Hannah, our adorable sous chef and flower girl, had our table decked out with spring flowers that she arranged in lavender Easter baskets trimmed with Easter grass found at the 99 cent store and white napkins tied up with daffodils and ribbon.  

Roast Pork Dinner

Roast Pork Loin with Cherry Pinot Noir Sauce, Wild and White Rice Pilaf, Roasted Asparagus
