An Easter Brunch

On Easter Sunday my husband and I got together with our favorite (and also new to Texas) friends and had ourselves a potluck Easter brunch.   Since we all just moved here, none of us had family close by to celebrate the holiday with, so we took this opportunity to have our own big Easter celebration together.  The weather was perfect, and so was the food!
Here we are in our Easter finery.  Before Brunch, we all went to Easter mass at a the church nearby in our neighborhood.  Next year I’m sure we will take note, and not arrive only 15 minutes before!   We definitely spent the entire time standing in the back.  Lesson learned.

Now onto the brunch:

Okay…. I went kind of all out setting the table.  Needless to say I had a whole lot of fun playing hostess.  🙂

The tablecloth that I used is from the Target Threshold line.   They always have the cutest stuff! And to make it even better, it was a really great price.  Below is the much pricier Anthro version that looks pretty similar.

Also, those blue metal chairs? On sale for less than $10! Target you are too good to me.   
We used an antique teacart as our bloody mary and mimosa bar.  Usually the teacart just sits out on the patio, housing a few plants and odds and ends.  I’m thinking about repainting it …. just not sure which color yet.


Doesn’t all the food just look divine? Well, it certainly was!   We contributed the ham, potatoes, and salad.  Oh and I found the cheesy potato recipe on pinterest.  I made them with leeks and topped the potatoes off with gruyere cheese.  Highly recommend!   We all had leftovers for days, which I may or may not still be munching on at this very moment.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and that you were able to spend the day with family and friends!  We are so blessed to have met so many great people in Texas and that we were able to share the day with them.
