In celebration of Easter weekend, I'm sharing my favorite ideas for food and centerpieces--all are super easy.
A centerpiece can be assembled in minutes by stacking cake plates, then adding grocery-store flowers, candied eggs, and chocolate bunnies. Shop your house for small items that compliment your vignette.
Small, individual carrot "bouquets" add a whimsical--and different--touch to your table.
Colorful candy on a glass pedestal can add a simple but elegant touch. Assembly time: 10 seconds.
Food Ideas for Exhausted Cooks:
A strawberry-cucumber salad with dill, mint, and organic pansies. Just slice and arrange in circles.You can garnish with a little strawberry vinaigrette, if you like.
Cornish Hens baked in a Cast Iron Skillet are always hearty--and easy.
Since Easter is early, Peter Rabbit has been busy.
Shop the local markets for fresh vegetables, then create an (eventually) edible centerpiece.
If you're pressed for time, buy a bakery cake and garnish it with roses.
Or buy a pound cake, spread on canned icing, and garnish with candied eggs. Place tulips in the cake's center hole (a small juice glass fits most "holes" in store-bought cakes. Just fill with water and flowers and place in the "hole").
Hope you are having a pleasant Easter week!
