I literally CAN’T believe Easter is already this Sunday. Since most of us are in college and can’t sit at the kid’s table anymore, we know that Easter is just not the same as it was when we were kids. After the egg hunt we would shove our faces with candy and wait until mom put the ham in the oven. Slowly throughout the day, relatives would start to show up. Grandma sets up her cookies and goes on a rant about some “New Jersey jerk” ran her off the road while Pop makes his way to instantly fall asleep on the couch.
Usually after a few “hello’s” and being smothered in Grandma’s Chanel No. 5 perfume, we start to set up for an early dinner. And usually I would bring out a few plates and be done but NOW I actually have to contribute!
As a guest, you’re pretty much expected to bring something. So, if you have finally come to conclusion that you’re actually growing up, here are some creative ways to impress your family and spice up the dinner table:
Set The Table:
Carrot Utensil Wrap: All you need are some orange napkins, green pipe cleaners and green utensils and voila! You have a perfect set up for the table.

Last But Not Least, Desserts:
Peeps Dirt Cake Cup: If this doesn’t scream “childhood” then I don’t know what does. NOTHING is better than a dirt cup. The best part is that it only takes a few minutes to make.
