Easter Morning Tea Party – Inspiration Board

One of my favorite things about motherhood is celebrating holidays together!
Over the years I’ve always teamed up with the Easter Bunny to throw a little tea party on Easter Morning
and Celebrate Jesus with some sweet treats before going to Church!

but it could also be perfect inspiration for a birthday or brunch theme!
This was one of the first party sites I discovered and I’m still in love with everything on the site.
