Sure hard to get it through my head that this is Easter week, it feels like it’s Thanksgiving week instead! Scott and I have gone from thinking we were Easter orphans without any Easter plans, which was kind of exciting, to now being in the crazy Easter mix. Kris and her family along with our Maggie were supposed to be Eastering in Florida with Mom and Dad and Kyle would be Eastering in Texas. Sadly, Kris’s Maddie has torn her ACL and in grounded from any beach or pool fun. Now, Easter is back on and there’s is much planning to do!

I need ideas. I need inspiration.
In case you are in an Easter quandary like me, here are a few ways to make your celebration Kar-Fre!
Maybe just having the big guy in the house would provide some much needed inspiration. How cute is this adorable Easter Bunny figurine with his basket of decorated eggs? Wouldn’t he perfect as a centerpiece for your Easter table or a an Easter egg coloring mascot? Or simply to inspire you in the days ahead!
I would like to introduce you to Bashful Bunny, one of our Jellycat friends. He’s as soft as he is sweet and would love to be tucked into a basket or snuggled during these cold, dreary days. He also has a storybook, Bashful Bunny’s Adventure.
This is another of our Jellycat friends, Quackers the duck. Perfect for an Easter basket or as a reminder that, “You are just ducky!”
Sweet adorable little lamb from Jellycat and because this is how my head works and I love whenever you can have fun with words:
Mairzy doats and dozy doats
And liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too,
How sweet is this gerbera daisy plant with an egg tree tucked into it? Perfect for a hostess gift, an Easter touch for someone without much room, or someone who needs a bit of cheer during these chilly days!
Love these note card tins! The note cards inside are the perfect size to tuck into an Easter basket and for a note to Grandma, a thank you, or just to catch-up with a dear friend. Is there any better feeling than opening the mailbox to a card from a friend? A friend that isn’t Comed, Nicor, or Comcast! Best of all each note card comes with a recipe on the back for the cupcake featured on the front…sweet!
I love this felted chick–she just makes me smile. We’re using her and her friends tucked into centerpieces, dish gardens, and as part of tablescapes. Just like I do at Christmas, I try to buy Kyle and Maggie a little Easter something every year that they can use in their decorating and have as a keepsake–I think this chicky would be just perfect!
Speaking of chickies, here’s another felted one tucked into a gerbera daisy plant in this cool plaid tin.
I know Easter baskets are supposed to be filled with fun and candy, but I like to add a little something extra-special and memorable. Or maybe I’m planting an idea for some of the other events in our lives later this spring like graduation, but how perfect is this picture? I love the message and the colors and the reminder
In case your Easter baskets aren’t just for kids anymore, why not tuck in a Yankee Candle? This is Kar-Fre’s most popular fragrance–a mix of cloves, cinnamon, and love. Also a great way to make your home smell fantastic when you’re entertaining this weekend.
Wow! I am feeling enthused and energized!! I am off to create Easter baskets!
