Easter Party Ideas
Easter is a time to celebrate lots of fun things, including spring. If you decide to have an Easter party this year, try out some of our Easter party ideas to make your gathering a huge hit!There are literally so many things you can do to make your Easter party memorable for all ages. Dying Easter eggs is a classic activity that even adults can get into.
You’ll need lots of hard-boiled eggs and dyes, but you can also decorate Easter eggs using other craft items. Try using sparkles and glue, stickers, scrap-booking embellishments, permanent markers, feathers, and any other fun things you can find at your craft store. Using things like this to decorate eggs is also great for younger kids who may not be able to use harsh dye. You could even hold a contest to see who can create the most interesting Easter egg.
You can also have an Easter egg hunt using the eggs you decorate or plastic ones filled with treats. Instead of filling each egg with plain candy, try other things like stickers, small toys, coins, or even popcorn or small cookies! Be creative and have fun!
Serve yummy food like a fruit and veggie platter since so many fruits and vegetables will be coming into season. You could also decorate a cake like an egg or a rabbit and decorate it with bright colors. Here are 20 ideas for Easter cakes that you can make. You can click on the picture of the cake that you like and it will take you to the page where there is a picture of the cake and directions or instructions for how the cake was made. This Easter Bunny cake is my favorite!
Be sure to let each guest leave with a special treat at the end of the party. Homemade treats are usually less expensive and much more fun to give and get! You can buy small jars at a craft store and layer each with different colored jelly beans or other candies. You can get pastel colored candies too to continue your Easter theme. Or try giving each party goer a small potted plant to remind everyone that spring is here. If you want to splurge a little, here are some beautiful Easter candy wrappers that can be personalized however you would like for that really special added touch.
No matter how you enjoy your Easter, remember to make it simple and fun for everyone!
