April 15, 2014

After the observance, Easter is a time of family reunions, traditional foods, and creating new memories while reminiscing and reflecting. While the adults are setting the tables and catching up with the past year’s events, the kids impatiently await the first course to arrive so they can finally dig in. This year, keep the younger crowd calm while partaking in some festive fun with Easter activities for kids!

Easter Activities for Kids

Set up a separate crafting and activity station to keep all the kids settled in one place. Prepare the area with smocks if necessary; Cover with festive wrapping paper to not only protect the table but to also dress up the space. Here are some suggestions for simple yet fun Easter activities for kids; be sure to set out all the supplies and ingredients they may need before the event so they can enjoy the day while the adults catch up and play!

Easter Egg Decorating

Prepare a few dozen hardboiled eggs for kids to decorate. For less mess, skip the paints and dyes and instead provide kids with permanent markers in various colors so they can draw designs or even just bedazzle the eggs with their names. Other mess-free suggestions include festive stickers and glitter pens.

Easy Easter Decorating Ideas

April 3, 2014

BEasy Easter Decorating Ideasetween prepping the home for visiting family, spending hours in the kitchen perfecting the Easter brunch menu, and organizing the yearly Easter Egg hunt, there’s hardly time to decorate for the holiday! With a few simple ideas, you can give your home an Easter makeover that will surely wow guests.

The best (and simplest) way to create a perfectly put-together look for Easter is to choose a color theme or one reoccuring element such as bunnies or chicks and use it throughout the room. Set up one or two conversation starters that will be the focal point of the Easter decorations, and you’re sure to wow! Here are some creative and fun ideas for Easter decorations you’ll want to try.

Edible Decorations

The simplest way to decorate for Easter is to choose foods that double as decorations like the adorable Cheryl’s Cookie Flower Pots. Set up as a centerpiece during the meal so guests know to save room for the main cookie attraction!

Repurpose Easter Eggs

The kids have turned regular eggs into Easter masterpieces, so show them off! Fill several vases with colored (or plain) eggs and place on end tables, counters, and mantelpieces. You can even top with flowers to add a fresh touch to your décor!

Place Cards & Party Favors In One

Set festive cookie cards on plates as a creative place setting that guests can then take home. Our adorable cookie cards are delicious and individually packaged, making it easy to set up a wow-worthy Easter spread. Each one also comes with an additional $5 gift towards their purchase so they can keep the flavor fun going on and on!

Bunny Ears Everywhere

Head to your local party or dollar store and grab a pack of bunny ears. Hang them on chairs, stick them to door knobs, or just simply place them around plates and cups to add an adorable touch to your décor. If the guest list isn’t too out of control, why not buy enough for each guest to wear – the guests have now become your Easter decorations as well!

How To: Serve Cheryl’s Easter Cookies

March 28, 2013

When your Easter cookies arrive at your doorstep, we bet you’ll be excited to serve them at your Easter celebration on Sunday. So, we put together a cute and festive way to use your favorite cookies for the perfect dessert table. 

First, you will need a box (or two) of our adorable Frosted Easter Cutouts. Next, you’ll need to take a trip to your local grocery store or drugstore and make your way to the holiday aisle where you’ll find a variety of Easter celebration goodies and decorations.

Image

We used:

  • Mini springtime Easter egg boxes
  • Easter egg tray
  • PEEPS®
  • Easter grass
  • A basket
  • Plastic Easter eggs

Take the mini boxes and fill them with the Easter grass, then place a cookie and a PEEPS® on top. If you have any cookies left over, you can place them in the middle of your Easter egg tray and fill the rest with the plastic eggs (or real ones). Put all of the mini boxes in the basket and when your guests are ready for dessert, you can start to hand out your favorite Cheryl’s cookies
