Kids Easter Party

Hello everyone, today I am sharing my kids Easter party. Every year for Easter we go to the park and spend all day there with the family, but a week or so before actual Easter I invite a couple of my kids friends over to the house and have a mini party for them to enjoy.

 I only set out 3-4 desserts so the kids don't eat too much sugar.

 The biggest hit were these marshmallows that I placed inside push up pops. The kids loved them.

Do you have basketball fans in your house? I do, my hubby and my cousin love to sit down and watch a good game of basketball so of course they ask me to make them something to snack on while they watch the game. I try to always change it up a bit and provide different snacks for them to enjoy, today I am sharing the most recent snack I made for them that they went crazy over, my Cheez-It Mix!!

Before the game started I headed to my local Wal-Mart to buy the ingredients that I was missing for my mix.

Easter Bunny Brunch

I just love celebrating any holiday that I can and setting something up of course. Easter is a wonderful  day to spend with your friends and family just relaxing and enjoying the day. So today, I am sharing a fun and super easy Easter Bunny Brunch! 

I set out mini quiches, cupcakes, mini cinnamon buns, and mini apple strudels. Yummy!
I made some bunny cupcake toppers to dress up my store bought cupcakes.
The adult table had a floral centerpiece made of bloomed white roses.

I found these bunny ear burlap napkin rings at Michaels and just couldn't pass them up. Aren't they the cutest?
How cute are these Happy Easter salad plates from Create UR Plate. Here at the adult table I am using the glass plates which are reusable, I can use them for many other occasions by just changing the plate clings.
I bought these little grapevine wreaths at Michaels and set a chocolate carrot on top of them, each table setting had one.
Of course the kiddies needed a place to sit so they had their own table.
Each setting had a cup full of mini marshmallows which the kids really enjoyed.
For the kids table I used the plastic salad plates from Create UR Plate but look how cute they look with the same image that I used on the adult table. Using the same image helps tie the 2 tables together.
I made these bunny die cuts for the milk bottles that were set at the table. I hope my Easter Bunny Brunch inspired you to throw your own brunch party.

What are your Easter day plans? Let me know in the comments below.

Cheesy Chicken Taquitos by Creativities Galore #PinThatTwist #ad

When I was a little girl I remember coming home from school, going to the kitchen and doing my homework on our dining table. While doing my homework my mom would prep dinner and as soon as I finished I would go and observe her making our dinner meal. My mom would make a lot of delicious food for us and I picked up some recipes while observing her that I now cook for my family. One of my go to meals is Chicken Taquitos, they are so easy and simple to make yet delicious. For the recipe that I am sharing today I decided to add a little bit of a twist to it by adding some delicious Kraft cheese.

I headed to my local Albertsons and bought a bag of shredded Kraft Cheese I chose the Mexican 4 cheese mix, I also picked up a box of Capri Suns for my sons to drink while eating their cheesy chicken taquitos. 


























When I went home I gathered up the rest of my ingredients and began cooking.
