We started the weekend on Friday, just J and I, by dying a few Easter eggs, the old-fashioned way with Paas and colored tablets.
The rest of the time was spent getting the house and food prepared for our event this morning. We had a semi-elaborate menu of: Tomato Caprese bites, fresh fruit, picnic ham, Greek lamb kebabs with tzatziki sauce, deviled eggs, garden salad, mini twice-baked potatoes, chocolate covered strawberries and cupcakes. Yum-o! I kind of went a little overboard, but it was so worth it--if you're going do it, do it big, right??
Big jars of drinks: Orange Lemonade and Lime Rickeys Raspberry Coconut cupcakes (you've probably seen these on here before...)We had baskets for all the kids, hidden throughout the house, an Egg hunt, and played a few games with prizes.
I made the stickers on custom jelly bean packets and this Egg hunt champ bow with this great stamp set from Papertrey Ink and used lots of pretty ribbons.Our Egg hunt champ, who won with 20 eggs.
