EASTER PARTY IDEAS FOR KIDS AND FAMILIES
There are many ways to celebrate Easter, but hosting a hoppy Easter party has to be our favorite! From Easter basket exchanges to Easter egg hunts, this springtime holiday is full of reasons to gather with family and friends. And so, we’ve rounded up our favorite Easter party ideas and decorations for a Springtime fête your kids will love!
Trust us, with all of the pretty pastels and tasty treat options; any-bunny can host a fun Easter party. (Especially when you add some of these brilliant Easter basket ideas to the mix!) So without further ado, let’s hop to it!
When it comes to kids Easter party decorations, stick with the two B’s (bunnies and balloons!) Pop Park City created this fabulous balloon installation around this darling bunny backdrop from Invite Irene. These Easter-themed elements came together wonderfully, and were accented by darling bunny chairs from House Party Collective.
While we can’t resist a bold backdrop, they’re not an Easter-bash requirement. A simple balloon bouquet with an Easter balloon or two will bring more than enough egg-citement to any Easter gathering. As long as your decor is colorful and reminiscent of Spring (hello, Easter bunny floral garland) you’ll be all set!
Since Easter Sunday usually includes a meal, it’s best to focus most of your decorating efforts on the tablescape. Fresh flowers are a Spring staple, so we had Shawn from Flower Bar Co arrange this bright bouquet for our centerpiece.
This adorable Easter bunny bucket made the perfect vessel. In fact, any kind of basket filled with flowers is a fabulous and easy Easter table centerpiece idea. We suggest finding a matching table runner, like this blue plaid one, to complete the look.
Pretty place settings go a long way, even if you’re just planning to set the table for Easter morning breakfast. We recommend layering a larger pastel gingham charger underneath your dinner-sized plates. (More plates means more helpings of that delicious Easter party food!)
We alternated a bunny-shaped plate with an Easter basket-shaped plate for each setting. Mixing and matching is our favorite, especially when the Easter party supplies are too cute to narrow down! Finally, to play up the various colors and patterns, we added some gingham napkins, pink cups, and heart-adorned cutlery.
Fun Easter Accessories & Activities
For the fête, we had the pleasure of partying with Madison Bontempo’s darling daughters, Taytum and Oakley. The little ladies loved playing dress-up in these peach and blue Easter bunny costumes. Tying in a costume element, even if it’s just some bunny ears, is the best Easter party idea for kids.
Costumes make Easter egg hunts even more exciting, so make sure to include a hoppy hunt at your party. After all, the more you feel like a bunny, the easier it’ll be to find every last egg!
If you want to switch things up a bit, try an Easter basket scavenger hunt! Instead of filling your little bunnies’ baskets with candy, fill them with clues instead. Give each child an empty basket and send them off on a scavenger hunt around your house or yard.
The clues should lead them to their baskets, which can be filled with goodies when they’re done. If you need some filler inspiration, take a peep at our Easter gifts and Easter basket ideas for kids here!
As with every candy-coated holiday, Easter gatherings call for a spread of sweet treats. Pink-frosted Easter cupcakes are a great choice because your party guests can decorate them. (An Easter activity that’s especially fitting for those who don’t want to deal with the mess of dyeing eggs!)
We topped our cupcakes off with a pastel sprinkle mix, and used the liners from this Easter cupcake kit. If you’re planning to explore even more Easter baking endeavors, we suggest grabbing this decorating kit. It’s perfect for adding a dash of Springtime charm to your cakes, cookies, and other Easter desserts.
We hope we’ve put a spring in your step, and inspired you to throw an Easter party this year. With these fun ideas, you can be sure that your Easter festivities will be full of excitement for the whole family.
