Happy Easter Weekend at the Beach!

I might be about a week late to the party, but  think there might still be time to try a few of these ideas for an Easter weekend treat. If any of you know me... I am not a great diy'er, (I just don't have the time or patience right now!) but even I could pull off a few of these ideas.

First up - Peeps!

I don't think I have ever eaten a Peep in my life - but making smores out of them looks like fun!  Hmmm.. Tom did get a new bbq for Christmas, maybe we could try roasting them this weekend? I did buy new marshmallow roasting sticks at the Half Moon Bay Art Festival this past October....
(image source and ideas from  Eclectic Recipes  - cute blog!)

Peeps as cocktail "ornaments" - now this is an idea that I can definitely grasp! Bought blue bunny peeps, will post the images on Instagram if I can figure out how to make them look pretty.
Idea and pics from - she has a bunch of super cute ideas for peeps as garnishes.  Must see her post!

Absolutely adorable!  Peeps swimming in blue jello cups, makes me miss having little kids around. Struggling a little with my "adult" children being so far away this year...

I would add shells to make these lanterns more coastal, but thought that this was a great idea!  Directions can be found Here
