Modern Farmhouse Spring Mantel

This year started off kind of slow, but now I feel like things are moving at warp speed.  Yesterday was the first day of spring and Easter is just around the corner.  My brain is having a hard time catching up to everything moving so quickly, but fortunately I teamed up with Oriental Trading a few weeks ago to create a beautiful Modern Farmhouse Spring Mantel that's perfect for Easter too.

I decorated a dozen eggs with sweet little spring vinyl in about 10 minutes … [Read more...]

Sugar Decorated Easter Eggs

As a child I loved getting the delicate panoramic sugar Easter eggs that my mother lovingly took the time to handcraft in my Easter basket.  I've always wanted to carry on that tradition for my kids, but I my previous attempts to make them were unsuccessful, to say the least.  So, when I saw this idea for Sugar Decorated Easter Eggs on the Imperial Sugar Kid's Kitchen site I thought it would be  a great replacement for those fancy sugar eggs, and a lot more fun for the kids too! My kids … [Read more...]

Easter Brunch and Egg Hunt

Last year we had our first Easter Egg Hunt and I couldn't wait to have one this year.  But, with busy schedules and lots of other activities going on we ended up not having our big Easter egg hunt with friends.  Instead I planned an Easter Brunch for our family and we had a small get together with lots of fun hanging out together. I loved the Easter party package from Dimpleprints I used last year and decided to use it again this year and reused many of the same elements. I used the play set … [Read more...]
