Easter (a few of our favorite things)


With Easter just a little over a week away, we thought we’d share a few of our favorite things to make and see and do and just enjoy this special time of year.


Brunch: A favorite thing for sure. I like the casual elegance of brunch (make it a buffet and it’s even easier). Martha Stewart’s make-ahead menu includes some Easter brunch classics and some interesting twists.


Kites: April is National Kite Month. And in Bermuda they have a lovely tradition of flying kites on the beaches on Good Friday (I was there once and have never forgotten it). You could find a park or a field or an open meadow and fly a kite. If you are rusty, here’s some quick tips on how to fly a kite.


Fancy Chocolates: Enough said. Town & Country Magazine has a very thorough list of 25 luxury confections for Easter baskets or gifts.


Beatrix Potter: Her charming characters have come to symbolize this season for us. In this video, you can take a look at her home, Hilltop Farmin the spring, and the flora and fauna that inspired her art, and was her way of life (a real time visit is definitely on my bucket list).

030096D2-C668-4042-808F-9876A61AF3E6Carrot Cake: Here are three recipes for carrot cake, a simple carrot loaf cake, a showstopper, and a gluten-free cake, from Bon Appetite. There’s also a fun foodcast with the chefs discussing their carrot cakes—3 ways.

Happy Friday!

  1. I love your favorite Easter things! I must now find my great grandmother’s deviled egg plates, and where is the darling ceramic Easter basket my 4-year-old son made years ago, complete with tiny clay eggs? Good thing there is still time to find these treasures. Happy Friday and Happy Easter!


    1. Thank you Susy! Glad you were inspired and if I know you, you will find your heirlooms and create something very special!


  2. I enjoyed your favorite things for Easter post. Our family has an Easter brunch and we each bring a dish. A fun day.

    Enjoy your week
