Easter at Martha's...

When Martha called and invited us, we didn't know if she did it because we are her number one fans o her number one customers, no explanation needed here....
We accepted right away!

Martha's touches were, of course, spread throughout the house. This beautiful arrangement with handmade paper birds made by her was our first surprise...
Pure eye candy, just the perfect prelude to a special gathering...

While asking about our trip and families, Martha walked us to the backyard, where the table was already waiting for us...
Fresh, colorful, girly...
Oh, so inviting!!


We would like to think that the pastel colors, the floral pillows, the mix of painted and wood furniture (all our faves!) were picked in our honor, but we need to keep it real...Martha has impeccable taste and those choices were perfect for an Easter Brunch!

A closer look to the table to remind everyone of why we LOVE Martha:
Her attention to details:
look at the napkins folded in shape of bunnies!!

Her creativity:
She can transform everyday objects in pure sweetness...


and her simplicity, although you wouldn't dare to think of Martha as "simple"!

Later in the afternoon, over tea and coffee...

she shared with us some of her secrets and had so much encouragement to give us!!
(She said that the aqua nests and chocolates were picked specially for Clara)

Unfortunately, it was time to leave Martha's place. But she had one more surprise for us....
She let us take a beautiful glass jar each, filled with colorful eggs...

and a basket full of goodies for all our readers!!
She is so generous...the perfect hostess!

She waved us Good Bye while making us promise that we would get together again...

Happy Easter, Martha!
Thank you for everything...

And just like that, we turned around and without even wanting it: we woke up!!
