natural Easter eggs

Simple and sweet. These farm fresh eggs were decorated with a white paint pen. Yep, that’s it!

water color Easter eggs

These water color Easter eggs are so pretty and easy to do.

butterfly treat bag

Create darling butterfly treat bags using a sandwich bag, clothes pin, googly eyes and pipe cleaners.

bunny ear Easter bags

I also really thought these bunny ear Easter treat bags were super cute.


Bunny ear napkins and jars filled with jelly beans and chocolate bunnies are perfect to decorate the table for Easter brunch.

diy paper flower wreath

Decorating the chair backs with a  paper floral wreath would also be a wonderful touch for an Easter brunch.

Here’s a simple way to make pretty Petits Fours.

Easter lamb cake

This is an Easter lamb cake that my mom made a few years ago for an Easter brunch. The lamb cake mold was my grandmother’s, so it was extra special.

Wishing you and your family a joyous Easter!

Simple Kids’ Craft :: Glitter Butterfly Garland

glitter butterfly garland - kids craft

My kids made some darling glittery butterflies to help us decorate the house for spring and Easter. Butterflies symbolize new life, which is perfect for the season.

The card stock butterflies were pre-cut and purchased at Michael’s. We used cookie sheets to catch all the glitter, but I’ll be honest… this is a messy project! I’d recommend glitter glue pens if you are concerned about getting glitter everywhere.

To create the butterfly garland, we simply used everyday clothes pins to attached the butterflies to streamers.

Happy spring!

Our Easter Brunch Table Setting – Cheery & Bright

Cheery Easter brunch table setting

Cheerful floral and striped table linens featuring yellow, green and pink set the tone of this Easter brunch table setting. It is really a sneak peak of Easter brunch celebration, but wanted to share some of the ideas with you.

Whimsical hand painted bowls mimic nests and are filled with paper “grass” and a dyed Easter egg.

Easter egg letter initial place setting

Guests first initials were added to the eggs and acts as a place card. To achieve the letter, I simply adhered a letter sticker to the egg before dying it. Super easy. Alternating green and pink pom-pom trim is wrapped around all white napkins. Adding a decorative trim is a great way to add texture and color to a table without breaking the bank.

Easter cupcake toppers bunny meri meri

A playful multi-color trim was taped to the bottom edge of a white ceramic cake stand. Again, I love the texture it adds. The carrot cake cupcakes {thank you Trader Joe’s} were topped with sweet Easter images by Meri Meri. 

Colorful Easter brunch table setting

The vintage, floral table runner was picked up at a local estate sale. It has no markings and I don’t know where it was made, but I love the mod print and energy it brings the table. 

Easter brunch daffodil butterfly centerpiece

A Tiffany & Co. crystal bud vase is wrapped in a preppy pink & white striped grosgrain ribbon and filled with sunny daffodils and feathery butterflies.  

Easter baby chicks

I also wanted to include an update on our baby chicks {Fluffy & Chipmunk}. They are now just over three weeks old. They are constantly bugging each other. It is quite amusing to watch. It’s also funny that their temporary home is a clear plastic bin with an “Easter Supplies” label.
