A Colorful Easter and the Best Parts of Celebrating

Pink Tulips, Manicure, and Candy for Easter

If there’s one thing to know about me, it’s that I simply love holidays.

Every special day throughout the year has its own unique meaning and tradition. Some days are times to step back, reflect, and give thanks. Other days are moments of fun and silly-ness.

What makes any celebration extra special is the addition of these fabulous items:

  • family & friends
  • great food
  • cute babies
  • pies, cakes, cookies, & ice cream
  • cocktails

Add in some good conversation and a new outfit, and I’m literally all set.

This Sunday, my family and I celebrated Easter. Not only was it a beautiful spring day, but our celebration also included everything on that list – and then some.

Pink Tulips, Manicure, and Candy for Easter

I got in the spirit by adding a few pops of pink to my life. Happy to say those tulips are still looking pretty today!

Easter morning arrived and my sister and I took a moment to enjoy the gorgeous weather – with a mimosa, of course.

Easter Sunday

After mimosas, we joined our mother and my sister’s boyfriend in the car. Off to New Jersey we went. When we arrived at my uncle’s house, we were greeted by the same blue skies…

Another holiday favorite of mine? Decorations.

New Baby in the Family

Cue the cute baby! I was so happy to meet the newest addition to our family: my cousin’s son, Owen. Just look at that bow tie! He’s a little gentleman 🙂

I love to see everyone moving around, mingling with each other. We certainly had a large crowd!

The early part of the day is great because everyone spends time catching up and sharing some laughs.

But soon, our eyes began to wander. It was almost time for the Easter feast.

And we were definitely prepared for a feast! That’s what I call a holiday table.

I just love this shot. The second floor of the house overlooks the downstairs so I was able to snap everyone in action.

Ok, time to take my seat…right near the mashed potatoes, thank you.

Easter Sunday Dinner

A perfect plate: Easter ham, lamb, mashed potatoes, and asparagus. The cauliflower was still making its rounds, but I was hungry. What a delicious meal!

Rounding out my holiday list: pies, cakes, cookies, & ice cream. I think we had three of the four.

Carrot Cake

I went straight for the carrot cake, while my aunt showed off her manicure.

Easter Sunday

Cute baby #2! Hannah spotted my carrot cake, so I stopped to share. How could I resist?

Returning to my seat, I set down a fresh piece and smiled.

Not only did the cake look lovely, the day had been lovely, too.
