Put on Your Easter Best

Yesterday, my friend hosted Easter Brunch at her lovely apartment in Brooklyn.  We were all instructed to come dressed in our Easter best, so it was the perfect opportunity to pull out a pretty dress and sport a large floppy hat! :)  My friend, the hostess, did a wonderful job of creating a springy atmosphere in her apartment and prepared many delicious treats for us, including that adorable egg-shaped cake.  She even hid Easter eggs all around her apartment, so we had a mini Easter egg hunt.  I was this close to winning, but somebody beat me by three eggs!  Between the delicious mimosas and the great company, it was a lovely day all around.  I haven’t really celebrated Easter since I left home for college four years ago, so it was really wonderful to get together and spend the afternoon with my good friends here in NYC :)

Tell me: Did you celebrate Easter or Passover this past weekend?

    What a fun looking party! I didn’t celebrate either this weekend, it was too expensive to go home to my parents so I had a nice springy weekend to myself. That cake looks awesome!
