Easter, and the living is snowy....

Oh whatever - have decided to start offering igloo overnighters to make a quick buck...

We did Easter this morning since that was the only time we could get DD, DS and DS'GF all in one place.

We take what we can get!



There was a veritable feast.

Homemade hot cross buns (less cross-y but am sure I am still in good with the Big Man or Woman):


This was a Nigella Lawson recipe so I got all swanky whilst doing it
You will note no raisins.  Raisins are an abomination to mine eyes!
 

Quiche Lorraine:



We made two kinds of muffins, bacon, a massive fruit bowl and drank Mimosas.

The piece de resistance was the white cake with buttercream (or as I liked to call it Easter Chick) frosting and edible flowers:



I'm calling it - this is Pinterest worthy!


Barry getting ready to dig in...

 
Bunnies galore:





And pink flowers...



And the odd chick running around



I dressed for Dani in my new Theory dress and the navy satin jacket I scored from J Crew on sale from $310 CDN to $50 CDN on one of those crazy sales.  I love its swingy-ness and plan to wear it a lot - especially with skinny jeans!





The hardware is rose gold.  I like it and am wearing it with my Fossil rose gold watch Barry bought me for Christmas.




The shoes are Stuart Weitzman slingos.  I almost wore my new wedges, but it was snowing...

A lovely cobalt colour.  Here the jacket and shoes are paired with the printed skirt I bought at
& Other Stories in NYC

I am quite sure I don't need to eat now till Mother's Day....

Wake me up when Spring actually comes, will you???

Happy Easter!  Blowing kisses your way!

xoxo wendy

  3. Very sophisticated outfit, and I love the edible flowers on the cake. Absolutely Pinterest worthy. I am the worst- haven't decorated at all. Have a Happy Easter. (It auto-corrected to Happy Eater. perhaps that was a message: ) I rather prefer the snow to the melting slush that highlights everything that needs to be addressed in the spring, like branches and peeling paint. Maybe the snow cover is there to let you relax this weekend!

    1. Hi! We had 4 inches of snow last night - very beautiful but so discouraging! I need to get Barry excited about painting the kitchen cupboards!

  4. Everything inside looks springy! Hope the snow melts quickly and you are gardening up a storm soon.

    1. We had 4 more inches last night? Surely this is it? The weatherman said we are unlikely to see grass till May!

  5. Buns, quiche, mimosas, what a feast. And that cake is the Pinterest crowning glory. Well done you WMM on the flocked up frippery, our DBP will be suitably proud. Is that an NYC Theory dress? Score on jacket, and blue so suits your eyes and hair. Just think, all the major cooking and clearing up done, you can kick back and relax Sunday with the Barry...

    1. PS crushing on the Peter Potterish bunny plates -- you do have decor for every season and reason under heaven, bravo.

  8. Happy Easter to you and your family!! The cake is most definitely Pinterest (and Instagram!!) worthy, so pretty with the flowers scattered on top. Great outfit too. Spring has finally come to NYC, hopefully it won't be too much longer before all that snow melts!

  9. loving the tabletop, loving your dress&jacket - you must be bringing Spring all by yourself!
    We actually had some sunshine and a few temperate moments today, although it was raining all day on & off yesterday. At the moment we're having very noisy winds.
    Well, Happy Easter, Wendy & Barry & Family, Wendy, when you get a minute (unlikely, I know), send me Monty's password, I must have blinked and missed it. welllfedfred@verizon.net.
    Thanks!
    ps I could live on real buttercream. A cupcake store not far from me sells - obviously - cupcakes, but also "shots" of their lovely buttercreams. Sigh.

    1. Oh my god - love buttercream as well? Just sent M a note as my password not working either! Have a happy Easter and take care of that bird (and the bunnies!)

    2. Count me in for shots of buttercream! Dear lord, I could not live there! MLane is a fruit addict-- so perfect/annoying.

  12. Happy Easter!! What a pretty cake and I love your bunny plates!! What a great jacket. I don't think I ever saw that one. It's pretty with your dress and will be darling with skinny jeans too.

    1. Thanks Kim, I bought it mainly for skinny pants and a more tailored silhouette, but could not resist pairing it with the chambray yesterday!

  14. What a party! And"children" to enjoy the bunnies etc ( I txted my eldest, did she want to come down for Easter brunch, but she said she's in NYC. Oh well. Told her to have some buttercream for her dear ole mum).

    Splendid spring outfit and +1 for effort in the snow. We did not get this batch here, but still in the 30's during the day so not getting much melting either. Retreating to the basement seedling area.

  15. Lovely all around. Might put a spring in my step since the snow certainly isn't. Make me spruce myself up in a spring like fashion for our family Easter dinner today.

  16. Happy Easter, Wendy! I can't believe the weather the Maritimes are getting! Perhaps it is time to move here. It is warm and sunny right now. :)

  17. Oh Wendy, I could so dive into your layer cake. If only allowed one food on earth, it would absolutely be a frosted cake for me! I'm sure it was scrumptious.
