Wishing you a very Happy Easter….
Our holiday has lasted all weekend long, beginning at the Saturday Corona del Mar Farmers market, where Mr. Bunny greeted my shoppers and I gave a pink carton of eggs to Don the Egg Man with late-sprouted egg shells in pink, beige and white~
Instead of sprouted egg shells on the tables, I opted for flowers, these little beauties fit the painted shells perfectly~
They cost me $1.99 for 6 seedlings and I placed the pink shells in crystal cordials purchased oh so long ago at the NY Flea rather than buying more egg cups; these would be cute with moss or raffia around the base too~
We started the day at sunrise, just after 6am, at the Top of the World Park in Laguna Beach; it was perfect~
The rest of the day was spent walking, talking, eating….I didn’t set a fancy table but set out a jumble of flatware and stacks of plates along with the buffet and a few inverted Christmas ornaments I love in the Egg Shape~
A simple batch of scones were all-eaten, as was the See’s Candy~
Especially when paired a trio of juices (blood orange, clementine and strawberry-orange) & Champagne mimosas, with home-made Meyers lemon curd, organic blueberry jam and blackberry preserve, all made yesterday from fruits from the market~
There was French toast and sausage, pancakes and bacon, Honey Baked ham and of course tons of desserts including home-made carrot cake topped with a bunny~
and Meyers Lemon Meringue tarts with shortbread crust~
Not to mention lots of leftovers including a trio of carrot cake muffins for my niece for her lunches this week….
Sorry to be remiss on posting….so much going on I can’t begin to tell you… hoping everyone had a wonderful Happy Easter together~~
