Springtime Easter Brunch
Happy Happy Easter! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter surrounded by your loved ones. We had a wonderful, over-the-top brunch at home, hid way too many Easter eggs (& we will probably still be finding some for months), and played the Saran Wrap Ball Game, which has become a tradition for our family at all holidays.
This is the first year my nephew really understands Easter and was excited about the Easter Bunny coming to hide eggs for him, which made the whole day so so fun. His reaction every time he found an egg was hysterical and he kept saying, "That silly Easter Bunny!".
Now that we're finally in a large enough home, I'm getting so much more into hosting events. I think in another life, I'd get paid to do party planning. Ah. Dream big, kid. Haha. I just love creating parties and gatherings that aren't just simply a get together, but creates really beautiful memories.
The menu consisted of ham, donuts, bunny-shaped cinnamon rolls, jalepeno artichoke dip, berries with marshmallow dip, lorraine quiche, spinach quiche, butter garlic monkey bread rolls, deep fried deviled eggs, cheesecake, and, of course... mimosas.
I rolled the green utensils in orange napkins to make them look like carrots, and made the deep fried eggs using a recipe that I found on Facebook. I shaped the cinnamon rolls into little bunny heads, and I thought the mini milk jugs with the straws were a nice whimsical twist to keep the mood light and bring us all back to childhood.
In contrast, I set the table more simply, with the Adult Easter Baskets at each setting, and a beautiful spring arrangement that I picked up grocery shopping- if I can offer you any advice, buy yourself flowers once in a while. Nothing makes me happier than having fresh flowers around the house.
The day was spent so happily enjoying each other's company. Holidays are such an important day to ignore your phone, forget about what your hair looks like, and laugh and laugh and laugh until your tummy hurts. Happy Easter, little Easter Bunnies!
