Easter Brunch Treats

One of my favorite memories growing up is Easter brunch. Since I can remember (3? 4?) every Easter is celebrated with a big brunch. Sometimes we would go to a resort for brunch and sometimes we would just make it at home as a family. When we were living in San Antonio we would always go to the Hill Country Hyatt. After eating we would walk the grounds of the resort and just enjoy the day as a family. The Hyatt has a giant lazy river and every year we would try to convince my parents to let us just jump in and swim. Finally, it was our last year in San Antonio and my grandparents flew in to celebrate Easter with us. After our annual brunch my parents surprised us by announcing that we would get the spend the rest of the day at the pool. Such a sweet memory.

Another year there was someone dressed as a giant Easter bunny walking around greeting guests. My younger sister Gabriela was terrified. I mean absolutely positively terrified of that giant bunny. Looking back at the pictures from that day I can understand her horror a little better. Then when I was in high school, we started making our own big Easter brunches at home. Just so many wonderful memories! Like my Dad going out to buy a waffle iron just so we could have waffles at our brunch. I hope to give my family the same kind of precious memories...

That is why I was so excited when Treat sent me an email about styling some cards! They provided some beautiful cards that I used to create a center piece and decorate the serving table with. This shoot was so much fun. Most of the pictures were taken during nap time but as soon as the boys were awake, I pulled them into the shenanigans!

I seriously had way too much fun putting this together! What a wonderful way to celebrate Easter! Putting all of this together was so easy. Again, everything I did was easily achieved during nap time. I'll have a "behind the scenes" post about the brunch soon, but for now, here is where you can find what I used...
