We decided that we'll take more time for just us 4 and go do stuff more this year and we stick to the plan. So we went to see Picasso exhibition on Sunday and I guess it left an impression because when we came home I asked my older dd (she's 2,5 years old) what color of decoration would she choose for the Easter and she chose deep red. (one of the wall was painted red and the pics of bullfights were put on it - it was the best part of exhibition so I guess it got stuck in us). So I collected all the stuff to match the color scheme (red-white and dark brown/black) and arranged it like that:


table setting for the breakfast:


eggs shouldn't miss though we didn't color them (kids got sick in the afternoon Sad) so I just put them in glasses with some raffia and feathers:


I made a bunny and eggs out of marzipan:


I put coconut rope between the elements to combine them and to make it more interesting:


Placemat setting:


A closeup of the ladybug detail:


Here the Easter bunny hides the presents in baskets so kids have to find them in the morning. I made the presents match the table decoration (this one was for dad - he got shaker for pancakes Grin):


Younger dd (1year old) found her present:


In the morning the pots were full of spreads (radish, creamcheese with herbs, egg spread with mayonnaise) for freshly baked bread (sorry no pic) and winter tea (with spices, lemons and oranges) in a teapot.

How do you like it?

Lots of great ideas, love the layout, and I LOVE that marzipan bunny! How did you make him?

I modeled him freehand: an egg shape for the head - two flattened sausages for ears, ball for the tail... I just went with the flow - it was done in a hurry and not very precise. I hope we'll do something with the kids this year:)
