Easter dinner - easy, and almost free!

I hosted Easter dinner at my home this year.  My husband's family isn't huge, so the meal was for 13 people.  This was a good chance to do place settings cute, simple and cheap!  I don't think I bought anything for the place settings or decor, except the pink napkins.  Everything else was made from items I had around the house. 
I made the pendant banner out of scrapbook paper I had on hand.  Cut the letters out with my trusty Cricut.
I found a blog that made these adorable little bunny rabbit napkin holders that also served as a place card and I thought, that's not too hard, I can handle it!   And it was SO simple. 
For the place setting I used scrapbook paper as a place mat.  Then placed the plate in the middle of the scrapbook paper.  I topped that with a pink napkin and then the bunny place card. 
I dipped the rims of the glasses in Karo syrup and pink sprinkles and use some paper straws that I had left over from my son's birthday party.  The centerpieces where the eggs the kiddos made and some fresh cut flowers. 
Had to include a picture of these "kissing cousins"
