Easter Weekend

Easter Basket

Happy belated Easter!  Did you have a lovely weekend?  We had great weather, (anything above 50 degrees qualifies as great in Spring in Chicago.)  Little Bug started off Easter Sunday with an egg hunt in the backyard.

Easter dinner, roast chicken


Easter dinner, lemon pudding cakes


I made a simple but yummy meal of roast chicken, roast sweet potatoes, fresh asparagus soup, a chopped vegetable salad, raspberry jello salad, and for dessert, lemon pudding cakes,(recipe here.)

I dressed our table with a runner I made following this tutorial from the Etsy Blog.  The flowers I made with tissue paper and floral wire.  They are very easy to make and really pretty!  I followed a tutorial on the Lillyella blog here  as well as this tutorial on the Rust and Sunshine blog.  Both approaches make for lovely flowers.  (The yellow napkins are from Crate and Barrel.)

Every year on Easter I take Little Bug’s picture.  Last year I posted his picture on my blog along with a picture of him on Easter year one.  So this year I thought I would do the same thing.  It’s fun to see how much he has grown.
