...an elegant Easter table reveal and handmade artisan treats!

...oh happy day!!

hello dear peeps ~
won't you come in for my Easter table reveal?!
I still have a few tweaks here and there,
for the most part,
my table is set.

there are a lot of pictures
so here we go...

It will just be the four of us this year.
Most of our family lives in Ohio
and with the rising costs of
it gets harder and harder to return for a visit :(
I do the best I can to make a beautiful day

here is my ruffled tablecloth all ironed...

and see lovely lambie?

oh yes,
do come closer
...don't be shy!

as I am a visual kinda girl,
it helps me to see the end result,
if I place my table pretties before hand.
it also makes it easier to plan a delicious menu!

Like this little glass platter
I will thread lush, juicy fruit upon these acrylic gem pics

and fabulously good deviled eggs will be on this dish...
did you ever wonder why deviled eggs are called "deviled eggs"
I mean,
why not call them whipped yolk eggs instead??!
well, I guess in this instance
it could be another symbolism...
Christ defeated death,
so the Devil has been whipped!!

(well, it's true!))

moving on...

ruffly edged dishes that will soon hold yummy morsels on them...

I can't stop looking at lovely lambie...

this vintage champagne bucket
conatins the plant
"summer snow"

and have you ever seen a chocolate egg with the serenity prayer on it??

well, I sure never had
until now,
and of all places
I found it at Wal-mart!

doesn't lambie look happy there?!

 for me,
an elegant table is not complete without some candlelight

I think it makes everything look beautiful

see that pretty lacy egg??
would you guess that it is a real, hand blown one?

every Easter,
for as long as I can remember,
I have seen lamb cookies at my Grandmother's Easter table,
and then my dear Mia's table,
and now, at my Easter table...

this year, I added a cross cookie too...

I really enjoyed making these dear cookies
as it was a way for me to be with my Grandmother
who is no longer here,
and to be with my Mom,
who is in Ohio...
far away in miles ~
but sooo very close in my heart!
 a family Easter tradition that I hope continues on with my young adults.

you may be asking yourself,
what the??!!

these are the ribbons that go around each and every lambie cookie...
little bells,
little crosses

see my flock?
I have two trays of these lemon shortbread lambies,
just in case any one stops by for a treat

won't YOU be coming??!!

frolicking lambs
edible lace palm crosses

these are new this year!
I really like how they turned out:)
I brushed them with sparkle powder and added a tiny white candy rose...

as my peeps are older now,
big baskets are out!
this year I have chosen these french flower baskets

I am working on these today
perhaps I shall seek some more velvet violets for the flowers instead
I will be whitewashing them
and adding a different french
treehouse toile image to the fronts of them

and then tie them to the backs of my dining room chairs.
Are you wondering
perhaps ~
and just what shall I be putting in them??
I have been making handmade,
artisan treats this entire week to fill them up with!

let's see,

chocolate dipped potato chips...
one of my fav's
 it's true,
I'm one of those salty sweet girls :)

and then we have
dark chocolate covered,
organic lavender, pretzel rods...


white chocolate crosses
brushed with lilac and pearl, edible sparkle powder...

along with these chocolate lambies...

I just couldn't resist em!


aren't they too cute?!!
as well as some other little happy
non edible treats
like iTunes gift cards and other stuffs teenagers like:)

we made it to the end...

I have so enjoyed sharing my favoritest holiday with all of you!

Each and every one of your comments,
through out all my Easter projects,
 have enriched this Easter even more for me
and I thank you sooo very much for your blog love:)

I would like to wish
~ every one of you ~
a most lovely Easter,
however you celebrate it,
and hope that this season,
I have offered some inspirations,
to enrich your days in return :)

I will be sharing this post with:
French Country Cottage's: Feathered Nest Friday

set at many different settings and blending modes.)
