Egg Hunting and Easter Dinner!

Today we cheated and had Easter a week early.  Two of the families in our extended family will be out of town next week, so we decided to do it early.  Yeah!  I made egg bags for the grandchildren who would be in attendance.  Decorating them with art from Graphics Fairy, scrapbook papers, doilies and vintage Rickrack.

I brought home a set of LuRay Pastels from the antique mall, that I have had for sale for several years, to dress my dining room table.

Then used mixed and matched pastel dishes and glass ware that I collected for a spring luncheon I did several years ago.  The center piece is just colored candle holders with plastic Easter eggs instead of candles, fun and easy!

We had a traditional menu with ham and cheesy potatoes, before getting ready to stage the Easter egg hunt.

My oldest grand child in attendance did the honors of hiding the eggs, pretty much the cutest Easter Bunny ever, don't you agree!

And here we see the seekers at the starting line, ready to rush the field!!
Of course the adults have the most fun watching the frenzied egg hunters scrurrying ...  Just wish we had been able to have all the grandchildren here, but these little hunters were darling!
Here's hoping your spring holiday will have lots of little people involved as well!!
