The loveliness of one of my favorite holidays is almost here.

Time to pull out the Dollar Tree water goblets and champagne glasses to set a pretty table!

And to think ahead to the menu and a drink that everyone will enjoy!

This year – Madeline’s Lemonade from the Better Homes and Garden site. We didn’t include the raspberries, which is optional.

My water goblets are in my kitchen, easy access. But I also have a box of 24 out in storage in the garage, along with 2 plastic containers that each hold 6 champagne glasses.

Since we’re not regular champagne lovers, we do like to use those glasses for special holidays.

Last year we garnished the drinks with little pansies, which is a very mild sweet to tart flavor.

For drinks you really don’t need to worry about people eating the flowers, because most guests will sip the drink and eventually take the flower out of the glass.

But for those wondering what is edible and what is not, this site links you to full color photos of specific flowers to help with identification. But as they say, don’t depend solely on the photos. Be sure you know exactly what you choose to serve. :)

Back to the prettiness and deliciousness of Easter.

I’d love to hear what drinks you’ll be serving on this glorious day?
