Party planner

I think this could be a good next career. Still glowing from my St. Patrick's Day meal, it doesn't even seem right that Easter is just around the corner. I need some time to bask in the corned beef glory, and yet . . .

I found the most darling Easter baskets at World Market. They're tiny. Less than fist-sized. I got Jelly Bellys, malted eggs, and rice candy. Each basket will hold one or two of each. I'm using them as placeholders for the brunch we're having on Easter. It started out as an egg-dying day, with three of Tim's classmates, but I tend to get carried away with things like this. Now I'm making applesauce cake, fruit salad, and scones, and debating whether or not raspberry or lemon curd is the best to serve with the scones. Double Devon cream is a must, right?

Brunch is probably my favorite meal of the day. And it's even better when I can make Easter egg shaped invitations.

You are one creative girl. I only wish I had that sort of creativity when it comes to hosting.

You need BOTH lemon curd and raspberry preserves. And you also need to invite ME for Easter.

I will bring homemade Raspberry jam if you provide everything else.
