Usually my posts are very wordy. But as I am sure you will find what I am about to say shocking, I may have over done the details of my son’s upcoming 5th birthday and it is consuming my life. As I type, my eyes are trying to close, I’ve just finished cutting out 189 pieces of “space money” and I won’t even get to my Friday night ritual of a glass of wine and US Weekly. Too tired to declare who wore it best. I’m going to let the pictures speak for themselves (for the most part). I had been wanting to use yarn in a party setting for a while, simply because I hadn’t yet, so when Amy, of Amy’s Kitchen Table, asked me to be a part of this Easter project, I headed out to the local craft store to get some. I found the perfect yarn in this graduated color pattern of purple, green, orange, and terra cotta. While the colors are “spring-y” they aren’t pastel and gross.
One the main buffet table, I used simple terra cotta pots to match the cute two-tone polka dot fabric I found. I also continued the yarn accents in different ways. The succulents (which I stole from Lauren) look right at home on the rough cut wood blocks used to create levels and keep it totally casual and cool.
I mentioned the food in my teaser post but OH. MY. GOSH. Seriously, Amy is amazing. I could go on all day about the blood orange mimosas but that is because I need a drink like crazy right now. wink. The ham, BEST EVER. The breakfast pizza, ridiculously delicious. I would rather eat my own foot than eat a deviled egg but Amy assures me that they are the best ever invented. And I believe her. And while I didn’t get a chance to try the Hummingbird Cake, those gosh dang pecan shortbread cookies with lemon glaze haunt me, in a good way. Don’t forget to check out the recipes on Amy’s Kitchen Table. Tomorrow I will post more details of the eating table. I know that doesn’t sound right at all, but my brain is done.
