easter in a box (for grown-ups) is my fave

March 28, 2012

Picnik collage
Easter in a box for the grown-up folk is focused on goodies that would inspire some brunching, with a chocolate bunny thrown in there for refueling purposes. Hiding eggs is hard work.

sources: preserved boxwood wreath, wooden forks, floral tray from IKEA, polka dot plates from Target (no longer available, similar ones found here), egg crate, cardboard treat box (similar ones found here), juicer from Anthropologie (no longer available), whisk, Weck jar

Come back tomorrow for the kid’s version!

    I love Easter colors 🙂 I think it’s a great way to start spring! And an abundance of chocolate eggs doesn’t hurt 🙂

    i guess i’ve been inspired by your “in a box” gifts, because the other day i was thinking of doing a mother’s day brunch in a box. the only thing i could come up with was a new table cloth. help! — and maybe do a blog post about it? 🙂

    I want to be the recipient of one of these boxes! Guess I’ll have to settle for making some of my own to give away, which is probably even more fun…

    Love that floral tray! I was surprised it’s Ikea…seems to ‘old fashioned.’

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get
    the hang of it!
