Yesterday, for the first time in Indiana it really felt like spring. It was in the high 50's with lots of sun. After work I sat outside for awhile just to feel the glorious sun on my face. And I didn't even have to wear a jacket. My fleece pullover was just perfect. Today is another story (rainy and 40's), but I enjoyed yesterday while it lasted - especially since I know that spring is on it's way!
The lovely spring weather beckoned me to search for more spring related products. I can't get enough of the bright pastels and vibrant flowers that are so prevalent this time of year. While doing so I ran across the above Felt Flower Favor Bags - what a fabulous find. (For more information on these products, just click the above photo.)
If you still aren't sure how you are going to decorate your Easter tablescape and you aren't too into the bunny and egg themes that are prevalent this time of year, the above bags (filled with Easter cookies) would be a great alternative. Just fill with hand decorated cookies and place in the center of each of your placesettings. If you are hosting a more formal Easter luncheon or dinner and you'd like to assign seats just attach a little tag to each flower bag using raffia or ribbon. Your guests won't mind that you've assigned seats when they see the pretty - and yummy - bags they get to take home with them!
Don't have time to create your own Easter centerpiece? Have your local florist put together a floral centerpiece integrating tulips, lillies, daffodils, gerber daisies, or any other spring flower. Or, even easier - order a bouquet online and have it delivered right to your door. (For more information on the above piece, click on the photo. This company has many spring bouquets available beginning at just $19.99.) Or, if you aren't hosting Easter and you are debating what to get the hostess as a hostess gift, have a spring flower bouquet sent to their house the day before Easter. Not only will this be a great surprise (right in the middle of their hectic day), they'll also have time to integrate your floral piece into their decor whether it be as their main Easter table centerpiece or as a focal piece on their buffet.
Only a little over a week until Easter! Happy Entertaining!
