Made these little bunny cups today for my three little bunnies! So far, my grandchildren are arriving one after another and between David and I, we have five children! That potentially equals a lot of grandchildren! So I thought I should do a little something and start the tradition of a little Easter cup--maybe fill it with a chocolate bunny, jelly beans, a small toy and maybe hide a little cash on the bottom as they grow older. I have always believed that the best things come in little packages, and I also think that the package can be half the fun! They can get their big old Easter baskets from everyone else, but the little Easter cup from Nana will be the one thing they really look forward to!
Made them out of paper cups, covered them in crepe paper, cut petal strips to cover the lip of the cup by gluing inside, attached a sparkly pipe cleaner handle and stuffed with pretty flower tissue paper. I made the tags using a rubber stamp and pretty lavender ribbon. Super easy! Thought about adding other embellishments and decided they were just perfect the way they are! For the grand-daughters to come, I'll do pink! I wonder how many of these little cups I'll end up having in another 5 years!
Here's my three little bunnies!
Happy Easter everyone!

It was perfect! No silly games--just a lovely gathering of friends and family, great Spanish food (menu post to follow soon) and baby talk in a beautiful indoor garden!
