{HAPPY EASTER to all my readers in 163 countries!}

Wishing all of my readers in 163 countries a Happy Easter!
May you have a lovely family time with hopefully sunshine to brighten this day of new life even more.
A real egg with our Villeroy & Boch eggs, filled with Pelargonium Appleblossom Rosebud...
The egg is the symbol of New Life and therefore associated with Easter.
I'd like to show you also the beautiful architecture used at the Kruisherenhotel in Maastricht, The Netherlands - click: Kruisherenhotel Maastricht | Design between heaven and earth. In one of the Chateau hotels, St. Gerlach, the US President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush were staying when visiting the American War Cemetery Margraten. It truly is a Design between Heaven and Earth. 
Click here for seeing how they did design an EGG in their reception.

View of the egg from above but the previous link will give you a much better idea. 
We were fortunate for having toured this Camille Oostwegel Château Hotel, in October of 2005 with our Goddaughter Elvira, her parents (our dear friends) and even two Dublin, Georgia friends. Just wanted to share this with you as the symbol of the egg is relevant to this special Easter day.
Back to the Villeroy & Boch eggs..
Sheep as place card holder...
Pink Pelargonium Rosebuds now fill the egg vases from Villeroy & Boch.

HAPPY EASTER TO ALL OF YOU!
