Brielle and I celebrated Earth Day by making our very first Fairy Garden! She helped me pick out all the flowers and the fairy accessories and it was so much fun making something together! I actually don’t know which part she enjoyed more, throwing the dirt around (we both were covered in it by the time we were done) or nestling the tiny houses into the flowers. Either way, I think it’s safe to say we’re completely obsessed and we can’t wait to create an entire fairy village! We got all the fairy houses and accessories at Michaels.
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.
I wanted to create a whimsical centerpiece for Spring and one that Brielle could help out with. I grabbed one of the wooden boxes Scott had made for me, lined it with plastic wrap and had Brielle start shoveling dirt in. She was a HUGE fan of that 😉 I purchased the carrots online here and stuck them in the dirt!
