Easter Weekend Wrap-Up

Easter is such a fun and joyful holiday. I just love everything about it and this Easter was no exception! This last weekend was spent filled with faith, family and food. Here are some fun photos to recap the weekend!

Travis's family has a huge Easter egg hunt every Easter weekend that has been going on over 35 years.
Each year a giant bin of eggs are hauled out of storage and then stuffed with treats. 
One of Travis's favorite parts of Easter. 
The coveted Golden Egg. There is only one and it is filled with the grand prize! The first year
Travis and I were dating he tore the butt of his pants on a tree limb trying
to get the golden egg from his Aunt Bean. 
Bible story time with Charlotte.
A special Easter craft for the kiddos while the Easter Bunny hides all of the eggs. 

Charlotte had the kids make stained glass crosses, super cute!
They all did a great job!

We went to Mass Sunday morning and then had the most delicious brunch at my parents,
followed by an Easter egg hunt for my nephews.

The boys thought it was SO fun, we had to hide the eggs again.
We cut it off at two times.
Coco may or may not have found a couple eggs herself and eaten the candy, yikes.
Dog owners of the year. 

Another family photo where Coco refuses to cooperate, she is such a gem.
 Happy Easter!

Easter Brunch Inspiration and Free Printable



Happy Palm Sunday! Easter is just a week away and I am sure you are all busy making/finalizing Easter Sunday plans. Growing up we usually had Easter brunch after going to mass instead of a "dinner." Sometimes we would go out to a special restaurant or sometimes it would be at home. I remember one Easter when we got home from church and I was so excited to finish looking in my Easter basket. Once we got inside the house, I ran over to my Easter basket (which I had laid in the sun), only to discover that my entire chocolate Easter bunny had melted and all that remained were two, tiny, hard candy eyes. My mom tried to get me another one from the store but it just wasn't the same. Life is traumatic when you are six. 

That story was the inspiration behind my Easter Brunch this year. Instead of doing place cards  I used tiny chocolate Easter bunnies and wrote each person's initials on them with food gel. Make sure to keep them in the fridge if they are going to sit out more than a couple hours, so you and your guests do not experience the same trauma I did. Since white is the color of Easter I used off-white dinnerware and white, tatted doilies as place mats. Tulips scream Spring and Easter so I placed several stems of them in small, mismatched, glass vases. Easy, quick and simple. Scroll to the bottom for your free Easter Menu printable!
