Easter Ain't Just for Kids

It's Thursday and still there are more ideas on how to re-use the egg carton. I'm gearing up for a Sunday brunch and even if there are no children on the guest list, I think we adults can be kids again with Easter eggs and surprises.

I'm turning this blah plastic egg container into another
fun & easy centerpiece.

By simply removing the lid, opening it up and filling it with Easter treats like chocolate eggs, Skittles and M&Ms, I've got a centerpiece that guests can help themselves to!

I also included Easter eggs that I colored & decorated myself. The number of eggs correspond to the number of guests. At the party, I'll have each guest pick an egg and look, there will be a surprise inside:

Inspired by the fortune cookie, I printed out Easter quotes for each egg. I think everyone will welcome a few inspiring words like Alice Freeman Palmer's "For I remember it is Easter morn, and life and love and peace are all new born."

If you're a little generous, another alternative is to give out prizes like, "Congratulations, you won a Barnes & Noble gift card" or other little gifts like a bar of chocolate or a bottle of beer. Here's wishing you an Easter that's blooming with peace, hope and a lot of cheap thrills that's simply Tada!
