SPRINGTIME GOODIES

Along with SPRING comes thoughts of Easter, weddings, gardening, upcoming graduations and so many other wonderful things...

I came across some of my old pictures a little while back and thought these would make wonderful springtime gifts...different from the standard Easter basket, yes...but wouldn't the kiddies just love one of these CANDY BOUQUETS...



...hand-made with yummy, delicious lollipops, candy bars, M& M's, and all kinds of other treats in a sundae glass and decorated with a colorful bow...now who could resist something this cute....and TASTY...



...they make fantastic BIRTHDAY and GRADUATION gifts too...these were made in plastic sundae glasses using nothing more than assorted candy, wooden skewers, toothpicks, scotch tape, colorful bow and celephane/tissue paper rosettes for filler...they are so EASY and FUN to make...oh, you will also need a 3 inch styrofoam ball cut in half...I have given MANY of these little cuties as gifts...

Now for the MAN in your life...how about a MAN SIZED snack bouquet...I made this one for my husband's birthday a few years back.....he LOVED it!!!



...Easter basket recipient not a kid anymore?...maybe they would like a GARDENER'S Easter basket instead...



...chocked full of just about everything they need to grow their very own flower bouquet...find a little flower pot, add some easter grass, seed packet, set of garden tools, gardening gloves...viola' (you could fill the bottom with potting soil first, then add the Easter grass)...just a thought!

...maybe the winds of spring has brought about a wedding to your family...how about giving the honeymooners a beautiful wedding basket like this...



...this basket contains champayne, champayne flutes, candles, chocolates, snack cakes and a picture frame for the the happy couple's wedding picture...and the pretty white wicker basket (which was spray painted) is all decket out in the prettiest white roses...what couple do you know who wouldn't like this?....

...well that's it for this little SPRINGTIME GOODIES post....so have a HAPPY SPRING y'all!!!

I am linking to a sweet little spring time party over at Holiday Haven...won't you join me...
