When I bought my clearance sale English transferware,
I knew I wanted to accent the table with bright spring-y yellow for Easter.
Some yellow mums in a white pitcher and mini café au lait bowls filled with jelly beans
top some yellow polka dot ribbon from the Dollar Tree.
Dollar Tree goblets, gotta love the price!
All the cleaning, cooking, baking, and table setting took place on the Saturday before Easter,
a beautiful, sunny day. Unfortunately, Easter day dawned rainy and gray.
I think the bright colors helped to chase the gloomy gray away though,
and for sure sharing Easter dinner with family and friends that we love did!
The only thing better would have been to have my South Carolina daughter and her family,
and my Missouri daughter home for Easter too.
To go along with the “yellow theme” one of the desserts I made was my favorite lemon cake,
a recipe clipped years ago from the Oregonian newspaper.
This cake is moist, and if you keep it refrigerated it is a perfect cold, lemon-y dessert
for the, (hopefully), approaching sunny, warm days.
