A Night At the Symphony and My Easter Table



Easter week was a fun week for us. The night before Easter Sunday we went to the San Francisco Symphony with my oldest son's family. They gave us the tickets at Christmas as our gift. It was a live orchestra playing the soundtrack for the movie ET as the movie played behind them...



To say it was a wonderful experience would be an understatement. To be able to share it with family made it even that much better.
If you ever get a chance to go to a performance like this I highly recommend it.

It was fun dressing up and going out to a nice dinner in the private dining room, Wallis room right at the symphony hall. The meal was delicious and the service was impeccable.

Before we left we took some pictures......

It was fun to get all dressed up.

My sweet hubby and his antics was making me laugh!


The next day we had a wonderful family day. We missed one of my son's family, he had to work.

I promised I would show you all the finished Easter table so here it is.......

This years table I decided on a pink and black color scheme. I also decided to do a cute table, with pink and white candy on the table and little bunnies with carnation tails as name cards at each placesetting.

I wrote everyone's name in black at an angle on the pink bunny. The bunny template was found on Matthew Mead's blog, here.

 The candy turned out to be a fun addition for everyone that ate pieces throughout dinner.






One of the dishes I fixed was roasted honey carrots. I love to buy the multicolored carrots. I think they are almost as pretty as colored Easter eggs.....



Thank you for following along with me on my journey and I hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter.

You two look like a couple of love bugs. What a fun night!

Wow that must have been thrilling to go see the symphony. I love your cute Easter table that you created. What a fun idea with the candy scattered and being able to nibble away at it! The picture of the two of you is wonderful. The multi colored carrots are a great idea- what a fun way to add color!
