Happy Easter

Hydranga2

Getting ready to set your Easter table? I love when family gathers to feast, pray and celebrate. Something special happens. Everything important feels….closer. These moments knit us together. Traditions are carried and birthed.

We had dinner at my sisters last night and her table was too gorgeous not to share. So here are some photo highlights to inspire your table.

 

TABLE

 

She never disappoints, this stunning table welcomed us when we arrived. It makes me feel special when a beautiful table has been set for me.

 

tulips

 

Simple tulips bunches in mason jars (I seriously heart tulips).  Hand-painted gold polka-dot eggs….I could die. A simple hem-stitched table runner was the perfect backdrop for all these touches.

 

dandelions

 

Even her little one contributed hand-picked dandelions, which look adorable in these teeny glass vases.  I need to find out where she scored these. My little one is always bringing me love from our weedy lawn.

Chalk painted eggs and milk glass. I’m obsessed with milk glass. It is so beautiful. And these eggs, what a cute idea. That is my penmanship if you are judging…

She blended the traditional meaning of Easter, with the fun adapted whimsy of today beautifully. 

 

bunnycookies

 

Treats for the kiddies. My incredibly talented friend over that The Whisk created these adorable bunny cookies for me. Her cookies are perfection. Her designs are genius. ALMOST too pretty to eat… You need to follow this girl on Instagram. Her creations are stunning.

We broke bread and said a blessing together.

This tradition comes from my dear friend Idelette, she bakes this gorgeous Challah bread every Friday night for her family. They speak blessings over one another and light candles.

Last night my sister and her husband were guided through this tradition for the first time.

I loved passed on traditions.

Have a wonderful Easter. Celebrate, feast, and keep Him close in your heart.
