Pink Saturday/Easter decor/Birthday Boohoo

Hey Everyone! Happy Easter first of all! This is a glorious weekend to celebrate and have fun. Real quick a little shout out to my sweet daughter whom I love to pieces...she turns 18 (Boohooing softly) this weekend. I am happy, and a little tearful over the big birthday!

I am so blessed by my baby girl....she is everything a mom could ask for in a daughter. Thank you God for her!
I bought these little rabbit ears for my teddy bear out of the $1.00 bin at Target...I think they are actually for dogs or cats. And they have little pink fuzzy fur inside...I adore! These little guys are having their own Easter celebration in my living room!

Is that candy they snuck from the kitchen? I wondered where it all went...they have been munching after I have gone to bed!

Yep, this one below has been caught red (pinkhanded) handed! Again in my kitchen there has been a lot of baking and cooking getting ready for the big celebration...we are cooking several breakfast casseroles (Paula Deen's french toast casserole) for our Church's Easter breakfast, and then we are cooking for our big family gathering on Sunday! Yippeee I love all of this!

Someone stole my pink candy eggs and replaced them with blue! Shame shame!

I love this cookbook from Target on making cookies and decorating them for the different holidays.

So of course I made some sugar cookie dough, got out the cookie cutters and started baking away!
Then I made several cakes....

Decided on this as my cake plate...

Woohoo! I had fun...my hubby raised his eyebrows like "What in the world do you call it?" I said it is my Easter extravaganza cake! Hahaha big smile!

Topped with edible Easter grass (Walmart) and loads of malted ball Easter eggs, surrounded with yummy cookies...oh my! Where is the coffee and creamer and a piece of cake?

Here is my other spring project I was working on...a little spring decoupaging!

This has been so fun....I love spring...I love Easter....I love going to church and hearing the glorious Easter music, seeing little girls in their Easter outfits....watching kids run circles around the Sunday School teachers because they have had too much Easter candy! Big smile. It is a fun day. Hope you have a Blessed Celebration.

"Christ the Lord is Risen Today...Hallelujah!"

You daughter is soo beautiful, and with the crown, she looks like a princess.

Thanks for the Walmart tip. I went there and found all the candy you mentioned and it was all color coordinated! Pinks, Yellows, etc. What fun.

BTW- Do you work outside your home? All of you projects, blogging, baking, etc. must keep you soo busy!
