This year we broke away from the norm by having two simultaneous hunts - a traditional egg hunt for the younger kids and a more challenging scavenger hunt for the older ones. The scavenger hunt was a blast with the kids really getting into the clues and the search for the Easter loot. It's definitely something I'll be doing again in future years.
When I host parties, I love to put out a party spread - lots of goodies and bite-sized morsels of delectable indulgences. For this spread I made homemade smores, mini cheesecakes topped with strawberry and blueberry sauce, a strawberry yogurt bundt cake (the recipe can be found here, with a changeup of berries) with freshly whipped cream, warm cream scones with maple and blackberry (made with my homemade blackberry jam) butters, and mini spring cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I also made a frittata with red peppers, mushrooms, sausage and fontina and mini hashbrown cups to accompany it, because you can't just have all sweets. Or can you?
