Easter Table

For Tablescape Thursday and Pink Saturday, I wanted to post pictures of my Easter themed table. I love the colors. I wanted to add my Easter houses but I couldn't find them. I wonder if my husband took them to charity???? goodness, talk about panic attack.

I told my oldest son who's ten years old that we were going to celebrate Easter at a friends house. I thought he'd be delighted since the couple has a boy his age. But, to my surprise, he was not. He actually got a little upset and said he didn't want to go. He looked up at me and, with a little attitude, said "what? is he my niece? or is he my uncle? is that why we have to go there?" ......of course I couldn't hold back the laughter, I tried but his reaction was just too funny. I wonder if I was as confused as he when I was his age; cousin, niece, nephew, uncle..... I think in his mind they are all one and the same. But no worries, I did explain to him the relationship between nieces and uncles, that is after I got up off the floor from rolling with laughter. Don't worry, my son has a good sense of humor and thought it was funny that he made me laugh so hard.
Here are my pics:

This is the dinner plate:

By the way, today was my last class for Cake Decorating at Michael's (the arts and crafts store). I had so much fun in this class, and we had such a talented instructor.  I learned more than I thought I would and now I'm not so nervous to decorate cakes. I'm actually pretty good right now but I do need to practice. This was for course 1 for beginners, look what I made: Delicious!

But, actually first, I should show you how BAD I was at cake decorating, prior to taking this Wilton Class at Michael's.  CAUTION: UGLY PICTURE AHEAD:

I dare you to double click on it to enlarge it on your screen.  I'm telling you, Wilton saved me from being disowned by my family and friends!

Now for the big reveal, TADA:
