I know I’m a few days late, but I still wanted to share our Easter celebrations with y’all! We had the most beautiful day celebrating with friends and couldn’t of asked for a more perfect day! This was our first holiday in our new home and we were so thrilled to host Easter brunch this year!
As soon as the Spring weather decided it was here to stay I’ve been craving lots of light and airy dinners! Homemade spring rolls, lettuce wraps & salads on top of salads( even my after dinner chocolate was spring inspired. Lemon milk chocolate & almond coconut dark chocolate.)That was my same inspiration for Easter Brunch..An organic light and airy feel. It turned out exactly how I imagined it.
The night before we tried a unique egg dying trick. I’m all about all natural..So we gave it a go! I came across a lot of different techniques but we stuck with only trying one this year since Kinley is still pretty young. who knew red cabbage would give you sweet little robbins eggs!
( FYI your house may or may not have a very distinct aroma during this)
- Lavender lemonade with a sprig of dried lavender.
- Crispy shallot, chives & dill deviled eggs.
- Citrus salad with honey and mint.
- Smoked ham with a pineapple bourbon glaze.
- Roasted potatoes with spring herbs and lemon zest.
- Dutch baby with lemon curd and blueberries.
Before brunch was served we had Kinley’s first Easter egg hunt. I wish I could take credit for this fun idea but I relied on good ol’ Pinterest for this one. To make it a little easier on her we tied a balloon to each Easter egg so she could see where they were. To be honest.. It may of been more fun for the adults then her. Once Kinley found and opened one.. She was stuck on eating all the Annie’s Bunnie Grahams inside. It made for a pretty special first Easter Hunt.
All afternoon we kept looking up at the beautifully green pecan trees in our backyard & thanking God for everything.
I hope y’all had a wonderful Easter!
