Just call me Martha….

25 Apr
IMG_0831So Easter dinner went off very well, despite the fact that half the family is allergic to our dog — actually he’s my daughter’s dog and he’ll be moving out at some point, but his hair is everywhere in my house — so we had to clean and vacuum before everyone arrived. Not that I don’t usually clean and vacuum before I have guests, or anytime, really, but I had to be very thorough this time.
Nobody went into anaphylactic shock from dog dander, which was a plus.
We decided on pot luck so I didn’t have to make everything, but I did make the turkey and ham, peas and carrots. And I went a bit crazy with the decorations, as usual.IMG_0829
On the left is a photo of the centerpieces I made. I got the idea from Pinterest and changed it up a bit. Everyone loved them, except maybe my daughter’s firefighter boyfriend, who looked at them askance, but hey, if you’re going to have a Gerbera daisy catch fire, there’s nothing like having a firefighter at your dinner table.IMG_0825
On the right is a photo of my ‘basket of carrots’ utensils, again an idea from Pinterest. Very cute, I thought.
IMG_0827Finally, I made these little placecards from a free downloaded template from Country Living. The whole effect was great, and I announced I was channeling my inner Martha, and then was reminded that she went to jail. Maybe, but you can’t say she’s not creative. 
Now you know what I’ve been doing other than the final edits of my soon-to-be-released novel.

      Jail or not, I love Martha S. The only Easter decoration I put out was a yellow plastic egg, which I sat in the window. Nice blog, Nancy!
