Easter Egg Hunt & Brunch

Happy Easter weekend!!  It truly has been the sweetest week at home with Waverly Maye, I have loved being with her all day so very much & wish it hadn't gone by so fast.  So glad to have a weekend of celebrating to look forward to, I plan to take full advantage of these next couple of days. Something tells me Monday will hurt a little more than usual after a week-long vacation. ;)
 
Last weekend, we hosted an Easter Egg Hunt & Brunch for a few of our friends.  It's so funny to think how life has changed for all of us, our celebrations used to start at 10 (am) & last until the early hours of the morning & now, we plan around when the kids need to nap.  Everything might not run as smoothly (you know, a few meltdowns & blowouts here & there), but at the end of the morning, seeing all these little ones interact is just the sweetest thing.
 
I emptied out Waverly's Easter basket so that she could use it for the hunt & of course, brought out her bunny shirt to make sure we were in theme.
 

I loved decorating our table & bar cart with the pretty pastels of the season, spring sights just make me so very happy!!  It's hard not to go completely crazy & cover the house in a whole bunch of floral festiveness, yet I settled on just our downstairs.  I know my husband appreciated that, for some reason he doesn't love pink & purple as much as I do.

 We made an egg & cheese casserole & ham biscuits for the brunch, both were perfect for a big crowd plus we were able to make them the night before.  For the kids, I used our egg crate for some seasonal fruit & treat cups from Target for mini-waffles.


Waverly woke up that morning with a cold, she didn't have a fever but I felt so bad for her since after our Easter bunny fail, I was thinking this would be totally her thing.  Even though she wasn't 100% her silly self, she loved being around the other kids & especially eating the treats I hid in the eggs.  I consider that a success, & also her warm-up for one more little hunt over the weekend.

  21. I served Brooklyn's fruit inside Easter eggs yesterday too! She loved opening the eggs after the egg hunt, so I thought she'd love opening them & finding fruit and she sure did!!

    How old is your daughter? She looks like the same as my daughter, 18 months on Friday.

    Thanks! :)
