Why I Love Easter

Because you get to put candy on display!

Okay, I know you can do this for any holiday, but this is the first time I've done it.
Once I had all the yumminess on display, it just screamed "take my picture!"
The photo above is probably my favorite. I love the reflection on my shiny countertops!
Like my background?
It's a blanket.
(Looks a little better than my stove doesn't it?)

For this picture I used my new "star" filter, which instantly gives you a cheesy 80's glow and turns any spot of light into a STAR!
Totally worth the $4 I paid for it.

I felt like this picture kinda had a vintage feel to it, so I tried to play on that feel with my new Photoshop skillz. This was the result:

Okay, so it only barely looks different. Whatevs.

Turns out this will be the only time I put candy on display in our home.
It only lasted one day.
After Tom and I ate the entire trifle-bowl of eggs in one sitting, he made me bring the rest to work.
We just don't have the self control.


  1. The star rocks but I like your "vintage feel" photo

  2. So cute! My fave is the 80's theme....are you surprised?

  3. They look Great! Welcome to table top photography!

  4. mini eggs!!!!! i want i want i want!!!

  5. All I have to say is that I have never had the kind of restraint necessary to have Mini Eggs on display. It's just WRONG!
