Be inspired to host an afternoon of
Easter Egg Painting
Only eleven days until Easter, the spring holiday we have been so desperately waiting for during these often grey and cold winter months.
I would like to share some ideas of how to put together an afternoon of Easter egg painting and sweet treats. Here are a few easy ways to host a stylish and fun party that young and old will enjoy.
Doesn’t Easter make you think of dreamy pastels, fresh spring flowers, fluffy white bunnies and soft yellow chicks? This afternoon of Easter egg painting was inspired by all of the above.
An invitation featuring a bunny and Easter egg will get the guests excited for a crafty afternoon leading up to the holiday. Maddie of https://www.etsy.com/shop/moprint made this one. Isn’t it adorable?
A dessert table is a great way to add a festive touch to any party.
The “HOPPY EASTER” banner only takes minutes to assemble and sets the scene for the upcoming holiday. You can get the printable together with all the other printables in this party from Lindsay https://itsybitsyparties.com
A bunny cake is the perfect focal point for the dessert table. Looks at this beautiful cake made by Brittney and Brooke http://www.bbakery.ca
Spring themed cookies are an adorable way to add another treat to the dessert table and double as decorations. Cute bunnies, chicks, and little lambs are all perfect for the occasion. Eva http://jessikastreats.ca made these. Don’t you just love them?
Find fun ways to display the cookies, such as little egg cartons or baskets. I painted the egg cartons white and bought the ceramic ones at http://canada.michaels.com
Fresh flowers are usually a bit of a splurge, but at this time of year every grocery store carries spring flowers which makes it easy and reasonable to add a splash of colour to the table.
Special holidays ask for special table settings and the highlight of this setting are definitely the adorable bunny plates by http://www.merimeri.com .
Everything tastes better out of a milk bottle, especially if you add bunny ears to it.
A bit of artificial grass on the table contributes to the desired spring feeling and can be used to display the handcrafted cookies and other treats like the mini chocolate Easter eggs or the candy in these bunny containers by https://www.cadbury.co.uk
Use paper fans and/or more banners to decorate other spaces such as the one above the fireplace here. I found the paper love products at https://www.homesense.ca/en
Preparing a craft like Easter egg painting keeps little guests engaged and adds to the excitement of the upcoming holiday. For this craft, all you need are some Easter eggs (real or plastic ones from a craft store), a few paint brushes and some paint in the colours of your choice.
Happy Easter, Friends!
