Spring is the prime time to enjoy what Mother Nature gave us, starting with some of the freshest and most flavorful fruits and vegetables available for the season.
Easter parties are one of the Spring’s first opportunities for an outdoor party. Easter is also a great time to celebrate family traditions or make some of your own, new traditions.
If you’re in charge of hosting an Easter party this year, we have a few party tip suggestions for the perfect party plan for your friends and family!
Decorate with Bright Colors
Although Easter colors typically include pastels, such as light pink, baby blue and light yellow, your party decorations do not have to follow this color palette. Using one bright bold Spring color, like hot pink, makes an energized, non-traditional color palette. If you have kids, they will excitingly want to dye Easter eggs in the days leading up to Easter. Stick with their enthusiasm and have them prepare some dyeable ceramic, or other non-perishable, eggs before the party. You will be able to use these eggs to decorate your house before the party and they can be used for a fun Easter Egg Hunt.
Host It Potluck Style
You can always count on family to help out with food for events! Instead of trying to prepare the entire meal, accept your family’s offer to add to the abundance of delicious dishes to help out. One way to successfully host a pot luck style meal is to provide the main course and drinks. Guests can then bring salads, side items, and desserts. Some of the stress of preparing a large meal will be off you and guests will get to enjoy family member’s special dishes.
Easter Egg Hunt
These Easter-themed games turn the holiday into a good old fashioned field day! Everybody loves an Easter egg hunt, but they really only last a couple hours before the kids are in need of another form of entertainment — not to mention some physical activity to burn off all the sugar from the candy available during the hunt. This Easter Sunday consider starting a new tradition by hosting a backyard Easter party/field day filling eggs with fun prizes, like stickers, movie tickets, or even cash! These fun games will ensure everyone (including the adults) will be having a blast until the sun goes down.
Kids always love a good old-fashioned sack race. Call it a bunny hop race and give each child an old pillowcase or sack to hop in.
Happy Easter weekend
