Linky party today. Whoohoo. Last week / the Easter link-ups have been a success!! So many wonderful ideas Easter decorations, Spring dresses, Easter eggs, other Easter recipes, and what not. Here are five not-to-miss ideas for you that you can use to prep for this Easter weekend, without

2 Make your Easter Brunch healthy with this Easter Recipe!
Green Smoothies! Witty Alyson has quite the food blog going, and I am glad she’s been responding to my PLEA – SE give me YUMMY health food recipes!! And here it is: veggy-packed, super healthy but delicious smoothies. I am going to fit this in. Not only in my Easter recipes collection, but ideally into my daily repertoire of ‘so good’ daily treats. How about: like this idea?
Without giving all the details* away, it contains yummy almond milk, banana slices, pineapple chunks, Greek yogurt, apple juice… besides an array of healthy leafy greens. Get the picture? This is gonna taste GOOD!
(* she gives a whole dissertation on the ins and outs of this smoothie (smile))
Now that we got the super-healthy, and easy-to-make Easter drink featured, here’s an Easter recipe for sophisticated, delicate and lovely sweet Easter treat … for balance: macarons.
Making Macarons is quite something else. It is perhaps something to try to make during the Easter break with your older kids, a sister who comes over and who’s a whiz in the kitchen. Macarons are French. And if you know how particular they are about food, then you know why you will even need a scale to make this and measure all the portions. You need a mixture, time, patience, and a steady mind to not skip any detail in the steps. And when you do all this, verbatim, your macarons will look like this. And when you don’t, your macarons won’t look like the perfect Easter brunch hostess gift, but will nonetheless be scrumptious. Which is precisely why I am adding this recipe here.

4. Making Easter Eggs with the Kids
So easy, so fun, so good, so cute. Here’s the how-to making polka dot Easter Eggs. An Easter craft to do with the kids during Easter break.
5. Easy, Shabby Chic Hostess Gifts, for Easter Brunch parties and more.
This last tutorial is for a craft that will give lasting, year-round enjoyment, and that is to learn how to digitally collage images together into a romantic, shabby chic French cookie jar label, to decoupage onto a canister or cookie jar.
So, whip up a fun Easter brunch hostess gift with the free French graphics, templates and tutorial to create this fun French vintage cookie jar label. You can fill the cookie jar with Easter eggs, or some home-baked Easter goods.

Now: for a Party!!!
Again, there will be 3 sections: the regular weekly party, the 1 month-long Easter party (which closes after Easter Monday) and the Recipes party. Please put your submissions in the right section. Thank you for your submissions.
Please link back from your post or a side bar, rather than a page hidden somewhere on your blog with 1000 links on it so that I have to look and look and look for the party. So, in other words, please be a nice guest. Yes, also, you are expected to ‘mingle’… i.e. review other people’s blogs and leave some sweet comments, and you’ll find they’ll come do the same for you.
Time for a Party – General Party
Easter Decorations, Easter Eggs & More
How To Link Back to the Party
The only party rule is to LINK BACK. Please. From your blog to this blog. In-post or sidebar best. A text link (Fine Craft Guild) in your post is fine! Or, use the code in this box instead to post an image on your blog to link back to the party. Both OK.
Thank you for joining the party. We love having you here!
