Do you use place cards when setting the table for company?
Most of the time I like to use place cards. Especially if we're having a lot of guests. For Thanksgiving I always make my scripture place cards and lately for Easter I've been trying different ideas. Last year I made place cards using Peeps Marshmallow Treats. For this week's Thursday's Tip, I'm sharing with you how to make place cards using Easter eggs.
I had this idea in my head that I was going to color Easter eggs and try to write the names of my guests on them. The more I thought about how I was going to accomplish this, the more stressed it made me. See, I'm quite busy with this blog and my growing blogging business. All of which is good, but I just didn't know how I wouldfind the time to get the vision in my head to work out with my crazy schedule.
I found these Easter eggs decorating kits on Amazon. They came in plain white and then in black chalkboard. I purchased both packages in hopes of using them as my Easter place cards this year.
You can see they look like real eggs. The black eggs came with a package of chalk and then I purchased the markers to use as well. I chose to only use the white eggs. I'll save the chalkboard eggs for another project next year.
I kept it pretty simple with decorating the eggs.
I also found these cute ceramic baskets while at Walmart and thought how cute they would look with the eggs inside them. BUT, I only purchased 3 and when I went back to get a few more they were all gone. Lesson learned.
Instead I purchased these adorable cupcake liners and placed some pink shredded paper in the bottom and then the egg on top. I also found some cute paper napkins that look great on top of the white plates.
An easy project and a great little take home gift for our guests this Easter Sunday.
