peonies + a perfect table...



Easter is just around the corner and luckily I have the day off work tomorrow, so tonight is definitely feeling like a Friday! Looking forward to relaxing, reading a little, and enjoying some delicious food and pastel-coloured Easter treats. Hoping to find a pretty Spring bouquet as well to decorate the table. Aren't the peonies above just gorgeous? I love how full they always look. So wonderfully scented too!

Sounds like a super weekend you have planned. I always try to do as little as possible over the easter weekend, its a great time to recharge, to sit back and reflect (and eat a little chocolate).
Hope you have fun.

They are very beautiful!

I might have to stop by my favorite florist after this post :) The only flowers we have in the house right now are daffodils, in large urns framing the kitchen entryway -- we need more.

Also, I have to say, my Mum was so so surprised by the beautiful card you sent for her Birthday. It sits in our studio on the desk so we can enjoy it -- you are so thoughtful and kind, Daniella.

Happy Happy Easter to you -- I have something in the mail for you, too, but cannot wait to see what you have sent.

xoxo,
Sarah

Thanks for your sweet comments everyone! Hope it's a wonderful weekend for you...

Natalie Would - I haven't read her cookbook yet, but I had actually just spotted it at the bookstore the other day, lol, I should check it out! Thanks :)

Sarah - Oh yay! I'm so happy she liked it! I didn't know if the address would be the same, but figured it would make it to her somehow! lol... have a great Easter Sarah!
