Last Minute Easter Ideas

Last Minute Easter Ideas

Easter fell a little late this year and left us plenty of extra time to prepare for the celebration!

Wrong. Well, in my case anyway. Easter still snuck up on me this year!

I thought I’d gather some SUPER-EASY and LAST-MINUTE ideas for Easter… just in case anyone else is in the same boat! 😉

DECORATIONS:

So one of the first things I think about are Easter decorations! Here are some ideas to get you rolling:

Quick-and-Easy-Tablesetting_thumb

I loved the tissue paper balls as the centerpiece for this lovely Easter celebration! Diane @ In My Own Style constructed this table setting and gives tips on creating the look. Also, find free-printables for the napkin rings here.

RECIPES:

Michael Lee West @ Rattlebridge Farm created this beautiful cake! It looks like it took her hours but you may be fooled. See how she put it all together on her blog, here. You could even use this as your dessert and your centerpiece!

Remember this recipe for the easiest cookies ever!? Time to break it out again! Add an easy cream cheese frosting (recipe here) and fruit for mini fruit pizzas or buy icing and sprinkles for a super-fast dessert! Colorful and festive! – Me @ Rustic Honey 🙂
