Besides cooking and baking, I also love setting a pretty table for special meals. When I was first married, I wondered if my husband would think this was crazy. But, it turns out, he seems to enjoy it just as much as our guests.
A few years ago I challenged myself to setting our Easter table with a napkin that would also double as a table favor. The result was these Easter Bunny Napkins made with just a few simple things I found at our local discount store.
It’s funny how holidays can make us feel like kids again. Plus, we also have several nieces and nephews, so its fun to plan these types of treats for them.
- 16-inch square cloth napkin (I’ve also made these with paper napkins)
- 8-inch coordinating piece of ribbon
- plastic eggs
- Easter candy treats (to tuck inside the plastic eggs, if desired)
Fold the napkin in half to form a triangle.
Roll up the napkin, starting at the point opposite the long edge, to form a long rope.
Bend the napkin in half.
Tie a piece of ribbon around the napkin roll, leaving a loop large enough to hold a plastic Easter egg.
Fill the plastic Easter egg with a few pieces of candy or another treat.
Position the bunny napkin on your place setting. I usually put it in the middle of the dinner plate. Tuck the plastic egg inside the opening in the napkin.
I hope this idea comes in handy as you plan your Easter gathering!
