Send your kiddos and their friends on an unforgettable Easter Egg Hunt…
Easter parties have to be one of my favourite themes to plan. I love that they are always so fresh and full of colour. So when Sassy Mama asked me to write some tips on how to throw an Easter Egg Hunt Party, I took all my Easter party knowledge and put it together in this post!
Here are some of my tips on how to throw your own Easter Egg Hunt Party.
First pick your Easter party colour scheme. I wanted a fresh colour palette that reminded me of Spring, so I decided to go with pastel pink and yellow. This bright combination really put me in the mood for a party. I got started by picking the party ware and chose these pastel yellow chevron plates that look like Easter eggs themselves and contrasted them with some polka dot pink napkins. It’s important to find interesting centrepieces for your table, and for this party I used a cute bunny light from Seed to add some sparkle.
Food and drinks
For the Easter egg party menu I decided to pop by an old favourite of mine; Marks & Spencer’s. They always seem to have a great selection of Easter goodies and they didn’t disappoint. In amongst all the usual Easter eggs were these cute hen and egg cookies. I decided to pair these cookies with M&S’s super chocolaty mini eggs. These treats were not only delicious but also matched our colour scheme perfectly! For drinks I decided to keep to the theme and chose some lemonade. Our favourite brand is Country Time, which you can find in Gateway.
Planning your Easter Egg Hunt
Now onto the hunt! When planning your Easter Egg Hunt it’s always good to pick bright coloured eggs as they’re easier to find, and make sure to note how many you’ve hidden to avoid any squashed or melted chocolate disasters.
Here are some great hiding spots for inside your home: in teddy’s hands, the fruit bowl, amongst the bookshelf, inside a mug, behind the curtain, in the bathtub, in your slippers, amongst the umbrellas, on top of a picture frame or amongst some magazines.
Easter Arts and Crafts Activity
The best bit about Easter is collecting all those chocolate eggs, but where are you and the little Easter Egg hunters going to store all your precious finds? We came up with a fun art project that’s great to do with the kids. Instead of painting endless Easter eggs this year, why not create your own special Easter Egg Holders. We took some egg cartons (any size will do), peeled off all the stickers, and painted them in the bright colours of our theme. Adding stickers, crazy tape, gold and silver markers, or sequins is a great way to decorate the egg holders once you’ve finished painting.
Now that you have you’ve hidden all the eggs and the kids have their egg holders at the ready… let the hunt begin!
