we plan on having a simple {cereal, eggs, and bacon} Easter breakfast, tending to our traditional festivities, and then we are dining out for Easter dinner. because our mornings can be crazy when six of us are all getting ready in our sunday best, i want to make breakfast special, and memorable for the holiday, but easy. a good combination, right?

for some time now i’ve wanted to create a custom placemat that could be used all year long. so, i chose the classic dots game and a leaf design that i can’t get enough of lately! both of these designs could be adapted to any holiday, birthday, or everyday meal use!

i printed the placemats on white and brown kraft paper card stock to get two different looks. i adore both of them, and can’t decide which i like best! the white placemats underneath the floral splashes of color is beautiful, and i love the brown underneath white dishes, clean and simple. which do you like best???

i recommend printing the placemats on card stock. if you do print & use the placemats, i would love to see a picture of your event or pretty tables! regardless of if you celebrate Easter, i hope you are planning a weekend filled with your passions and those you love. i don’t practice my faith exactly like my parents practiced theirs and i greatly respect and learn from friends who practice different faiths than mine, and yet we all make opportunities this time of year to create meaningful celebrations with our families and our children. make every day uniquely yours. i encourage you to soak up all that spring has to offer, it is not an ordinary season – it is an exceptional one.  happy hosting, friends! xo.
