Now that the main meal is taken are of....it's time to concentrate on decorating the table...and desserts....
First, we love the simplicity of this idea from House of Hawthornes---pansies and teacups---click here and keep scrolling down the page once you get there to see more.
You can even add some of these free printables from HofH too.
And some vintage Easter cross images here.
BTW, if you need extra plates, white goes with everything! Or can be used to round out missing pieces from those assorted dish sets you've lovingly collected---or been lucky enough to inherit.
Or to accent those seasonal random pieces you've assembled.
CROTON SHOPRITE has lots of white Corelle options (and unbreakable too) IN THE BACK OF THE STORE CURRENTLY---near the fancy cakes section. There's also those emergency "fancy" salad tongs too!
Still stuck on how to arrange your tablescape--no problem---here's some dish inspiration from PINTEREST.
And if you're in need of more for the tabletop from Decor to Pottery to Linens, MELITA'S HOME FURNISHINGS is the place for you.

MOVING ALONG TO DESSERTS--and in case you are not into making your own this year, there's lots of local options from BAKED BY SUSAN, JUNCTION JT'S and THE DESSERTIST. BUT...if you do plan on making something...
We highly recommend...ITALIAN EASTER COOKIES!
