Easter Decorations & Link Party Dining Rooms Highlights

Hopefully everyone had a great holiday weekend and a nice Easter (if you celebrate of course). We had a blast with a neighborhood Easter egg hunt, a relaxing afternoon, and a ham and homemade mac & cheese dinner with great friends. Wanted to share a few quick pics of my Easter dining table before showing some highlights from last week's link party.

Serendipitously I had forgotten to take the bows off the chandelier after Kim's baby shower, so I just added a silk flower garland that I bought at A.C. Moore before the shower but used on the mantel. 

I couldn't resist folding the napkins like bunnies. Ridiculous but so cute. These directions from Good Housekeeping are very easy to follow, even after a mid-afternoon glass of wine.
My five year old made everyone's place cards. I love place cards because then there's no debate where everyone is going to sit - they just sit. I think people like not having to think when they sit down for dinner.

Enough with Easter. The decorations are coming down tonight.

Now for last week's link part favorites! Thanks to everyone who linked up their dining room ideas to the HOUSEography House Tour. I hope you are having as much fun as I am looking at everyone's great ideas.
