Easter Sunday Prep

March 22, 2016

It seems too early for Easter! It’s usually in April so it’s feeling like it got here too quick! But it’s here! THIS Sunday! EEEK! Time to prep. We are hosting at our house so I’m ready to whip up some tasty food, mingle with family, and watch Ivy and Leo hunt for some eggs, which will certainly be the highlight :)

Here’s Ivy with her Easter egg hunt last year, tehehehe

Holy wow! She was so little and hardly had any hair! Hubs is looking good though :) Hehe

Love looking back at old photos :) Anyhoo!!!

Back to my brain… thinking about our Easter menu, we are going to center it with a big ham. We did a ham for Christmas and it was SOOO delicious, so we are going to use the same recipe from Pioneer Woman (Glazed Easter Ham) and hopefully I can replicate it! Here is some other inspiration I found while beep-bopping around the internet to complete our Easter menu.

BRUNCH. I LOVE brunch. This quiche, OMG. Looks sooo good.

And MIMOSAS! Or these grapefruit cocktails! MMMMM!

And I love all the salads out there right now! Spring makes me want to eat light and healthy (sometimes). I’ve been obsessed with arugula lately and this salad is so good. I like to add candied walnuts or pecans! Or this asparagus and strawberry salad looks yummy too!

Or you can do asparagus for a side! Which is what I’m going to do I think. Asparagus is really in season right now so I certainly plan to use it. I won’t like the smell of it later (YUCK) but I love the taste! This asparagus salad looks divine.

And isn’t this Easter egg dessert so cute!

But really, this strawberry shortcake is calling my name! Grand Marnier whipped cream, ExCUUUUUUUSE me?!

Can’t forget about the table setting. I’m obsessed with this part! This one below by the super talented Emily Henderson is SO AMAZING. The gold silverware (link here from Target!!) is the perfect compliment to the table full of pastels and pretty. The flowers are just beautiful. And OBSESSED with the mint linen napkin.

I also love these napkins. Very lovely detail. Probably going to go to World Market and pick those up :) And the white milk vases are gorg! Click here to go see more of this table setting below.

 Hope this helps organize your thoughts a little. Because mine are still out there somewhere! And if you still are searching for something to wear, I think this dress is so lovely.

Hope you have a Happy Easter! He has risen!
