Can you believe it is already March?? I am trying to figure out where time is going because I seem to be losing a lot of it. Now that we have entered March, Easter will be here before we know it which means it is time for me to start getting things ready around this house of ours. With 5 kids, I don’t get a lot of time to prepare for things so I tend to give myself a few extra weeks to get ready these days.
Thanks to our friends at HERSHEY’S, prepping for Easter has been a breeze this year! They were kind enough to provide us with a box full of goodies (8lbs of it!) to kick off the celebration.
Now most people would think that all of this delicious candy would be for the Easter Bunny to fill up all those Easter baskets in this crazy house of ours. In this house, candy isn’t just for eating….sometimes, it’s for decorating!
To kick the season off, I decided I would create an Easter centerpiece for our kitchen table. Since we finally have a house of our own, I am all about decorating for the holidays and am ready to start new traditions and create some great memories with my family. This is the first Easter centerpiece I’ve ever created and I think it looks pretty great!
Now, if you look closer at the vase, it is filled with different candies in beautiful pastel Easter colors.
This was actually super easy to create and it was lots of fun! Since I already had all of the candy on hand, I grabbed the vase, ribbon and flowers from our local dollar store which made this craft affordable too! Who doesn’t love an edible craft?
Here’s everything that is included in this centerpiece.
Now, of course, I had a lot of candy left so I decided to whip up a new sweet treat……a quick and easy Peanut Butter Kissed Pie.
Like I said, this pie is super easy and quick to make. All it takes is a premade pie crust, HERSHEY’S REESE’S Peanut Butter Eggs, HERSHEY’S KISSES Milk Chocolate and a tub of whipped cream. Be sure to grab the complete recipe and directions below.
Be sure to stop by the Celebrate With HERSHEY’S website for ideas, recipes and so much more! I’ve been checking out some different basket ideas and can’t wait to start getting them ready for the kids!
