Easter Peep Pinata

So let’s talk piñatas! What party wouldn’t be complete without a piñata? When I made my first one a few months ago, I was kind of nervous about it but come to find out it’s pretty easy! You can totally make one without spending much money and they make such festive pictures! Since it’s Easter, I thought an Easter Peep was the perfect piñata to make. What Easter basket doesn’t come filled with these marshmallow treats? So here we go! DIY below!

Who doesn’t love an Easter Egg Hunt and Brunch? Y’all know I love a good reason to throw a party so I wanted to share ideas for Easter! Growing up on a cotton plantation, my mom would always host an annual Easter egg hunt. Our family home sits back in a pecan orchard so it’s the perfect setting for a hunt. She would hide hundreds of eggs and everyone looked forward to it every year. I can remember the small details like the adorable decorated egg cookies she made and the beautiful smocked outfits and bonnets we wore.  We enjoyed a picnic after in the front yard and it was perfect. I am so excited to start bringing back some of these traditions we had as a child that Mignonne will someday remember and look forward to.

Hooray for my very first blog post! This was a long time coming and I am so glad you are here. My name is Caroline and I have a passion for making things. This passion began long ago, I would say even before I was born. It runs in the family for sure. I grew up with my Mom making everything for my siblings and I, from decorated cookies for school to hand made smocked clothes and pretty much anything in between. She also threw the most fabulous birthday parties! There are those sayings “Like Mother, Like Daughter” and “What goes around, comes around” and that holds true for my mother and I. I’ve been creative my whole life but it definitely has come full circle now that I am a Mom to a sweet baby girl, Mignonne.
