Egg Hunt

“Easter is coming, Spring is on its way, Hens getting ready, For eggs to lay. Flowers all growing, Bright and tall, Little lambs born, Fluffy and small. A time for hope, And a time for prayer, New beginnings, And warmer air. The Easter bunny, And chocolate treats, Egg rolling, hunts, And lots of sweets!” -Author unknown

As you can tell, my blogging has lagged behind, but I didn’t want the season to slip away without recounting our favorite spring festivity…

Easter has always ranked amongst one of my favorite holidays. This year we were excited to host our very first egg hunt. Oh, the timeless tradition! What could be more darling than children donning their finest spring outfits, frolicking in the green grass to collect petite pastel treasures?

We extended the invitation to the festivities with simple DIY watercolor egg themed invitations.

Guests were encouraged to bring their baskets, and when all the guests had arrived, the Easter egg hunt began, with eggs scattered all over the front lawn for the children to collect.

To the delight of many of the children, (and to the dismay of others), the Easter bunny made an appearance!

Sweet treats in pastel colors were served as refreshment.

And bunny sack hop races were available for the older children.

Each child left with little resurrection themed surcee- cross sugar cookie, Jesus coloring book and hand-made crayon roll.  A fun time was had by all and we look forward to hosting again next year!

It’s A…

When we found out Harlowe’s gender, we did not live close by family so this time around we were excited to have family over to announce the sex of our sweet baby #2. I staged pink and blue pastel cotton candies for guests to “take their pick” guessing the gender. We made a large cardboard box full of gender colored balloons and released them to announce that our baby BOY, Thomas “Tennyson” Donehue is due September 23.

And the monogramming begins…

Push Christmas

We were happy to host the annual Push Christmas party at our home this year. A casual lowcountry boil- we celebrated the front yard, under the lights with local oysters and Frothy beers!12631562_10153895818241672_4848833013568773017_n
