Easter For Two

Easter is one of those holidays that if you live away from your family it's a bit hard to travel for. A long drive home after a full day of events can be exhausting. If you have to sacrifice time with the family it doesn't mean you have to miss out on putting together an intimate Easter for you and your special someone. Whether you are hosting a party of two or four, below is some inspiration to get your table decorated with ease and of course lots of style! 

Fresh flowers brighten every home, I chose to arrange my own centerpiece of  yellow tulips, yellow rannunculus, white hydrangea and aster. I chose a solid white round vase for displaying. 
I chose a classic Bellini for the cocktail of the day. Its super easy & always delicious. 
Easter is always a blast when you have little ones to watch hunting for eggs and opening their baskets. So we wouldn't want to forget treats for them. I created little to go candy bags along with a "Bellini mock-tail" {lemon lime soda & peach puree} for their sipping.  
A cheese platter is always a crowd pleaser for snacking. We adorned ours with fresh figs drizzled in honey, cranberry hazelnut crisps, Maytag blue cheese, french brie and a six month old manchego. 
Other snacks included deviled eggs, one filled with shrimp and the other was the traditional recipe. Quinoa stuffed tomatoes for a healthy appetizer and of course Carrot Cake for dessert. 
A hand painted monogrammed hard boiled egg lets your guests know their spot to sit at the table.
