Aren't we all racing toward the finish line, trying to get our Easter dinner and day organized and planned?
I'm thinking ahead to Sunday in great anticipation, as I set the table for 10 guests, and I use "paper" napkins!
I'll be serving a tasty appetizer provided by KRAFT, on these plates ... (stay tuned for a KRAFT GIVEAWAY, in the near future ...)
And I'll be pulling out my standard white dishes
Dollar Store goblets
Front yard beauties
I'll be serving either a ham or baked salmon served in tarragon, wine, and fresh lemon (I haven't decided yet), whipped sweet potatoes, brown sugar-coated asparagus, and fresh strawberry spinach salad.
And delicious dishes provided by my guests .... like homemade rolls, fruit salad, and a peach cobbler and Easter cake ...
Yes, planning ahead is what really helps the reluctant entertainer feel better about entertaining!
I've learned to think ahead. And I've learned to have a goal.
I've also learned that it takes discipline and an obtainable vision to have guests into my home.
My friend Meredith recently said, regarding her get-together just a week ago, that it was relaxing and the guests brought a lovelier assortment of food than she could have baked herself!
Delegation, paper napkins, inviting people in - things don't have to be picture perfect in order to enjoy a day of celebration!
Here's to letting go of perfection! I love it when embracing "good enough" leads to something even better, said Meredith.
Happy Easter Planning!
I'd love to hear about your Easter plans?!
