As I look back on these yummy desserts from Easter I smile with the remembrance of how good they were. I also smile remembering my dear sister-in-law Pauletta. The day before Easter I made a Coconut Layer Cake with Pineapple Filling and took it to her and my brother for their Easter dinner. Pauletta was not up and about but she was smiling and seemed happy to have company. Little did I know that it would be the last time I seen her.
And just like that, Easter has come and gone. It felt like I had been making plans forever. I had two inspiration boards and started buying supplies weeks ago. Then all of a sudden it was time to get ‘er done.
This time I scaled back (at least I think so) on the amount of sweet treats I made. Several had been made at least a week ago and frozen. Why then, did I spend two days working on desserts only? It was as if I was moving in slow motion.
Pastels and polka dots was the theme and I stuck with it. Plastic polka dot eggs almost jumped into my basket at the grocery store. The dollar store had an endless supply of polka dot napkins, cupcake liners and favor boxes. Catch My Party graciously offered free Easter printables in a polka dot motif.
To cover the table I used a white cloth overlaid with a yellow printed one. I mixed white and gold serving pieces along with a beautiful pink cake plate that was my mom’s. Most of the desserts are repeats. What’s a Mommy to do when her fam requests their favorites? I have pinned and bookmarked enough sweets to not repeat for the same thing for years. That being said, I have something totally different for Mother’s Day. OK, back to the line up here.
Easter was great even though I took an epic tumble down the basement steps with an arm full of pans and platters. A few bruises here and there and a some broken fingernails, but no worse for the wear. We Party Stylists are tough!
