Studio 5 : Easter

A Few Quick Tips for Easter Baskets:

1.  Choose a Color:  For each child (or whomever you are giving to) choose one or two colors per basket.  This gives each basket a different look and sets each child apart.  Also it makes what could be a "cheap" looking basket look classy.
2.  Always use a sturdy filler in the bottom of the basket before adding your gifts.  Tissue paper, wrapping paper or wood excelsior make good fillers.  Many people overlook this and then their basket doesn't look as full as it could.
3.  After you are done assembling the basket, add a "place setting" underneath your basket.  This can be a beach towel, a piece of cute fabric, an actual table placemat (we made our own placemat with an oval piece of card stock and then layered scrapbook paper on it) a balloon base, or even an article of clothing.  It should match the overall theme... This will finish off each basket with a WOW effect!
4.  If you wrap your basket in cellophane, always tie something to the outside.  Something creative & fun adds a whole lot to the basket itself.  Some ideas include:  a pinwheel, princess wand, a little boy tie or a hair bow for a girl, bracelet, a real carrot with a note that says the Easter bunny was here or money in a plastic egg.

3 Fun Party Decoration Ideas:

1.  Stake polka dot (or solid) balloons down in the grass at different levels in or around the party area.  You can do this by tying a slip knot in the string of the balloon and using a bobby pin to push the string down in the ground.  These are fun for the kids to play with and make such a fun atmosphere!
2.  Make a quick & easy centerpiece for under $5 using the same polka dot balloons.  Put a little bit of water in the balloon and then blow up the balloon with your mouth as big as you want it.  Tie a bow to the top of the balloon for a little extra wow.  Place 3-5 balloons in a basket on the table, or line them up in the middle of the table with grass and robin eggs sprinkled around.  SO EASY!
3.  Stuffed Balloon Eggs:  so fun to add to your already planned Easter egg hunt!  Get 5" balloons and stuff with a small toy, money or even just candy.  We think the money and toys are most fun!  Blow up the balloon first, then deflate and stuff, then blow it up again.  Add these balloons around the yard along with the other plastic eggs.  Kids will love to gather and pop them to see what's inside.  It also doubles as a cute and creative decoration--adding more color to your party and a little bit of uniqueness!

And last...
Leave those kiddies a pillow treat from the Easter Bunny... some Bunny Droppings to let them know that the Easter Bunny did come!  Also cute to add to the breakfast or picnic table.  Print out our free downloadable tag and attach to a bag of marshmallows, jelly beans, etc.  You could also leave a trail of the "bunny droppings"  from their bed to their basket for Easter morning.

Hopefully these tips help you to have a fun and creative Easter!
