I love setting the table for Easter dinner. It is the time of the year when nature comes back to life and I’m thrilled it’s Spring!
Similar to the way I dress, I have basics that I depend on to set the table and accessories I count on to dress it up and create a different look.
Riche Holmes Grant from The Riche Life has a great comment worth remembering. “Do what you like, … it’s your table, it’s your home, and no one should be judging what you do.” It is so true if you worry about what other people will think you can’t enjoy what you're doing.
My Easter accessories:
Candy is a big part of this celebration so I always include it in my decorations and let guests know they are free to eat the candy. I want it to be fun for everyone.
I don’t limit myself to the items I’ve described. When I see something else I can use I do, but starting with the basics makes being creative and having fun much easier, just like getting dressed every day.
Have fun, it's your party!

Years ago I spent hours in a gigantic grocery store in Provence, France. I was with. . .
Walking down the street in NYC, I notice a woman putting red lipstick on while looking at her reflection in her handheld mirror. She’s homeless, living out of the bags that encircle her. Oblivious to her surroundings, she holds the lipstick in her hand and, with determination, she starts moving it around and around her lips, causing the definition to disappear. After pausing to carefully check her image in her mirror, she continues applying the red color.
The motion feels eerily familiar. . . .
