I found the template for this cute bunny at “Holiday with Matthew Mead” and I saw the template used in a variety of ways, one of which was a cut out with the menu printed on it and a pretty white carnation as the tail. I thought I might replicate that for each place setting for our Easter dinner but I decided to frame my menu and I added a cotton ball to the outside of the frame for the bunny tail. Take a look!
This year we had chicken breast baked in the oven with Cranberry Gravy. On the side we had stuffing with onions and apples and pecans, roasted whole carrots with crushed pistachios, and green beans with sesame oil seasoning. We also had deviled eggs, but I didn’t remember to bring them to the table until I was getting the cream for coffee out of the refrigerator. I went ahead and put them out and the dinner guests didn’t seem to be bothered by their late arrival as they dug into them.
Dessert was a lemon meringue pie and a chocolate eclair cake with some freshly brewed coffee.
Dinner was rather low key since it was all adults. No kiddies pushing for Easter egg hunts or other such activities. I enjoyed all my guests but always see the four empty chairs at the table from those who are too far away.
I remember the days, not so very long ago, when I was preparing Easter Baskets, assembling a new set of spring clothes for each little one in the house, and putting shiny new shoes on tiny little feet. Who knew it would all go so fast?
