I made a *very* last-minute, impromptu decision this week to host an Easter feast here at home.
Mainly so we could break Gram out of a hospital-like setting for the day and enjoy the holiday with her. (if all goes according to plan...) And slightly because we have our own HAM to eat. (!!!) And most especially because Easter calls for some serious celebrating! He is RISEN, indeed!
I put a ca-bash on the Easter dress sewing for two reasons:
1) I got this lovely vintage bit at an antique store for $8.00 and Corynn wants to wear it so WHY would I sew matching stuff for everyone if she isn't going to MATCH?!?
2) The fabric I have just seems MEANT to be paired with dark brown/dark red which are too....dark....for Easter time (at least to me.) so I am thinking they might be Thanksgiving dresses/new family photo dresses for the Christmas cards?
Reason number 3) I am a terrible procrastinator has absolutely NOTHING to do with it!!!
So a festive feast day seems just the ticket for some good old fashioned busyness and giving due hubbub to one of the most important celebration days on our calendar!
Here are just a few sneak peaks of what is in store:
With the exception of the hydrangea beauties (because one MUST have fresh flowers. Well, I use that as MY excuse!) I am working strictly on a have-on-hand basis. I kinda sorta think that that adds to the fun of it.
And since one thing we have PLENTY of is eggs~ they will be making an appearance both as decorations and in plenty of the food offerings. :-)
Do you have any Easter traditions/plans that I can
