Easter party ideas guide
Our Checklist for the ultimate Easter party.
It’s time to start ticking these must-haves off your party-planning list:
Easter meals: Whether yours is a family affair or a casual get together, theming your food to suit the season is always a welcome surprise and a nice way to get your guests excited about the holiday. Think hot-crossed buns and easter eggs and bunnies accompanied with an Easter ham. You could even spin the theme a bit with egg and carrot-based meals like a quiche or carrot cake.
For a more traditional spin, you might like to bring an English Simnel cake or similar sweet cake like a Greek tsoureki to the party.
Games: The fun starts with Easter games – especially if there are little ones that need to be entertained. Keep it traditional with an egg hunt, egg painting and egg relay as they are tried and true favourites that everyone can get involved in. If this is an adults-only Easter party, you can tweak the Easter egg hunt to make it more adult friendly by buying plastic egg casings and including things like cheeky mini bottles of booze inside. Don’t forget to buy an Easter basket for everyone participating to collect their loot with.
Decorations and costumes: Atmosphere is key at any event, so get into the spirit of Easter by decorating your space with all things Easter. In other words, chicks and bunnies! Prefer to keep it simple? A subtler option is to deck your home in baby blues, yellows and pinks.
As host, you can never go wrong with a little bit of dress up. Having someone in an Easter bunny suit will go down a treat at a kids’ party while a simple bunny ear headband is enough for an adults-only shindig.
What Easter gathering is complete without Easter eggs? Use Easter Eggs as Party Decoration. Easter eggs can be placed in decorative Easter baskets until the meal is over, when it’s finally time sneak them into their hiding spots for the Easter Egg Hunt!
Party favours: Finally, to thank the guests for coming to the party, put together these super simple Easter favor bags filled with jellybeans or Stock up on extra Easter eggs and carrots (for funsies) during your grocery shop and pop them into a treat bag for your guests to take home. You can further fill their loot bags with themed novelties and toys.
