Prepare yourself for the Easter display, be it for a basket in the morning or an egg hunt later in the day.
Easter grass helps you create an elegant presentation for Easter gift baskets filled with candy, Easter eggs, favors, and toys.
Brightly colored and coarsely cut Easter grass puts an exclamation point on the presentation, while subtly colored, finely cut Easter grass is great for understated displays.
At Party City, choices include crinkle cut paper grass, iridescent colored plastic grass, and even biodegradable plastic Easter grass, available in various cuts and colors.
But calling it "Easter grass" makes it sound so limited; in fact, it's anything but.
Beyond Easter, plastic and paper grass has a million and one uses; here, we'll list just a few.
When the holiday's over, save "left over" for clear bowls and jars, for quick and easy holiday packaging, for non-seasonal gift baskets, or you can re-purpose it as filler in gift bags and boxes.
Plastic Easter grass is strong and durable enough to last for several years.
Use it to cushion fragile Christmas ornaments, or give it to the kids for their arts and crafts projects.
They can fashion doll hair and miniature hula skirts out of it, glue it onto pictures and cards, and apply it in many other ways that only children can imagine (so it's best to supervise).
Even better, save your Easter grass for baskets and a centerpiece setting next year, or apply it to an elaborate Easter scene.
Yuu can add it to just about any table display, or place it around indoor plants and accent the decor with Easter eggs to give your home a cozy holiday feeling.
Easter grass has visual mass but little actual volume.
Int other words, it's compactable and extra light simply press it down to store it in a small container.
When you take it out, it will quickly bounce back to assume its familiar fluffy bulk, ready to be used in a million and one ways for the holiday, or for whatever else you plan.
