In my family we’re serious students of Harry Potter so it was only natural to have a Harry Potter Dinner party! Now, word of warning…this post is extremely picture heavy so grab a stein of butterbeer. You’ll be here a while. The first thing my guests came into was the potion station.
I just hosted my very first Mother’s Day luncheon! I chose a Tea Party theme because when else can you go hog wild with all things pink and dainty?! Plus, you can only have so many pretend tea parties with plastic, albeit darling, teacups and asking Elmo if he’d like a refill for the 20th time…”MOM! You’re not asking him the right way!!” Anyways, you can imagine my excitement at the thought of using actual glassware and enjoying adult conversation with 3 of my favorite ladies in the whole world!
I hosted Easter Dinner this year for my family. It’s the first time in years that all my siblings have been together for Easter! It’s amazing how you can go so long without seeing them and yet just pick up right where you left off. Good natured teasing included! My entire color palette inspiration came from a plate set my mom just gave me. It’s this bright and happy pattern with blue, yellow and sage green all anchored by a cream background. I really had the majority of things already from my house but all spread out through my house. Bringing them together was tied nicely by the bright yellow flowers I bought to later plant in the flowerbeds out front!
My husband and I are usually at odds when it comes to dessert. I always want chocolate, inserted into my vein if I could, and he hates the taste of it. While he prefers custards and pies I have a terrible time with that kind of texture. We firmly agree on this Lemon Cake though! It’s so moist and not too sweet or tart. It’s perfect and having it be the easiest recipe in the world is an added bonus. This is what I’ll be making to finish off my Easter Dinner I’m hosting.
