Part III: Easter!

Ok, part III: easter brunch and hunt. 
Yes, easter is my favorite, and was a great end to a fabulous weekend. 
It started with church and ended with madmen, what more do you need to know? 
Oh, all the in-between fun of decorations and food, ok.

Decorations:


I made these eggs following this awesome tutorial and put most on the garland, and some in the basket,


I took some inspiration from the one and only Martha and put together some glass jars filled with candy and chocolate bunnies,


and made some easter egg candles.


My personal favorite were the table centerpieces: egg cartons with flowers in soil and some in dyed egg shells, inspiration from fleuretica:

And ashbash made some lovely neon eggs inspired by one of our favs, oh joy!



All together now:

 


Before everyone arrived, Jonathan hid all the candy filled eggs around the house.

He did a really good job. Maybe even too good of a job...


Food:
Obviously there was no shortage of yummy food for this party.
Jonathan brought deviled eggs, Shira & Ashley came with wine, and Casey continued the perfection of his dairy sculpting art by bringing a butter lamb (a lamb sculpted from butter):


I got a roasted turkey breast from honeybaked (my only shortcut people) and made a caramelized onion and spinach quiche, potato gratin, black eyed peas, biscuits, asparagus, citrus salad, and lemon cake. 


(Recipes to come next, this post is already so long)

Everything was perfect,
I just love easter.

PS.
Monday I began to find some eggs missed by the crew:
