For many, Easter is about spending time with loved ones, relaxing, and having a good time. Get eggcited for Easter by throwing a party filled with treats, bunnies, and bright, happy colours.

Whether you’re hosting a family lunch, a get-together with friends or a child’s birthday party, there’s plenty of ways to entertain your guests. Hop to it!

Pretty Pastel

Easter eggs are almost always associated with bright, happy colours. To compliment this, incorporate light colours in your decorations, such as white, light grey and pastel tones of pink, blue and yellow. Covering the party area with lively flowers or succulents is sure to invite good vibes to the party as well as brighten up the place.

Party Games

A classic game at any Easter event is of course the Easter egg hunt. Get creative when hiding the eggs around the home and garden; for older children, why not think of some clever spots? Inside a doll house, in the mail box or even inside an actual box of eggs? The possibilities are endless – and you can even add a touch of magic to the experience by putting Easter Bunny tracks around the place.

Alternatively, try a game of “Capture the Egg”. Divide your partygoers into two teams, giving each team four coloured eggs. Have each team line up their eggs on their side of the field. Each team must try and capture the other team’s eggs and bring them to their side without getting tagged.

Tasty Treats

There are so many ways to sweeten up your Easter party outside of chocolate eggs (although, let’s be honest, those are a must). Brighten up the dining table with a variety of treats such as smoothies, chocolate egg nests or you can go all-out and impress your guests with a gorgeous platter of treats such as hot cross buns, chocolates, marshmallows and fruit. This one will be a winner for sure.

You can even turn a regular cake into a creative Easter Bunny cake by sticking two rabbit ears into the top of the cake. These can be easily created by cutting coloured cardboard into the desired shape and using toothpicks to hold them in place. Alternatively, you could melt white chocolate and pour it into the desired shape. Get creative by adding sprinkles, flowers, or whatever you fancy to the cake – yum!
