It was time. Our winter pine wreath had sat on the front door for far too long. It was time to welcome in light blooms, neutral feathers, and something fresh as guests entered our home. Using a coupon and some artificial blooms from the dollar store, this wreath is the perfect note of spring for under $10.
As a little girl I would obsess over my easter egg craft project. I would wander up and down the aisles of my local Meijer grocery store. Whether it was a simple Paas kit, or marbling, glitter, or wax resists, I would dream about all the creative exploits that would land on the simple substrate of a white eggshell. Any moment for creativity was a welcome sight and regardless of the years that have passed, there’s something about dyeing Easter eggs that brings back a welcome DIY staple. This year we ditched artificial color and ventured into the world of natural dyeing processes. Whether dyed with tea, turmeric, or red cabbage, it’s was a fun project to explore.
Today we’re continuing the recipe roundup with this savory item from our Easter Brunch menu. With fresh vegetables from the farmer’s market, it provides the necessary protein to round out an otherwise sweet (and slightly carb-filled) table. (This is also the perfect brunch dish with friends gathered after a weekly trip to the farmer’s market. Or can be a great Saturday date with someone special. I digress, but you get the idea.) It’s a delicious and easy dish to make, paired with open windows, sunny skies, and slow Saturdays.
I’ve always loved gatherings and this season has been no different. With fresh blooms and the upcoming holiday, any excuse to share a great meal and celebrate among those you love is welcome. With the Easter holiday on Sunday, we’re spending the rest of the week getting you prepared. This brunch menu is light and slightly decadent. A table with a low lying arrangement, natural linen, dusty pink velvet, and pops of lavender, gives an updated nod to Easter without being overly literal. It is perfect for any spring gathering.
When it comes to spring time, there’s a bit of hope in the air as new beginnings, fresh air, and sunny days fill our window panes and bring warmth to our soul. On a practical side, it often times means sorting through the old and tired things, the things that are a few sizes too small and removing the excess for a fresh start.
