EASTER COCKTAILS AND BRUNCH IN BUNNY'S GARDEN

The Boys and I love Easter and we are planning on getting a lot of fun things done this weekend so we are ready next Sunday for our Easter Egg Hunt. My husband Josh is going to uncover the pool and my older sons Sam and Teddy want to help him and just hang out ride bikes and have some friends over. Our little guy, Oliver (he is four) wants to play with our 3 Bunnies and spend time in his playground in our backyard.


We have a beautiful tent that is really a gazebo that we put each Spring, it is a few steps from our Pergola and the area is surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of flowers for a good 6 months a year. We spend April through October entertaining and just basically "living" outdoors. We set up a lot of different rooms and gardens throughout our property which consists of 5 acres.


We have everything from a childrens pumpkin patch garden to a formal rose garden. Have I mentioned that I am obsessed with gardening and the outdoors. Maybe it is because I am a Virgo the Earth sign, who knows?? My grandmother, Margaret was English and loved to garden and my grandmother, Carmella was Italian and the best baker in the world. I definately feel I got a lot of my creativity from these two women. They were both stylish and interesting and loved being with their family more than anything in the world.

The holidays always bring back these wonderful memories and this time of the year I can still remember the smell of the hyacinths and fresh baked Easter bread and remember being greated at the door with a delicious glass of sangria. We now make our own wonderful memories for our boys. So we'll get the pool open tomorrow and the tent up and the bunnies ready for the great Easter Egg Hunt we have planned next Sunday.

Here is our Easter menu for any of you who want some ideas and if anyone has a great cocktail idea to share please do!! I'm thinking bloody mary's but I also want something sparkly!!!
