*First, let me just preface that this is kind of a random post* I am not one to buy all the pre-packaged holiday sweets and what-not! I would much rather prefer to do something different like make or create something...so typically me right? Anyhow, I ran to Target (the place where my money flies out of my purse as soon as I step foot in the door on who knows what...example coming very soon) the other day to pick up some much needed contact solution (a tax write-off...for next year of course) only to be enticed to have a look around. Go figure. As I am sure you already know, I found a couple of other things that I did not need. However, in looking in the Spring section I ran across bunny marshmallows, and thought that I really need to put together an Easter basket for my favorite baby girl (my sister's daughter)! I love to find all kinds of cute little things (toys, games, t-shirt, socks...I'm a huge sock buyer for some reason...etc...) with just one or two sweets for her.
While I know my sissy is not huge on filling an Easter basket full to the brim with candy for her, I couldn't help but think that she would absolutely be fine with bunny marshmallow. Don't get me wrong my sissy lets my niece have a little something sweet everyday or almost everyday, but she is so good about not going overboard with it. Yes, my niece is one of those 4 year olds that can stand in line at the grocery store, right next to the candy section and not ask for one thing! I was shocked the first time I witnessed it...granted she looked but didn't ask. So when we got into the car I said that I couldn't believe that she didn't ask for something...and Cole (my sissy) said she never does...and never has really. So I know she's doing something right! Actually a lot of things right!!!
Okay, totally got a tad bit sidetracked - so back to what I meant to talk about...bunny marshmallows...because we all know how totally important those are right? He he :-) Goodness gracious do you think I can stay focused today?
For the third time - Yes, I purchased the bunny marshmallows thinking that they would be cute to put in my niece's Easter basket. While I have made homemade marshmallows in the past, I think the store bought ones would travel better to Florida for Easter. (Of course, I will be buying a new bag when I send them.) Yet, I wouldn't send the bag so I had to come up with a cute way to package them. Which then got me thinking that they also might be a super simple, cute and fun favor idea (to include in a treat bag or at each place setting or something...) to use at a Spring bridal shower or wedding...the whole point of this post! Anyhow, here is a simple way I thought was cute...
Hopefully my niece is going to think they are extra special bunny marshmallow because they are packaged so pretty. I have to add a note on the paper inside, at the top, that says: "Some bunny loves you". Hey she's four, I can be corny ;-) Anyhow, just thought I would share how I get sidetracked and throw together a photo shoot together at midnight...ha ha! Now I need to find lots of other little goodies to go with them.
