Here comes Peter Cotton tail....

I love all holidays, particularly because it gives me an excuse to get crafty, decorate, and bake with a theme in mind. Easter is only a few days away, so I thought I would share with you my festive little decorations, and plans for Easter Sunday. This is my set up for the corner of my kitchen countertop. I used cake stands, and an easter gift box to add some elevation changes to my arrangement. And of course, I wanted to show off my new gold and white tea set. I also found some antique egg cups to use as placecard holders.
I cut pieces of easter themed fabric into egg shapes, and wrote names using a fine-point sharpie marker; and then placed them in the antique egg cups. Voila! Instant placecards.

For my table centerpiece, I used two discontinued fabric swatches and placed them under a large mirror to make them appear to be one long table runner. I tied a long fabric swatch of a colorful pattern around the square vase. The flowers I got from Publix for $7.99. Awesome deal! And then I laid out my egg plate and bowl that I got as a gift from my Aunt Brenda last year for Easter.

Every year since I was a little girl, my mom and I would make a Bunny Cake for Easter. Although it looks difficult it is surprisingly, very simple to do! You make 2 cakes in a round cake pan (Funfetti Cake in my case :)) Then you cut 2 ovals out of the edges of one cake to make the ears, leaving you with the center piece in the shape of a bow-tie. Then you can decoate your bunny with an assortment of candies, chocolates, sprinkles, and coconut.

Since I made my first Easter arrangement about 2 weeks ago, and the flowers are already dying, this will be my centerpiece for Easter Sunday. Peeps are super cute, but not my favorite, so using them in a flower arrangement seems like the best idea to me.

I hope everyone has a Hoppy Easter!
