I am thoroughly enjoying all your comments about your upcoming Easter celebrations! (and those who have relaxing weekend plans that don't involve Easter too!) I love reading about your family traditions; such fun, happy times.
1. We're headed back to D.C. this weekend to celebrate our birthdays as well as Easter with family and friends. Of course we will also get to see the cherry blossoms! I am like a little kid on Christmas morning when I am around those little pink blossoms; positively giddy I tell you. I literally take hundreds of pictures, I can't get enough!
(CUTE! Cherry blossom pillows from Restoration Hardware Baby)
1 oz Southern Comfort (or other bourbon)
1 oz Amaretto
1 oz orange juice
1 oz cranberry juice
1 orange wedge
1 maraschino cherry
(I am going to substitute orangecello for OJ!)
4. Check out all the pretty pinks and greens in this wedding, featured on the fabulous site, Style Me Pretty. I am absolutely in love with the bride's wedding gown! Don't you love all the paper lanterns too?
5. This lovely tablescape via Traditional Home. I love everything about it! The first thing to catch my eye was the small posy of lisianthus on the table, they are one of my favorite flowers. I love how the designer playfully selected the centerpieces and table settings. Looks like a fun party to me!
6. Lovely JMW posted "In Your Easter Bonnet" this week, and it got me thinking a lot about Easter dresses that I wore as a child. So many fun memories of Easter egg hunts with my siblings and cousins, wearing smocked dresses and easter bonnets. My grandmother used to be an amazing and brilliant seamstress. She designed my cousin Lauren and I the most incredible dresses and bonnets with no patterns, no measurements..she could just look at us and know exactly how it would fit. She even made matching dresses for our dolls! We'd always change into a "play" dress in the afternoon, so as not to ruin our "pretties."
Speaking of little dolls, check out these sweet Easter outfits below.
Makes my baby fever kick in BIG TIME!
