After spring cleaning comes spring entertaining! From floral décor to favorite dishes to family traditions, spring is the time when Gwen and Lindsey open their homes to celebrate. See how they’re celebrating the season including Easter and Passover.
Lindsey's Hopping to It...
With traditions, including an annual Easter egg hunt for her kids and their cousins. Lindsey loves to set a beautiful backdrop for entertaining, while creating special memories with her family.
1. GREENERY BOUQUETS | CAMILLE STYLES
Lindsey likes the look of these clever wraps for greenery bouquets. They make a nice gift for family, friends, and neighbors.
2. DIY MARBLE EGGS | HELLO GLOW
This is a creative way to dye eggs using colors from your nail polish drawer. The resulting masterpieces are wonderfully marbled eggs to use as centerpiece staples.
3. EASTER DÉCOR | JENNI KAYNE
Lindsey’s finding inspiration from this Easter party thrown by friend of The Laundress Jenni Kayne. Her use of organic materials, like seasonal vegetables and fruit baskets, creates a lovely springtime layout.
4. EASTER BUNNY FOOTPRINTS | THE LARSON LINGO
The Easter bunny will be making a stop at the Boyd home and leaving some clues along the way, like these footprints.
5. CHICK CANDY HOLDERS | ONE LITTLE PROJECT
Lindsey loves a good craft project with her kids. This simple design makes a cute jellybean holder too.
Gwen's Got the Menu...
Filled with favorite dishes for family and decorations to set a festive tone. Where Easter lands on the calendar determines the spirit of the celebration, since some years Gwen’s Mom’s birthday falls on Easter Sunday. The attendees vary as to who can celebrate the Saturday before Easter, but it's always casual and fun, including her family and traditional dishes, with a twist.
1. EGG COOKER | DASH
Gwen’s excited to try out her new egg cooker and attempt to make deviled eggs as yummy as her Grandma Whiting did.
2. ROSEMARY LAMB CHOPS | EPICURIOUS
Gwen’s family serves ham and lamb to make everyone happy. A simple marinade never disappoints.
3. COCONUT MACAROONS | FOOD52
These macaroons are on Gwen’s must-make list for her in-laws during Passover next week. She has enlisted the help of her four-year-old niece to make them this year.
4. SPRING BLOSSOMS | NEW YORK CITY
It’s the perfect season for effortless decorating using the beautiful tree blossoms showing up around town. Gwen loves to use these throughout her home.
5. BLACK BOTTOM LEMON PIE | FOUR AND TWENTY BLACKBIRDS
This recipe never disappoints while citrus is still in season. Gwen's husband, James, is the pie guy and will be busy in the kitchen creating the perfect confection. She loves it without the crust too—prepared in ramekins with a smudge of coconut oil at the bottom.
