Friday Favorites from So Much Better with Age, Designthusiam, Simply Delicious, Let's Mingle, and More

Good morning! Happy Easter weekend. Did you have the week off? I didn't but I am taking today off to get ready for the holiday, I have a little baking to do, some flowers to buy and that is about it.

If you are looking for a little inspiration for your Easter table design, this blue and white table-scape from Designthuasium is beautiful and includes many items you may already have at home like the blue and white Chinoiserie vasesblue glasses, the white linen tablecloth and napkins. If you don't have the bird plates than pull out your bunny plates or perhaps a flowered salad plate to add a touch of Spring.

If you wan to set a more whimsical table and something that I am sure that your kids or grand kids would love this fabulous Peter Rabbit inspired table from Jamie at So Much Better with Age is perfect. Frankly I would love to eat my Easter dinner at this table. I think my favorite part is the cloche filled with carrots and the Beatrix Potter books! You could even pick up a few books from the bookstore and give them as Easter gifts.

Chocolate Chunk Hot Cross Buns from Simply Delicious via Pinterest

It would not be Easter without some sweet treats, like these scrumptious looking Chocolate Chunk Hot Cross Bun from Simply Delicious.

I will be making either a pan of Almond Sweet Rolls which are light, fluffy and a little change from cinnamon rolls.

 Or if I am pressed for time I will be whipping up a batch of these Rhodes Cinnamon Pecan Rolls, they are so easy and delicious and they start with Rhodes bread dough.
