Happy Pink Easter!

Happy Easter and Happy Pink Saturday my friends!

I had an Easter Tea Party last weekend with my mom and grandma and I wanted to share some of the pictures with you! I also wanted to share some of the last Easter pretties I have created for this season. I hope you enjoy them and are inspired to create your own!
The tea table was set in pastels. I wanted to decorate in roses with Easter this year so I combined them and I am pleased with the results!

We had some delicious food! I made tuna salad sandwiches on croissants, cucumber sandwiches, deviled eggs, and sweet PINK Easter bunny cookies. We had strawberry lemonade and French Caramel Creme Brulee tea for dessert!

My sweet mom, Ginger, made these fabulous scones. They had chocolate chips, pecans, and toffee bits in them. They were scrumptious!

I am so blessed to have such a sweet, loving, creative mom and I love her to pieces!

I am also very thankful to have a sweet grandma. I am so blessed to have her in my life!

My mom made me this sweet Easter cone from scrapbook paper and embellishments. She filled it with sweet treats and it is so beautiful! I really love it and it was very thoughtful of her to make it and give it to me!

Here is a picture of the Easter baskets I made my mom and grandma. I made them from scrapbook paper so they would coordinate with the tablecloth! I filled them with all kinds of Easter surprises . . . some I made and some I bought. We had a wonderful time at our Easter Tea Party. I wish you could have been there! I hope you will have your own sweet time for Easter with your loved ones. It is so much worth the time and effort it takes to plan it!

I wanted to show you a few more Easter pretties before we move on to the next season! I have been busy crafting away! Below is a picture of my "candy bar" that I put together for Easter. I couldn't resist since there are so many pretty pastel candies out there. Didn't it turn out so sweet!!! I made the treats on the cake stand from clay!Here is my set of jars I made for all of my sweet pastel sprinkles. I think they are just darling! I am going to use the sprinkles on some Easter cookies that I will make some time today to take to my mom's for Easter dinner.

I made my boyfriend's mom a basket for Easter and filled it with sweet treats and pretties.

I covered a metal bucket with fabric and embellishments, then I covered the handle with pink, purple, and pearl beads. Isn't it lovely?

This is "Scrappy Bunny" and he lives on my dresser in my bedroom. I thought he needed a makeover, so . . .

I painted him a soft shade of pink. Then he got an ivory basket, some pastel and glittery eggs, and some lovely ribbon and flowers for his neck. Much better!!!

Here is another bunny I gave a makeover. When I started she was blue with yellow polka dots and had a green bow glued on her neck. I would say she has vastly improved, don't you think?

I set up a pink Easter tree on my dresser and she needed some ornaments, so I bought some small paper mache eggs and painted them white . . .

Then I painted them a sweet peachy pink, painted roses on them, added sugar glitter, pink bows, and hangers. I think they are absolutely gorgeous!!! Here are some carrots I bought several years ago that were bright orange and green. I coated them with pastel paints and gave them pink ribbon hangers and glitter. They are hanging on my tree on my dresser too!

I made this egg from felt. I just cut the egg shape from white felt fabric, sewed it together, stuffed it with fluff, added ribbon, fabric scraps, flowers, and leaves. I think it turned out so pretty!

There are some carrots I bought several years ago and they were bright orange and had ugly green leaves protruding from the top of them. I painted them peachy pink, painted some roses on them, added some green ribbon for stems, and a pink bow for the final touch. I absolutely LOVE these sweet pink carrots!

I know this post was kind of long. I hope you endured the entire thing and enjoyed what you saw. I hope I have inspired you in some way today like so many of you inspire me. I want to thank Beverly for hosting another wonderful PINK Saturday and I wish each of you a blessed Easter holiday season!

Blessings to you!

Love Tammy
