I hope you all had a lovely Easter whether being with family or kicking back and enjoying some relaxation! I had a little bit of both and was able to soak up those beautiful sun rays this weekend! How great is it to be able to entertain inside and out! We had two sunny days, a bit breezy, but still lovely nonetheless.
We had a houseful on Saturday and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I would cook for 50 people if it meant I didn’t have to travel for a holiday, it’s exhausting and takes the enjoyment out of it. So, thank you family for coming to visit us this Easter! Saturday was full of much eating and playing cards on the patio. We invested in a Storage Bench for our patio as our shed is overflowing plus it adds two more spots for guests to stretch out and work on their tan! We enjoyed delicious BBQ and relaxed all evening!
I splurged on some fresh flowers for the weekend, they just make everything so fresh and happy. Zoe enjoyed eating all of the “greens” that came along with the sunflowers. I like to put small, simple flowers in the bathroom and larger, fuller flowers in the kitchen. I didn’t want to unpack them they looked so nice!
I ordered this sweet Canvas Bunny Garland from ETSY and I am so obsessed. It’s so different. Can I leave it up all year long? I slacked a little bit so it was only up for about a week before Easter, I’ll just have to leave it up longer to get full enjoyment out of it! Aw Peter Cotton Tail.
My other super cute score from Maika Goods, these super cute Gold Dot Canvas Baskets. Great products and amazing Customer Service!
If you follow me on Instagram (@setme25) you saw Kevin’s Easter Basket a few days early.
I think it came out super cute and I even Origami’d an envelope for his Beer Fest Ticket. Winning fo’real
Of course Easter consisted of eating, eating and lots more eating! Who’s complaining? The Duck and all the sides came out absolutely amazing, still drooling.
The Seafood Crepes seriously were fab! Kevin made the crepe’s a day before and kept them covered in the fridge – that’s a huge task that can be done ahead so you can enjoy company and not be a stove-slave. We had Roast Duck, Fingerling Potatoes par-boiled and finished in the Duck Fat (yes the arteries are starting to close), Steamed Asparagus, Pan Roasted Radishes in Lemon Juice and a hint of Vinegar, with a side of lightly dressed Mixed Greens. Seriously good.
Our bellies were full and food was gone…cue for everyone to hit the road. I couldn’t be more happy to spend the weekend with our family and share our love for food with everyone else. It was a great three days and now back to reality.
This weekend we head to Boston for our annual family vaca. Typically, we go up and spend time with my Brother for his Birthday – it should prove to be another fantastic weekend of indulging.
Have a great week everyone!
