Kristin Cavallari and her boys are awaiting the Easter Bunny’s arrival in style — and plenty of sunshine.

The family of four, including husband Jay Cutler and their sons Jaxon Wyatt, 10 months, and Camden Jack, 2½, are busy indulging in a warm-weather vacation. But despite the time away from home, the fashion designer says her sons will be greeted by plenty of sweet treats on Sunday.

“We’ll actually be traveling home on Easter this year from a beach vacation,” Cavallari, 28, tells Yahoo! Makers. “I have the boys’s Easter baskets all ready to go for when we return home that day.”

Although Cavallari — who showed off her svelte shape in a bikini shot posted to Instagram on Thursday — and her boys are having a blast at the beach, the mom of two made sure they didn’t miss out on celebrating the spring holiday.

“I like getting everything ready the week before so that I’m not stressed the morning of,” Cavallari explains.

In fact, she jokes, planning ahead works in the couple’s favor. “We decorate a couple weeks before and dye Easter eggs to get the boys excited,” she shares. “We talk about the Easter Bunny and use that to keep the kids on their best behavior!”

Now that Camden is old enough to be involved in the fun, Cavallari and her firstborn went to town decorating the house with Easter-themed crafts.

“I bought egg and bunny cut-outs that we decorated. We put bows, baskets and tails on the bunnies and drew different patterns on the eggs,” she says. “We also painted eggs then drew on them with chalk which was different and a lot of fun. It was definitely messy for Camden though. He was covered in paint by the time it was done!”

And while the end result can be a bit mismatched, Cavallari and Cutler are all about making the memories as a family.

“I keep the decorations simple and don’t get too worked up over it,” she explains. “I like the kids to do most of the decorations so the house never looks incredible, but it’s fun for the boys and keeps it fun.”
