I tend to veer away from getting too commercialized when it comes to Easter baskets. Gone is yearly the tradition of getting a bright, new (very plastic) Easter basket filled with fake, plastic green grass and fake, plastic, disposable eggs. I cringe just thinking about how wasteful that all was! I like to purchase items that kids will use over and over again or that I can repurpose.[Read more…] about Gift Guide | Easter Basket Favorites with World Market

After planning my little brunch the other day, I couldn’t help thinking more about my kid’s Easter baskets. Of course they’re all about the candy, but I try to strike a good balance with other fun items (not filled with sugar!). Here are some adorable Easter items that I have my eye on this year. I already have a few of them, as you might have noticed from this post, and there’s a few I’ll will be ordering very soon! What do you put in your kid’s Easter baskets? Any fun items I should check out?

My kids and I saw the new Peter Rabbit last Sunday. It was cute, feel good kid’s movie with shenanigans that reminded me of old-school cartoons. The kids loved it, so when World Market asked if I’d be interested in showcasing their new Peter Rabbit collection, I thought it would be fun to set up an easy, simple Easter-style brunch. I like to keep presentation and entertaining relatively simple. It’ a lot of work cooking, cleaning, decorating, etc! Why not keep things clean, appealing and functional? That’s my motto.
So I came up with this cute, minimalist table setup for the kid’s and a couple of their neighbor-friends.
What do you guys think? Will they love it? I think Arden and Conrad will be pretty happy 😉 And don’t worry we’re still doing an Easter egg hunt. Just instead of candy filled eggs, I’ll use hard-boiled eggs and plastic eggs filled with bunny tails.
I found this fun sweater for Conrad, isn’t the bunny just too cute? And the jeans and suspender set is from H&M, I couldn’t resist 🙂
Here’s my little man in his Easter outfit (it’s from Target).
I took some paper mache eggs I had lying around from a couple of years ago took some good ole’ primer and painted ’em white ( I know, I know of all colors, lol). They were your stereo-typical Easter colors, but I needed a little switch up. So a coat or two of primer later I had a nice base to work with. I took a couple of different sized sharpies (fine, regular and large) and went to town. I decided to dedicate a different egg to a different one of my Pinterest boards: Addicted to Stripes, Addicted to Crosses and Addicted to Spots. They’re resting on a bed of moss in one of my favorite vintage hobnail dishes.
I also used a fun little strawberry plant that we got a Lowe’s to add a little dimension to my store-bought flowers. And a table-scape wouldn’t be complete with out a candle now would it? I put it in the base of my tagine, because it went with my black and white hipster theme 😉 And to fill out the space I added a small boxwood wreath.
And there you have it easy-peasy spring decor! Well, except for the drawing part, that was kind of hard 😉 Hope you have a great Easter weekend!

A few weeks ago during spring break, we decided to do a very stereotypical thing for spring break…We went to Florida! Where did we go in Florida? No, not Disney World, no, not Miami, no, not Ft. Lauderdale. We went to Rosemary Beach. Now you may have that blank look that most of our friends gave us when announcing our destination. Or if you’re from the Mid-West or the South you’ll know EXACTLY where. Rosemary Beach is a lesser known beach destination on the gulf coast (commonly referred to as the Emerald Coast) or inner coast of Florida. There’s a tiny little strip of a highway called 30A rolling through a bunch of gorgeous little beach towns each with their own distinct personality. We mostly spent our time in Rosemary beach and it’s gorgeous cousin, Alys Beach, just a hop, skip and a bike ride down 30A.[Read more…] about 36 Hours | Rosemary Beach Florida
