Happy Monday, friends! I pray your weekend was full of fun! We had a very last minute play date on Friday and I thought I would share a few pictures and just show you how you can do it last minute, as well! My kids always love having friends over to play and since it was Friday I thought why not surprise them with friends and Easter “yummies”. I had this idea and texted the moms around lunch time on Friday.
I knew the kids would want snacks because what kid doesn’t, right!? My kids come in from school and it’s as if they haven’t put a single thing in their mouths all day. I went to Walmart and grabbed junk, basically. Hahahaha! But, I can’t say I’d get the reactions I wanted if I had anything but cupcakes and Cheetos. LOL! It brought BIG smiles!
I went to the bakery side and got the cutest Easter cupcakes, a bag of Easter egg Cheetos and juice boxes. I knew I already had paper products from The Dollar Tree, as I love to stock up on those when I see them. And then everything else you see I just grabbed from around my house! I didn’t buy another thing.
You really don’t have to spend or prepare much to make it special in my opinion. Go buy everything like I did and that takes a lot of pressure off right there. Then don’t think you have to go buy much for decor. Just use what you already have. The bunnies I had on the snack cart and the Easter sign and egg banner I had on the table were all decor I just pulled from around my house. This party took me all of about 15 minutes to throw together.
Y’all know how I like to stock up on cute paper products when I see them and these bags were no exception. I found a pile of them on major sale last year at Michaels and have been saving them for something special. I put my Easter tags on them and stuffed them with an Easter Little Debbie pack, stickers and egg suckers from The Dollar Tree.
I hope this inspires you to throw a little party or play date soon. It really doesn’t take much planning or preparation at all to bring big smiles and make those memories!
