Easter Joy!

I had such a wonderful Easter! It was a peaceful day with just our small family and we truly enjoyed an unhurried pace and each others company. Even though we don't have any little ones, I still had fun shopping for candy and making Easter baskets! I was even able to make a pink Easter basket as our eldest son had his girlfriend join us for dinner! How delightful!

I also had fun setting our dinner table and trying a few new recipes. I decided to do a more informal table for Easter and I loved the colors and the fun little items I added.

The three little bunnies were made by my Mom over 30 years ago and are one of my most treasured Easter possessions.

I made a yummy Peach Sangria with Strawberries...

and the most delicious Parmesan Knots! (I will post the recipe tomorrow!)

We also made some colorful Deviled Eggs that were as delightful to look at as they were to eat!

All you do is add a little food coloring to water and add your prepared hard boiled egg whites.

Then you wait a few minutes until they are beautifully dyed!

Add your egg yolk filling and a sprinkle of Paprika and you have a gorgeous plate of delicious eggs!

I even found the time to make up some paper Easter carrots. I found the instructions on the BoBunny blog and they were easy and fun to do!

I filled them with jelly beans and everyone had a special treat greeting them at their place for dinner :)

I love being domestic! That is the one thing I miss the most about being employed outside the home. But I am thankful that on special occasions, I can fuss a bit and enjoy a different aspect of creativity!

I hope you had a blessed Easter! Thanks for looking ~
