Easter Get Together

I hope you are all enjoying Craftmates' "Party Week". It's my turn to share the Easter get-together that I hosted last year. It was a small group as some of my fellow craftmates were unable to attend. Irma, also known in this blog as the "paper addict", helped a lot with the decorations.

I tried to be fancy and folded some fabric napkins into bunnies. I found the tutorial from Martha Stewart and unfortunately, I can't find the link now - sorry!

A craftmates party will not be complete without the tissue pompoms. I used some milk glass vases to use them as centerpieces.  

This is the dessert table with my favourite Easter treat of all - "Peeps". I love the marshmallow goodness...yum!!! I also baked some chocolate crinkles which I usually bake only during Christmas. The craftmates have an annual Christmas cookie exchange and my chocolate crinkles is a staple. 

Peeps, Peeps, Peeps - oh how I love them!
The very crafty and creative, Irma, made these paper cutouts for decorations and cupcake toppers.

And now for the food...There were only 6 of us but we had food to feed a dozen. 

It was a fun Easter celebration and everyone went home with leftovers. 

Watch out for more parties coming up!

  5. Hi Virna,

    I'm one of your partners for the Blog & Social Media Love Swap from Swap-bot.

    What a lovely blog and to share it with friends, I would think that would give one incentive to continue with their blogging and not sometimes fall me.

    I love the Easter party decorations you have, the colors are just delightful. I've never hosted an Easter party but I'm feeling a bit inspired now. I'm really digging the Peeps you have on the platters, what a great way to display them.

    Oh, and now I'm hungry because the photos of the food you served looks absolutely scrumptious.

    I plan to pop back now and again to see what new and fun things you've posted about.

    Happy Swapping!
