Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Easter Dinner

We had company for dinner on Easter

The Spode Blue Room, a wee Waterford vase with a few grape hyacinths
and a packet of cookies to take home for afternoon tea

The centerpiece wheat grass in the blue and white shallow bowl with an old Victorian robin in the center and our blue Easter eggs around the rim!
A bottle of "Emerson" wine
A very special wine, indeed!

The lace tablecloth, damask napkins in silver rings, Jim's grandmother's cutlery

With food in place for we served family style!

A platter half filled with roast lamb and half filed with ham

Thin spears of asparagus, roasted

A coconut cake
Sigh -- not the lamb cake, that one didn't work out
This is Plan B -- the second cake I made Saturday for Easter.
Somehow coconut seems to be a flavor of Easter.

And after our guests left --
A good time was had by all!

It's Thursday and I'm sharing our Easter Dinner table with Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

You set a beautiful table for Easter dinner (and the food looks great too). I loved the tablecloth and the blue and white transferware. Lovely!
