~chocolate eggs and stuff~


Hello peeps, had your fill of chocolate eggs? Me too! 

They are yummy, aren’t they!


We had unseasonably warm weather for our Easter long weekend up in the Pacific Northwest, what a treat! 

It was my turn to host Easter dinner, so here are a couple of peeks at our day and decorating, super simple and springy.

White flowers in small ironstone tureens. I had planned on white miniature roses and tulips, all sold out! These worked too.

Flatware dumped stacked in a pretty container.


More eggs and bunny marshmallows.

We had some Easter and coastal and spring all happening on the mantle! I think this vintage egg cup is so sweet, even if it is missing one eye.


These Easter nests were yummy, I’ll have to remember to post the recipe before next Easter! Loving the robin’s egg blue of these eggs. 

Here’s a quick trivia fact for you: Cadbury chocolate eggs in the US and Canada are not the same, the US ones are bigger, the Canadian ones are prettier colors. All sampled as a courtesy to bring you this important fact of course!!


Of course the day would not be complete without an egg hunt! Do we ever outgrow egg hunts? I think not…


Look easy to find? Hmmm, actually took them a while. Sometimes the obvious spots are the best! 

Certain teenage boys in the home had to line up their loot military style and engage in bunny battles. No comment.


My favorite part of the day : having the family share what Jesus means to them.

Well I’m off to raid the kids stash, hope you had a lovely Easter.

Lovely features! Oh and the chocolate eggs look so yummy. I really like how you displayed the forks. Adorable idea. Hugs and blessings...Cindy
P.S. No...we never do outgrow EASTER eggs or all the good stuff that goes with it. My husband and I colored Easter Eggs together this year!!!! We love it!

Your Easter decor is beautiful. Love all of the details.

Would you believe that we forgot to dye eggs this year? How could I forget? I guess it's because my two oldest don't even think about it and my youngest, who is 9, didn't even mention it. We did have a little hunt at church so that was fun.

Blessings to you today. Amy

I love the malted milk eggs! But I purposely didn't buy any candy and now your post has me craving it. Did you know you can freeze it?

I love your table decorations, the flowers are beautiful!

Military style ...... love it!!! I think that Easter is one of my favorite holidays. Not only is it pretty but family gets together and the weather has a touch more warmth to give us all hope.

Absolutely gorgeous photos my friend! The decor is stunning. My favorite is that container holding your silverware. I started throwing away some of the candy today. But I couldn't bear to part with the chocolate just yet!

Pretty, pastel photos! Looks like you had a wonderful Easter with your family. Of course our eggs are bigger here, we just have to supersize everything :(
Loved your photos!

Great idea with your flatware. I picked up a few of those pots, too. I just never thought of using them for anything but plants.
Now I am inspired!
