Picture perfect Easter tables

I LOVE spring. I love it for the fact that things are, well, springing back to life. Birds are chirping, plants are blooming, the SUN, oh the SUN is out! This is no surprise coming from someone who packed up three children under five and stuffed them in a car to drive to Florida in the middle of a snowstorm.

If you’re hosting Easter, you’re probably swamped right about now thinking about the menu. If you’re me, and lucky enough to be surrounded by relatives who are professional chefs and bakers, you’re thinking about how you can best add to Easter brunch or dinner, well knowing that whatever you are going to cook/bake with your brood attached to your legs or asking to be your helper is going to pale in comparison to the masterpieces they’re going to make. Sorry people, but once the kiddos are older, I’ll make it up to you! (Somehow!) That being said, enter my contribution: table settings and gorgeous floral arrangements by the talented Alee Bonagura McCarthy, owner and creative force behindĀ Bright Blooms.



This beautiful arrangement is set in a wooden flower box centerpiece, and filled with freesia, lisianthus, alstroemeria and carnations. AND is smells really, really amazing!



This ceramic pedestal vase is filled with hydrangea (one of my two favorite flowers), tulips, clustered waxflower and button mums. Hello gorgeous colors!



How fun is this arrangement? This glass cylinder is filled with vibrant tulips and everyone’s favorite – jelly beans! (Try keeping your hands out of the vase. I only ate 5, I swear. 5.)
