Had to show you how I used the Easter Printable

I loved the cute printable that I posted below this post, and wanted to show you that I use the things I post too!  You won't find me posting something that I don't care for.  Anyway, here is a photo of my Easter Table.  I made each one of my children one of these little favors that sat at the top of their plate.  They loved the yummy variety of egg candies that I filled them with.  That actually turned out to be their Easter basket.

I also wanted to show you the cake I made.  Don't laugh because I thought it was very cute, considering that I don't do cakes, I don't really care for cake, but I made an Easter cake for the centerpiece for the Easter buffet I spread on my bar.  My son even said it tasted good.  It must have because he had 2 large slices.  It was a 4 layer cake with pink and yellow cakes, and strawberry marshmallow inbetween the layers.  Like I said before, I don't do cakes, I don't know how to ice cakes, and admire those who have that talent, but it just has not been one that I have done much with.  The entire reason I made this cake was that I found the topper, a large sugar egg, that was hollow inside with cute Easter bunny and decorations, from The peppermint place for only $1.50.  I figured with that and sprinkling on a few M& M's, colored Sprinkles, and Hearshys milk chocolate eggs, my cake would practically decorate itself.  If it wasn't very tasty, then my guests could just pick out the chocolate candies and fight over who got to keep the egg topper.  Actually it all went well, no fighting until my grandson age 3, wanted to eat it right then and there and his mother said "NO!"  We had a fun Easter, and I hope you did too.

Your Easter table looks so pretty! I'm so glad you were able to use my printable. Thanks again for the link!

You know what they say about old friends and antiques? They grow more valuable with time.

Glad that you dropped by my blog!

This blog and it's contents go hand in hand with my Visiting Teaching Tips and handouts blog found at If you by accident get to this blog first, make sure to go back to the other one and see all that there is for you there. This is sort of my overflow or stroage blog because I can't keep everything there, so I add my creations to this storage unit and that is my Visiting Teaching Surprise for you. Sometimes however, I do put in things that I think you would enjoy even if they aren't specifically related to Visiting Teaching, but my vision in life is that if I take all the time to make things, I may as well share them and get more use out of them. Sorta like hand me downs but brand new "Down loads". I hope you enjoy these freebies. Drop me a note to say hello in the comments under the downloads posts.
