These are super cute Spring place cards for adults and kids. Fill a decorative cup (I found these at Southern Season) or baking cup with pastel paper filling, a Peep marshmallow candy and a few pastel Peanut M&M’s. The Paperie section of Sam Flax in Atlanta has a large assortment of 2 x 2 inch papers in solid colors, florals and other patterns that are perfect for a place card; and they were only .12 cents each. Apply a fork tooth pick with glue dots or tape. It’s easier if you write the name on the cards before applying the toothpicks.
Here are the supplies that you’ll need:
- Peeps Marshmallow Candies
- Peanut M&M’s Pastel Colors
- Decorative Cups
- Paper Filling in various pastel colors
- Fork Toothpicks
- Glue Dots

Maker’s Mark® unveiled an impressive art installation by renowned artist Dale Chihuly in honor of the 60th anniversary of the Bourbon Revolution at the Marker’s Mark Distillery in Louisville, Ky. last month. Maker’s Mark, the pioneer of handcrafted bourbon, pays tribute to the vision of the founders of Maker’s Mark bourbon, Bill Samuels, Sr., and his wife Margie Samuels, with the unveiling of this original glass artwork titled: The Spirit of the Maker. Created especially for Maker’s Mark by Chihuly, an innovator who also revolutionized a genre: the art of glass blowing, it’s the first of Chihuly’s work to be on public display in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
The Spirit of the Maker is now on permanent display and can be viewed along with Maker’s Mark historical artifacts during regular operating hours: Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. and Sundays from 11:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. For additional information visit the Maker’s Mark website at www.makersmark.com or contact the distillery Visitor Center at 270.865.2099.
Dale Chihuly’s hand-blown glass art installation called “The Spirit of the Maker” at the Maker’s Mark Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky
The installation, made entirely of hand-blown glass elements, is a remarkable kaleidoscope of colors, shapes and forms. Visuals include deep browns and vibrant ambers emblematic of the Kentucky whisky, crystal blues reflective of the water from the Distillery’s limestone spring-fed lake, as well as and rich crimsons and reds evocative of the signature red wax that has become an international symbol associated uniquely with Maker’s Mark bourbon.
