Easter 2023 Main Meal

My parents, brother, and sister-in-law stayed at my house for Easter weekend this year. We had 6 at our main meal since my friend Carol was able to join us. I decided on a Spring forest theme. My Mom did amazing work with the table plants and flowers. My sister-in-law assisted with setting the table. We put candy eggs in the nests. I was concerned that the eggs would fly when people removed their napkins. That only happened to one person.


  • Tablecloth – White tablecloth
  • Placemats – Rattan
  • Napkins – Spring Green cloth
  • Napkin Rings – Wooden with Nests (from Hobby Lobby) and Ferns (from Michaels). I hot glued ferns to the nests, then wired the nests to the wooden rings. Cadbury mini chocolate eggs.
  • Plates – My Mom’s Easter plates
  • Tablescape – Made by my Mom
  • Foil wrapped Lindt Easter Bunnies
  • Menu Cards – I printed on white paper.



My critique of the meal: 

It was wonderful to have family members involved in the preparations. My Mom and sister-in-law set the table. My brother decorated the desserts. The woodland table was fantastic! The desserts were adorable! As for menu items, the only one I would not serve again is the Pea and Leek tart but I would make the crust again it was perfect. We cut the potatoes for the gratin in cubes because I was nostalgic for Saltsman’s. They were wonderful! I want to only make cubed potatoes gratin in the future. They are more enjoyable to eat. It was a memorable Easter!
