A Wee One at the Easter Table :-)

Our first grandchild was born on March 8th :-) Everyone kept telling me how wonderful it is to be a grandparent and now I know. Xavier is so precious and we are lucky that he and his parents live only two miles from us. Both sets of grandparents have been offering home cooked meals to the proud family. I feel very blessed to be a grandma :-)
To make these darling bunny cookies, I ordered the six cavity plastic molds from Fancy Flours and made Covered Oreos for Easter. They work great! All you need is the mold, candy wafers (I found them on sale at JoAnn Fabrics for 50% off), a package of Oreo cookies and a craft brush. You can the directions on the Fancy Flours website.

It's all about the bunnies this year for Easter so I hopped over to Taste of Home and found this adorable centerpiece. 


Center one vase inside the other and insert jelly beans (in any colors you like) between the walls of the two cubes.

Place Peeps on top of jelly beans, making sure to save a few for the corners of the vase. Don't be afraid to squeeze them into the space. You should have enough to fill in any gaps.

Happy Easter! Thank you for hopping by! I am joining Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday.

  4. Debbie, Congratulations on this wonderful news! He is so precious and you look beautiful holding him!! I really had forgotten how tiny newborns are! Will you be "grandma" or do you have another name? Or will you wait for the first grandchild to name you? So sweet and what a wonderful Easter gift for your family. Linda

  7. I know you're finding out the joys of being a grandma, Debbie, to your darling little Xavier. How lucky that they live so close by.
    Your covered Oreos turned out so cute. I used to work with molds when my kids were little, but never knew there was one for Oreos. Thanks for sharing! Also, your centerpiece turned out great! Happy Easter blessings to you! xo
