Easter Egg Hunt 2015

I thought it would be great fun to host an Easter Egg Hunt this year despite the 3 feet of snow we still had left on the ground and ice-cold temperatures.  It was a B.Y.O.B.B. event.  Bring your own baskets and boots!

So today I thought I would try to do something with them.  I found lots of ideas on Pinterest but the one I liked the most was this cake stand made from a plate and teacup.  It was super easy to do, so easy that I didn’t think to take any pictures.  Shame on me!!
