Easter, Dollar Tree, and Target!

 

Easter, Dollar Tree, and Target!






The daffodils are out and blooming outside my window, but it sure does not feel like Spring.  Hoping the weather soon improves for Easter.  Gearing up here for company coming soon - after such a long, Covid time without friends visiting.  
To prepare for guests and Easter I made a visit to Dollar Tree and Target - and found some great items.
Dollar Tree had a good selection of eggs that I plan to fill with candy and use as place markers for upcoming dinners and brunch.  I use a marker to write each guests name and put at their place setting. I also picked up some vase filler in Easter/Spring colors.  I had some that is egg shaped from last year, but it was not enough to fill the candle holder, so I mixed some of this type in and it looks fine.

Also snagged an Easter basket and some cute egg themed ribbon - old friends will be staying overnight right before Easter and I thought it would be nice to have an Easter Basket in their room to welcome them!
I found these in the craft sections...perfect for chalk board signs or even on glass.  

Always pick up a few candy bars while at Dollar Tree.  Living in an apartment building it is fun to remember birthdays of neighbors with a card and a little treat.
I never leave Dollar Tree without picking up some of the 2 for 1 dollar cards.  Even though Dollar Tree raised prices to $1.25, the cards remain at the $1.00 price.  I snagged several Easter cards for family and friends, and some sympathy cards to have on hand.
Some non Easter/Spring items also followed me home.  I notice these Peds that should work with peep toe shoes.

I always pick up some of these containers when I see them....I use them all over to organize things in the bathroom and other drawers...
recently I cut some of them in smaller pieces and used them to organize our cutlery drawer.  I fastened the containers down with a little double edge tape and they help to keep the drawer neat. 

Always pick up some batteries, too. 

Found this shower comb to help the conditioner evenly go in my hair...even though my hair is pixie short, this seems to work.
Found this metallic tray and now use it on my desk to corral all the papers that seem to pile up each day.  
The next day I headed to Target - 
This riser will be perfect for pies and cakes in a buffet..
And I could not resist these little bunny egg cups!
I love the scent of Mrs. Meyers Clean Day when cleaning up the kitchen after dinner.  I bought some Rosemary for now, Lilac to use in May, and Rose for June.

Lastly I picked up this mirror for only $7.00  We have an oak cheval mirror in the bedroom, but I think this one will be great in our big closet...I can see what things look like while I am getting dressed.  May hang it on the wall, but after only a few days in the closet I think it was a good idea!
Now to get all that Easter decorating out and about - it has been a busy week and another busy one coming up, but I hope to decorate, bake, and get things ready so I can relax and enjoy our company!
Are you prepping for Easter ?  Getting ready for family or friends coming to visit?   Let me know in the comments below.  I really love hearing from you!  Until then, THINK SPRING and have a great week!

  1. I LOVE Dollar TRee as well and get most all my cards there too and a lot of other items as well. And, I picked up two of those risers at Target last week too. I've already used them to elevate a tablescape I did. Love both places! Happy Spring!

  2. You scored a lot of great items at the Dollar Tree store and Target. I love the cards and the seasonal items at DT. I too love that Mrs. Meyers spray Ann. How fun to be entertaining, decorating, and baking for these occasions coming up. Enjoy the week Ann.

  3. Hi Ann! You did good at the dollar store! I always love to see what others are doing with different items. I like your idea of cutting up the little trays to use in your kitchen drawers. Hope your week is off to a good start!
    Be a sweetie,
