Not only is this herbal cocktail absolutely delicious, it's also the perfect drink to pull together if you're on a tight timeline! I was short on time so I bought high quality organic lemonade and my favorite lavender syrup to speed up the process. Of course go for fresh squeezed if you can!

Add ice to a glass. Add one shot of vodka (or 2! ;) Add lavender syrup to taste and torn up mint leaves. Stir very well with a swizzle stick! Top off with your preferred ratio of juice and sparking lemon Perrier. Garnish with culinary lavender, a lemon wedge and a mint leaf!
Welcome back to #GramecryCourt! This Garden Bruschetta recipe is a fan favorite! Not only does it add a pop of color to your holiday tablescape, it's an easy recipe to whip up on a whim! And why stop with the garnish when you can top it off with prosciutto and other nearby charcuterie offerings? My friends definitely had the right idea!  Full recipe from Epicurious below! 
Ingredients:
1 1/3 cups fresh shelled peas (from about 1 pounds pods) or frozen peas, thawed
1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more
1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature, divided
1 medium shallot, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup)
*We decided to add some fresh herbs to the mix for taste! Have fun with it!
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
--
Preparation:
If using fresh peas, cook in a medium saucepan of boiling salted water until tender, about 3 minutes (if using frozen peas, do not cook). Drain, transfer to a bowl of ice water, and let sit until cold, about 3 minutes. Drain and pat dry.
Melt 1 Tbsp. butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a food processor. Add peas, pepper, lemon zest, 1 tsp. salt, and remaining 1/2 cup butter; pulse until just combined. Divide evenly on your favorite sliced hearty bread. For our Easter brunch, we chose rustic olive bread!

Crafty doesn’t have to be tacky!
These DIY, No Sew “Designer Bunnies” make for effortless #Easter decor! They are made out of my favorite fancy fabric scraps leftover from our factory where we make our custom furniture! We used them in our Easter tablescape and for other fun moments around the apartment. Making them was such a fun activity, too! Instructions below!
Supplies:
Fabric scraps, hot glue gun and inexpensive fiber fill from a local craft store
--
Steps:
1. Print a simple bunny pattern off of the internet
2. Trace the pattern onto the fabric and cut two pieces (front and a back) When cutting, leave an extra 1/4" along the sides for easy gluing!
3. Carefully glue the edges together using a hot glue gun. Be sure to leave the bottom open so you can stuff the bunny!
4. Once the glue has dried, carefully stuff with the fiber fill
5. Finish off the bunny with a pretty ribbon!
As a self proclaimed buyer vs DIY-er, it was so easy even for me, I promise you can do it! (Oscar thought I was making him a bunch of toys!)
A festive cocktail at brunch is a must!
This fragrant Lavender Mint Lemonade is perfect for Spring gatherings! I love it because it's just as tasty (and pretty!) boozy or as a “mocktail.” I made it sans liquor for my sweet friends who are expecting and added vodka for those who aren’t! Nobody felt left out and everyone was ready to party! Recipe here!
When entertaining at home, a bountiful charcuterie plate and my bacon-topped deviled eggs are my finger food go-to’s but for this #Easter Brunch, I focused on adding new “seasonal” dishes like…
...this “garden bruschetta." It was a hit! It's a refreshing and savory Spring app that is a simple puree of peas, sautéed shallots, lemon zest, fresh herbs, and butter, of course! My friends were were topping it off themselves with prosciutto and other nearby charcuterie plate offerings! We are definitely cut from the same cloth on so many levels :) Click here for the full recipe!

I hope you get to try my recipes and maybe even the DIY! I would love to know how it turns out :) Happy Easter, friends!
