Easter Reminiscent and Spring time Celebration

Easter is always a time for flowers and I couldn't resist tucking them in the egg cups
with a larger bouquet in the center.
The lilacs are just beginning to bloom a deep rose.
The dogwoods are a beautiful pink.
And oh those sweet smiling faces of pansies sitting about.
What would Easter be without the semblance of chocolate bunnies and other animals,
though ours were only for looks as there was no chocolate here.
Tea time brought sugar cookies with violets from the garden,
dates stuffed with the best ever pecans,
carrot cupcakes, and lemon madeleine's too.
Tea served was a high mountain oolong, which paired so well with the sweets.
For those not drinking caffeine there was a love Tulsi tea.

When Easter comes for me it is also a time to celebrate Springtime.
A time to open the cocoon and spread my wings outdoors.
Happy Springtime and Earth Day too, dear friends.

I love how you described your dinner in your note to me! And tea time looks gorgeous -- your table is to die for -- what a good idea to use your egg cups for the pansies!
