A Hoppy Easter tablesetting

With Easter almost here, the bunnies in store are multiplying like -- well, like rabbits.
May the Easter bunny hippity-hop into your home and become apart of your tablesetting,

How did the rabbit become so prominent in our celebration of Easter? Well, if the kids
ask, inform them that the furry fellow with the long ears was revered in ancient Egypt
as a symbol of the moon. And, inasmuch as the date of Easter is determined by the
full moon, voila! the concept of the Easter Bunny evolved. Easter always falls on
the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox (first day of spring)!

Easter is a time of the year when people get together to celebrate and it has always
been a grand family get-together at my Godmother’s house. After church and our
Easter egg hunt, everyone gathered around a beautiful table for a scrumptious dinner.

When setting your table this Easter, why not start with a central theme. Whether
your taste runs to whimsical Easter bunnies or spring florals, coordinating your
tablesetting around a central theme will make a more effective seasonal statement.
