Last Minute Easter Dessert Ideas

EASTER 2014

Our family arrived last night, and we are so excited to be spending the weekend with them and celebrating Easter here in Dallas. We’re hosting a casual dinner at our house tonight (confession, we’re making the guacamole and mixing up the margaritas, however dinner will be picked up from our favorite Mexican restaurant!), and so I’ve been searching for festive dessert recipes. I came across the cutest bunny cake on Pinterest yesterday, and while I adore coconut, the men in the family do not, and so I’m leaning more towards chocolate so as to please all palates. I’m planning on baking little chocolate cupcakes (with these festive liners) with my son today as a fun Easter activity. I think they will be adorable, and delicious, and my little bunny will have a ball decorating them! In case you need any last-minute dessert inspiration, how cute would thesethese or these be? Check out my Pinterest board too for more baking and entertaining ideas. Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!

We are on the hunt for a new dinning room table, and let me tell you there are a lot of options! Glass, wood, round, rectangular, the list goes on and on. We are thinking a large farmhouse style with some crisp white chairs could be beautiful, but of course we have to consult our designer, aka my mom! The dinning room is where so many memories are made, from special birthday celebrations to festive holidays, and so we want to take our time choosing the perfect set. Here are few dinning rooms I’ve been swooning over and I can’t wait to create a special space like this for us. Hint – one of these pictures is from my mom’s house :). Enjoy!

There is something about this time of year that has me yearning to bake! Maybe it’s the cooler weather, or the beautifully changing leaves, or even the gorgeous selection of apples at the market. We’ve also been spending more time at home since Baby Boy #2 arrived, and baking is a fun activity that I can do with my toddler – he loves to cook! And so, here are a few of the tasty fall treats I plan on baking for my family. Also, if you don’t have a ton of time but still want to whip up some seasonal goodies, you can always opt for a yummy Williams-Sonoma mix. Enjoy!
