On Thursday night I had the opportunity to host a group of friends for a birthday dinner, and what better theme than colorful skulls as we were right in the middle of Dia de los Muertos celebrations?! Between work all week I didn’t have much time to prepare, so it’s helpful that I am a hoarder of all things party decor :D The only items I purchased were the plates and napkins! Colorful scrapbook paper helped to brighten an otherwise dull white tablecloth and black runner. We served enchiladas, flautas, rice and beans, and of course, Jarritos! Scroll on to view more party details!
It hasn't felt much like spring here thanks to a giant snowstorm we got yesterday, but with Easter less than a week away (yay!), it's time to hop to it! This simple color block Easter table is easy to recreate and is so eye-catching and fun! Scroll on to see all the details.
Easter grass is a fun, easy, and inexpensive way to create a runner-effect on the table and really help solidify the color palette!
Ribbons and washi tape were great to wrap around the top of each glass to add in a touch of even more color!
As always, thanks for reading, and happy Easter!
These adorably colorful Oreo Peep Easter shakes are seriously the cutest! I'm not a Peep eater, but they're such an Easter icon and so cute (even though their sweetness give me an instant toothache). I was roaming the aisles of Hobby Lobby and saw these Peep-colored krazy straws and thus, the Easter Peep shake was born.
You will need:
Breyer's Oreo Blast ice cream (I got 4 shakes from 1 tub)
Limited Edition Oreo Peeps
Food Coloring (I used neon)
First, crush up your Oreos and put a nice layer on the bottom of each glass. Mix up ice cream, milk, and food coloring for each respective Peep color. Fill the glasses and top with whipped cream, sprinkles, and a Peep! Easy enough, right? And they're such a cute addition to an Easter party or just to be festive throughout this spring season as we move into the warmer temps!
