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.
