Sweet and Simple Easter Party

My Sweet & Simple Easter party plan and shopping trip were compensated. All opinions are mine alone.

What do you do when you love entertaining on a budget, and don’t have a lot of time?

What I do is combine a little bit of homemade food with a little bit of store bought items, and throw in something fun for the kids.

Today I’ll show you how I pulled together a recent get together with friends just in time for the Spring season and Easter Holiday. 

Here’s a sneak peek!

Any time I have friends over and set up our party table I start with things from around the house.

That is going to be the cheapest way to plan your party. For this party I wanted to have a mini Easter themed candy bar, but did want to buy a bunch of jars, so what I did was make them.
Using a regular glass and a glass taper candle
holder I created my own candy dish.

Using a little bit of hot glue, I bonded the glass and candle holder to create a tall dish and filled it with NESTLÉ CRUNCH® NestEggs. These come wrapped in pink or blue foil. I divided the bag by color and placed all of the pink wrapped candy in one glass and all of the blue in another glass.

I also used some  NESTLÉ® BUTTERFINGER® NestEggs to fill a hurricane glass which I’ll show you in a minute.

To reduce cooking time, but still have a home cooked feel, I grilled some chicken, made potato salad and paired it with STOUFFER’S® Family Size Buffalo-Style Mac & Cheese.

The kids and adults absolutely loved the STOUFFER’S® Family Size Buffalo-Style Mac & Cheese. I’m always nervous about serving store bought food to my guest, but everyone seriously loved it.

To decorate the table I grabbed those candy dishes I made, two plants from my dining room and the DIY framed canvas from my office.

I placed everything on the table and arranged it until I liked the way the groupings looked.

Once everyone arrived, we let the kids decorate faux eggs using markers and crayons.

Once they were done, they got to fill little Easter containers with candy and their decorated eggs as a take home gift.
