Hop to It!

Easter is quickly stampeding our way, wiggling its cute little nose in a threatening manner.
Well, those of us whose egg houses are still boxed up are threatened
by how close it is.
Over the weekend, I need to get my Spring on in a big bad ugly way.
If you're still a couple of hops behind, allow me to get your fuzzy haunches in gear
with my file of ideas gathered to inspire.
Adapt and enjoy.
None of the following images are mine. There are plenty of those to follow.
Use a  vase-within-a-vaseto nestle your Peeps and skewers to elevate them for 
an easy arrangement packed with whimsy and color.
Good luck preventing the family from eating it.
 Everyone's favorite cake pops with Bunny Corn ears?
 Use food coloring on the whites after boiling and scooping the yolks to produce 
an unexpected twist on the classic guilty pleasure, deviled eggs.
 Jelly bean vase filler? I'll have to keep this out of my mother's reach.
How cute is this?
Pink jelly beans in a jar, and you have a cute little gift for teachers, baby sitters,
or the perfect container for the cup holder of your mini van.
Enjoy the sugar rush.
 These are the best deviled eggs ever made!
Relive Ozzy's early stage shows and bite the heads off a chicken.
 Vase-within-a-vase corralled with a flouncy scrap of tulle.
I think even I would eat this one.
Are Peeps fat free?
 If your kids are too old for the traditional basket,
this is a softly hued way to show off pretty candies
before the sugar-fueled carnage ensues.
Dibs on that white chocolate rabbit's ears, ya'll.
 For those of you who are slightly twisted.
Tuck this in a basket, and you can obliterate that pesky childhood innocence 
in short order.
My sick little Minions would have been in hysterics.

Plastic eggs are inexpensive, versatile, and don't attract insects
like a lot of the vase filler that's been used.
In Florida, that's a real consideration.
 I'd bet money we have an old rusted bike around here somewhere...
Coco baskets and trailing blooms are nearly as welcoming as the carrots.
 Cover a styrofoam ball with plastic food wrap and pin the Peeps to it.
Start a pool as to whether or not the centerpiece makes it through brunch.
Put me down for $5 and 11:30.
 Four layers of chocolate cake and the business end of a Dollar Tree bunny
would help those of us who cut Wilton Cake Decorating class
 Just in case you run out of diapers?
Baby's first temporary tattoo.
In case you run out of other things to paint.
 Are those chocolate?
Of course not.
They're made of liver and brussel sprouts.
Now move along, they're mine.
 This is a fantastic idea...simple, inexpensive, and a great way to get the children involved
in the spirit of the holiday.
We aren't Christian, but the Minions know the traditions of other religions,
and things like this really bring them to life.
 I suppose terra cotta warriors are in order to guard the Dove eggs and Godiva bunnies.
I love this.
No basket to store.
 Jell-o Jigglers with a sweetened cream cheese yolk ~ I know I still have these molds around here somewhere...
For the decorating challenged (like me!), these are festooned with candies.
Simple. Colorful. Fool proof.
Hit the Dollar Tree and go nuts.
Graham cracker Peep houses!
I'm thinking place card holders.
 Blown or hard boiled eggs would make a very subtle arrangement here, and you could dye them to match your bouquet.
 Speaking of swag...
Another vase-within-a-vase creation, but the square shape and citrus
shades give it a stand out quality.
I had to clip it.
Christ Almighty, if you want to attempt this, you're on your own at this point.

NONE of these are my photos, ideas, or work.
Unlike a normal person, I save project pictures without the URL to a file if I think they are self-explanatory.
If any of this is your work, tell me, and as always, I'll delightedly give you credit.
After all, genius should be signed.
And if you have Passover ideas you'd like to share,
definitely let me know!

So, what have YOU got going this weekend?

So many great ideas...the last one would 'not' work with my dogs! xo

Musings from Kim K. said...

I'm post surgery and it might be the painkillers, but this post ROCKS! I'm especially intrigued with the terra cotta warriors. Great ideas on this post. I won't be making minion Easter eggs this year, but they were definitely a favorite last year.

Have a great weekend.
