In two Saturdays, after the Butter and Eggs parade, a bunch of friends and family will gather at my aunt's house for a seafood barbecue. She has an amazing backyard, and my dad will man the grill while everyone lounges in Adirondack chairs near the fire pit. The colors of butter and eggs (pale yellow and white) inspire the event's decor. Yellow throws will be draped on the back of the chairs in case anyone gets cold. Oysters are served on porcelain oyster plates, while the sardines look scrumptious on a square platter. Pitchers of Rosé sangria will sit on the tables; guests can help themselves to a glass. The decorations will be minimal; I'll simply fill bowls with eggs, arrange yellow tulips in vases, and light lots of candles.
