A quick post today from yours truly on my wonderful Easter weekend! I hope you all enjoyed a lovely Sunday wherever you were. My Easter was particularly refined this year, and I wanted to share some of it with you.
This year it was a small and quiet affair – the Englishman and I had brunch with my parents after church. I made a Spring vegetable tart, fresh berries, home baked bread, and “egg nests” – perhaps my favorite part! And, of course, bottomless mimosas. I set the table with my favorite tablecloth, mismatched antique china, and a simple centerpiece in the middle. It was a small table, so a large tablescape or elaborate floral arrangement seemed out of place. The table (only half-set here, but I was running around trying to get ready for church!) looked very sweet and simple.
The most refined part of the day was my Easter basket! As an only child, my mother is still thrilled to make up a little Easter basket every year. Some years its plastic, some years its wicker. This year… it was Tiffany! I was so shocked to get my little Easter basket and find the Tiffany & Co. Berry Basket I had been lusting over.
My hope chest china set is Tiffany & Co.’s weave pattern – a traditional, celtic inspired pattern that looks like a woven basket. Over the years I have built up a collection of bowls, platters, serving wares, etc. This berry basket was an adorable piece that I am so happy I can add to the set!
Since its a berry basket, my mummy filled it with berry candies and cookies. I snacked on them all day long in between brunch, naps, spending time with family, and enjoying a big roast ham for dinner. It was exactly as Easter should be – filled with love, celebrations, and sweets!
