Easter Company

We are getting ready for our Easter Company at our home.  This was my chosen Holiday this year, we pick at Thanksgiving who will host which one.   SO, I have been getting ready for some time, first it was the handmade card/invites and then the shopping of the Easter egg hunt gifts and the wrapping.  Next was the little Easter place card cups, the purchase of the flowers and ribbon for the rolled linen napkins.  Tomorrow we are going to dye our Easter eggs to put in our little cups and boy of boy, I am going to try and make a molded Easter cake.   I will be back next week with some other pictures, I hope of the cake (LOLOLO) and our Easter dinner.  My husband will do the cooking so that should be just fine!!  
We will be having 14 people for dinner, 15 if you want to come.   Our rolled linen napkins with the flowers and ribbon.  I FINALLY bought enough of this style of napkin for a very large group.  I have been known to have more than one style of napkin on the table,   ** nothing wrong with that  **, just wanted to have/do something different each holiday hosting I do to keep them guessing!
Our Easter egg hunt gifts.  Our family is kinda in the middle, we no longer have the small children for our hunt and no grandchildren yet so I thought instead of candy we will be doing little adult gifts (not that adult, this is Easter, you know!)   Shhh, all a secret yet!!
Our little Easter nameplate cups.  Tomorrow is Easter egg Dying and those will be going into those little cups and those little birdies that I cut off from the picture I will glue dot to the egg.   Alas, the chicken or the egg?

Okay, got some musing today too.  I went to the dentist today.  I broke my tooth several weeks ago and I needed a crown, my first really major dental work I have ever needed done and I tell you, those shots of novicane , at least 4, I kid you not are very painful but after that I did not feel a thing and that was for about a good six hours.  This not not my usual dentist, now don't these doctors/dentists seem younger all the time, a sure sign that I am getting older.  Anyways she looks at me, says, have I treated you before?,  then said, No, I don't think I have.  I say, no, I do believe you are right and what I am really thinking is NO, how could you, you just graduated from dental school, OMG!!  Anyways, other than the shots, she was very nice so I get to see her in two weeks to finish up my treatment.  One thing I always do is make sure I look in the mirror before I leave that building, fool me once, I tell you.  Because once I walked out with polish on my mouth/cheek and was on there the rest of the day until I got home!!!  My dentist/HMO clinic is by the the house I lived in before this one, not that far away but still enough.  I thought I would finish up my Easter grocery shopping at a store by there to save time and let me time you, you do not save time shopping in a store where you do not know where anything is!!  It was pouring rain after my shopping and a store employee was walking the customers out under their umbrellas, was that the sweetest you have ever heard of.  I did decline, I felt badly for her so  I got all wet anyways.  Phew, what a day. 

Please leave a note about  your Easter celebrations (or your dentist).  I am always delighted to hear from my readers.   Blessings, Jane


  1. Oh Jane, I DO wish I was going to be at YOUR Easter celebration. I love all of the fun preparations you have shared with us. Makes me feel guilty that I haven't really thought about how our Easter celebration is going to be except for going to Sunrise Service. Have a wonderful Easter with your family. :) Michelle

  2. Wow, you really do go all out. I agree with Michelle...I am thinking that you put me to shame with all you have done, when all I am doing is cooking dinner and giving the kids their baskets. You have done a wonderful job, and I think you did come out ahead with having Easter as your holiday, because I would not want to be the one who had to prepare a big Christmas celebration. Enjoy your Easter with your family and all the fun activities that you have planned.


  3. Jane I am sure everyone will appreciate all your creativity that you used to put this together. It is always so nice to go to someones house for a special occasion and see how they went all out. It makes you feel so special. Have fun!

    Bear Hugs,
    Carol :o}

  6. OK Jane, I guess I missed all the fun at your house must have lost the invitation whilst out on my boat!!! Wow girl you really know how to get a party started....I can't wait to see what you do for your birthday later in the know I will be checking back to see the pickies!!
    Dentists...ummm not exactly my favorite but I am lucky to have the one I have...and he's young and cute too!!! My son's dentist is the best! Thijs gets cool glasses to wear so the light doesn't hurt his eyes, he comes away with a balloon, a couple of little toys, toothbrushes, toothpastes, name it! I keep teasing him that I'm going to switch coz this children's dentist truly is awesome...they even have video games for the older kids to play while waiting!
    Good luck with the rest of your dental treatment...get another shot of novacane to relax you!!! Or have one of your famous cocktails!!! LOL
    Hugs, "
