Party Planning ~ Buffet Style Easter Menu 2011
I woke up last night at 3am thinking about deviled eggs. I couldn't fall back asleep. I've pretty much been awake since.
Then... I spent the day, "staging and planning" for Saturday's party.
I like to position plates, stations, etc. I need to feel prepared and ready to go! Tomorrow will be spent prepping...prepping ...and prepping!
Anyway...here's the menu...recipes in BOLD can be found on my blog. I apologize for not connecting the links...just short on time... but if you're interested you can simply use the search function up above.
Hope everyone is well!! XOXO
