~An Easter To Remember and Simple & Sweet Fridays #212~

Easter
 is a wonderful holiday to have family and friends over!
Celebrate traditions that we all grew up with.
My mother and father loved having the whole family come home.
I have 6 brothers and sisters and the family grew to 
12 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.
My mother and dad would have loved celebrating with the kids.
I wanted to share with you photos of the cookies
 I made this year and our Easter table setting. 
Our family would love to wish you and
your families 
~A Happy Easter~
I used my mother's tablecloth for our Easter celebration this year!
I decided to have purple and yellow as the main color scheme.


I found this vintage candelabra for our centerpiece.
Love the purple dried hydrangeas!
  Cute little baskets to hold some goodies for Easter
at Michaels Craft Store.


I made sugar cookies then added fondant on top.
Added icing color gel and painted them.
I got the idea from La Table De Nana.
She is so creative!!
A pretty Easter bunny candle from my friend, Jackie!



Wishing you all a very 
Happy Easter!

  3. Jody, your table is beautiful! I think the cookies look too cute to eat, but I know everyone will delight in eating them. I love seeing your Peter Rabbit cake as I just today purchased that pan. I think it is going to be fun to bake in. I spy an adorable Peter Rabbit container too. Is that something you recently found. It's adorable! Happy Easter to you.
