Our kids and grands will be arriving in six days, and as usual, I'm beginning to feel like the white rabbit in Alice in Wonderland...running around like crazy, trying to get things ready. We've spent the last week or so, getting the yard planted and transplanted, and now, I've finally started doing a little decorating in the house.
Today, I worked on the kids' table for Easter dinner. I used a piece of fabric to make a tablecloth, opting for bright colors instead of pastels...since the house will be running over with lots of boys.
I wanted something for the "centerpiece" that was kid friendly, so, I added one little bunny...
...and another, with a little pot of carrots behind him.
Dollar Tree clay flower pots hold favors.
Carrot shaped eggs hold a little toy...instead of candy...there'll be plenty of that from the Easter Bunny...I know...because the EB told me so. :)
I just noticed the table cloth looks so wrinkled...honestly, I did iron it.
I'll show you the little bit of decorating I've done so far. I may end up changing a couple of things, but this is how it looks for now.
Living room side table holds a ceramic egg...
...vintage-looking eggs in a hurricane...
... and a cross for the true meaning of Easter.
Hare E. Rabbit is in the living room for now. He's finally getting in Easter mode, and let me put a brown satin ribbon on him. Hopefully, I'll get a little more done to make a vignette with him.
Now, I need your help...please tell me...
...this is the first time the grands have been here for Easter.
Do you think 60 plastic eggs will be enough for an Easter egg hunt for two little boys, or should I buy more? I have no idea.
We also want to have a family egg hunt with nine people.
Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated. HELP!
