Easter Brunch

This weekend we are heading down to San Diego to spend Easter with Joel's brother Andrew and his wife Corie and their son Sulley. My in-laws are flying into San Diego (today actually), and then we will drive them up to LA to spend some time with us after Easter brunch.

The plan is to hang out at home Saturday, and then Sunday, attend mass, have an easter egg hunt, and dive into brunch.

Napkin folded into rabbit ears - so cute for an Easter table setting!:

I'm in charge of mimosas (duh), and my all time favorite brunch item - Cinnamon Blueberry French Toast. 

So good! Make this Cinnamon Baked French Toast the night before, pop in the oven in the AM, and delicious breakfast is ready!:  

This dish is perfect to take down to San Diego with us, because I'll pre-rip the bread, and have a container for the dry ingredients and a container for the wet ingredients and basically be done. I'll just assemble it when we get there and keep it overnight until its ready to be baked for brunch!  

Easter Eggs In A Brownie Nest:

This is the first year in four years that I'm not hosting Easter, and I'm actually excited to attend as a guest! 

The other thing I'm excited about is breaking out some spring outfits. Even though not 100% of my wardrobe is fitting the way I want, I'm ready for some skirts, lighter blouses, and open toed shoes. 

Park Ave. Skirt Blue:

Does your family dress up for holidays? Ours always has, and I'm going to continue the trend with my little family even though I feel like most people tend to be more casual for holidays than we used to.


  1. My family is super casual but I love dressing up! My husband and I are trying to set a dressier precedent but it's hard. You want family to feel comfortable, but at the same time have that reverence.

  2. Adorable napkin idea right off the bat! I'm sure you'll do a great job.

  3. That blueberry french toast sounds delicious! I like to dress up just a bit for the holidays (and Easter is always my excuse to whip out all my spring and summer brights) but still remain comfortable!

  4. I love that recipe idea and those napkins are too cute! I am so excited about this spring weather and Easter! We are casual, but I am hoping we can get one nice Easter picture!
