Homemade Poppyseed Soap

There were so many great links last week

Easter Table Setting

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!
I promised I'd share our Easter table setting with you all.
File these ideas away for next year!

I took some spring floral picks and laid them down the center of the table,
inserting 3 LED chunky candles.
Simple and elegant.

Funtastic Friday Link Party #122


Welcome to Funtastic Friday 122!
We're looking forward to enjoying a Easter weekend with our girls.

This week at the hive
Kristin shared some simple ideas on decorating with a Christ centered theme for Easter.
You can also watch this moving video about the Prince of Peace
and 8 ways to bring peace into your life.

If you still need some inspiration for your Easter Sunday dinner table,
we have 15 fun Easter table centerpiece and place card ideas.
Watch for a post this weekend on how we set our own Easter table!

You all may have noticed that the party shrunk considerably last week and might have had a problem submitting a link. Inlinkz tells me that all links identified as spam were prevented from linking up. Check your blog to make sure you don't have any malicious activity lurking beneath the code.
Now on to this week's Funtastic Party!
