I used Farm Fresh Eggs for my centerpiece. My niece, Hannah, has over 50 laying hens, so she keeps me well supplied with fresh eggs. I sat the whole centerpiece on a special silver plate. It was given to my aunt (Mom's sister) when she retired from 34 years of service with the Halifax Regional School Board. I always enjoy using things that are special to me in my table decor. I like remembering the special people that I associate with those items. It is the next best thing to having them there with me! Edited to say: I heard from a friend last night who also took this idea and made it her own! I LOVE to hear that. Please, please, please leave me a comment if you try this out. It just makes my heart sing!!! This friend used eggs that she dyed pink, and pink silk peonies. Now wouldn't that be gorgeous! I'm joining Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life For TABLETOP TUESDAY. It is my very first time to join a blog party. Please go have a look at all the beautiful tabletops!! Inspiration Galore!! Thanks Marty for hosting this awesome party!

Easter Centerpiece - My Version
A couple weeks ago, I shared an idea with you for an Easter centerpiece that I had seen Cathe Holden make, at Just Something I Made. Today I want to share with you, my version. All along I had been picturing daffodils from the Canadian Cancer Society in my centerpiece. So when hubby came home with two bundles for me recently, I knew I had to get my act together. (He's so sweet!) I did everything the same as Cathe, only my spoons were not all the same height. I put my favorite, large handled one in the front. Don't you love it? My spoons are all old ones that I received when a family member on my Dad's side passed away several years ago. I sure hope I can "unbend" them when I take this centerpiece apart. ;) I used elastic bands to keep the spoons in place, and then tied my ribbons around the jelly jar.
