Last minute Easter DIY's

With the French Quarter Fest a couple of weeks ago and Jazz Fest around the corner Easter has been completely forgotten.  So here are some great, fun, and easy ideas to get your Easter decorations on the roll in time for Sunday.  Using a glass jar, place colorful layers of bulk candy.  This easily creates the effect of an Easter basket.  Nestle a white chocolate bunny or lamp in the jar; also make sure to add some Easter grass to the jar.  Lastly using double-sided tape and attach a pastel colored ribbon to the jar.   If you are dining in instead of going to a restaurant then a fun jellybean carrot may be used to on each of your guest’s plates.  Simply fill clear plastic pastry bags with orange jellybeans and tie closed with green rickrack or ribbon.  This is a super easy way to dress up your table.  Another great way to design your dinner table is to make your napkins into bunny ears.  Place Daffodil candy cups around your table to add a pop of color.  And the last thing to do in preparation for Easter is to create Easter bunny garland to hang from your chandeliers.  

If you are interested in making the bunny garland that was shown in the segment right click and save this bunny template to your desktop.  Then print it out and let the festivities begin.  HAPPY EASTER
