This year Easter seemed to sneak up on us! Usually I spend weeks preparing decorations but this year I pulled it all together the week before. We did our standard patio door sticker decorations and hung some Easter signs outside. I absolutely loved our Easter tree last year but didn't want to do the same thing again so I switched it up a little. I just bought decorations from Walmart and the dollar store and glued them on to some branches that Jason cut for me. I placed them in the foam for artificial flower arrangements to hold it firm. It was quick and simple and I loved how it turned out again!
We decorated our eggs again. People keep asking me about our egg decorating. To be honest the boys do 99% of it. I prepare the colours and I let them do the rest. I supervise and make sure they take turns and don't go silly around the dye but this is the third year it has worked out great. I don't blow out the egg yolks and I don't hard boil the eggs. We just take them right out of the carton and die them and use them only as decorations. They have lasted 1-2 weeks out in our house without smelling at all. I don't want to jinx myself but we haven't even brocken any while decorating. This year we added some animal themed stickers from a egg decorating package to them.
We hosted Easter breakfast at our house this year and it turned out great! We prepared a special "Easter breakfast" ( a casserole type thing with the eggs, onions, peppers, bacon hash browns, cheese etc) all together. I also made Maple Cinnamon roles. We had Easter cookies, carrot muffins and of course devilled eggs to serve as well. I don't use pinterest often but when I do I always find neat things that I try right away. This year was the chick shaped devilled eggs. The turned out great and tasted delicious!
I love setting the table for a special gathering. This year I found a youtube video on how to make napkins look like bunnies. I have no idea who has time to make youtube video's of this stuff but to the person who made that one.... I am thankful!
Hmm after writing this post I'm a little excited to host another gathering......off I go to research some more neat ideas!!
