Truth be told, I’m not very crafty.
While I can cook a mean (insert whatever dish), I stink at making centerpieces or other “holiday” crafts.
This becomes a small problem because I usually host both Christmas and Easter at my house (see “cooking” reference above) and I have diddly-squat for a decorations.
Not this year!
I made these super easy and colorful Easter centerpieces using a bit of chocolate, some old votive holders, and left over plastic eggs. You can always substitute jelly beans for the colored chocolate eggs and include homemade name tags and make them place settings.
Again super easy. But oh, so classic and colorful. And inexpensive too.

1. Separate eggs by color into bowls.
2. Clean glass votive holders with vinegar/water.
3. Fill each glass votive holder with a layer of each color of chocolate eggs.

Disclosure: ALDI provided me with a $10 Gift Certificate to create my centerpiece.
