About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Easter Egg Hunt


   I have always wanted to host a Pumpkin Party, but when I saw this pennant banner on the Country Living website I decided that my new dream is to host an Easter Egg Hunt...

   Look at the darling paper plates!  Yes, they are paper!  I am in love with the flower and polka dot combination...

   Now, if I could just figure out how to make this sign.   I think the lettering makes it extra special...  See the egg hiding in the tree?  

   Tristan, do you have these little cuties on your farm?:)

   I remember getting one of these every Easter.:)  They were bigger, though, and solid!  Does everyone start by eating the ears first?

LOL..well, we will have soon..we plan on having a whole coup! We haven't had much luck with them in the past! They are cute!

That maybe looks like chalkboard paint on that sign.

Oh, yea..those huge solid choc. rabbits...mmmm!

Yep, with chocolate Easter bunnies the ears ALWAYS go first!!

I LOVE everything about that picture. The plates, the eggs, the sign. Everything is just so BEAUTIFUL! When you host your Easter party be sure to take lots of pictures. Sure wish I lived closer.....♥

Let me say, I loved that issue of CL!! I personally prefer hollow chocolate bunnies. I ear their ears, put them in the freezer and then drink milk out of them!! Yes, your sister is a little nuts!!

I love hosting Easter Egg hunts! One year we marked each person's egg with their first initial (large sticker) because each child liked different candy. We let them know the bunny did it and everyone found the same number of eggs with the candy they liked inside. Very fun!

I love the hollow chocolate Easter bunnies too~Ears are always the first to go!

The sign is adorable and yes, Tristan is right it's a small chalkboard-You could paint the trim in pastels and put a bow on it...Use chalk markers to write the letters. So cute.

I love the table setting so much!
I so wish I could come to your party, I'm VERY GOOD at finding eggs-My older brother used to follow me around because I always found the most eggs! He used to try to steal them from me ~ He really was a little brat-Actually he still is! LOL!

Elise- I love the idea of pouring milk in the chocolate bunny! I LOVE chocolate milk and that's one fancy way of making it.:) Lori

The party setting is adorable!! Love the banner and the little chalkboard sign!! I used to get baby chicks like that in colors from a little variety store downtown when I was little. I remember one year I accidently ran over one with my tricycle...it was traggic. There's still a baby chick in a shoe box buried in our old backyard. Sad. Oh, and with the chocolate bunnies, I always eat the ears or take a nibble off the hiney first...it's just too funny not to.

Hi Lori
I hope you do your Easter Egg Hunt/Party and take lots of pictures so we can all see how it went. I love the pretty plates and the banner.
The chocolate bunnies are so cute. Do you have the Lindt bunnies in the US? They are gorgeous. The ears always go first and the rest immediately after!

Hi found you at Noelle's site, I'm her mom! Where are those floral plates at?? I seen the pictures too and loved the look! I bet you could get a kids chalk board and do it up and then write with paint the words, very cute! Lori

Jim buys the candy for the kids' basket and I do the rest. I need to go see what he bought :0}
