Beautiful Maddy has been a wonderful help this week and she even did some Easter decorating to surprise me! She knew that I wanted to take part in Lynette's Easter decor party because I had started decorating our side table.
Alas, this is as far as I got with my easter decorating....that is until Maddy stepped in!
Have a look at what my mini-Martha did for me!
First she found all the Easter things that she could from around the house and then she set a beautiful table for dinner with our Spode Blue Italian side plates and Strachan Silverware. She thought it might be nice for Susan's Tablescape Thursday! This girl is such a decorator!
She used our vintage napkins and some other Easter decorations as napkin rings.
She then found a basket and some plastic straw and made a beautiful centre-piece for the table. Big Al didn't want to miss out on the action and offered some decorating advice!
Aren't the little Easter egg picks cute!
Didn't she do a beautiful job! She even knew where to place the silverware!
She then made this beautiful display for my cloche!
She then helped me make dinner! Yes indeed this girl is amazing! She made the dressing for this divine spinach,apple and pecan salad! I am probably breaking some blogging rules here by participating in so many linky parties but I thought this would be a great recipe to share for Foodie Friday with Michael Lee at Designs by Gollum!
I just found out that I am a finalist for the Foodie Friday Photo Contest! How exciting! Thank you Michael Lee for including me!
I am so happy!!!
The salad is made of 1/2 cup of toasted pecans, 2 sliced apples (we used Red delicious) and spinach leaves. The dressing is so easy, just mix 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 1 teaspoon of mustard. We used dijon but wholegrain would be beautiful too. We had lots of spinach so we doubled the recipe for the dressing. It was delicious!
Can you believe how amazing my daughter is! Thank you Maddy! You saved the day!
Best wishes to you all at this beautiful time of year!
