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 would
find the time to get the vision in my head to work out with my crazy schedule.
Last week I was in Walmart and I walked through their Easter section and
saw these Easter eggs decorating kits. 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 also 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...
