This year we enjoyed Easter at my sister-in-law's gorgeous home at the Jersey Shore. It was a bit of a change for me since our family gatherings and holidays are normally celebrated in my home. But I decided to give myself a break this year and to be honest, I am glad I did. It was a great weekend filled with fun, great conversation and most importantly, a great time with the family.
My sister-in-law Lilly set a beautiful and elegant table and prepared some delicious and amazing meals the entire weekend. What a fun time we had. She is such a gracious and wonderful host. I have learned a lot about entertaining from her.
Here I share a few pictures of their lovely home and of the wonderful weekend we shared.
A lovely and casual elegant table set by my sister-in-law Lilly with beautiful open work linen placemats and napkins purchased in of St. Thomas a few years ago.
Natural light fills the room in this bright and sunny spring day.
The table runner is Venetian Lace. How exquisite.
The dinnerware and flatware are from Villeroy and Boch. The stemware is Mikasa. Centerpiece was made by my sister-in-law.
Amazing view of the bay behind the house.
Anyone for dessert???
Views from the house are just stunning. The home was decorated by their daughter Adrianne who is an Interior Designer in New York.
We even had these beautiful visitors stop by to say hello. What a treat.
