Decorating My Table The #KmartEaster Way! {and a tutorial} #cbias

I recently made a trip to my local Kmart store in search of items to use in decorating my table for Easter. I also needed to get Easter baskets for Eliana and Alex. I know this is a store I can count on to offer me a great price and the pre-packaged baskets can prove to be quite the time-saver for this mom of three.

In our home, holidays like Easter are a pretty big deal and just packed with activity and visiting. I enjoy adding things to my home to make it feel festive and get the kiddos excited for the day. And since the table is somewhere we spend plenty of time eating/snacking, I like to dress it up while still making it kid friendly.

Anyway, I found everything I needed at Kmart and enjoyed all of the deals I found while I was there. 

I have to admit, this wall of pre-made Easter baskets was quite wonderful. They had all different styles, sizes, and price points to choose from. As you can see, the ones in this picture were all $9.99. There were also a few other price points gathered on the shelves and I believe they went up to $19.99 in price. 

I found the Celebrations by Radko line of accessories to be super cute. I bought a few different items from this line to use on my table. They're great for Easter but I also thought they were perfect for a family table. They're really nice to have out but they're not too formal for little ones. Everyone can enjoy these.
{...And seriously, look at how darling that candy dish is.}

I was spoiled by my company when I was shopping too. Eliana loved helping me pick things out for Easter...especially candy. She told me what she liked and didn't like and even chose to sing a few songs to me while we shopped. It doesn't get any better than that. :)

Once I got home, it was time to unpack my bags and start decorating! {I LOVE this kind of thing!!}

I was able to turn all of this...

into this. 

The Celebrations by Radko dishes looked so sweet at the center of my table with my DIY centerpiece.

 Yes, I love candy and I thought it would be fun to put it out on the table prior to the big, holiday meal being served. And really, jelly beans are harmless. Right?

This is as close as I get to having my own Easter basket this year so I wanted to "go big". ;)

You must take a look at the Celebrations by Radko egg holders I found for Alex's and Eliana's plate. The little girl matches my candy dish perfectly and the little boy is a perfect compliment to her. For now, I placed the Easter eggs I purchased in the holders but these will be holding the eggs we dye soon. 

On Easter morning, Alex will find this basket at his seat 

and Eliana will find this one.

 The toys in these baskets are things I just know my kiddos are going to like playing with, the price of $9.99 a piece was PERFECT, and there are just a few, small candy items at the bottom of the basket for them.

At the end of my shopping trip, here's how I did. {Drum Roll, Please...}

 I received a $5 gift card to the store and saved over $20 otherwise. I also stored up a lot of rewards points and I'm very excited for that! Many of the Easter items I purchased gave me double points. If you're not familiar with the Shop Your Way Rewards program, you have to check it out. It's free to sign up so you have nothing to lose.

PS...Keep up with Kmart on Twitter and/or Facebook to find out the latest and greatest deals.

Now, did you want to see how I put together my centerpiece?

I started with a glass pitcher {$6.99 at Kmart} but you could use a glass hurricane or vase if you like.

Put a pinch of Easter grass in the bottom of the pitcher.

Pour a bag of jelly beans over the grass.

Using the bunny Peeps, stand them up at the inside edge of the pitcher. I used 2 rows of attached bunnies and one bunny from the third row in the package.

Here's what it looks like looking inside the pitcher.

Stuff Easter grass in the middle of the bunny circle and let it spill over the top of them.

Pour a bag of jelly beans over the top of the Easter grass. 

Phew! All of that work made me want to sit down. When I sat down, my new candy dish offered me some jelly beans.

"I don't mind if I do, bunny. I don't mind if I do."
