Can you believe that Easter is almost here? Wow, where has the time gone?!!?? I have a whole bunch of great Easter crafts that I'm planning on making (and sharing), of course this all depends on my munchkin's cooperation and my energy level (baby #2 is due in 6 weeks)!
These Easter decorations and pictures are actually from last year. It was the 1st year that I hosted Easter at my house and since both my family and my hubby's family were attending, I wanted to make some really pretty table decorations.
|Quick & Simple|
As soon as I found this centerpiece I knew that I had to make my own! However, I had to make a few changes. The original version used real flowers, and since I LOVE jelly beans, I wanted to be able to use (aka eat) them after Easter was over, so I didn't want them to get covered in stinky old flowers and water.
So, I bought some silk flowers and LOTS of jelly beans and started my arrangements. I made 3 different ones and they turned out beautifully!
I wanted the table to look like spring, so I made sure the flowers were soft but colorful!
After finishing the centerpieces I also wanted something cute that I could put on each plate.
I went to Michael's and bought a bunch of tiny pots, next I wrapped each one in ribbon (which I secured with my glue gun) and then I put little flower and egg stickers on the seams (to cover up where it was glued). I filled each plastic egg with some candy and Voila!
My table setting turned out really pretty and the best part was that it was also pretty cheap to make!
