Getting Ready

I'm feeling much better, thank you for all your get well wishes :>)
Can you believe that it wasn't until I read about it being Palm Sunday on someone's blog last week, (we missed church because of my cold), can you believe I didn't realize that this next Sunday is Easter?! Thank goodness for blog friends!
Good thing I had my sudden epiphany because as usual,we are hosting the family. Here.
How could I forget?
 So I'm planning my menu (Lamb and white chocolate raspberry cheesecake for dessert), setting out my favorite church garage sale plates, and getting things in order.
 Do you think I'll have time to make a runner for the table out of this gorgeous apple green ticking I got in the mail?
 Mmmmm, I hope so!
We will be heading to church with the family then home for lunch with as many of our close family as we can fit around the table:>)  Everyone brings something to pass and we celebrate the Joy of Christ's resurrection together.
How do you celebrate? Are you hosting dinner or going as a guest?

  3. Love the beautiful garage sale dishes!! The pink glasses too. I have never eaten lamb! I'm hosting Easter dinner and we're having ham and an eclair dessert. Always my cabbage salad ~ did I ever send you the recipe? Easter is my very favorite holiday.

  4. I would love to be your garage sale buddy. The dishes are beautiful and go perfectly with the spring green ticking. I'm preparing brunch as well with some recipes from a new cookbook. Have a lovely Easter with your family!

  5. Our church is having 3 services, including one at sunrise along the ocean, followed by a free pancake breakfast for anyone who comes by. We will host Easter at our house and like you are having lamb.

    Your Easter sounds wonderful. It will just be Mr. Comforts and me this year.

  12. Feeling covetous! Those are gorgeous dishes Kathy! I'm sure you'll have the loveliest table.

    We are hosting dinner but we only have my husband's cousin coming besides the 3 of us - so it's not a big to do. Which is just as well because my house is in a shambles and I wouldn't have time to do anything about it. :)

    Have a wonderful Easter!

    We will go to church and then be guests but I'm taking the deviled eggs and some butter peas :)
