    ostara 2019 spring equinox rituals
    March 20, 2019 marks the Spring Equinox, also known as Ostara. Ostara is a Wiccan or neopagan celebration that honors earth's change from dark to light. Babies are born, flowers start to bloom and days get longer. There are many rituals to honor this time and as always we think it's so important to say thank you to our earth and what it provides for us. Rituals are a great way to do that.

  • Easter Is Coming! A Quick Guide From Food to Fashion

    0 comments / Posted by kristin spear

    the easter guide on food and fashionEvery year the bunny comes knockin' and we remember to go to church, dress nice, hunt for eggs, have brunch and so on. While the day is about Jesus we are helping you with the rest. Behold our Easter guide from food to fashion.

    THE WOMAN

    WOMEN'S EASTER FASHION LOOK

    We start with the dress and we like classic with a twist. The lower neckline and bows on the sleeves keep this from being too stuff. Floral pumps are different and remind everyone that Spring is here! And there aren't enough occasions that call for a hat so go for it and have some fun. We don't include a hat with a bow or ribbon so the dress can make the statemet on its own. For outfit details, click here

    THE MAN

    easter men's fashion

    A lot of men are uncomfortable getting edgy with fashion. Again our mantra is classic with a twist so ditch the pleats for flat front pants. The mint-y green color gives a Spring vibe and keeps away from ubiquitous khaki chinos. Keep the belt and shoes light and ALWAYS MATCH. If your guy has a sense of humor hand him a floral or polka dot handkerchief for the pocket and let him keep his mala beads on. For details, click here

    THE KIDS

    easter style for boys and girls

    The kids just want to run and play so we don't like stuff when it comes to kids- any time. We do think there's still a way to elevate their look that's appropriate for the occasion while keeping them comfy. On this adorable girl's linen outfit, the bloomers on the bottom allow her to still run with the kids when she wants all the eggs. The bloomers and top come in this natural ivory so have fun with shoes or a headband. A tie for your little guy takes it up a notch and the embroidered chalice honors the occasion. Roll up the sleeves when it comes to fun and keep the feet happy with durable Vans. Why spend money on fancy leather shoes that don't get much wear. For details, click here. 

    THE APPETIZER

    Deviled eggs are always on our menu so when we find a new way we are thrilled to say the least! Martha Stewart is always on point when it comes to holiday. Give this egg-cellent recipe a try and treat your guests on Easter. We like it with sparkling rose by the way...Deviled Eggs With Apples

    THE COCKTAIL

    Cocktail with an egg? Yes if it's a chocolate malted egg! Vodka, Baileys and Cadbury eggs we do! Serve this instead of dessert... Mini Egg Martini 

    THE DECOR

    Easter table decor

    This table setting was actually featured in a Thanksgiving piece written by Rebbeca Parsons on Cre8tive Compass. It's so fabulous and with the yellow, blue and sunflowers we think it fantastic for Easter. Exchange sunflowers for tulips? The mismatched plates and sunny tablecloth are the perfect boho chic vibe for our celebration. More on her story, click here...

    DIY EGGS
