Considering how depressing, lonely and downright scary last year’s Easter was, it’s no surprise I was in the mood to go all out this year for an Easter celebration. With the arrival of spring weekends and perfect weather (and the vaccine!) I have just felt the desire to entertain and see all the people and do all the things. The kids had Good Friday and Easter Monday off, so it was a full four day weekend of enjoying Easter.
We kicked the festivities off with a cute little egg hunt here for the neighborhood crew. My sweet friend and I prepped things while the kids were in school and hid over 500 Easter eggs in our backyard. We had a great turn out and the kids were beyond excited! We even had a very special guest show up- the Easter Bunny himself!
This was the best we could do getting the kids to smile but as you can see- they were beyond excited to do an Easter egg hunt.
The moms had to get in on the fun and snap a pic with the Easter Bunny too.
My friends brought the cutest desserts and the kids went crazy for the cupcakes.
With no school on Friday, I surprised the boys with some Easter Bunny cinnamon rolls for breakfast. How cute are those!?
Then on Friday night we hosted a family for dinner. I kept the menu super simple and did a charcuterie board with some Easter accents. The Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies were perfect for the kids to grab and the cheese didn’t stand a chance with the grown ups.
For dinner I made Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork – it was easy and delicious! I will be sharing the recipe soon.
And last but not least, for dessert I made this Peep Smores Board to do smores outside on the porch.
A friend brought me these cute robin’s eggs as a hostess gift last week and I scattered them around the house for my Easter decor. Other than that, I didn’t do much this year but loved this simple detail.
We took it easy on Saturday and had my Mother in Law over. We had family movie night and watched the movie The Rescue from 1988. I remember watching it as a little girl and loving it. The boys LOVED it! (side note: the movie is rated PG but there was some totally unnecessary bad words which was unfortunate)
We were originally going to be traveling to see family for the weekend so we missed out on getting in person reservations at our church. Which turned out to be perfectly fine and we just made the best of things at home on Sunday morning. This year, the Easter Bunny brought some fun basket items, but he also decided to stuff lots of eggs with money. This was super fun for the boys because they are VERY into earning money to buy their own things.
We ended the weekend meeting my in-laws for dinner and I was thankful to have a reason to get everyone in their pastels.
