March 3, 2017

By Tab Byrum

Mark your calendars, Easter this year is Sunday, April 16th so we better get hopping and start shopping, let’s check out MacKenzie-Childs first. MC has wonderful things available this year as far as bunny and egg decorations, I definitely think you can put out your Easter decor now and leave it up throughout the Spring season, nothing says spring like rabbits and bright pastel colors. One great thing about MacKenzie-Childs merchandise is that it really works with anything, their black and white Courtly Check pattern looks great with pastels, greens, purple, you name it and it works. Join me as we flip through the newest MC catalog and check out the bunnies and eggs, Enjoy!!!

Easter Treats: Sugar Panorama Eggs

March 17, 2016

By Tab Byrum

I think Sugar Panorama Eggs are fascinating, they have been around for many many years, dating back to Victorian times, but are still an unknown art to many people. The eggs are created by mixing sugar and water together into two molds after it hardens the insides are scooped out and royal icing is used to decorate and join the two halves together. There is also a little window cut out of one of the halves that allows you peer inside and view a scene created in the interior of the egg. Occasionally you will find Sugar Panorama Eggs in stores and of course,  you can find them online.

The eggs make beautiful decorations and centerpieces for the Easter holidays, just imagine one in the center of your dining table with low flower arrangements on each side or perhaps a sugar egg as the focal point of a floral arrangement. You could also elevate your egg on a stack of books and place it in the middle of the dessert table and cover the books with a brightly covered cloth. However you decide to use an egg they will add something special to your decor, today we are looking at the eggs from SugarEggs.com. The owner of Sugar Eggs talks about how this is something they were introduced to as children by their mother and today they’ve been able to turn it into a business. Join me for a look at these delicate beauties, check out SugarEggs.com website and indulge in a food art made just for this time of year, Enjoy!!!

Growing up I always received a chocolate bunny (or 2) for Easter, my grandma Minnie always bought them for her grandkids and lots of times the Easter Bunny brought me one as well. I LOVE chocolate and the first part to go was the ears and for some reason, I’ve always had a thing for those little candy eyes. Now I’m a grown adult (sort of) and I still love chocolate bunnies at Easter, but now the choices are numerous, and the design that goes into creating them is amazing. I’ve been shopping around and I’m going to show you what I’ve found from two companies, Lake Champlain Chocolates and Conrad’s Candy there’s still time to order these guys and have them delivered by Easter, the hard choice for me is dark chocolate or milk chocolate…..one of each PLEASE!! Enjoy!!! (remember to click on the product name in orange to go directly to the web page.

I ran into Pier 1 the other day to see what was new and loved what I was seeing, one thing that really stood out were all the gorgeous beaded table runners, just the thing we need to jazz up our dining tables, breakfast tables or sofa tables as we head towards Spring. Pier 1 has lots to choose from, whether you’re looking exclusively for Easter, Spring in general, every day or even something that screams beach. I love all the colors these runners have going on and the fact that they are beaded just ups the ante, these runners are easily something you can mix with decorations you already have or you can go crazy and buy all new stuff to go with your inspirational runner. Here’s a look at what’s available, let me know if you decide to check them out, Enjoy!!!
