Kid’s love to feel special so for Amy’s, of Amy’s Kitchen Table, Easter brunch, she wanted to set up a special waffle bar for the them to dress up their own delicious waffles. I need to take a second right here and tell you that these waffles smelled AMAZING (and of course tasted that way too once I finally stole one). The little bit of cinnamon that Amy added to the batter rocked my world. Again, we kept the table really simple (and totally forgot to put the maple syrup on the table…) And instead of blood orange mimosas for the kids, we kept out the champagne and replaced it with a little Sprite. The kid’s were crazy for them. Super easy.
I wanted to keep the yarn theme going on the kid’s table so we added a yarn egg. And I knew I wanted to do some kind of straw embellishment but didn’t want the yarn to shed in to the drinks. I took small lengths of yarn, taped them to a piece of paper and then scanned it to make my own yarn-like paper and created the flags from that.
Amy wanted to have activities for the kids. What is an Easter party without an egg hunt I ask you?! Also, I found a free “font” on Da Font with Easter graphics and created this quick coloring book for the kids.
Amy put together this really cute butterfly craft. She printed and cut out different butterflies, let the kids paint them with watercolors. And when they were dry, she attached them to pieces of empty toilet paper roll which acts as a cuff for their arms. The kids had a blast running around the yard with their butterflies. Yes, that last picture is of my new 5 year old BOY. He has made it clear that he will not be cutting his “rock star” hair for “100 years.” And it doesn’t look this girly normally. Only whilst frolicking.
Be sure to check out Amy’s post on the kid’s food and activities!
Tomorrow I will share some out-takes from this shoot.
