Dig In

Hi Friends, My computer is down so I am at my daughters trying to post this belated Easter table.    After the first and last Tablescape entry.  I started getting a little more planned with my ideas.   I actually did another Easter setting that I never had a chance to post or use....(Thats another day and story.)  Anyway, My grandkids came for a visit one evening and I asked them.  What do you think of Grandma's Easter Table?  The oldest one looked at me with little expression and said...... "We're Boys".    So I started on a quest to do a boys Tablescape that they would actually notice.  Let me say here, it wasn't easy.  Easter is so pastel and pink even the blues look feminine.   I think it actually turned out cute and they loved it too.  Last minute I had to move it off my table at home and transfer it to my sons house...
I think my most clever idea is one you can't really see.  The napkin rings are rubber flippers bugs I got from the easter Isle.  The drinks are bubbles, the egg in the shovel is a wash cloth and the easter grass is edible.
This is Andy my second grandson... Look at that red hair....The pictures look so good because my daughter is a photographer!  I have to stop here because I am using her computer and she wants it back.  (I got  the eye roll Laurie!!)  As I said before my computer is down and I am leaving for Seattle in the morning so I guess that is good timing.
