So Easter is only a week and a half away and I’m thinking to myself that I should probably start figuring out what I am going to order for the boys Easter baskets. I do have 2 pieces of luggage that Easter bunny is going to leave for them. Then mom and dad will announce to them that we are headed to North Carolina for spring break.
As for basket fillers, I have nothing! I will most likely just leave them a little bit of candy and do an egg hunt. But I will share some of the items that I’ve purchased in the past and were a hit with my boys!
I am also sharing our table settings from last year. I never got this blog post up, but I just love how everything turned out. Lots of color and we were able to host dinner outside, which was a bonus! You can find links for our outdoor furniture here.
To start off, I am sharing these outdoor hanging plants. Since we were able to eat dinner outside, I wanted to brighten the space. I found these artificial Bougainvillea hanging planters and I faked out the entire family! They all asked if it was a pain taking my planters in every night, since New Jersey nights are still to cold for flowers to survive. Well the jokes on them! I actually ended up leaving these outside all winter (on accident) and they still look amazing today. I am saving so much money not replacing these flowers every year AND I don’t have to worry about then dying when we go on vacation in the middle of summer because they didn’t get enough water!
Now if you already have planters, which I did. You can totally reuse them and just purchase these instead! You’ll save a little bit of money. When they arrive you’ll need to fluff them out. That is what I did to achieve the look below.
Since we were able to dine outdoors, I used these melamine plates and layered them over these gorgeous woven placemats! I purchased tulips for the centerpieces and gave them to the guests before they left. My mother in law also brought Easter balloons to, which we also used in the center of the table.
We did an outdoor egg hunt for the kids, which is something they look forward to every year! Before dinner we pulled out this jumbo jenga set, where the little and big kids had fun building towers and trying to shoot it down with their new nerf guns! (without the wine bottles on top of course)
The boys love helping me stuff the eggs for our annual Easter egg hunt with the cousins. I try to stay away from too much candy so I’ll often hit the dollar spot at Target for egg fillers. I’ve also purchased prefilled eggs with legos, which are a hit every year!
