I can't bring myself to use pastels on Easter. I bet we would use more soft pinks if I had girls, but with a house full of boys, bright pops of spring colors seem more appropriate. Here's just one of the palettes I am playing with for our first annual Easter dinner. It will be our first real Easter to host, since we are finally back in Seattle with our family. This selection is a bit more casual, perfect for a brunch. Our dinner is early, so it's still a contender.
