Make Easter Easy!

3 Apr

Hello Glamourites,

I hope everyone has been enjoying the first two weeks of spring and been getting some warmer weather to enjoy. I have found some great Easter inspiration for baking and decorating ideas that are very quick to do with little cost. I hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend! Happy Easter xx Glamour Planner

I love this bunny butt sugar cookie idea, it’s as easy as making different shaped ovals and adding icing!Easter

If you are hosting an Easter dinner or brunch you can get creative with your place cards and add them to cute mini easter baskets like these with some chocolate eggs.

For a centrepiece take two sizes of vases and between the two add easter eggs, jellybeans, chocolate eggs or anything colourful  to add to the easter theme!

Another easy dessert or snack to try is making rice krispie treats but in the form of a carrot then covering them with icing or a candy orange glaze. Thanks to Frugal Coupon Living for the idea!

Adding a simple tulip to your guests plate makes a world of a difference and makes them feel special!

An Apple a day…

4 Feb

Morning Glamourites!

Okay my title was slightly misleading…yes, I am giving you a recipe with apples in it but it may not be the healthiest of recipes. Guilty. Let’s be honest though, you need a delicious cinnamon bun recipe for the weekend to indulge in! I have been craving them lately and haven’t had any since Christmas break when my Mom made them for the family. I have always been a little nervous to make them by myself from scratch, but from watching my own Mom make them and reading some recipes, they really aren’t that bad. You just need time;  the waiting around to let the dough rise and then the cooking time can be a little annoying. This particular recipe caught my eye because it calls for apples, raisins and walnuts; not sure about the nuts but I love the idea of apple! Give it a try this coming weekend, with or without the nuts, or add your own new ingredient.
