Our Easter Open House

   This year we thought it would be fun to host an Easter open house on the day before Easter.  It was a fun way to get together with some family and friends and finally put our new buffet to the test.  It turns out it is big... but not quite big enough for one of our parties!  We maxed out the old buffet, the new buffet and the kitchen counters.  If anybody went home less than super full, they didn't try hard enough.  I thought it would be fun to go ahead and post some pictures so you could see the fun.  I will go back and add links as I get all of the recipes posted!  I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter.
     I promise we had people too.  I seem to have a bad habit of putting the camera down when the people arrive, so I never get good pictures of the actual party.  At least I took some before pictures this time.  Some of my favorite parties have no photos.  Maybe that is just as well, the memories might be better!

  1. And that's not even all of it. There was more. Everyone enjoyed the party. Your hubby might be a little deflated. He might not have won all the yard games. The kids looked like they had a great time hunting eggs. Was the last one found? ( check under the table in g'ma's bra). 😃

    1. They were still paying bags at 11 when I went to bed! K.C. and Sam were on a roll. As far as I know, there is still 1 egg missing! Maybe it was just waiting for Easter proper to make itself known. I'm hoping Grandma's bra went home with her... if it's under the table I'm worried ;-)

  2. What a great idea to have an Easter open house the day before, looks like it was a wonderful party with lots of yummy treats and your buffet is beautiful! Thanks for sharing at What'd You Do This Weekend? :)

    1. We had a lot of fun! The buffet is new, so we were excited to give it a try. It was hard to find one as big as we wanted, and now I am thinking we should have tried to find one a bit bigger!! I hope you had a great Easter as well.

  3. Sounds like you had a nice Easter. Thank you for coming to the Inspire Me Monday Linky party on Monday. I'm Janice, one of your hostesses.
