic.


  2. Very pretty and how nice! Daughters are such blessings, heh?
    Thanks for sharing but my mouth is watering!

  3. The table looks beautiful and the food looks delish, Michele! It must have been great to not have to do anything this year. : ) I love the chalkboard eggs idea as place settings.

  5. Michele, I hope you are feeling much better now. Being sick is no fun and especially as long as you've been feeling poorly. You must have taught your daughters well because that is one delicious looking meal. Makes me hungry looking at it. That was a sweet thing to do for you. It's obvious they love you very much. Take care.----- Shannon

  13. You are so blessed to have two such wondeful daughters. I love the chalkboard Easter egg nameplates and that strawberry pie!


  14. Very talented daughters! That's quite the menu there. The table is lovely!

  15. Lovely table and a wonderful spread. Isn't it nice when the children "pick up the baton" and start hosting?

  16. Would by chance you have any leftovers? The food looks to die for. And I'm super hungry right now. And they did a beautiful table. Every element of it. You should be proud. Why Michele your girls are a chip off the ol' block. What a wonderful, wonderful Easter dinner.


  17. I sure hope you are feeling better by now. Your Easter sounds wonderful. It's great when family can spend the holidays together. Since we've moved back closer to our children we get to see them much more often than when we lived over half way across the states. The meal looked delicious. It was presented so beautifully.

  18. Oh Michele, this is AMAZING! You must be one proud mom of two great daughters . That is quite the menu ...and I too love the Chalkboard wall !

  19. Wasn't that so sweet of your daughters??!! I know you enjoyed the day very much and the food looked wonderful. I'm so sorry that you've been so sick! We had another wedding over the weekend and I am just catching up.
