On a rainy Sunday morning what better to do than find your inner entertaining self. If we can’t invite friends to dine, why not still plan a special dinner party for your family complete with nice linens, candles, great food and atmosphere……

Start with these candles, love the green but I am a green person.

And while I love the wipe and clean Caspari place mats I blogged about earlier this month, these are scrumptious.  See them here.  They also come in blue and pink.

 These place mats are also to die for.  See them here.

Can’t wait for the release of Christopher Spitzmiller’s long awaited book and it’s coming in March.  Order your signed copy here.

I have these plates in orange (now discontinued sadly to report) but you can add them to your collection in blue or gray.  The blue ones can be found at the moment at the Juliska Outlet.  See them here.

My favorite thing about Easter, honestly, is Russell Stover Jelly Beans.  CVS, Rite Aid or Amazon. You can’t eat just one.  Love these!

And if you happened to watch two Derby prep races yesterday, we now have a few very clear front runners.  Essential Quality smoked the competition in the fog and mud yesterday at Oaklawn.  The top two-year-old colt is now the top three-year-old colt. I got goosebumps watching the enormous stride on this very well-bred gray son of Tapit. Godolphin may have their first Derby winner if they can keep this one in bubble wrap.

And in Florida, the favorite to win the Fountain of Youth yesterday at Gulstream also won, Greatest Honor, another Tapit colt. This was a slow race though and no mud. But time will tell.

Stay safe!  Enjoy your day.
