A Gold and White Easter Basket

Monday, March 14th, 2016

We are big fans of Lindt chocolate and love seeing their Easter collection when it hits stores every year.

THIS yummy bunny caught my eye for Jane and set the theme for her Easter basket…

Holler Dollar: Easter Cards

Thursday, March 10th, 2016

Easter is a pretty big deal where we are from in England. It’s second only to Christmas, so decorations, card sending etc are always part of the fun.

I found these sweet cards at the Dollar Tree this week.

A few of the eggs are pop-outs and it’s hard to tell from the picture but that is real ribbon and a cute metallic banner…so great for a buck!

They’ll be making there way to England this week.

Do you still send cards or are you 100% email only?

I still love sending and receiving a card in the mail…one of the sweet little joys of life!

We are planning to fill ours with festive marshmallows and a few favorite chocolaty treats, but these would be perfect for any gift or favor this time of year.

We added a white carnation for a little extra and paired it with a pastel napkin for a crazy easy Easter place setting.
