easter in a box (for kids) is my fave

March 29, 2012

This is the only time I’ll ever recommend going to Walmart. In fact, I’ll probably deny I ever said this but scrounge up $1.49 and head to your local store so you too can own a carton of cascarones. I’ll sacrifice my pride and time (geesh, maybe you should open up more than two lanes) for the love of confetti.

sources: cascarones from Walmart, paint + crayons + bubbles from Party City, pinwheel is handmade, felt bows are handmade, mini chicks from World Market (I’ve seen these at craft stores as well)

    I love your holiday (or just because) boxes and variations would be perfect for my long distance 3 year old niece! Any recommendations for packaging the treats for mailing so it looks just as pretty after traveling?

    one could also make the confetti eggs.
    we did that as the reveal for our little one due in may.
    we made blue confetti and even stuck the name inside.

    I share your distaste for Walmart and avoid going there at all costs. Luckily for me, there’s a store in RI called iparty that sells cascarones.

    Ah! I’d love this! I may not be a kid, but I know that if I got this as a present it’d totally be the happiest gift ever.

    Forget the kids….. I would love this Easter in a box!!

    these are so fun! is it bad that I prefer the kid version for myself?

    I think you’d do quite a lot of things for the love of confetti…

    Can i ask where you got the wooden part on your pinwheel? not the stick, the other part. I’ve been making a bunch of mini pinwheels for cupcakes but wanted to make some larger ones for parties.

    I had never heard of cascarones so I Googled them and now I know – how ingenious to fill eggs with confetti. What great Easter in a boxes you did – both the kids and adult ones. Thanks for inspiring me to do one as well. My daughter got hers in the mail the other day and is so excited to open it.

    So awesomely creative. Love it!! Although I may have to skip the confetti part with a toddler. That’s just asking for trouble, lol.

    You have had the BEST Easter ideas! All three posts this week are just beautiful or super cute. The beautiful photography, the bold colors…. SO fun and fresh!!

    I never go to Wal-Mart but get cheap goodies at Dollar Tree and dress them up. Might wanna try that!

    I saw this post and high-tailed it out to Walmart in the ‘burbs but no luck on the cascarones! I checked high and low and even asked a employee (who gave me a blank stare and said he had no idea what I was talking about). Amazon has them but they’re pricey. ahhh, you illusive confetti eggs, you!

    Right here is the right website for anybody who wants to understand this topic.
    You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not
    that I really would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic that’s been discussed for years.
    Great stuff, just great!
