easter inspiration

i am loving these easter-y images from martha stewart

i love the marbled eggs, and the muted colors, but i what i think i like more... is  the grass that they sit in... cute presentation

who wouldn't love this simple chicken silhouette sitting on top of their breakfast egg... or doubling as a finger puppet 
 
love this place setting with a classic chocolate rabbit... 
... and patterned napkin covered eggs          

  
darling printed chicken with the perfect chicken shape...
and of course, homemade peeps. 

so my plan after collecting some ideas is...
1. cover cheapie plastic eggs with some of the patterned tissue paper i have on hand. 
2. make coconut macaroon nests with chocolate eggs, and make marshmallow crispie rabbits.
3. make a dogwood blossom shaped easter basket for e with the super thick packing felt i have been saving.

...i'll keep you posted!
