Eat, eat, eat. That was all I did on Easter. While early breakfast and a scrumptious Italian Easter dinner with the in-laws were great, I thought I’d chat about the champagne brunch we went to at the Langham Pasadena, since it is a beautiful vintage hotel. Built in 1907, it is a grand Italianate hotel, though the interiors are more modern. If you’re looking into a glimpse of Pasadena history, you won’t find much of it in the interior, though it is lovely. The exterior, however, gives you a glimpse into the old hotels of days gone by.
Their brunch was scrumptious and I ate far too much. My Little Man and Hubby Dearest joined me in exploring the dessert bar – I personally don’t think five different desserts is too much for one person, especially as they were mostly two-bite versions (I kid, of course, my plate was far too overloaded.)
After brunch we went to the lawn, where they had a children’s petting zoo for the day, and enjoyed the afternoon. What a welcome reprieve from all of the rain we’ve had.
My dress was a sheer ’50s frock with black and white stripes and little roses on it, purchased from Ebay. I had to be careful which color slip I wore, black or white, as I didn’t want to look too much like Beetlejuice (black won.)
Hope you had a glorious Easter and enjoyed your day as well.
