Easter Craft | Easy Felt Bunny

I like bunnies. Who doesn’t? I featured a bunny sewing project before on the ‘boards and am doing it again. A simple felt purple buddy this time to match my daring bold purple table setting.

Springtime Cupcakes

Robin, my 2.5-year old,  is head-over-heels in love with cupcakes these days. For her, the second best thing to eating a cupcake is to watch a video of herself eating a cupcake. So lately, it has been my go-to choice for a dessert if I need to make one. I just can’t resist how excited she gets over them.

That said, I needed a dessert for a family dinner party this past weekend and, with both Easter and Spring in mind,  I loved the idea of impressing everyone with something a little more exciting than my usual “swirl” icing (pretty, but always my go-to), or worse, my slathered-on-with-a-knife-and-covered-with-sprinkles technique. There are TONS of awesome and impressive ideas for decorating cupcakes out there. But as cute as the bunnies, eggs and chicks are, I was short on time (and talent for that matter) so I needed something I could do fairly quickly, without having to watch any new icing technique tutorials.

Grass Runner Easter Table Setting | Easter Decor

At Easter, the garden is where it’s at. It’s where bunnies drop eggs and chicks roam free. Bring the garden inside for this festive table setting. This Easter table setting takes minutes to assemble (I opted to outsource to my 2-year old) and will delight all! Just keep your dog off the table.

While Christmas, in my eyes, is always a fine balance between classy and multi-colored tackiness, the traditional Easter colors of white, yellow and grass green can’t go wrong. To add some punch, you could definitely add one more color to this setting. Imagine a tangerine orange or poppy red (very 2013), a hot pink or traditional purple! Up to you. I kept it clean for this one. The key to a nice setting is to stick to your color scheme. Look around in your cupboards and basement and use baskets and bowls that fit the theme in color and texture.
