Ready For Spring And Carrot Cake

So that's the second post this week with the word "cake" in the title. I clearly have a problem.
But have I mentioned we're excited for Easter!?
Oklahoma temps are finally warming back up and I hope they stick. You never know around here... 

On Easter Sunday we have family coming over for a little dessert party. We're not doing the huge traditional Easter dinner on Sunday this year. But I have to say, I'm really excited for an easy, low key get together. 

Everyone is bringing some kind of dessert and I've decided to make this carrot cake recipe. I know carrot cake isn't for everyone, but I LOVE it! And this recipe seems pretty fail-proof!
This recipe looks delicious as well.
So I decided to add a few touches of spring decor to freshen up our abode. Again, I just love spring colors and having fresh flowers around makes me a happy girl. I plan on adding some fresh tulips before the weekend.
 Homemade banner I used for Henry's Easter pics, plastic Easter eggs, 
 and Forsythia from my mom's backyard. So easy!
 My diy chalkboard with my favorite Easter Bible verse, more eggs, and cute little chicks from the Target Dollar Spot.
I just used some cute ribbon and clipped on the pic of Henry's first visit with the Easter Bunny:)
 And I think I'll print off this adorable banner to hang by the dessert table. Love these colors!

Just three more days!

    1. Thanks, Angel!
      Trust me, I am counting down the day until Sunday when I get to eat that cake:) Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  3. I'm crushing on your mint green mirror. It's GORG!

  4. What I adore most about these isn't that they possess a flavor like espresso (they're not really required to contain any espresso enhancing), but rather that they are wealthy in flavors and not excessively sweet, making them a decent breakfast cake, or lunch cake (I don't think about you, yet I can't deal with anything too sweet early in the day.) How to make carrot cake....
