Our Easter Brunch

Since brunch is our favorite kind of meal, this Easter we decided to celebrate with an Easter Brunch. We planned out our menu, planted our wheat grass for our version of a Easter ‘basket’, picked out the most gorgeous flowers to arrange, and baked some delicious breads/cakes which included these delicious Lemon Honey Cakelets¬†in our beehive bundlett pan and a Orange Yogurt Cake.

When our guests arrived (my sister and brother-in-law) we finished setting up the table and my sister help my mom and I put together the rest of the delicious (and yet very easy to put together) food for our brunch.

We picked up these adorable bunny plates from Pier 1.
Our version of Easter Baskets…

Once the last plate of food was carried out to the deck, where we would enjoy the fine weather, we all gathered to enjoy the meal we’d worked together to create.
