Hop Hop Breakfast {2013}

We almost ran out of time but I'm so glad I got a second wind last night and decided to set up the table for our annual Easter breakfast!!
I feel like I've been doing a lot of last minute parties lately but maybe that's all right too since it forces me to just use what we already have and love...

After we put the littles to bed, I started digging through our Easter bins to mix things up and came up with this...just a sweet table for my little loves to make an ordinary breakfast...
When I woke up {I'm so not a morning person!!} around 8:20 a.m., Grace was already in the living room with Lance who is a morning person. Hudson had been cuddled up with Lance and I since some time in the middle of the night when he snuck in our bed and he was still there with me. First thing Grace said was, "I'm trying really hard not to look at that sweet table because I want to be surprised." Be still my heart - love that sweet girl!!
I have such a crush on these little vintage toppers that a blog reader found for me on etsy last year after I let a set slip through my fingers - they just don't make cuteness like this anymore!!
I fell in love with these sweet little lamb and bunny plates from World Market when I first spotted them just after Valentine's Day and I'm so glad I decided to get them because they were almost gone when I went back for a second visit!
These little treat boxes too...World Market had adorable easter decor this year!
I filled them up with some of my favorite speckled eggs...
Stumbled upon these on sale at Kohl's and put them back a couple of times before I decided to get them - so glad I did!  I love that they are brighter than the traditional Easter palette of pastels...
These trusty Frappuccino vintage milk bottles  have sure come in handy over the years...milk just tastes better from a cold glass, doesn't it??!
One thing I'm always on the hunt for is sweet unused vintage cards...
I love to write little love notes for the littles...
I think one day they will look back on these and enjoy knowing what was going on when they were 2, 3, 4 and so on.
Before I went to bed, I made cupcakes, both big...
...and small.
Stuffed tiny treat bags with the littles favorite cookies, "Florecitas" that my uncle sends them from Puerto Rico...
And hung little baskets with hidden treats among the faux eggs...
I set out a few of my favorite vintage decorations...
and called it D.O.N.E.!
In the morning, I whipped up a quick batch of bunny pancakes, bacon, cinammon toast, and even cut out a few little cheese shapes...meant to add bananas and fresh strawberries but when you plan last minute...
But the littles loved their special Easter treat!

The "fat carrots" didn't pass the littles' test...they called me out on the "strawberries" right away! {Note to self: don't forget to buy proper carrot cookie cutters!}
But they loved it all nonetheless!
Not too sure about the strawberry milk...
...but head over heels for the sugary sweet treats!
This little pumpkin, who is definitely not a sweet tooth, surprised me by eating a couple of the minis!
I'm no cake decorator but they were awfully cute in their teeny tiny splendor!
She gulped down her "princess milk" in record time...
And then asked for grape juice!  What a combination??!?
Eggs + Littles = F.U.N.!
The rain could NOT hamper their joy!
All in all, a very fun morning!
We're ready to celebrate the sweetest of days...Easter Sunday!  From our family to yours...Happy Easter!

Happy, HAPPY EASTER to you, Lance, Grace and Hudson!
That is a sweet, beautiful breakfast for the littles. I love and admire your creativity, my dear daughter. May Our Risen Lord shower you all with blessings.
All my love, Mom/Noonie

Hayden said...

Happy Easter to your family! Your 'last minute' set up looks amazing and super cute!!

Karen said...

With her hair done like that she is seriously sporting an extra year or two. She is such a pretty girl, and a handsome fellow. What a beautiful breakfast to wake up to. Happy Easter

Kelli said...

Such a sweet table setting. I love all of your vintage touches.
I love vintage cards as well but have been having a hard time finding any lately :( I need to start now looking for some for the 4th of July.

Super sweet, as always. I had intended to do a Bunny Hop Breakfast this weekend, but we've had a crazy week of birthdays, celebrations, and holiday prep. Sooooo ... I am secretly planning one for next Saturday morning. A little extra spring fun for April. Why not?

Jay Jay M said...

Beautiful as always.

You have an amazing talent for making things special. Love your eye for details as always! So wish I could get to a World Market! You've inspired me to keep the Easter decorations out for a little longer and keep celebrating! Easter seemed so early this year it was too hard to fit everything in. How sweet to that you are still loving your toppers. I love how you use all your vintage pretties mixed with new finds. My favorite part of your post was your mention of Grace trying not to look- PRECIOUS!

Angel said...

Oh how completely fun that looks! :)

Jessica said...

Thanks girls!! The littles' excitement makes it all worthwhile :)

And yes, Karen, she is looking mighty grown-up these days!! *sniff, sniff*

Ariane McEvoy said...

I absolutely LOVE your blog and have added a button to mine! I am at I love how you have the thumbnails featuring the photos from your blogs on the sides. How did you do that? Your ideas are fantastic and I love your creativity. You certainly put so much effort into creating special memories for your littles just as I do for my little one. Thank you for inspiring me to create my own blog and follow my passion. Great job!

Lust said...

Love your stuff. Wanted to know where you wanted know where you got the flannel plate under the lamb plate

Jessica said...
