Easter Basket Place Settings

Easter baskets make my heart jump for joy! I’ve always adored the idea of hunting a for a beautiful basket filled with sweet Spring treasures. Why not treat your guests as they sit at the table with their very own miniature edible Easter basket?

Mini ice cream cones dipped in white chocolate, filled with cotton candy (or jelly beans maybe?) and topped with mini pink eggs tucked into shredded coconut make a precious place setting indeed. The only non-edible item is the silk ribbon handle that’s affixed with a dab of the melted white chocolate.

Whose heart wouldn’t swoon over one of these demure sweet treats?

These darling Easter basket place settings made out of white chocolate dipped ice cream cones and filled with goodies will make your guests grin ear to ear!
Ingredients
  • Mini ice cream cones
  • Cotton candy
  • Shredded coconut
  • Mini chocolate eggs
  • White chocolate melts
  • Thin white ribbon
Instructions
  1. Melt chocolate melts according to package directions.
  2. Carefully dip the cones down into the melted chocolate by holding 2 fingers inside the cone and turning until all sides are covered. Gently tap your hand that is holding the cone to shake off excess chocolate. Place cones standing up, on wax paper to dry.
  3. Once dry, melt more chocolate and dab on either (inside) side and press the ends of a piece of ribbon in the chocolate to make the handle.
  4. Fill with cotton candy or other sweet treats.
  5. Top with shredded coconut and nestle in some chocolate eggs or jelly beans.
Notes
You can make these baskets beforehand but take note after a few days the chocolate tends to crack on the outside of the ice cream cones. I happen to like the [i]antique [/i] look but you can choose to dip them again or just wait until the day before or morning of, to make the baskets.[br][br]Enjoy any color and candy combination! Let your creative juices flow!

Fabulous Find Friday ::: Antique Measuring cups

I recently enjoyed an afternoon antiquing with a few of my favorite people, Amy, Bridget and Angie. We had a ball. Antiquing is one of my very favorite things to do but antiquing with some of my very favorite people? Well that is just sublime. My last Friday Find helped in tidying up the loo. This week my fabulous find whilst antiquing is something that I can use all around my house.

My find? These darling antique white measuring cups.

And I must admit that I am so very smitten with them.

I think that I may have actually squealed *out loud* when I saw them. I’m subtle like that.

I use them for so many different things in the kitchen.

And I have incorporated them into my home decor for Spring.

I mean if that isn’t the sweetest thing you’ve ever seen?

A nest that’s nestled all snug in its own nest of antique measuring cups? Precious.

My coffee table is now happily adorned.

Which makes me happy as well.

I may just try them as jewelry holders next. What would you do with a stack of antique measuring cups?  Do share!

Happy Finding and have a Fabulous Friday friends!

Fabulous Find Friday! ::: Towel Ladder

Today is the very first Fabulous Find Friday on Wenderly.

You see, I love to find things. Sometimes I go out on a search to find something, and other times certain objects just tend to find me. Have you ever had that happen to you? You know what I mean don’t you? When you’re innocently walking along in a store and POOF something just jumps out and finds you, grabs ahold of your heart and soul, convincing you that you simply MUST buy it and take it home with you?

Please tell me that happens to you.

Well in an attempt to justify I mean share some of the fabulous finds that I come across on my ventures, I have decided to start a Fabulous Find Friday here on my blog. I figure that it will be both helpful (in explaining to my husband why I must keep up my quest in finding things) and fun and for you!

This is a bathroom at our cabin that tends to be rather sweet, yet very small.

Storage is at a minimum and therefore we needed to find a solution for the plethora of towels needed to accommodate our family. I set out to a favorite antique mall one Saturday morning and stumbled across that darling ladder. I knew the moment I laid eyes on it that I had found the perfect fit! Rustic and simple, not too big nor too small and just the right color.

Need a quaint, tidy and inexpensive storage solution for towels? Try a ladder!

Happy Finding and have a Fabulous Friday friends!
