Simple DIY Bunny Baskets for Easter

In DIY, Mommyhood

It’s that time of year again, Easter basket time!  For a while, to be honest, I was a little against Easter baskets.  It felt almost like Valentine’s day to me.  Easter is a time of rejoicing and celebrating our risen savior, not bunnies and baskets and eggs filled with sugar.  But, eventually, the excitement got to me and I figured it was all in fun, we definitely teach our kids about the meaning of Easter (well, right now, the 5 year old), and I decided I was being an Easter scrooge.  Today I’m getting in the spirit with some cute and easy DIY bunny baskets.

Cookie Decorating and Egg Hunt Party

In Mommyhood

*This post was sponsored by Party City and the majority of the products that you see were supplied for use in planning this party. I love celebrating holidays.  Not necessarily in huge ways but I do enjoy heart shaped items for Valentine’s day, green colored things for St. Patrick’s day, pumpkins, and fireworks…you get the idea.  That’s why I started my cookie tradition with Gav.  I was able to take those little pieces that I love and turn them into a tradition.  There are a few holidays, however, that I enjoy more than others.  Christmas is pretty obvious, but I also really enjoy the Easter season.

Last Minute Budget Baskets

I’m not super big into going all out for Easter gift giving.  I want my boys to enjoy a special treat, yes, but I also want them to know the true meaning behind the holiday.  So I try to find as many deals as I can and here’s what I came up with this year! For Ro… Now this is the wee one’s first Easter and he’s still very young so, instead of not doing anything at all, I went super simple and cutesie. It’s a veggie and bunny basket!  Some veggie and fruit squeeze pouches and a stuffed bunny from the Dollar Tree make for an easy yet adorable presentation. 4 Veggie/Fruit pouches – $5 Mini Plush Bunny – $1 White Crate (Hobby Lobby) – $1.80 ($2.99 @ 40% off) For Gav… Big brother definitely got a little more since he’s older, of course, and he understands, to the degree that a 4 year old can, what this holiday is about.  It also helps that he goes to a Christian preschool. For his basket, I wanted something that he could use throughout the year, not just Easter.  Party City has these great little buckets and he loves putting his cars…

Easter Basket on a Budget

In Uncategorized

This will be the first year that we’re giving Mr. G an Easter basket that from us.  We haven’t in the past because he was about 3 months old for his first one and the second and third ones were given to him my grandparents.  Now, we didn’t know that they would be giving him one, but I felt that he had no real idea what Easter really was and, to me, it’s not really a gift giving holiday.  So I’m not very big on the giant gift baskets, or special toys for Easter, and don’t get me started on Easter grass.  If you are, that’s wonderful!  But for us, I like to keep the focus on the true meaning of Easter and I also like to work with a smaller budget. So today I’m sharing with you the Easter basket that I’ve put together for Mr. G that involves minimal candy, no Easter grass, and still has the message of Easter in it. Step #1 – Go to the Dollar Store! Not only can you find a great basket for next to nothing, you would not believe the great little things you can find there!  I mean at this…

My Easter Nails: Ombre Mani

In Uncategorized

I’ve been wanting to try an ombre mani for awhile but never wanted to buy five different shades of the same color.  So I waited until I had somewhat of the same color family and started experimenting. Here’s what I worked with:    It’s not too difficult, you just have to be patient.   Mix your colors by adding alternating layers of polish until you reach your desired color.   Make sure you don’t let it dry until you reach your color.   In between the mixed color nails, do a solid color.  I gave my nails a matte finish to look like dyed Easter egg shells! I love NYC Matte finish top coat!

DIY Easter Centerpiece

In Uncategorized

Well we had a taste of spring the other day and it was quickly whisked away by freezing temperatures this morning.  Ugh…I sense a tornado coming again.  Oh well!  I can keep pretending it’s spring inside!!   This super simple Easter centerpiece cost all of about $2! What you need: Easter grass (the paper kind) Plastic Easter eggs Large vase Just find yourself and large vase or hurricane glass and layer the grass and eggs until the container is full.  When you get to the top, place the eggs up so that they look like they’re sitting in the grass.  Simple and sweet! I have to put mine up high since our cat likes to eat everything.  It now adds it’s Easter flair to our mantel!
