Easter...Part 1!

Happy Easter to those who celebrate today! We are in a unique situation at my house...I grew up Catholic but converted to Greek Orthodox when I married my husband. Easter is the only holiday that falls on a different day between the two, so even though it will be another month before we celebrate Orthodox Easter, we had the pleasure of hosting my side of the family today to celebrate their Easter. We had 15 people for dinner, and although it was pretty crowded, I think everyone had a good time. Here is a peak at our setup for the day...

Saturday night we dyed Easter eggs, I dyed pink eggs and green eggs to use as place cards for Easter dinner. I placed a sticker on each egg that represented each guest's first initial and placed them on the table. I also tried out paper placemats for the first time, and I have to say, I LOVED them. Super cute and you don't have to worry about ruining them like you do with cloth napkins and placemats. You can buy them here, or if you are in the Pittsburgh area, you can find them at House 15143.

The delicious cake is from Oakmont of our favorites!

I picked up the cute little chalkboard from House 15143...I love that I can change it for the different holidays.

And a couple dining room the way, my Dad and I are hoping to sell the wooden ruler growth charts that you can see hanging in this next picture at a local craft show this summer. More info to come once it is confirmed! :)

I hope you all had a great day with your family and friends, whether you celebrated Easter today or not. As always, thanks for reading!
