Are you ready for Easter? Our Easter Bunny still has some preparing to do and could use some suggestions for basket fillings. Our preschool was on Spring Break last week. Please tell me why a 4 year old needs a Spring Break. Does she need to go to Cancun? Is playing in the sandbox three mornings a week too stressful? I think not, and it’s rather inconvenient for an Easter Bunny who does not have a minute alone to shop for basket fillings. Oh, and said Bunny would also really love a shower alone. Just saying. In all honesty, I am glad the teachers get that break. They have a tough and under appreciated job.

What are your favorite Easter basket fillers? I like to stay away from candy in favor of things like markers and stickers.

Last year we were lucky enough to be invited to an Annual Peeps Regatta  hosted by my friend, The Southern Belle in Santa Barbara. This is my absolute favorite Easter party idea. It’s relaxed, fun, and elegant all at the same time. Perfection.


My friend, Ronda, brought this adorable pineapple bunny fruit platter.


Mimosas, tulips, and Peeps: Easter must-haves.

Homemade banana and zucchini bread in the sunshine by the pool.  Heaven.


Delicious spread of Easter foods.

I loved this salad with green beans and potatoes.

A strata is perfect for brunch and can be prepared ahead of time.

On to the  regatta!

Racers, start your Peeps…



It was a close race, but there could only be one winner. I’ll let you know if one sweet 4 year old can hold the title of Peeps Regatta winner.


Festive party favors. Pastel M&Ms in cute boxes.

Do you celebrate Easter? What are your traditions?

If you have a pool, go get some Peeps and hold your own regatta.

Happy Easter!
