Happy Easter from our house to yours

Sorry for the delayed Easter post. One day late isn't too bad right? I didn't think so. We had a fantastic Saturday spent with friends and family at our house. We combined Easter and Spring birthdays to have one fun filled day of eating and gathering with family and friends. Just so you feel included, here's how it went down.

Greeted by Yours Truely and of course my good lookin' hubs, just in time for some good eats.

Since the weather was so pretty on Saturday I wanted to eat and spend some time outdoors. And we had the perfect newly stained deck, we had to enjoy it!
I spent several minutes getting the table set. Seriously, it took me no time. I spent waaay more time trying to get up all the pet hair off the floor than setting the table. For. Real.  The tablecloth was given to us as a wedding gift. And the table runner is just some folded fabric I got on clearance a few years ago that I have no idea what to do with now, but love it so much. It fits perfectly here.
A beautiful bouquet from Trader Joe's makes the pink and green theme come together. Very Spring-y I think. And the price was right at only $3! Clearance. Love TJ's!

We sat outside all afternoon and most of the evening enjoying the birds singing, the cool breeze and each other's company. The food was fabulous. Honey-baked ham, deviled eggs, chocolate covered strawberries (thanks Emily!), fresh asparagus, fruit salad, rolls and plenty of lemon pie. Oh, and these:


Aren't the cute? Vanilla-Lemon cupcakes. Because how do you celebrate birthdays without cake?!?
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter with your loved ones.
