Easter breakfast was at our place for the first time this year. Nick had fun hiding the eggs for the Easter egg hunt & I loved the opportunity to decorate the table. For the table centrepiece I saved empty egg shells and then spray painted the shells silver (the easiest way to paint egg shells that I could find, see photo below) then placed them delicately inside an egg carton with a little saltbush. Simple but a little stylish, I think.

On the menu - croissants with ham, cheese and tomato, bacon, scrambled eggs and fresh baby spinach, plus champagne, orange juice and of course chocolate eggs. My friend made the adorable chick cupcakes above.

After bunch the kids continued to play nicely (an Easter miracle) and us adults were able to carry on a conversation with little interruption (Easter miracle number two). In the early afternoon I ended up heading off for a nap, something that little miss Lulu decided she did not need. Agh. Let's hope this isn't a continuing trend! Nick followed up the chocolate Sunday with an 87km mountain bike race on Monday, while I cleaned my townhouse ready to rent it out again and Lulu helped her Grandma garden. How was your Easter weekend?
