Easter Decorations






Just wanted to share my Easter decorations today. I love the graphics on the vintage cottage cheese cups, and it makes me wish we could still buy festive cottage cheese with cute containers to be re-used. I very recently found the tiny bunny tin and Gurley chic candles at the same thrift shop, the candles were 10¢ each and the tin 25¢. Such a steal! The candles still have their original tags on the bottom and were originally 15¢ each. Another thing I found this year was the bunny shaped candy box in the far left next to the roses. It was at an antique shop so I figured it would probably cost more then I wanted to spend. Turns out it was $1 and the whole booth was 20% off.

DIY- Vintage Easter Egg Dye Garland or Treat Boxes


I don’t have a lot of Easter decorations (when you compare it to my Christmas and Halloween goodies) so I decided I wanted to make a garland this year using scans from old boxes of egg dye. You could turn these little boxes into a garland like me, or use them as treat boxes instead.
I printed mine on card stock, and then punched small holes on either side so I could thread them onto string. You could also use holes to thread a handle for boxes. Just make a knot on the inside of the box to hold it in place.
You can download the boxes for printing here:Easter Boxes

You can string yours up with some beads, or mini foam easter eggs would be adorable too!

Fun Easter Candy

I love unusual or interesting candy, and filling up a couple of Easter baskets is the perfect excuse to buy it. I thought I’d share a few items I have either tried, or am thinking about buying this year…


Milka Spoon Eggs (hazelnut)– I’ve never had the hazelnut variety, but one year I did find these at our local grocery store, and they are really delicious! I’ve looked for them again each Easter and no luck! I may need to order a few instead. You unwrap a little chocolate egg and crack off the top, and eat with a tiny spoon that comes with it. They were a big hit in our house!
Cadbury Egg ‘n’ Spoon – these are similar and I love Cadbury chocolate, but have not tried these yet.

Fondant Nests – look really cute, and I think would look great on top off a cake thats covered in green dyed coconut to look like grass.
Fondant Eggs– look a bit like deviled eggs and would be cute displayed on a deviled egg platter.

Lerro Chocolate Filled Egg– Lerro is a Pennsylvania candy company that started in 1916. I love the vintage look of their boxes and purchased a peanut butter filled egg locally this year for one of the Easter baskets I am filling. These eggs come in 4oz, 8oz, and 1lb size!! That is a big egg!

Zitner’s Butter Krak Eggs– Zitners is another PA based company that was started in 1920. They have recently changed up the look of their boxes, but my favorite will be the vintage looking ones. The butter krak eggs are so good, and we’ve purchased them many times!
