Alex said this about the party- “My third little girl celebrated her first birthday in April and being around Easter we thought what better than to have a gorgeous pastel themed Easter party! It was a garden party with lots of prettiness and lots of fun!
A special appearance by the Easter Bunny himself was a highlight for the kids, as was the real white fluffy bunny which spent the afternoon hoping around.
A beautiful 2 tier Cake was the show stopper of the dessert table. Made by the talented Sweet Tiers it featured a beautiful Bunny figurine topper. All of the guests were amazed it was fondant and many thought it was a real porcelain figurine. Other treats included buttercream ruffled cupcakes in pastel shades of lemon, pink, mint and blue. And the most amazing and detailed Cookies by the super amazing cookie artist Kookie Krumbs by Kirstie. They were like tiny portraits, delicately detailed and definitely too good beautiful to eat!
The children’s setting featured rattan chairs which suited the garden feel to a tea.
Each guest received a keepsake hankie designed by Ham&Pea Paperie which featured the Winnie the Pooh quote ‘You are braver then you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think’.”

Annina said this about planning the party- “This cookie decorating party and mini dessert table was part of our Easter celebration- but the theme was really more “Spring”, since there were very few Easter-specific decorations. I kept the colors as soft pastels, and with the morning light filtering in to my breakfast nook, it created a very beautiful and ethereal set-up.
I decorated with ruffled fabric, glassware that I already owned, and a “Sweet Tweet” Bird Printable Kit, which I designed.
The cookie decorating table included a reversible cake plate for the sugar cookies and icing, cake pops in flower pots, and nest cupcakes for guests to snack on. Each setting had a placemat, and a cup of sprinkles. Squeeze bottles full of icing were placed upside down in the cake stand so that the frosting would be ready when we began decorating!
I hung a rosette wreath in the center of the picture window and hung banners around the bay window.
The mini dessert table held a birdcage, which is intended for candles, but also worked as a unique cupcake stand. There was also a plate full of strawberry cupcakes, and pink lemonade.”

Here’s what Monica said about planning the party- “Easter Egg Hunts are not a Spanish tradition, but since we are a half American family, (my husband is from North Carolina) we introduced this holiday to our small town in Huesca. Ever since my oldest son Kevin (11 years old now) was small we have been celebrating this lovely holiday with our friends. This year I was inspired from the little bunnies I found in a store (Deco Palace) in Zaragoza, and I thought it would be nice to make the bunny house the focal point of the table. Using my kid’s doll house I built some planters for it and filled them with flowers that are available in our garden now, the muscaris, and from there everything came easy. It was really fun to style it, and even more fun to have our friends over again!!”
