Decorating for Easter at my home

I know that people are curious about how my house is decorated for Easter, so I thought I'd give you a little peek. Laura Acuna, my housekeeper, always does such a nice job helping me with setting out the decorations. Many of these decorations are handmade and you can find instructions for all sorts of wonderful projects in my new Encyclopedia of Crafts, which, by the way, is #2 next week on the New York Times bestseller list! Congratulations to all who worked so hard on this volume.
This is an especially busy week with Passover and Easter being just a few days apart. I really love traditions and was so fortunate to attend a lovely Seder at my friends, the Slotkins. Now, I am gearing up for Easter and I am preparing a lunch for family and friends. The menu I am planning is:

Rack of lamb

Martha Stewart ham from Costo

Pierogi (I really miss Mom)

Artichokes

Asparagus

Garden salad from the cold house

Homemade rolls

Lemon meringue tarts

Chocolate sorbet

I wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday.
