We had a very different Easter this year. Our family gatherings usually include at least 14 adults and 8 kids. It makes for quite a bustling party each month. This time, many of our family members couldn’t make it, for one reason or another. With only 12 people for brunch, it was quiet at times, which NEVER happens at a family party. There were also times of sadness, over the sudden death of a friend. During brunch my daughter told us, “This isn’t much of a party.” This really reminded me that it doesn’t matter how beautiful the table is. No one cares about the beautiful bouquet of flowers or how clean my house is. Our parties are all about the feelings that home and family bring. We enjoy being together and celebrating. Not all families are as close as we are, and I need to stop and be thankful for this. Easter was different this year and it reminded me to appreciate my wonderful family.
I took a few pictures before the party. My kids enjoyed helping with a few colorful creations.
The fruit skewers have been a recent favorite. My kids will eat anything if it comes on a toothpick. We bought big skewers at the grocery store and a tray of precut fruit from Costco. They love to help make the rainbow fruit skewers.
I hope you had a great Easter!
