Hippity-Hop…Easter’s On Its Way!

Easter is right around the corner, and I have been busy coming up with some ideas to decorate the house in hopes of the spring weather I wish for every freezing day.

Easter Basket Pinterest

Since the Easter bunny only gets paid once a month, he has to think ahead of time when planning a certain little boy’s Easter basket. For those of you looking for some ideas for a toddler and an 8 month old, I’m going to share Landry’s basket from last year along with what the Easter bunny is thinking for this upcoming year.


For the eight month old, the items were kept fairly simple. The main focus was food and bath time. In this basket, you could find the following things:

  • Bath toys
  • Vtech Bath Duck
  • Gerber Puff and Lil’ Crunchies snacks
  • “Happy Easter, Little Critter”
  • “The Berenstain Bears and the Real Easter Eggs”
  • Sock Easter Monkey
  • New socks for a growing baby

Oh, how things have changed in a year!


For this year though, the Easter bunny is still thinking about spring and all of the fun water activities and sunshine this cutey of a little boy will be soaking up.

OB-Easter Basket Ideas

Smocked swim trunks

  1. Wayfarer sunglasses {fake, of course}
  2. Foam letters for the bathtub…we love to stick things to the side of the tub
  3. Mr. Bubbles Bubble Bath….brings back memories of having bubble baths at my Maw Maw’s
  4. Melissa and Dough Cookie Dough play set
  5. Floaties for the pool
  6. Pool ring
  7. Welch’s Fruit Snacks….Landry loves these
  8. Brica Bath Toy Scoop

I didn’t include it, but the Easter bunny might just throw in some color tablets for the bath water. Might as well have a little fun in the tub while we wait for warmer weather!

Hopefully this will give you some ideas for the 8 to 18 month old kiddos in your life!

A Little Pink with a Dash of Sparkly

My niece had her very 1st birthday today, and y’all….it was absolutely precious! My sister and her co-worker worked their magic and created the perfect first birthday scene. I was loving capturing the details before things got started.


The theme was all about some pink and gold. Even the cupcakes had gold sprinkles!

Of course, Isabella’s smash cake was a giant cupcake with a little sparkly on top as well.




When you walked in, she had a place for guests to leave sweet messages for the birthday girl that will be framed in her room now.




And the gift table was just as cute with the cutest pink tassel garland!



And then there was the birthday girl!



Who definitely enjoyed her smash cake and all of the cool gifts she received today! She was completely overwhelmed and wasn’t quite sure what to play with!




And there you have it! The best pink and gold sparkly party I’ve ever been to!

Happy Birthday, Isabella! Aunt B loves you!

And just for good measure….I’m adding in a quick photo of Landry.
