Easter: Quick and Easy Decorating Ideas
Easter is around the corner. This holiday kind of hopped up on me this year. If it's caught you off guard too and you're hosting dinner, I've got some quick table ideas that will make it look like you've been planning and prepping forever. My last post was also full of quick but impressive Easter ideas. I've got your back when it comes to this holiday.
I found this from my friend Cindy with Skip to My Lou. She always has the best ideas that are simple to create.
- Easter grass
- Easter candy or item
- small grapevine wreaths
- Plates (chargers too, if you really want to make an impression)
All you need to do is pick up a few grapevine wreaths from your local craft store. Lay the wreath in the center of your plate, place a little Easter grass inside to make it look like a nest, and then place your chocolate eggs, or Easter item inside. This craft project is cute, fast, and did I mention cute? If it's really last minute, you could create this without the grapevine wreath. The presentation would still impress everyone at your table.
Chalkboard Painted Eggs
If you have more time and you want to get the kids involved, then here's a great Easter project.
- Primer & non sanded grout
- Acrylic paint
- wooden eggs
- Easter grass
- Grapevine wreaths
Following her instructions, mix your paint, paint your eggs......let them dry and you are good to go. To personalize your Easter eggs, just decorate and add the names of your guests. These eggs are perfect for place settings. Or, you could take the easy way out like me and just use plastic eggs, using stickers or a sharpie to decorate with. Both ideas are great, it just depends on the amount of time you have.
This next idea has nothing to do with setting the perfect table, but it's something you can do for the kids ahead of time.
This project will keep the kids busy while you're cooking. However, I wouldn't put the kids in their Easter dresses and knickers until after they are done playing because this project can be a bit messy.
The kids will love the egg shaped chalk. This is easy for chubby little hands to hold and they won't snap in two like the chalk sticks.
Are you ready for the upcoming Easter holiday? What are your favorite Easter craft projects? How do you get the kids involved in making Easter crafts?
